The IMAX enhanced version of Avengers: Endgame revealed a key detail at the funeral for Tony Stark.
In honor of Disney Plus Day, the streaming service released the official IMAX Enhanced versions of certain Marvel Studios films. Recent 2021 entries including Black Widow and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings saw their full aspect ratio restored for streaming, while Avengers: Endgame was also granted the same luxury.
IMAX Enhanced versions of films give fans the literal full picture of what was originally shot during production, given that the widescreen versions of such films cut off elements of the frame. That was certainly the case in Avengers: Endgame during Tony Stark’s funeral. In the scene in which we hear the fallen Avenger’s recorded testimony for his daughter Morgan, we see that key characters in his life including Pepper Potts, James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Happy Hogan are all present to console young Morgan Stark. However, two other individuals were in the room as well, whose heads were previously obscured in the widescreen version.
As it turns out, Tony’s fellow Avengers Steve Rogers and Thor were also present in the room, paying their respects to their late friend as he relays his final message recorded before the Time Heist. The two were also prominently featured towards the end of the film’s epic climax when the camera focuses on their heartbroken faces as they witness Tony breathe his final breaths after successfully defeating Thanos.
Here is the synopsis for Avengers: Endgame:
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Josh Brolin.
