Top 10 Most Teary-Eyed Avengers: Endgame Moments
The Top Ten
Thanos - sacrificed his daughter for a better world for himself.
Tony - sacrificed himself for a better world for his daughter.
If there was ever a death the Russo's could have pulled out of the pocket that would tear an audience's heart in two pieces, it was this one. Tony Stark's involvement in the MCU as we know it is absolutely amazing to it existing in the first place, the original superhero to step out into the limelight and pave the way for our cinematic favorites over 10 long years ago.
It was a predictable death unfortunately, because I knew all too well that he might die. However the way the movie presented his sacrifice impacted every fan who loved Robert Downey Jr's character. I can't express how much I loved Iron Man since he was my first hero when I watched the first film in 2008. Iron Man is the functioning heart of the avengers.
Now I know why Peter said "everywhere I go, I see his face" in Spiderman Far From Home. It also confirmed the Avengers movies are over.
Black Widow was an important, supporting member of the team, and although she might have deserved better throughout the series, her heart-breaking death still hits me hard. All she ever wanted was to make the red in her ledger right, and this was how she did it, in his last chance.
This was a really sad part! She didn't even get to fight the epic battle. And the look on Hawkeye's face made Black WIdow's death sadder! :'( I hope the upcoming Black Widow movie is a sequel of the MCU so she comes back!
I got more teary-eyed in this than Iron Man's death scene to be honest. I honestly have no idea why.
I’m pretty shocked that she didn’t get a funeral like Tony Stark. Her death scene was so sad!
Captain America is given the final responsibility of returning the infinity stones to their original locations to re-seal the timeline. And like any man lost in time, he can't resist taking a decades-long detour back to the 40s along the way.
We find this out through the way of Old Man Cap wearing a wedding band, deciding to keep his secrets to himself when asked by Sam about his adventure. The flashback we're treated to of a beatiful Peggy as she and Steve dance to the radio was all we've ever wanted, all we've ever needed, and all they had to show - just knowing that Cap got to live the life he finally wanted and deserved. was treat enough. It's so, so wholesome, ensuring that no piece of cinema can ever live up to one simple slow dance ever again in movie history
It finally happened!
Should be number 2 this was the saddest thing about the first Captain America movie having him wake up in the future not being able to have that dance 15 movies later we finally get that closure a truly beautiful moment
This scene wasn't a surprise, but that took nothing away from the deft way it played out, with Clint teaching his daughter how to shoot whilst having a barbecue on a campground. Turning away for just a moment, all of his loved ones turn to dust without him being aware of it, seeing only particles in the wind as he runs and shouts for them, and the devastation of the snap is remembered in this sadly scene.
We see again the god of mischief in 2012, where he dedicated himself to keeping the Avengers occupied for the first time. And in the Asgard of 2013. Loki (Tom Hiddleston) was one of the first victims of Thanos in Infinity War and his death could not have been remedied by undoing the snap of fingers. But the fact that Thor's brother manages to escape in Endgame, in the plot of 2012 and with the Tesseract, gives us some hope. And some explanations on how it would be possible that Disney Plus series with Hiddleston's protagonist if his character was supposedly dead, so brilliant.
I wish he was alive. Or is he? 😏
It's sensitive and touching, and renders the his appearance into something far more poignant than a walking piece of just humour. Thor has fallen from grace as the impossibly hero, hammer-wielding god that we've all known him as into something entirely new and unknown, the laughs thrown in his direction a meta commentary on how society at large looks at people who are struggling, especially men.
The conversation with Frigga is the chance we get to see under the surface, given an explicit full stop when Mjolnir is conjured once more to prove his worthiness as a good man. This is the moment Thor can rise from the ashes again and believe in himself, no matter what he looks like or where he's been. It's a moment of empowerment that was sorely needed in the movie.
Whilst Bucky has been his friend and his enemy, throughout the MCU, it's Falcon that gets the honour of the Captain's leadership, handed his shield at the close and something of Captain America's identity along with it. He's still Falcon, there's no doubt about that, but the torch passing of this moment is one designed to tug at our chests in an undeniable way.
It's the end of an era and the start of something new all in one simple exchange. That Cap waited out his lifetime to be able to be with Sam and Bucky at this moment is just another layer to the sad, beautiful creation that is Avengers: Endgame.
Focussing more on what happens after the rat, watching Ant Man get sucked out of the quantum realm and back into normal-sized man land is a stressful start, showing us what it would really be like to be plunged back into a world that never stops ageing. Scott looks for his daughter on a memorial before finding his own name, literally proving himself to be a dead man walking, before taking the time to check his old house to see if he can find Cassie there.
As Captain Marvel takes a knockout from Thanos, who's attempting to kill life as we know it, Tony Stark is left as the closest Avenger able to take on the mad titan right now. Looking past the battle and towards Strange, desperately hoping for some reassurance, he slowly lifts his hand and closes his fingers, with only one left pointing to the sky.
Strange is telling Stark that this is the one timeline. This is the one future that humanity can succeed, this is what they'd been fighting for the entire two movies, and that his actions will play out right if he takes the plunge right then and there. Adrenaline has nothing on this scene.
Watching Spiderman - 'I don't feel so good Mr. Stark' - Man get dusted in Infinity War was undoubtedly the most feary-eyed moment of the MCU to this day, so to watch it be undone was always going to slap smiles on faces. Seeing Tony spot the human spider as he excitedly reels off his adventures post-dust is ridiculously lovely, with Peter unaware of just how much Tony cared for him until he's enveloped into a bear hug in the middle of the battlefield.
This got a huge cheer from the theater.
I was bawling my eyes out by the time Captain America said “Avengers, ASSEMBLE! ”
I think the death of Thanos was quite a shocker and it had a certain amount of Sadness with it because of the fact that his death was pointless, he was killed and the thirst for revenge at least for Thor was quenched, yet it felt just empty and devoid of any meaning.
Hence the death of the original Thanos has got to be a really sad moment since it had no implications and was completely pointless.
I'm gonna miss you dad 😔
I felt bad for him! The look on his face was really sad.
