Russo Brothers Explain Why Tony Stark’s Daughter Scene Was Removed From Avengers: Endgame

Fans collectively agree that Avengers: Endgame managed to hit in all the right places. Naturally, the movie went on to snag the title of the highest-grossing film in the box office history. The conclusive film of the decade-long Infinity Saga considered the audience reception with every decision made regarding the film. Ultimately, the film managed to deliver a heart-breaking, gut-wrenching and emotional experience for the fans. It definitely struck a chord within fans who grew up with the franchise. However, with all the planning that went into the film, several scenes had to be cut, as important as they were. One such scene was Tony Stark meeting his daughter in the afterlife.

In a recent interview, director Joe Russo revealed the formation of the scene and discussed the reason for its removal from Endgame.

“Part of the process is we go through a long period of exploration when we make these films. That starts at the very beginning when Chris Markus and Stephen McFeely where we sit around and just talk about the story for months. We discuss what the possibilities are, where we can go. That sort of sense of exploration continues all the way through our shooting of the film and post-production. So there was a while where the idea was that when you use the Soul Stone there is sort of this moment that you have this kind of reckoning with something that may be left unresolved in your soul.”

Supposedly, the scene was shot with the intention to emulate Thanos’ interaction with his daughter Gamora in the Soul World. His arrival in the Soul World was after he used the stones, which was also the case for Tony Stark. However, since fans didn’t have a connection with Morgan as compared to Morgan, the creative time ultimately cut the scene.
