Video: Where is Gamora? Itâ€™s one of the biggest questions at the end of Avengers: Endgame and, in a newly released deleted scene, the question is almost answered. More importantly though, that answer comes amid a whole new reaction to the death of one of the MCU’s most beloved characters.
The scene comes to us from USA Today. Here it is.

So why did this scene get cut? Was Marvel worried about comparisons to the NFL or something? Not at all.
â€œItâ€™s a beautiful scene with moving performances, but we filmed it prior to Tony Starkâ€™s funeral,â€ Joe and Anthony Russo told USA Today. â€œThe funeral scene ultimately became a more resonant and emotional reflection on Tonyâ€™s death for us.â€
That makes sense. Especially because the battle was so fresh in everyoneâ€™s minds at this point. Having a few days to process it, and everyone dress up in black suits, feels more real and appropriate. Still, as a deleted scene, seeing all these characters bow to Stark has a certain power to it.
As for the Gamora bit, cutting this also leaves the question open as to where she went. If this scene was in the movie, weâ€™d know for a fact sheâ€™s still alive. (And, frankly, the fact they shot this proves thatâ€™s where everyone was leaning.) She didnâ€™t know Stark, though â€” so her leaving fits with her personality, and sets up possibilities for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
All in all, itâ€™s a very interesting scene, one weâ€™re glad to we got to see. And there are more coming,Â too. Avengers: Endgame hits digital HD Tuesday and Blu-ray August 14.
