By changing some characters, the plan to defeat Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War would have gone well. But the villain got the Gems and wiped out half the life of the Universe.
In the short titled Marvel Battleworld, the team formed by Iron Man, Spider-Ham, Baby Groot, Throg (Frog Thor) and the Captain Marvel fight against Thanos to retrieve the Infinity Gauntlet. Her plan is to blind him and grab his arms and legs, while the Gauntlet is removed. Exactly like in the movie Avengers: Infinity War (2018).
In the Marvel movie the team consisted of Iron Man, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Mantis, Drax and Star lord. They almost succeeded, until Nebula mentions Gamora and Star lord it ruins everything. After that they are defeated and Thanos goes to Earth to get the last Infinity Stone. Leaving one last chance at Avengers: Infinity War to Thor. But it also fails, since it does not aim in the head and the villain can make his famous "snap".
However, the Battleworld short shows that his original attack would have worked.
Marvel Battleworld is a series of short cartoons on the channel Marvel HQ in Youtube. The series was created to complement the Funko board game system, in which players could fight Thanos as characters in the movies. Battleworld is something of an alternate Marvel universe built by Thanos.
In the first episode, Iron Man is sent to the battle world, and he meets a group of well-known heroes. He teams up with Throg, Spider-Ham, Captain Marvel, and Baby Groot to defeat Thanos in a series of six episodes in total. In the end, the group holds Thanos down while Captain Marvel takes the Gauntlet, thus defeating the Mad Titan.
So if Captain Marvel had been in that battle or simply Star Lord had not asked for the head, the movie Avengers: Infinity War it would have ended differently. Although it never existed Avengers: Endgame (2019).
