'Infinity War' Directors Explain Spider-Man's Poignant Scene

Avengers: Infinity War has been an undeniable success, having raked in millions and millions at the box office - even smashing records with its opening weekend.



The end of the film, however, was pretty brutal - with many favourite faces wiped out by Thanos in a massacre.


Sadly, that included our beloved web-slinger, Spider-Man.

As the high schooler pixelates into nothing, he says: "I don't feel so good Mr. Stark."

Heartbreakingly, he adds: "I don't want to go, please, I don't want to go Mr. Stark. I am sorry, Tony, I am sorry."

Yep, easily one of the saddest death scenes we've seen in ages.


But eagle-eyed fans apparently began to wonder how Spidey had a heads up on what was about to happen, as other other characters didn't realise they were disintegrating until it actually happened.

But directors Joe and Anthony Russo explained that Spider-Man knew because of his Spidey sense - something that was also given a nod at the beginning of the film when his arm hairs stood on end.


"That's correct," Joe Russo told Huffington Post, after being asked if Peter Parker's Spidey sense was behind the premature warning.

"He was aware of something."

In the same interview, the Russos explained a funny story behind a gag in the film, where Tony Stark has the number of Captain America on a flip phone if he's needed, with the Cap's number shown visibly on the screen.

"We actually had intended to create a fake voicemail from Steve Rogers," Joe Russo said.


"For the people that left the theater and called that number, they would get a voicemail from Steve Rogers."

Anthony Russo continued: "And that number was the actual number that we were going to use. We were sort of given that number.

"We had it all ready to go, but legal took that away from us."



Joe Russo also recently revealed that Spidey's moving death scene was completely improvised by Holland.

A Redditor said Russo did a Q&A at their school and confirmed that Tom came up with those chilling words as well as that Valkyrie survived the mass death scene.

It's no wonder, then, that Tom Holland has since also been voted the best Spider-Man ever by LADbible readers, taking 47 percent of the vote in an online poll.

Tobey Maguire didn't do badly in the poll, coming in at a respectable second place with 36 percent of the vote.

But Holland won out in the end- no doubt with his incredible recent performance in Avengers: Infinity War fresh in many people's minds...
