On Sunday, the Russo brothers told MTV’s “Happy Sad Confused” podcast that they had released Langford to play the adult version of Tony Stark’s daughter Morgan. They had filmed a scene where Ironman, played by Robert Downey Jr., sees his adult daughter shortly before his death, and she forgives him for sacrificing his life to save the universe.
The scene was meant to reflect the moment of “Infinity War” that Thanos had with the children’s version of Gamora immediately after the villain broke his fingers while wearing the Infinity glove and wiped out half the population of the universe.
“There was an idea that Tony would enter the metaphysical intermediate station that Thanos enters if he snaps his fingers, and there would be a future version of his daughter station that way,” said Joe Russo in the Sunday podcast.
Russo said they had sewn the scene because it caused too much confusion.
“His future daughter was supposed to forgive him and give him peace to go. The idea seemed resonant, but it was just too many ideas in a complicated film,” Russo explained. “We showed it [the film with the scene] to a test audience and it was really confusing for them.”
Anthony Russo added: “We did not feel an emotional association with the adult version of his daughter. It did not ring us. It did not resonate us on an emotional level, so we abandoned it.”
The 5-year version of Morgan was played by Lexi Rabe.
Fans expect Langford to appear in the superhero movie after a report that was unveiled in October 2018 and that the actress will play a minor role, although details about her character have not been released at that time.
