“I am Iron Man.” These are the last words of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) iron man And avengers: endgame, And as four-time Marvel directors Anthony and Joe Russo pointed out, “You don’t want to f–up Tony Stark’s last line.” A snap of Iron Man’s armored fingers follows those four words, the cosmic power of the Infinity Stones wipes out the “inevitable” Thanos (Josh Brolin) and saves the universe—at the cost of Stark’s life. But executive producer Jon Favreau, who directed the first two iron man films and helped launch the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it weighed whether killing Iron Man would “devastate” moviegoers.

“It’s probably the most pressure with which we’re trying to come up with a line [screenwriters Christopher] Marcus and [Stephen] McFeely on any of these films,” Joe Russo told Vanity Fair, “You don’t want to f–up Tony Stark’s last line.”

Added Anthony, “Part of the pressure came from Jon Favreau, who called us after reading the script and said to us, ‘Are you guys really going to kill Iron Man?

Joe recalled “trying to pacing on the corner of a stage on the phone with Favreau.”

“She’s like, ‘You can’t do this, it’s going to destroy people. You don’t want them to walk out of the theater into traffic,'” he said. “We did it anyway.”

Downey improvised the “super-smarts” alternate lines, which included “Oh, Snape” and an F-bomb in Thanos.

“We tried some alternate versions of it, and they were more in the snarky, Tony Stark vein,” Joe said. “He wasn’t playing it with enough pain of the power of [Infinity] Stones are coming out of his body.”

The brothers landed on a version “where they said nothing,” Anthony recalls of Stark’s final moments, before editor Jeff Ford suggested a callback to 2008. iron man,

“Our editor, Jeff Ford, one of the most amazing filmmakers we’ve ever worked with, previously edited iron man Movies. So he was on a journey with the original Jon Favreau-directed character. iron man,” said Anthony. Joe added, “He hits the play, and Thanos says, ‘I’m indispensable.’ Hit, kill, kill. And Jeff went, ‘I’m Iron Man.’ We were like, ‘Wait! What did you say now?!'”

He continued: “We called Downey and said, ‘You have to put the suit back.'”
