    It was so well done. He had Pepper right beside him as well as Rhodey and Parker.

    They played it just right having it be those around him reacting. It was smart, and honestly probably the hardest thing an actor like RDJ ever had to do and here's why... RDJ is a very "look at me" type of performer. He is in the scene and your attention is on him. Actors LOVE death scenes. They are the absolute focus of the moment and they get to either dig deep and get really into the character's dying thoughts or they get to ham it up and tug at our heartstrings.

    The decision was made to have Tony be silent or RDJ chose to do that. Either way, it's not at all what any of us probably thought of as RDJ's last moments as the character. And that's just brilliant shifting of expectations. The character known for his verbosity is dead silent, no pun, as the other performers take on the heavy lifting of getting the dramatic impact across to the audience in a multitude of ways. Cheadle doing his quiet, stoic acceptance. Holland's grasping sorrow. Paltrow's barely holding it in stiff upper lip and committed comforting... All while RDJ just sits there.


    Best part... They had their cake and ate it too because of course Tony does get a goodbye to the audience and RDJ does get to pull at our heartstrings one last time by having his last words be to Tony's child, Morgan. I refuse to believe this wasn't worked out between the Russos and RDJ, hashing out probably multiple ways of sending off Iron Man so that it was just right.

    Agreed. It was such a superb story arc overall for the character and his performances in all of the movies have been consistently excellent and evolving. I was actually struck by how much of an impact his guest role had on me in Homecoming, especially the scene where it’s him coming out of the suit and really giving Peter the tough love/punishment.

    He wasn’t just a one trick pony constantly giving out quips. He gave such a layered performance in each film. What fantastic casting and truly a terrific performer.

    I wonder how they will carry Iron Man forward in several years. Via Rhodey? There are still so many fantastic stories from the iron comics to adapt

    This is a very good detailed analysis of Tony Stark journey in the MCU! Both he and Steve Rogers have had an important arc. Iron Man is head, Cap is the cornerstone, and Thor is the muscle.

    So in the scene where Tony drives up to avengers HQ and gives Steve back his shield I also see Tony pull out a little orange box of some kind and it reminded me...

    B.A.R.F never turned out to be a thing in End Game, why were there set photos? Trolling?

    Also, when Steve hesitates to take the shield Tony says "Why? I made it for you"... What??

    First the box contained the time wrist GPS devices for the team

    Second Tony said "He made it for you" referring to his father Howard Stark

    Watched the first Iron Man for the first time in a while tonight, finally on 4K. And while I had lots of issues with Endgame, Iron Man’s arc wasn’t one of them.

    Lots of lines in IM1 take on a new meaning now though to me, like Yinsen telling Stark not to waste his life with his last breath. And just as much, if not more so, Tony telling Pepper ‘I shouldn’t be alive, unless it was for a reason.....’

    Just made an awesome movie even more so for me now.

    Yeah, those lines are even better now with what came to pass.

    This has probably been asked and covered in this past, if so, my apologies since I don't lurk this forum as much as some of you guys do.

    My question is, how do you guys think Marvel would bring Tony Stark back into the MCUverse?

    The most likely is as an AI for whatever version of Iron lad ironheart ect they replace Iron man with, but there are other possibilities

    He could be on the What If tv show at some point.

    Any multiverse story can have an alt version of him in it....
    Likewise any time travel story may

    My personal favorite is that since Iron man, not adam warlock welded the guantlet, a magus version of Tony could appear... though that wouldn’t be the real tony...

    The What if scenario is really plausible, or a voice over in future installments, that's for sure.


    I still think MCU will bring the whole OG cast back, perhaps in a decade or to celebrate the MCU's 20th anniversary or something.
