2Spider-Man’s death scene in Avengers: Infinity War originally wasn’t as long. Marvel Studios did what many thought they wouldn’t when it came to the end of Infinity War and the deaths it would have. Fans expected the older guard to say goodbye, but they’re actually the last ones standing. This has led to some sidestepping from Marvel, as many of the “dead” heroes are going to be returning for future films. Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is the prime example, as he turned to dust at the end of Infinity War but has Spider-Man: Far From Home hitting theaters two months after Avengers 4.
However these heroes are brought back, it doesn’t completely take away from the scenes in Infinity War. While some may know better, the characters don’t and resulted in some pretty emotional farewells. Spider-Man’s hit home the most for many, and it originally was much quicker.
Avengers: Infinity War is now available to buy digitally and with it comes an audio commentary with directors Joe and Anthony Russo and writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. During Spider-Man’s death scene, Joe Russo and McFeely discussed the elongated goodbye he received as compared to the quick sendoffs others got.
Joe Russo: “If I remember correctly, right, it was, ‘I don’t feel so good.’ Tony looked at him, he said, ‘I’m sorry,’ and disappeared.”
