It’s always a great day for Marvel fans like me when remotely anything related to the MCU finds it’s way to the internet. If you’re part of the gang that bawled their eyes out at the end of Avengers: Endgame, you’ll be happy to know that a deleted scene from Avengers: Infinity War showing how Bruce Banner transformed into the smart Hulk has surfaced online. For those unaware, Smart Hulk came into being when the personalities of Hulk and Bruce Banner merged during the battle with Cull Obsidian (aka one of Thanos’ cronies) in the Infinity War. We first found out that smart Hulk was first supposed to feature in Infinity War when the cast and makers had been on the press tour for Endgame. The scene features Smart Hulk, Black Widow, and Falcon. The scene is a rough cut with the visual effects not been done fully and you can see Mark Ruffalo in his mo-cap suit for the most part. The clip has been doing the rounds again and fans think we deserved this at the end of Infinity War.
I love Infinity War, but we deserved to see Smart Hulk’s transformation in the final film. pic.twitter.com/UnbAjH3lE0

The writers of Infinity War and Endgame Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely had said that the reason they didn’t include this scene was that it didn’t seem right to include this small success of Bruce when the rest of the world was going through such a huge loss. Either way, we’re glad to see these deleted clips.
The next Marvel movie to release will be the much anticipated Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson in the lead. This will be the last Marvel movie, Scarlett Johansson will be starring in. In the MCU she hands over her baton as Black Widow to Florence Pugh.
