Final Moments Of Iron Man In Avengers Endgame

Avengers Endgame was a movie cherished by every fan of Marvel. However, it was very painful for them to see their favourite character Tony Stark a.k.a Iron Man die in the climax of the movie. Last words of Iron Man were β€œI am Iron Man” and this line became iconic just as expected. Iron Man says these lines after he manages to take the infinity stones from Thanos and snaps his finger to defeat him. However, the power of the infinity stones was too much for him and he leaves everyone after rescuing the world. Iron Man remains silent during his final moments as everyone gives him a very emotional goodbye.
