While there were many great scenes in Avengers: Endgame, Robert Downey Jr.’s now-iconic final scene as Iron Man likely tops the lists of most fans. As it turns out, another scene with iconic potential almost made it into the film. The scene would have sent RDJ’s Tony Stark to Asgard, the homeworld of Thor.
Avengers: Endgame co-writer Stephen McFeely recently spoke with CinemaBlend and discussed the scene, you can check out what he had to say below.
“Well we tried one that just wasn’t that interesting in our first draft, and that’s how we ended up going to The Avengers and Stark Tower and all that. But we had a couple good things. It was basically going to Asgard in a different way because the Space Stone was technically in a vault there, so Tony Stark was wearing a stealth suit. But of course Heimdall could see him, so Heimdall’s fighting an invisible Tony Stark while Thor’s doing something else. And it was just like ‘Why don’t we go to The Avengers?’”
Had the scene been realized it would have been during what many feel is the worst film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor: The Dark World, and would have had Heimdall do battle against an invisible Tony Stark. While I, and I assume many others would have enjoyed seeing that fight scene, it was not to be, and thinking about it, it was probably for the best, as I am very content with what we received in the film.
