Robert Downey Jr. offered insight into the deeper meaning of Iron Man and Captain America’s reconciliation scene in Avengers: Endgame.
Marvel Studios’ Captain America: Civil War concluded with Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers ending their friendship after the former learned the latter knew Bucky killed his parents. Consequently, the Avengers were broken up when Thanos arrived on Earth and completed his mission to erase half of the population in the universe using the Infinity Stones.
However, the heroes who survived Thanos’ decimation eventually formulated a plan to travel back in time to gather the stones and use them to undo the Mad Titan’s action, resulting in a scene in which Iron Man and Captain America decided to make amends. During an Avengers: Endgame watch party hosted by the Russo Brothers, Robert Downey Jr. dropped by during this sequence and shed some light on his interpretation of Iron Man and Captain America’s reconciliation:
“It was all about him forgiving me for not forgiving him so we can start getting ready to who knows, you know maybe throw in the towel for whatever we gotta do. It wasn’t just the idea of burying the hatchet, it was burying the hatchet and taking up the cross together. It was a complex scene.”
