Several unseen deleted scenes have been included in the digital version of the movie, featured in the new streaming service, one of which is a tear that features Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) talking to his daughter Morgan as an adult (played by Catherine Langford ).
Well, now he sees the light of day, thanks to Disney +.
The deleted scene, entitled "Tony at the Way Station," takes place in a sphere not unlike that in which Thanos found himself at the end of "Avengers: Endless War," the directors explained in a bonus comment. There, people have to "stand up to or reconcile something that is unresolved in their own soul," said Anthony Russo.
On stage, Tony, destined to die from a gunshot wound after suffering an endless glove, confesses to his daughter, "I may have made a bad decision."
"I'm afraid I made a mistake," he tells his daughter, who viewers only saw as a child in the movie, as seen in theaters.
But she eases it.
"I know. And I know you will have a hard time letting it go, but if someone has to do it for the rest of them [live] … I'm proud of you, "she says," I'm strong as a mother. And I'm happy. I'm happy that we had the time we did and that you were there for me ̵
With this Tony is visibly emotional but at peace.
"If you are happy, I am happy," he says.
"I love you," she adds.
"I love you 3000," he replies.
So, why would filmmakers cut such an emotionally powerful scene? Joe Rousseau said the fear was that the scene "shut the film to a close" and injured the momentum.
"And he does something similar in the next sequence when he gives his own praise," he said. The hope was not to "dilute the value" of any powerful moment.
In addition, Anthony Rousseau said, as viewers were only visually aware of Morgan's young version, "as we would look at it in [production] we began to feel that we did not have a very emotional connection …" because we have never seen her before. "
So the scene is cut.
The Disney + version of the movie also includes a deleted scene that shows an alternate version of Peter Parker's reunion with Tony Stark during the movie's big fight and a nearly 20-minute tribute to the emblematic character.
