Avengers: Infinity War is widely considered one of Marvel Studios' best movies, but one eagle-eyed fan has spotted an apparent VFX mistake which might ruin how you view a pivotal scene. 

During the final act, Thanos succeeds in gathering all six Infinity Stones and snaps away half of all life in the universe. That led to a shocking sequence which saw several fan-favourite superheroes turn to dust, including Spider-Man. 

He vanished in Iron Man's arms, but YouTuber @MadvocateYT points out that, during the scene, Robert Downey Jr.'s hand naandd body suddenly become very rigid. That's likely because the real actor had to be removed from the scene so Peter Parker could turn to dust before a PNG version of Tony Stark was super-imposed over him.

"When getting this clip, I couldn't help but notice how stiff Tony gets after a certain point," they explain. "Including his hand, which funnily becomes a png that's obviously translated out of frame. I can't unsee it now, so neither can you."

Looking at how Tony stops moving and the way his hand awkwardly moves out of the frame, it's fair to say that, yes, we can't unsee this!

Here's what Tom Holland said about shooting the sequence in a 2021 interview:

"'I don’t want to go,' is the one I get all the time, from that scene in Avengers: Infinity War. It’s amazing when people think it’s some mind-blowing piece of improv, because I just say the same line five times in a row. People make out like it’s this beautifully eloquent sentence. But I look back on that scene so fondly. We had so much fun on those sets, but when we got into the emotion of that moment, we really dived into it."

"People tell me they imagine that scene must have been horrendous to shoot, but I look back on it with nothing but happiness. It was amazing. I loved it. I got to hug Robert Downey Jr., like, 60 times, and cry on his shoulder. What’s not to love."

The apparent Avengers: Infinity War blooper has gone viral and racked up close to 3 million views on X alone. Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments section.

Sure, but you can find that kind of easily overlooked mistake in any movie and it does nothing to hinder from the overall picture. Ho hum.

@imnotwearinghockeypants - This isn't even a mistake. It's just the results you get when you rush SFX. They don't have the time to rotobrush RDJ in every frame on every shot so they have to take shortcuts like this.

Also they don't use PNGs to do this. They can just freeze frame and mask the layer in the editor. No PNGs involved.

Kidding aside , if you are really paying attention to it then it does seem a bit wonky but come on “ruined” is a strong word man.

What's the problem? As the shoulder disintegrates, why wouldn't Stark lower his hand?

Wow. Truly groundbreaking news.

Sorry Eddie, after Coming to America 2, you're not fooling me again.

@tylerzero - never seen the original or the sequel but these legacy ones can be hit or miss so we’ll see.

Looks alright imo so far.

Someone has way too much time on their hands. It may be a blunder, but it doesn't take away from the emotional impact of the scene.

I thought this as well even while watching the movie but honestly, even if Strange tried, the gauntlet itself was like made from a star or something right? And since it has the stones, he just create a shield with the power stone or something before it happened.

What’s a more glaring plot hole is that Tony Statk could create an infinity gauntlet himself.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 5/23/2024, 1:08 PM
@HulkisHoly - Idkkk, at that point when they're all holding him, Thanos is powerless and is unable to use the gauntlet. So couldn't Strange sever his arm off by the bicep or shoulder?
HulkisHoly - 5/23/2024, 1:25 PM

That’s true. They kind of nerf thanos when using the gauntlet. I think that scene was good but could have been thought through a bit more clearly
HashTagSwagg - 5/23/2024, 1:46 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - I gotta a bullshit excuse, when Strange went through all those scenario's, he found that the only scenario where they "won" is the reality where time travel was invented so they had something to battle someone like Kang with or he saw that this reality would be safer if it didn't have any infinity stones so that a future threat that was greater than Thanos couldn't one day get their hands on them because Thanos destroyed them.
MyCoolYoung - 5/23/2024, 3:06 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - aren’t they all over him at that point? Mantis was sitting on his shoulders I believe
JustAWaffle - 5/23/2024, 12:31 PM
Well, if I skip reading this article like I did I’ll probably never notice it.
