The new IMAX version of Avengers Endgame on Disney + leads fans to realize that both Captain America (Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) were present during Iron Man’s (Robert Downey Jr.) final speech. It’s been almost three years since Joe and Anthony Russo wrapped up the Infinity Saga with their 2019 Marvel Studios film. To further drive home the idea that it was the end of an era, the film also served as a swan song for some original Avengers, including the MCU’s inaugural hero.
Following the devastating complement of Thanos (Josh Brolin) Avengers: infinity war, the surviving Avengers went their separate ways and spent the next five years differently. For Tony Stark, that meant time for his personal life. He married Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and together they had a daughter named Morgan (Lexi Rabe). When the idea of the time heist came up, and he was recruited to join the mission, Tony was skeptical of the plan, fearing that trying to undo the snap would cost him his current life. But, unable to sit on the sidelines and let his teammates figure things out, he finally dressed again to join them. In the end, it became his final mission, as he sacrificed his life to ensure the future of a Thanos-free universe.
In the immediate aftermath of Iron Man’s death, the main MCU characters gathered at his lakeside cabin for his private funeral service. Apparently, he recorded a farewell speech in case he didn’t get out of the time heist. The video of the hologram was played for his family and closest friends. Now, many fans are noticing that both Steve Rogers and Thor were also in the house during this time, thanks to Endgamenew IMAX version on Disney +.

The hologram message was Tony’s way of leaving a goodbye message in case things didn’t turn out well during his time travel shenanigans in Avengers Endgame. But, it was also doubled as a meta-commentary on how big the MCU has grown over the years since it debuted as Iron Man in 2008. The original scene focused on Pepper and Morgan, which made sense since they they were the ones who would be most impacted by the death of Patriarch Stark. Apart from them, Rhodey (Don Cheadle) and Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) were also present, since they are his two oldest friends. In the background were Captain America and Thor, and while they were always there, the non-IMAX version of Avengers Endgame it didn’t show them completely; instead, they are only shown from the neck down, so they can be easily skipped.
Iron Man may already be dead in the MCU, at least in the sacred timeline, but his legacy lives on. In fact, its impact goes far beyond the events of Avengers Endgame and Infinity Saga with a couple of Disney + shows that will explore stories related to him. That includes series like Iron heart and Armor wars.
