AVENGERS: ENDGAME Star Robert Downey Jr. Says Final 8 Minutes Are The Best In The MCU - Possible <font color=red>SPOILERS</font>

In a new interview, Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man) has shared his thoughts on why the final 8 minutes of Avengers: Endgame may be the MCU's best - however, his remarks are potentially spoilery.

Avengers: Endgame is being billed as the culmination of the first three Phases of storytelling in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that obviously means that the movie is a very big deal. 

How it all ends is probably the most closely guarded secret in the history of superhero cinema, but Robert Downey Jr. has revealed that he believes the closing minutes of the massive superhero ensemble are among the best ever put on screen during this shared world's storied history. 

"The last eight minutes of [Avengers: Endgame] are maybe the best eight minutes in the entire history of the whole run of them, in a way, because everyone’s involved," he teased. 

Downey's comments could be interpreted in a number of ways, but it would make sense for Avengers: Endgame to feature a brief time-jump to show us what comes next for these characters and that's a storytelling device anyone who has ever read a comic book event arc should be all too familiar with. It would also explain what he means when he says "everyone's involved."

Whatever the case may be, there's not long to go until we'll get to experience this for ourselves.

Endgame Starts 22 Days After Infinity War



There's been an awful lot of speculation about how much time will have passed since we last saw Earth's Mightiest Heroes at the end of Infinity War, and this footage finally cleared things up. 

While Tony Stark is recording that message for Pepper Potts, he mentions that they have been stranded in space for 22 days. He and Nebula no doubt left Titan almost immediately after the Mad Titan teleported himself to Wakanda, so that means they've been drifting through space for at least three weeks. 

Presumably, the same amount of time will have passed back on Earth for everyone else. 
 

Is Iron Man Dying?



Tony Stark was stabbed through the stomach by Thanos and, yes, there are seemingly going to be some pretty major consequences.

The hero tells Pepper that Nebula has helped him heal but he's contracted some sort of infection following the battle. While he tells his fiancee that he's recovering thanks to Nebula's assistance, it would certainly make sense for his condition to worsen over the course of this adventure, and for Tony to sacrifice himself because he's going to end up dying anyway. 

It's hard to say for sure, but it would be a bit of a cop out for Iron Man to simply recover from what initially seemed like a mortal wound.
 

Repairing The Benatar



A lot of fans were confused by the appearance of the Benatar in the first trailer for Avengers: Endgame, considering it was widely assumed that it got destroyed on Titan after Thanos pretty much tore the planet apart. However, it sounds like Tony and his new ally have been hard at work trying to repair it.

Iron Man reveals that while the fuel cells were damaged at one stage, they've fixed things up well enough to get two days worth of flight time before the oxygen runs out. Someone clearly comes to Rescue them, though, because it really doesn't sound like much more can be done before it's too late.
 

The Movie's Opening Scene



Those in attendance have said that they saw what appeared to be the movie's opening scene as "Dear Mr. Fantasy" plays over the Marvel Studios logo, before we catch up with Tony Stark and Nebula playing...paper football. 

It's a surprisingly light way to open this adventure but, then,  what would you expect them to do after being left stranded in space for weeks? Either way, Tony is clearly making good use of Star-Lord's Zune so he can enjoy some tunes.
 

The Rematch Happens Early



We've now seen some of the second clip shown to reporters, so won't bother going too much into that - but a little more was shown to journalists than what's popped up online.

Apparently, Earth's Mightiest Heroes do decide to head into outer space to launch a counter attack against Thanos and it seems as if we can expect this rematch to go down fairly early on in the proceedings, which is unexpected.
