Robert Downey Jr. has been removed from Black Widow – fortunately!

Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) deserves a worthy ending. In the cinema, her alter ego Black Widow is being given a farewell that Iron Man and Co. can only dream of. In fact, the Marvel spectacle was not always intended as a swan song for the elite agent: Rumor has it that Robert Downey Jr. should also make one very last appearance as Iron Man. Now it turns out that there is indeed a Script version with Tony Stark appearance for Black Widow gave.

Robert Downey Jr. was to appear as Iron Man in Black Widow

This has now been revealed by Black Widow co-author Eric Pearson (via Comic book ):

I remember that one version of the script was supposed to feature the ending of The First Avenger: Civil War. So Tony Stark should be us [an den Black Widow-Zeitpunkt] remember, along the lines of, ‘Hey, we’re at the very end of Civil War.’

Pearson refers to a scene in which Tony Stark and Natasha Romanoff quarrel again at the end of the Avengers Civil War: Romanoff accuses Stark of a bloated ego, he angrily reveals to her that they would now be pursued – after all, she helped the renegade part of the heroes to escape.

Some Iron Man fans may now wistfully mourn the missed chance of Iron Man’s return after his death in Avengers 4: Endgame. But it’s for different reasons right that the character was not revived for Black Widow.

Robert Downey Jrs. MCU return would have disappointed Iron Man fans

Because as Pearson makes it clear, the Black Widow opening sequence would not have been newly shot scenes: “It was old stuff”he explains. “Robert Downey Jr. wouldn’t be [für neue Szenen] been there.” Leftover scraps from Civil War times would have been recycled.

MCU fans are right to mourn Iron Man’s death. As one of the two Avengers dads, he accompanied her for years and developed from a technology toy to a world saver. But his brilliantly staged, tear-damp heroic death two years later torpedoed with a half-baked dialogue scene, just wouldn’t have been right. Marvel should rather decorate his grave with flowers than make him a zombie.

Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow was supposed to do without Iron Man

Black Widow doesn’t need an Avengers jump start

In addition, Natasha Romanoff’s Schwanengesang is deliberately a solo film that shows no other Avengers apart from the completely screwed Black Widow credits scene. Finally did not only sacrificed Iron Man for the universe, but also Romanoff.

The Marvel blockbuster is a monument to her – and that should apply entirely to her, shedding light on her strengths and weaknesses, her devotion and anger, her past and present from front to back. The jump start via Iron Man cable subliminally downgrades them to the status of junior partner, which she has long since left behind.

Not a great Marvel hour: Dealing with Natasha Romanoff in Iron Man 2

None of the other Avengers – including Captain America, Thor or the Hulk – should run the risk of stealing the show from her. But there is also one Argument that speaks specifically against Iron Man.

Robert Downey Jrs. Black Widow return would have ruined the MCU message

Because in the course of her first appearance in Iron Man 2, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow was basically treated like a piece of meat: as a kind of hypersexualized object that was long known as a Template for Tony Stark’s macho sayings (“I want one!”) Has to serve.

Black Widow to set a cinema monument again after the actual end of the Infinity saga should also be understood as a statement in this context: Marvel wants to show that the Times of chauvinistic condescension and derogatory jokes belong to the past. The studio would have undermined this claim if it had allowed Tony Stark, of all people, with his machismo story to make the only Avengers appearance in Black Widow.

Marvel hasn’t done enough on that front, but they can show their ambition in dealing with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow successor. And even a character like Tony Stark that is difficult in parts has developed over the years and does not have to remain defined by Iron Man 2. The mourning for him is more than justified. Perhaps it should be left to rest now to make room for new heroes.
