Avengers Endgame is the highest-grossing film at the box office. It is on track to set even more new records. The three-plus hours’ movie has quite the content. Fans still nitpicked a few different aspects — especially when it comes to War Machine and his new Iron Patriot armour.
Where did the suit come from?
In the film’s final act, Thanos destroys the Avengers compound. Rhodey must abandon his suit to escape the crushing debris collapsing on top of him. He is rescued by Ant-Man, though he appears in a brand new Iron Patriot armour. However, the film doesn’t show how he got it.
Well, one fan caught a quick look at the armour when Ant-Man wakes up in the debris. His suit briefly appears in the background.
The confusion could have been avoided
Showing Rhodey actually getting into the suit and flying out would not have contributed anything important to the film. Yet, it would have avoided the confusion. But maybe with a rewatch, it might be easier to notice.
The filmmakers behind Endgame had to face many such issues like this, even with the lengthy runtime. Some scenes were cut, some were retooled, and other plotlines were changed entirely.
Idea for the reveal of the Heroes
The writers explained that they had an entirely different reveal of the heroes’ return from the Snap planned. But even they admitted it wasn’t very good.
“We had one where they all come back to the exact same [place], to the compound, like [snap], boom, there they are,” said one writer.
“It was an Avengers pizza party. You gotta try things out,” added the other. “Because there is no hard, fast, real world factuality about [the snap], we have to make up hard, fast rules in order for this to make sense. One of which is that everybody came back to the point where they disappeared. So then they had to get back to our battlefield, which gave us a window of time where things still had to happen.”
