Anthony added, however, that this idea was raised by Feige during the early stages of planning a new project. Ultimatumand that there was never a version of the finished script where this happened.
At the Avengers: Endgame which ended up in theaters in 2019, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) give their lives in the fight against Thanos (Josh Brolin).
