Robert Downey Jr. shares triumphant video from his final day as Iron Man
Robert Downey Jr. has taken to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes clip from his final day as Iron Man on the Avengers: Endgame set.
"Feelings, nothing more than feelings," he wrote in the caption.
The video shows the actor in the middle of a speech addressed to the crew at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, where Marvel shoot most of their movies.
"I have a lot of feelings, but I’m going to take Chris’ lead and save them for Instagram," he says as the crew applauds his heartfelt speech.
Check out the video the Iron Man actor posted from his final day on set of Avengers: Endgame:
Downey's Marvel journey began over 10 years ago when he played the title character of 2008's Iron Man.
He then went on to reprise his role as Tony Stark in Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and, of course, Avengers: Endgame.
The 54-year-old actor's time as Iron Man may have come to an end after a phenomenal 11 years of portraying the superhero, but there's no way Downey could just bow out without so much as a farewell vid for his adoring fans.
And if you're hoping Downey might somehow make a comeback in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, well, Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo clarified during ComicBook.com's live show, "That’s it for Robert. He’s done."
"Tony’s dead, you know?" he confirmed.
Chris Pratt shared his own video from behind-the-scenes of Avengers:
Avengers: Endgame co-writer Christopher Markus remarked in an interview with the New York Times that they had given Tony Stark the best possible ending.
"We had the opportunity to give him the perfect retirement life within the movie," he said.
"That’s the life he’s been striving for," Markus continued. "Are he and Pepper going to get together? Yes. They got married, they had a kid, it was great. It’s a good death. It doesn’t feel like a tragedy. It feels like a heroic, finished life."
