Russo Brothers Say Jon Favreau Argued Against Killing Iron Man in ‘Avengers: Endgame’

Tony Stark of the Avengers with the Infinity Stones

The last line that Tony Stark says to Thanos is one that embodies him as a character and drives home his dedication to his superhero persona of Iron Man. Robert Downey Jr. delivered an absolutely incredible performance in Avengers: Endgame, and while I hate that Tony Stark died, I understand the choice. I still cry about it to this day, but I’m also, apparently, not the only one who wasn’t on board with the death of Iron Man. Jon Favreau, Happy Hogan himself and director of the original Iron Man movie, had concerns.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair while promoting their film The Gray Man, Joe and Anthony Russo broke down some of their iconic scenes and started with the scene in Avengers: Endgame when Thanos thinks that he’s won and says, “I am inevitable,” to which Tony Stark responds, “And I am Iron Man.”
