Avengers: Endgame Fans Are All Emotional Over Cap And Iron Man’s Reunion


Ever since the two of them had a falling out in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, Tony Stark and Steve Rogers have kept to their own corners of the MCU. But as the latest Avengers: Endgame trailer makes clear, this month’s release will see the long-awaited reunion between the pair, and watching these two heroes share the screen again seems to have brought out the internet’s sentimental side.

While the preview that dropped this morning contains more than one shot of Captain America and Iron Man together, the part that really solidifies the pair’s renewed friendship is their conversation against a city backdrop. The brief exchange sees Tony ask Steve, “Do you trust me?” to which Cap responds, “I do.” The pair then shake hands, implying that the two of them are on good terms once more.

It’s a moment that’s apparently tugged at the heartstrings of quite a few fans, many of whom have taken to Twitter to express their delight and relief:

At the same time, not everyone was particularly pleased with this little exchange, perhaps finding the moment to be a little cheap:

To be honest, they may have point, though perhaps it all depends on how this scene fits into the movie as a whole. After their heated conflict in Civil War and the years of separation that followed, it would feel pretty anticlimactic if all their tense history was brushed aside in two lines and a handshake.

At the same time, seeing how the film may well have over 3 hours to tell its story, it’s quite possible that the movie has a lot more to say about the pair’s rocky relationship than we get from this one exchange. We’ll find out either way when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th.
