Fans were recently given a surprise when, on the Disney+ release of Avengers: Endgame, a cut scene with Katherine Langford was restored. In the scene, the 13 Reasons Why star plays Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) grown up daughter. The two meet in the Soul World after Stark makes the ultimate sacrifice to save the world. After Iron Man sees his daughter, he knows he made the right decision. The Russo brothers, who directed the blockbuster film, ultimately decided to cut the scene.
So what does the Australian actor think of finally getting to officially share the screen with Downey? ComicBook.com reports that the 23-year-old recently stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote her new film, Knives Out. In the above video, she reveals that she was slightly relieved because she had been terrified of spoiling anything from Endgame. She explained:
"It's a weird thing because... you're just perpetually terrified that you're going to spoil something. I mean, I'm such a huge fan of the Marvel films and the Russo brothers, so when Marvel reached out to me to play Iron Man's daughter, that was such an honor. And ultimately it didn't make it into the film, and creatively, like, that makes sense and that's totally fine. I was just content with having the memory in my head."
She also explained that fans are to thank for the released scene. She told Fallon, "I heard that's why it's out though. That's what I was told. It was literally out because people wanted to see it. Which is also really cool."
If the release of Langford’s scene proves anything it is that, if fans ask enough, they can get what they want from Marvel…except maybe bringing Stark back to life. That seems like a pretty done deal.
