Raise your hand if you trekked to theaters for the Avengers: Endgame rerelease, needing to see your favorite Avengers just one more time but also super excited for the Stan Lee tribute and the deleted scenes you were promised. Raise your other hand if you were disappointed by the scene you got. Now, wave both hands around gleefully because we all just got the deleted scene we *truly* deserve!
Now officially the highest-grossing movie of all time, Avengers: Endgame was quite the emotional rollercoaster. From the support group and the missing loved ones to the epic deaths and tearful farewells, it was a lot — and we didn’t even see it all.
Today, a deleted scene from the home video release surfaced on usatoday.com, and we were not ready. If you are a weirdo who has yet to see Endgame, but still came here to read this, you may want to avert your eyes because spoilers are coming in 3, 2, 1. …
The Avenger who kicked it all off in 2008, Iron Man laid it all on the line when he fashioned the infinity stones into a new gauntlet and used it to finally — finally! — turn Thanos and his evil army into ash. As you know, once he’s saved pretty much the whole universe, Tony Stark dies on the battlefield after Pepper Potts tells him it’s OK to rest.
In theaters, that scene is followed by one showing everyone putting the pieces of their lives back together. But we were cheated, guys. The new deleted scene shows us the immediate aftermath of Stark’s sacrifice, and it also answers some lingering questions that fans have — where you at, Gamora?!
Check it out below!
“It’s a beautiful scene with moving performances, but we filmed it prior to Tony Stark’s funeral,” directors Joe and Anthony Russo tell USA Today. “The funeral scene ultimately became a more resonant and emotional reflection on Tony’s death for us.”
Avengers: Endgame releases on Blu-ray and DVD on Aug. 13 and digital HD tomorrow.
