Things We Saw Today: Deleted Thanos/Gamora Scene Gives More Insight to Their Relationship
A deleted scene from Avengers: Infinity War shows a flashback created by Thanos, using the reality stone to emotionally manipulate Gamora into thinking that his abusive treatment of her is love. We see a younger version of Gamora, as one of Thanos’ enforcers, delivering the severed head of a king who tried to defy Thanos. In classic gaslighting fashion, Thanos tells Gamora that she seemed happy then and also reveals that he “let her” leave and never made her do anything she didn’t want to do. It then follows a familiar thread of Thanos revealing that he knows Gamora lied about not finding the soul stone.
We know from the Russo brothers that there were things that were cut from the film that would give us more insight to the relationship between Gamora and Thanos. While this scene is interesting, it just further establishes things we already know. I’m hoping that if we do get more Thanos/Gamora scenes, they’ll do justice to Gamora’s character instead of putting more sad-daddy vibes onto Thanos.
