The digital version of the movie featured in the new streaming service includes some previously unseen deleted scenes. One is a stuttering Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) talking to his daughter Morgan as showing an adult (played by Katherine Langford).
Well, thanks to Disney +, it sees the light of day.
The deleted scene titled "Tony at the Way Station" plays in an area similar to the one in which Thanos was at the end of "Avengers: Infinity War," the directors said in a bonus commentary. There, people have to "deal with or reconcile something that is unsolved in yourself and in your soul," said Anthony Russo.
confesses to his daughter: "I could have made a bad decision."
"I'm afraid I made a mistake," he tells his daughter, who only saw the audience in the movie as a kid, as seen in theaters.
But she calms him down.
"I know, and I know it's going to be difficult for you to let go, but if anyone had to do that, we could all [live] … I'm proud of you," she says. "I'm strong, like mom, and I'm happy, I'm happy we had the time we had and that you were there for me ̵
Tony is visibly emotional, but at peace.
"When you're happy, I'm happy," he says.
"I love you," she adds.
"I love you 3000", he answers.
Why should the filmmakers cut such an emotional scene? Joe Russo said the fear was that the scene would "bring the movie to a standstill" and affect its dynamics.
"And he does something similar in the next sequence, if he keeps his own eulogy," he said. The hope was not to dilute the value of a powerful moment.
Also, Anthony Russo said because the viewers were only visually familiar with the young version of Morgan, "when we saw them in the mail [production] we felt we had not much emotional connection … to the character because we've never seen them before. "
That's how the scene was cut.
The Disney + version of the film also features a deleted scene featuring an alternate version of Peter Parker's reunion with Tony Stark during the film's big fight and an almost 20-minute tribute to the iconic figure.
