Disney+ Released A Tony Stark Deleted Scene That Shows What Happens After His Snap, in ‘Endgame’
The time has finally come: Disney+ has launched. It has a massive library of television shows and movies, new and old, and Disney fans are dying to watch it all. Even though a good chunk of the content isn’t new, Disney added extras for some titles, like Avengers: Endgame.
There are loads of featurettes and interviews as well as deleted scenes. And one important cut moment, in particular, will reopen some old wounds and give fans a look at what Tony Stark saw after he snapped away Thanos and his army.
WARNING: Spoilers for Endgame deleted scenes ahead!
Disney+ has several extras for ‘Endgame,’ including 18 deleted scenes
Unlike other streaming sites, Disney+ has little tabs under different titles. If you click “Extras” under Endgame, all the deleted scenes and more are there. There’s audio commentary by Joe and Anthony Russo and writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely for the full three-hour film, along with featurettes on Thor, Black Widow, and casting.
The 18 deleted scenes have some with commentary, and others by themselves. There were six scenes released with the DVD, but it didn’t have several that are now available on Disney+, including a very touching one with Tony Stark and his daughter, Morgan.
A very touching scene shows what happens after Tony Stark’s snap
As Jeremy Conrad of MCU Cosmic tweeted once Disney+ was released, the cut scene includes Katherine Langford’s adult Morgan Stark. Much like after Thanos’ snap, viewers see Stark in this “Way station” in the Soul Stone, with water and an orange-pink sunset in the background.
Morgan is waiting for him, with her childhood tent and picnic set there as well. At first, Tony is shocked at who it is, but then it becomes very emotional for them, and she explains his sacrifice was worth it. “It worked for me, I got to live, grow up,” she tells him. Tony has a moment of regret, seeing his adult child, and it’s a bittersweet, yet heartbreaking scene. Of course, it ends with “I love you 3000.”
According to Collider, co-director Joe Russo told Josh Horowitz on the HappySadConfused podcast in May the reasoning behind shooting this scene. “The intention was that his future daughter — because these films are dealing with magic — his future daughter forgave him and sort of gave him peace to go.”
Why was Katherine Langford’s role taken out of ‘Endgame’?
Even though this scene might carry emotional weigh for fans, the Russo brothers cut it because they felt audiences haven’t connected to adult Morgan enough. “We showed it to a test audience, and it was really confusing for them,” Joe Russo said on the podcast. “What we realized about it was we didn’t feel an emotional association with the adult version of his daughter. So it wasn’t ringing to us and resonating with us on an emotional level.”
It might be a shame that Langford’s scene, and role, were never released in the final movie. But now fans can relieve Iron Man’s sacrifice differently and see what he experienced after his snap.
