Why Avengers Endgame cut emotional Tony Stark kneeling scene

Posted on

You’d be forgiven for having a lot of questions about Avengers: Endgame. (Let’s face it, we have 50 about the Quantum Realm alone.)

Fortunately, Endgame‘s directors, Joe and Anthony Russo, have spent some time on Reddit answering fans’ burning questions about the Marvel epic, and have even explained the reasons behind some of their creative decisions.

The latest insight? Exactly why a scene featuring the Avengers kneeling before Tony Stark was cut from the film’s final version.

Revealing all in the AMA session, Joe and Anthony told fans that they wanted to avoid a “fight” between the kneeling scene – which we’ve explained here – and a later moment from Tony’s funeral.

“We found the Avengers kneeling scene incredibly emotional as well, but when played in the run of the film, it felt incredibly similar to the moment when all of the heroes stood on the shore at Tony’s funeral, paying their respects to him outside his home,” they said.

“The two scenes, when in the film together, seemed to fight one another, and created a repetitious ending.”

The Russo Brothers’ decision to omit the scene – and any other decision, really – was backed by Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, who recently revealed how much of Endgame he would change if he was given the opportunity.

The answer? Nothing at all. “I thought about this question for a long time, and I honestly don’t think I would change a thing,” Feige said earlier this week.

Well, you know what they say. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
