  • Also in Russo Brother news, the pair and writers sat down at SDCC to give a glimpse of what may have been in Infinity War/Endgame including decapitated Avengers, Thor fighting a Midgard serpent and Red Skull/Cap team-up that was scrapped after Hugo Weaving declined to reprise his First Avenger villain. Vanity Fair has the most complete wrap up of all of these
