An alternative scene from Avengers: Endgame of Black Widow’s death has gone viral that has people in bits. The scene in question is the one where Scarlett Johansson aka Black Widow sacrifices herself while Jeremy Renner aka Hawkeye takes the Soul Stone. Avengers: Endgame was talked about Iron Man’s death but it overshadowed Black Widow’s which was way more tearing and sacrificial in nature. The scene that was shown in the film sees both Black Widow and Hawkeye attempting to stop the other from throwing themselves off a cliff.
While the scene had its emotional element, it could not eclipse Iron Man’s death and was not as memorable as it should have been. Nevertheless, it was still heart-wrenching. In the viral clip with an alternate ending, we see Black Widow and Hawkeye confronted with a small contingent of Thanos's army. In the clip, both Hawkeye and Black Widow are shot but as the latter sees Thanos approaching, she throws herself off the cliff and ultimately sacrifices herself, while Hawkeye looks on helplessly.
Although Marvel fans do not criticize Avengers: Endgame but the response this clip has got suggests that people would have preferred this alternative ending more. Check out some of the reactions below.

Honestly, this looks and feels 10x times better than that bullshit in the actual film. Still think shithawk should have bit it instead. https://t.co/AF7eayL3WC

Are you kidding me? This was sooooo much better!!!!! I was salty as hell at the way she died. You know they did this so RDJ would have all of the glory cause you totally forgot she died by the end.

Previously, Jeremy had confirmed that Natasha’s death scene was not planned the way it was shown in the film. He had revealed that the original scene had featured Thanos who was supposed to cross paths with Black Widow and Hawkeye in Vormir. However, he said that the ending in the film was the right decision as Natasha’s sacrifice hit us much harder than a fight with Thanos.
