“Mr. Stark? I don’t feel so good…”
We’ve seen the Incredible Hulk spring from the shadows and watched in awe as Ebony Maw traps and tortures Doctor Strange, but for the latest Avengers: Infinity War showreel, the spotlight has been shifted over to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, who says one final goodbye to Tony Stark as he succumbs to Thanos’ snap of doom.
It’s arguably the most emotional scene in all of Infinity War, and it’s a credit to Holland that amid all of the death and destruction, Spider-Man’s was the one that really struck a nerve. Hell, we’ve since learned that he improvised his final line (“Mr. Stark? I don’t feel so good”) to add another layer of authenticity and emotion to what is undoubtedly a heartrending farewell.
All of this (and more!) is recapped during the video below, in which you’ll be able to see Marvel’s VFX team at work. From the off, we watch a visibly wounded Spider-Man fall to the ground, before the young and helpless Peter Parker begins to vanish before our very eyes. We’re not crying, you’re crying!
Much like all other VFX breakdowns that have been released thus far, this Spidey-centric showreel will likely be included on the inevitable Avengers: Infinity War Blu-ray that’s expected to make its way onto store shelves some time in August.
That’ll no doubt help ease the wait until Avengers 4, though without a November release to look forward to, it’ll be quite some time after Ant-Man and the Wasp before we’re venturing out to our local theater to catch the next Marvel Studios pic. It’s Captain Marvel, in case you’re wondering, and Brie Larson’s former Air Force pilot is already being championed as the strongest MCU character yet.
