Avengers: Endgame - The Russo Brothers Reveal a Cut Thor vs. Thor Fight

Thor in Avengers: Endgame

In Avengers: Endgame, Captain America fought a younger version of himself. According to co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo, Thor almost had a similar throw-down in the film.

On the Happy Sad Confused podcast, the Russos confirmed they planned a fight sequence between Lebowski Thor and Buff Thor, which they discuss around 16:30 in the episode. "We did have that," they told the host. "There was a sequence where they finally confront one another in Asgard. I can’t remember exactly why we moved off of that. I think it got overly complicated and then we liked the Cap vs. Cap better."

Instead, they decided to go with a storyline involving Thor and his mother. "The storyline between Thor and his mother was so resonant. That was really more part of Thor’s journey and repair than confronting his former self," they explained.
