The Surprising Avengers: Endgame Scene That Had Fans Fuming

"Avengers: Endgame" is regarded as one of the best films in the Infinity Saga, per its stellar 94% Rotten Tomatoes score, but that doesn't mean fans didn't take issue with parts of the story. Some people criticized the movie for being too long — with a runtime of 182 minutes — while others slammed the first and second act for having too much downtime. While those tend to be more general issues, some fans also had some very specific problems with the team-up flick.

The fandom seemed divided on Fat Thor, and some took issue with Professor Hulk. Screen Rant even called the character "the movie's greatest disappointment," citing that fans were crushed that the original Hulk had effectively disappeared. While these are great arguments, another issue with the film seemed to bother the fans much more. Surprisingly, the scene itself is pretty spectacular, but it created a bigger conversation that got many fans fuming.

Where was the respect for Natasha Romanoff?

It was long suspected that we would lose one of our favorite heroes in "Avengers: Endgame," but it was quite a shock when we witnessed the death of two of them. Depending on the fan, one death likely hit harder than the other, but the overwhelming amount of the MCU fandom felt a deeper blow from the death of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) rather than Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson). Both knowingly sacrificed themselves to save the universe, but the film did not give them the same amount of respect in the end.

On a popular Reddit thread where fans discussed movie scenes that made them angry, an overwhelming amount of users agreed that Tony's funeral was upsetting. The funeral scene itself is actually great, but it's the fact that Natasha didn't get a funeral or much recognition at all that had some fan's blood boiling. Both sacrifices were equally important, but Tony came out of the movie looking like the true hero. "Black Widow" director Cate Shortland noted in an interview with Empire that Johansson told her Natasha would never have wanted a funeral since she was a private person. After the events of "Avengers: Infinity War," no one was living a more private life than Tony, who had gone off-grid and shut out his friends, so not giving Natasha a funeral on that basis seems off.

Thankfully, "Black Widow" gave viewers some justice in its post-credits scene. We got to see Natasha's sister, Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), visiting her grave and paying her respect. It was nice to see that Natasha was given a gravesite that friends and adoptive family could visit. Still, we would have loved to see the remaining Avengers getting to pay their respects to Natasha as they did for Tony.
