Uh-oh. The Russo Brothers are back trolling us again. It now seems that a certain emotional scene with Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark and Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers isn’t in the film, or at the very least, the one we saw in the latest promo for Avengers: Endgame was fake.
If you’ve seen the latest Avengers: Endgame teaser, then you know that there’s a moment when Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark and Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers share a huge moment where the first asks the latter if he trusts him, before getting an emotionally charged affirmative response. Well, Joe Russo recently revealed that this scene, in particular, isn’t even in the final cut of the film.
After FOX 5 reporter Kevin McCarthy brought up how the scene impacted him, Joe Russo shut him down by revealing this huge bombshell. The question starts at the 5-minute mark of the video. Check it out:
You can see that Anthony Russo glares at his brother Joe possibly, spoiling the scene or if it will even be in the film. But later Joe Russo starts playing mind tricks with McCarthy by asking him if he would trust him if he now said otherwise. All-in-all, it’s just good old Russo Brothers trolling at its best. It’s not a secret at many fans are waiting for that emotional Robert Downey Jr/Chris Evans moment somewhere in the film. Maybe the reunion between Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans moment will happen in another, much more meaningful way.
Last time we saw Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark and Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers was during Avengers: Infinity War. Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man was sorely defeated by Thanos on his home planet, Titan, and was left with Nebula to rot after most of the Guardians of The Galaxy, Spider-Man and Doctor Strange vanished in front of them due to Thanos acquiring all six Infinity Stones. Chris Evans’ Captain America was battling out Thanos’ lieutenants in Wakanda when suddenly the Mad Titan appeared to defeat them and the rest of the Avengers, as well as wiping half out half of the universe.
According to the first Avengers: Endgame trailer, Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers is on Earth dealing with the fact that most of his teammates are gone and Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark is drifting around in the universe waiting for a miracle to save him. After watching other trailers it now seems that Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark has come back to Earth ready to team up with Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers. But knowing how the Russo Brothers like to troll us, we won’t know the truth until we see the film later this month.
What do you think will happen to Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark and Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers? Do you think we’ll see Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans meet their end in the film? Sound off in the comment section down below!

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he’s one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes’ arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he’d love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I’ve always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he’s done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio’s best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c’mon, the guy’s look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn’t deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He’s charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he’s young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
