Avengers: Endgame Directors Explain Why Iron Man Got a Funeral and Black Widow Didn’t

Avengers: Endgame administrators Anthony and Joe Russo say Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) won an onscreen funeral over Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) since the super-spy will subsequent headline her personal prequel film.

“Well, Natasha has another movie coming out. Tony does not have another movie coming out,” Joe Russo advised Entertainment Tonight at San Diego Comic-Con.

“When you’re dealing with storytelling real estate in a three-hour movie, there’s only so much of it, and someone else has another film coming, there’s always the opportunity to bring closure in that other movie. In this movie, we had to bring closure to Tony Stark.”

Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely in a similar fashion defended the verdict to not display a funeral for Natasha out of doors a temporary accumulating of the mourning Avengers, announcing it wouldn’t were “honest” to carry a funeral for a occupation secret agent.

“Tony gets a funeral. Natasha doesn’t,” Markus advised The New York Times.

“That’s partly because Tony’s this massive public figure and she’s been a cipher the whole time. It wasn’t necessarily honest to the character to give her a funeral. The biggest question about it is what Thor raises there on the dock. ‘We have the Infinity Stones. Why don’t we just bring her back?’”

Added McFeely, “That’s the everlasting exchange. You bring her back, you lose the stone.”

Widow in the end sacrificed herself on Vormir to say the Soul Stone, later used to opposite Thanos’ (Josh Brolin) erasure of part of all existence within the universe.

But the scene, which ends up with Widow successful out over longtime perfect pal Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), just about went the other way and had circle of relatives guy Clint Barton bounce to his loss of life to spare Natasha.

“Jen Underdahl, our visual effects producer, read an outline or draft where Hawkeye goes over. And she goes, ‘Don’t you take this away from her.’ I actually get emotional thinking about it,” McFeely advised the Times.


“And it was true, it was him taking the hit for her,” added Markus. “It was melodramatic to have him die and not get his family back. And it is only right and proper that she’s done.”

The Johansson-led Black Widow, due out May 1, 2020, will read about the founding Avenger a while after the occasions of 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. Avengers: Endgame releases on Digital HD July 30 and on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray August 13.
