The epic remaining showdown between Earth’s mightiest heroes and Thanos’ invading military, Avengers: Endgame culminated in a finger snap to finish all finger snaps. Not solely did it flip the alien enemies into mud, together with the unstoppable Mad Titan himself, it dropped at an finish the decade-spanning Infinity saga and ended the lifetime of Earth’s finest defender, Tony Stark aka Iron Man. Sacrificing himself in a selfless, noble act that many had usually doubted he was able to, Iron Man even managed to utter the right line earlier than snapping his fingers and bringing the battle to an finish. But it has now emerged that Stark’s final line was nearly very totally different.
The man behind the iron masks himself, Robert Downey Jr. just lately revealed that as an alternative of the pitch good phrase that Stark does utter while wanting Thanos instantly within the eye with the form of defiance the beloved character has change into identified for, he nearly…made a joke.
Apparently that is the road that the actor wished to say throughout Iron Man’s remaining second in Avengers: Endgame. Whilst kneeling amongst the our bodies of fallen enemies and comrades, he wished to stare-down the mighty Thanos and make one final quippy comment. Though this may occasionally sound very on-brand for the continuously quipping Tony Stark, most would little question agree that what we ended up with is vastly higher.
Of course, realizing what we do about Robert Downey Jr, there’s each probability that he was merely making one other joke when he revealed this jokey choice for Tony Stark’s final moments, however it’s also no secret that the seek for the best final line was an arduous one. In truth, the road that ended up within the theatrical launch was initially thought up by Avengers: Endgame editor Jeffrey Ford. The search took so lengthy, with the eureka second not hitting till Ford was on the slicing room flooring, that the manufacturing needed to be reassembled rapidly (not not like the assembling that takes place on the movie’s finale) in order that the road might be added in.
For those that might have forgotten Iron Man’s conclusion, he expertly brings us again to the very first Iron Man, and the very first film within the MCU, by countering Thanos’ threatening “I am Inevitable” with the now iconic “I am Iron Man”. Before this although the unique lower of Avengers: Endgame had Tony saying nothing in any respect and easily snapping his fingers, a transfer which might have been much more jarring than a joke contemplating the hyper-verbal nature of the character.
Thankfully, it was all price it ultimately because the finale caps off Iron Man’s story, and the Infinity saga, completely with a great combination of blockbuster scale, nostalgia and intimate character beats. You can relive Tony Stark’s satisfyingly unfunny remaining moments on Blu Ray and DVD now. This information comes from ComicBook.com
