'Iron Man' fans convinced Tony Stark had a 'shitty dad' after part of original script is revealed online
The death of Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) in 'Avengers: Endgame' left Marvel fans in tears. It may have been well over a year since the behemoth flick released, but fans are still yet to come to terms with the character's death. It can be rightfully said that Downey's Tony Stark started it all for the MCU. In what comes as an interesting, yet a heartbreaking piece of news, details from the original 'Iron Man' script were posted on Twitter by @astcny, who is a huge Iron Man fan.
The script shows Tony as sketching and Bethany being impressed with 'Stark City'. He also adds he had constructed it at just 14 years of age. When Bethany reveals how impressed his father would be, Stark says he "never came up to see it" and it was, in fact, an apology for "living". Devastated fans took to Twitter to express their emotions.
"As an APOLOGY. He could’ve turned into a violent teenager consumed with hatred but no, my boy was trying to make everything better," a fan wrote. "what I’ve never understood is how Howard ended up being that that shit of a father when he was so likeable in Agent Carter," asked one of the fans. "chills went down my spine i-" tweeted another fan. "Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God!!!!!! It breaks my heart more than I can ever think it would. Tony needs to be protected and he deserves the world. Endgame doesn't exist for me. Now, please excuse me, as I go and cry in the corner," exclaimed another fan.
"I mean, I'm glad that Tony made up with his dad in Endgame, but....... Howard was a pretty shitty father. I mean, his "My greatest creation was you" speech in Iron Man 2 was beautiful, but I'm glad that Tony learned from Howard's mistakes when raising Morgan," opined a fan. "not like we needed it but confirmation Howard stark is TRASH," read a tweet. "Just teared up-," remarked a fan.
"HE JUST WANTED A FATHER," tweeted a heartbroken fan.
'Avengers: Endgame' has a heartening scene that sees Tony understand a bit more about his father, played by Jeff Slattery.
