In Avengers: Endgame, superheroes of Marvel Cinematic Universe were travelling through uncharted territories to obtain the Infinity Stones and fix the aftermath of Thanos' snap. Rocket Raccoon joined Thor to the world of Asgard, Tony Stark aka Iron Man and Steve Rogers aka Captain America travelled back into time and bumped into Peggy Carter and Howard Stark. Hawkeye and Black Widow travelled to Vormir and obtained the Soul Stone whereas The Incredible Hulk aka Bruce Banner crossed paths with the Ancient One to obtain the Time Stone. Although we loved these carefully planned crossovers, it has been revealed that the Russo Brothers had some other plans for Tony. 

In The Empire Film Podcast, Avengers: Endgame co-writer Stephen McFeely revealed that Tony was supposed to be sent to Asgard. He revealed that the plan was to send the Avenger Thor's home planet where he would cross paths with Heimdall. That's not all. It was also planned that Iron Man would fight the Asgardian during his visit to the planet. 

“Technically in Thor: The Dark World, the Tesseract is in the vault as the Aether is also there. So that sent Tony to Asgard, and he had an invisible stealth suit, and he fought Heimdall, who could of course see him," McFeely said, Comicbook.com reported. However, there was a change in plans. "I think Joe [Russo] went in and said, 'Why don't we go in to Avengers? It's the biggest movie, it's the most fun, let's go,'" he added. 

As much as we would have enjoyed Tony and Heimdall showdown, we loved Russo Brothers' decision to make Tony meet his father. Those few moments together left fans emotional, giving us and Tony a perfect end. What was your favourite Tony Stark moment from Avengers: Endgame? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
