Marvel releases emotional 'Avengers: Endgame' scene that didn't make it into the final movie
If you still haven't seen Avengers: Endgame, just know that it's been three months and you've had plenty of time to get your butt to the theatre. Do you not care about pop culture and keeping up with the times at all?
Well, if that's you and you're still planning on seeing the 22nd film and finale to the Marvel series, beware that this article contains spoilers. Though, people have been talking and posting on social media about the concluding movie for the past 90 days, and there's no way you don't already know everything.
Watch this touching video of Robert Downey Jr.'s last day on set:
A deleted scene from Avengers: Endgame has just been released before the Blu-ray pre-order of the movie. This part was meant to come after Tony Stark wielded the Infinity Stones to defeat Thanos.
Because she knows he won't survive, Pepper Potts kisses him gently on the cheek. Following, all the avengers and other characters take a knee one by one amidst the fiery hellscape of destruction behind them.
The USA TODAY Life Twitter account shared the exclusive video with the caption: "We have an EXCLUSIVE Avengers deleted scene from Endgame that gives fans a heroic must-see moment."
As goosebumps-enciting as this cut part is, directors Joe and Anthony Russo said the scene was filmed prior to that of Tony Stark's funeral, which they believed to be much more touching. They said the included scene was both more emotional and resonant than the unnecessary cut part.
But fans on Twitter think the cut might not have been the best idea. They were quick to show their support, as well as bash Gamora for being the only one to not respect Iron Man's death.
One user wrote: "Gamora when she saw tony’s corpse and everyone kneeling." Another wrote:
Though the cut scene sparked a healthy dose of memes, I think we can all agree that Tony Stark's startling death is no less shocking or touching seeing it in a new way.
