Heading into Avengers: Endgame, we knew that there would be some big, permanent deaths, but Iron Man's demise was still heartbreaking to witness. 

However, when the Armored Avenger snapped his fingers, he brought an end to both the Mad Titan and his army and ensured that the Earth would be safe for years to come. Unfortunately, the power of the Infinity Stones took their toll on Tony Stark, but before that "Snap!" he had one last witty response to Thanos after the villain declared, "I am inevitable."

That was, of course, "I am Iron Man."

It was already an iconic line, but is now completely unforgettable. In the video below, we get a behind the scenes look at that awesome moment, and this is definitely a must watch:

Pass the hankies, eh?

behind the scenes photos and videos from Avengers: Endgame!

Old Man Captain America

At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Chris Evans dons some impressive looking prosthetics in order to look like an old man. That likely required him to spend hours in a makeup chair, and the actor recently shared a behind-the-scenes look at the transformation he went through...at the halfway stage!

A Deleted Scarlet Witch Scene

It appears as if a number of small changes were made to the movie's final battle thanks to reshoots, and Elizabeth Olsen shared a video revealing what seems to be an alternate entrance for Scarlet Witch as she lands in the battlefield and takes out a number of soldiers.

In Avengers: Endgame, she first showed up in a confrontation with Thanos that was arguably far more impactful. 

Happy Birthday, Josh Brolin

Josh Brolin was lucky enough to celebrate his birthday on the set of Avengers: Endgame and the actor shared this video of the movie's cast wishing (well, singing) him many happy returns. As you can see, it was a rather star-studded celebrations as it was shot during the massive final battle. 

Jeremy Renner Becomes Ronin

Jeremy Renner's Avengers: Endgame haircut has had everyone talking for months and in this very cool time-lapse video, the actor shows his hair being chopped off in order to create the archer's new look (so, make sure to show this to your barber if you fancy getting the same thing). 

Captain America And Black Panther

In this fantastic behind-the-scenes shot shared by Chris Evans, Captain America stands tall alongside Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther, a character who will more than likely take his place as the leader of the New Avengers as we move into the Phase 4 films.

Marvel's Trinity Battles Thanos

This jaw-dropping BTS video shows Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man squaring off with Josh Brolin's Thanos, and it's going to be great seeing more from this fight once the Blu-ray lands.

Zoe Saldana Becomes Gamora

A post shared by Zoe Saldana (@zoesaldana) on

So, you probably thought that making Gamora look green was a massively complicated process, right? Well, it is (poor Zoe Saldana spends hours in the make-up chair) but who would have thought that she applied her own lipstick to finish off her transformation?

Archery Practice

In this awesome shot shared by the Russo Brothers, Joe gets his hands on Stormbreaker (who cool would it be to be able to buy a replica of that bad boy?) and chats with Chris Hemsworth during what was presumably one of the first days the actor was on set. 

What A Cast

Another video from the final battle, this one sees Chris Evans point out a number of moments on set that he enjoyed, many of which would make for hilarious GIFs if we had clearer shots of them!

Thor Dances

Well, this is awesome. In a video shared by Chris Hemsworth, the music takes hold of the God of Thunder and he starts dancing away as the rest of the movie's amazing cast enjoy some lunch. 

"Carol Danvers"

Avengers: Endgame was a particularly special experience for Brie Larson as it marked the first time she played Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is a simple behind the scenes shot but marks a touching thank you from the Oscar-winning actress.

Friends Reunited

One of Avengers: Endgame's most touching moments comes when Iron Man is reunited with Spider-Man on the battlefield. After years of putting off that hug, Tony Stark embraces Peter Parker, and the conversation they have in the video above is a little different to the one we saw on screen. 

Well, This Is Meme Worthy, Right?

Mark Ruffalo shared this hilarious shot from the set of the movie and, as you can see, it appears as if they're having great fun while sitting in the makeup chair getting ready to shoot their scenes.

Robert Downey Jr. Says Goodbye To The MCU

In this emotional video, Robert Downey Jr. shares a look at his final day on set and pokes fun at Chris Evans saying goodbye to the role of Captain America on social media (which created quite the uproar online as fans assumed that meant he would be killed off).

Archery Practice

Joe Russo's daughter Ava actually played Clint Barton's daughter in Avengers: Endgame and in this video shared by the filmmakers, we get to see just how good she got at archery while filming scenes which were originally going to be used in Avengers: Infinity War.


One of Avengers: Endgame's editors recently revealed that Robert Downey Jr.'s "I am Iron Man" moment came as a result of reshoots and the photos shared by the actor here are seemingly from the original sequence when he said nothing to Thanos.

Stan Lee's Final Cameo

Avengers: Endgame sadly marks Stan Lee's final cameo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Russo Brothers shared this touching behind the scenes photo earlier this month in which they're pictured alongside the legendary comic book creator while he's decked out in his 1970s costume.

Avengers: Love Island


Avengers: Love Island. #avengersendgame #nebula #loveisland

A post shared by Karen Gillan (@karengillanofficial) on

You probably won't find this funny unless you live in the UK and know what Love Island is, but in a behind-the-scenes video, Scottish actress Karen Gillan pulled off an excellent English accent to poke fun at the reality TV series while tying it into Avengers: Endgame!

The "Illegal" Video That Started It All

It was Chris Pratt who first shared an "illegal" video from the set of Avengers: Endgame, and we quickly learned that while the cast was told not to film anything, they all had their phones out at key points in production. It's just lucky that none of their devices were hacked over the past year or so. 

Women Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Robert Downey Jr. hosted a lunch for the women of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and, as you can see, it's an impressive, amazing group.

After that inspiring A-Force moment in Avengers: Endgame, there are a lot of fans out there who now hope to see the female team assemble one day.

How is it still totally badass even without any effects? It's just a dude with a plastic top on in front of a green screen and it's still amazing.

@BlackBeltJones - I think Cap knew he was wrong about that even before the end of the first movie.

Tony probably thought as he snapped "dust Thanos and anyone loyal to him" which would mean that the Other is also gone (he was still alive at this point probably at the Sanctuary), but that Gamora 2014 lived (since she was no longer loyal to Thanos). Interesting though that since the stones can also bring back anyone that was dusted, Thanos and his army could be resurrected the same way Hulk resurrected the half of the universe Thanos 2018 dusted.

I don't even think the Tony Snap was anywhere close to the cleanest way to end Endgame, but every time I think about I realize it was too great of a moment to pass up.

August 1985, I watched this movie in the theater and read this comic in the same month:

Did Thanos also snap away half the animals?
KingNomarch - 6/21/2019, 9:42 AM
@Kevwebsz - I do believe that Feige confirmed that he did

I wish they played up the idea that there was absolutely no other choice but for Tony to sacrifice himself. A moment of Tony looking around at a hopeless fight, seeing his friends on the brink of death, or some new scenario where Thanos was undoubtedly going to win would have made the stakes of the situation feel heavier. Instead, it seemed like all of the heroes were holding their own just fine, and there were still opportunities to take down Thanos. When there are other contingencies left on the table, that makes it seem like a wasted death to me.

I felt like his sacrifice in Avengers 1 held more weight. New York is about to be nuked. That is a completely hopeless situation, and there is literally no other way to stop it but to fly the missile into space. That was a sacrifice by Tony that felt 100% necessary.
