Avengers: Endgame star Robert Downey Jr. has revealed the hilarious alternate final words of Iron Man.
Robert Downey Jr. kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe with 2008’s Iron Man and bid farewell to it in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. The birth and death of Iron Man were signified by Robert Downey Jr.’s iconic line readings of “I am Iron Man.” It turns out, however, that the Avengers: Endgame star has a variety of alternate lines for the character to say in the film before he snapped away Thanos and perished.
During a recent appearance on the Hypocondriactor Podcast, Robert Downey Jr. was asked to recite the final words Iron Man said to Thanos and the world. In doing so, the Avengers star hilariously recounted several alternate final words the character could have said.
“Correct answer is ‘I am Iron Man,’ but I had so many alt lines that I wanted to put forward. Oh god, let me think. They were all super smart-ass lines like I was trying to, y’know, dumb stuff like, ‘You are so f-cked’ or whatever. You know what, I’ll have to go back to my notes. I get the Infinity Stones and then have the power to snap and have whatever I wanna have happen – Oh, I was gonna say ‘Oh, snap.’”
Robert Downey Jr. is probably joking about some of these lines but it’s great to see the Avengers star hasn’t lost his dry, sarcastic sense of humor that made him a household name. It’s ultimately fitting that two of the most important moments in the MCU – Tony Stark revealing himself as a superhero and later sacrificing his life to save the world – were bookend with “I Am Iron Man.”
Here is the synopsis for 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.”
Avengers: Endgame is available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and streaming on Disney Plus through IMAX Enhanced presentation.
