Avengers: Endgame deleted scene sees tribute to Iron Man, hints at Gamora's fate in MCU
The newly-released Avengers: Endgame deleted scene sees Gamora walking away after Tony Stark's death, indicating that she is alive after Iron Man's snap.
Months after Avengers: Endgame, USA Today has unveiled an exclusive deleted scene from the film. The clip shows the heartbreaking moment when Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man sacrifices his life in order to save the cosmos from Thanos' plan of universal annihilation.
Instead of the scene fading into black, as shown in the theatrical release, the Avengers are seen paying a touching tribute to Iron Man. One after the other, Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), Nebula (Karen Gillian), Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) kneel down in front of the fallen hero.
The release of this scene has led to Gamora trending on Twitter. The only person who is not seen not kneeling is Gamora, which has led to various fan theories. The scene perhaps indicates that this is not the version of Gamora who rebels against her father Thanos, but the 2014 version, who was a part of her father's army and does not know any of the Avengers.
The final chapter of the Infinity Saga had left many questions unanswered, one of the most biting of those doubts was Gamora's fate. But the fact that she is in the scene proves that she has survived Iron Man's snap, setting the scene for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3.

Speaking about excluding the scene from the final cut, directors Joe and Anthony Russo tell USA Today, "It’s a beautiful scene with moving performances, but we filmed it prior to Tony Stark’s funeral. The funeral scene ultimately became a more resonant and emotional reflection on Tony’s death for us."
Gamora's walking away in the end from the scene has generated a plethora of reactions across Twitter. While some fans are heaving a sigh of relief realising that she is alive, others have commented on Gamora's vanishing act.

Golshifteh Farahani on making television debut with Apple TV's Invasion: Most extraordinary experience of my life
“I was one of those dinosaurs who was so loyal to movies and cinema,” Farahani says. “I never took any proposition seriously because it was a bit like I wanted to keep cinema alive.”
To see a couple of privileged folk, frantically trying to scramble their way to safety, their faces whiter than their original white after what they have just seen. It is oddly satisfying to see how it ends for them, because I know it will.
