It was actually the World Security Council that was going to nuke New York. So it was the secret, shadowy world government.

Disney are making a final push to make Endgame the highest grossing film of all time. They're doing this by rereleasing Endgame in selected theatres with a deleted scene after the credits. Considering they're 30 million dollars off, they might just do it.

That is a kind of marketing genius, but they could take this a lot further.

They ought to have, say, three different “deleted” scenes, and show just one of them after the credits of each screening so you need multiple viewings to see them all.

And one of them should be rare.

Yeah, except not with the crucial metaphorical "whodunnit" scene, just a bonus scene.

Haha, I can see someone trying that. But the truth is that Endgame is nearing the end of its cinematic run and Disney are looking to start pushing Toy Story 4 now. It certainly would have been a feather in Disney's cap if they could have made it the highest grossing film in history, but they'll have to settle with it being the most successful film they've ever done instead.

Something always bugged me about the end of Ragnarok and how the Asgardians fare at the beginning of Endgame.

Its a nitpick to be sure, its just something that stood out to me.
