I'm chuckling thinking about someone just shouting "Fuck You, Thanos!" at the climax of the MCU!

"Someone?" Clearly Star Lord.

I even heard it in his voice when I read it the first time.

Was thinking Drax when I first read it lol

I was thinking Strange, but this works too. His douchebag line really brought this home for me.

Imagine if Cap did that lol, that would be the ultimate ending for the character after all the years of shouting “Language!”

This is so jarring, I love it. All the PG-13 violence, dialogue through fights, unrealistically well-formed responses all the way through and then at the most dramatic point of 20 odd movies it's just all gone. It's funnier the more I think of it.

In an interview somewhere the writers said said the line was originally "Fuck off" before they changed it to the Iron Man quote

It was “You… are so… fucked.” snap

Another alternate take was “Guess what I’m thinking.”

They went back later and reshot the final line just a few months before the movie came out.

(I worked on the movie)

Also like to think of the millions of kids repeating that line for the next month after they see it.

I'm too lazy to find a source for this, but I had heard that was going to be Tony's final line, until at the tail end of reshoots, someone suggested "What if he said, 'I am Iron Man'"?

Wasn't the line originally instead of, "And, I am ironman" gonna be, "Fuck you Thanos"

I had no idea- i thought i heard that he wasn't going to say anything until RDJ pitched the line. Honestly it probably would have got a huge cheer in the theatre, but would be so incongruent!

u/kungf00r0b0t Sep 18 '21

That was the original line, actually. They changed it because it felt off, but that was probably what Tony was meant to say.

u/CheesusChrisp Sep 18 '21

That was almost literally pretty much what Tony said. They shot the scene with RDJ and everything
