Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man went through a profound journey in Avengers: Endgame and delivered an unforgettable line that was a touching callback to the very beginning of the Marvel movie franchise. As it turns out, that iconic moment almost never happened… because Downey Jr. reportedly didn't want to say Tony Stark's last major line.
Even though co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo lifted the ban on spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, we're offering you one last warning: Major spoilers ahead!
And now for the juicy details. During a recent appearance on CinemaBlend's ReelBlend podcast, the Russo brothers opened up about Tony's final scene in Avengers: Endgame. As you might recall, the hero equipped his own suit with the Infinity Stones, snapped his fingers, and promptly turned Thanos and his minions into space dust.
Right before Tony mirrored Thanos' Decimation from Infinity War, the Mad Titan was clearly convinced that he had the upper hand,
But in a move displaying all the dry, cool, wit that makes Tony who he is - he flashed his hand to show Thanos he had the Infinity Stones - and then he said it:
"I am Iron Man."
Of course, the line is a callback to the end of 2008's Iron Man.
"I am Iron Man."
Sadly, the Snap takes a toll on Tony's body, and he dies shortly after that. He manages to speak a few more words before passing away… and then we get to hear him one more time in a heartwarming message that he recorded prior to his death. But Tony's last big line is this proud assertion of his heroism.
But hold everything. As Joe and Anthony Russo tell it, Tony originally didn't say those words at all. In fact, he originally didn't say anything in that moment. An early cut of the film simply had Tony snap his fingers, and that was that. Enter Avengers: Endgame editor Jeff Ford, who pitched the idea of having Tony say:
"I am Iron Man."
Once they heard the concept, the Russo brothers knew they had to reshoot the scene with that line included. But apparently Downey Jr. was initially uneasy with the idea. It took some convincing before he finally agreed to do a reshoot.
Joe Russo goes on to explain that producer Joel Silver is a close personal pal of Downey Jr.'s, and he just so happened to be eating with them.
Once Downey Jr. was on board, the crew reportedly headed back to the studio to reshoot the scene. As we said before, the newly-added line served as a touching nod to the very beginning of the MCU. But the whole reshooting process turned out to be a callback to Downey Jr.'s humble beginnings as Iron Man. Keep watching the video to see more about how Robert Downey Jr. did not want to say his final line in Endgame!

Opening the end of End Game Pepper Pots gets the gauntlet Tony's Pinned by Thanos Pepper Puts the Glove on and Snaps, this is not Earth 616 this is another Earth, Tony Races to Pepper as she falls from the sky, Tony Catches her saying what did you DO she reply's Rescued you, 2 Years pass and Tony starts hearing of People from other Earths traveling between the Quantum Realm just as he and the other done to get the Stones before Thanos, He decides to venture out to see if there is another Earth where He was the one who Snapped and Pepper lived, Tony Searches and on his last attempt he finds Earth 616 where Pepper is alive and well with Morgan. This is how I would Bring back Tony Stark
Alltough after 11 years RDJ really deserved a retirement but why not a happy ending? Here is one option how to save RDJ : remember how Tanos used the time stone to bring Vision Back to get the Stone from his head? The same someone could do exactly after that Moment when Tony Stark snapped his fingers. By using the time stone this Person could tell friday to do the SNAP so Toni wouldnt be harmed and could survive and the gauntled would be severe damaged but not Toni... Not Toni :) after all I think the MCU needs an engineer who is like Toni stark - He is not just inventing Things he is the drive behind everything and this is what Made him the one and only IRONMAN ;)
PS: and this goes to the Script writers If you dont kill our Heros you can always easily bring them back in future movies as a mentor or a helping hand for the New Generations ;)
What?all that money you made and you can't come in for a reshoot cause its to emotional?rick from starbucks went in on his day off to work and he only got time and a half on eleven dollars without complaining.
well come on now, the man had to put all that emotional effort into an ending, this was his greatest role ever its what every knows and is going to know him for, if he thought he did that that last scene perfectly, can you imagine how he would feel to have to change it. worrying it might not be as good as the first time. however im so glad he did it because oh that line was bad ass!
If i hadnt seen endgame yesterday, i would be severely pissed off at youtube recommended for sending me a fucking notification of this video that spoils endgame in the title even though im not subscribed to looper and hate them as a channel. What a shambles

a quick comment on the title:
i dont blame him. The line was super cheesy and cringey. Ruined the moment if you ask. Would have preferred something along the lines "WELL I AM A MOTHERFUCKIN STARK, BITCH! AND WINTER IS HERE!"
I mean, if I was RDJ, I wouldn't want to do a reshoot either, setting everything back up, all the makeup, falling back into character during such a critical moment, putting in all that work just so that the reshoot is consistent, and to ensure with 100% certainty that there are no continuity errors, JUST for one short line of dialogue, I would be upset too
Tony didn't have a few more things to say before he passed away. His last words were "I am Iron Man" and it was Spider Man and Pepper speaking. Not a big deal but RDJ didn't want to speak before Tony died.
