Now that we are done with the big MCU finale, we are ready for the final movie of Phase 3. Both Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home will end this final Phase of the Infinity Saga. Spider-Man 2 will give us the first look at how things are going to be post-Endgame. 5 years have passed so things should have changed dramatically for some, while for others, not so much.
Whatever complex and tangled storyline the MCU tells us, we’ve really come to love it. Every MCU fan could gladly say that they love it 3000. Now talking about that, we recently found out that the “I love you 3000” line was a contribution made by our very favorite Robert Downey Jr. himself. His kids used to say it to him. Now coincidently, there’s an even bigger meaning of 3000 that has been spotted in the MCU. Look at the following image:
All the 23 Marvel Cinematic Universe movies have a total run time of 3000. This does mean that Spider-Man: Far From Home is 2 Hours and 9 minutes long, which is pretty sufficient for us. Since it hasn’t been confirmed officially just yet, so it is upon us whether to believe it or not. But the whole 3000 minutes of connection is just amazing and adds a deeper meaning to the Morgan Maguna Stark line.
Well, along with the 3000 line, there was one big addition that was made to Iron Man’s story arc at the very last moment. The iconic moment where Tony Stark makes a comeback to Thanos being inevitable was a last minute addition. Here’s what Joe Russo revealed about this:
“Tony used to not say anything in that moment. And we were in the editing room going, ‘He has to say something. This a character who has lived and died by quips.’ And we just couldn’t, we tried a million different last lines. Thanos was saying ‘I am inevitable.’ And our editor Jeff Ford, who’s been with us all four movies and is an amazing storyteller, said ‘Why don’t we just go full circle with it and say I am Iron Man.’ And we’re like, ‘Get the cameras! We have to shoot this tomorrow.”
So it’s funny how common things inspire these films so much. “I am Iron Man” was such a perfect end for Tony Stark, and it was so obvious. That is why as soon as it clicked the directors after Jeff Ford brought it up, they took no time to shoot the moment. When it’s right, it’s right!

Here’s the new synopsis of Avengers: Endgame:
“Thanos snapped his fingers in Avengers: Infinity War, and half the life in the universe instantly dissolved. Now a ragged group of surviving warriors, including Captain America, Black Widow, Iron Man, Thor, and the Hulk works to counteract the Mad Titan’s genocidal action.
Since our heroes couldn’t stop Thanos the first time, what makes them think they can win in a rematch? The answer may be in overwhelming power, thanks to Captain Marvel, or in the tiniest spaces between atoms accessible to Ant-Man. Avengers: Endgame will rewrite the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. When it’s all over, nothing will be the same.”
