If you are all cried out over Avengers Infinity War’s climax, now is the time to get some answers. Ahead of the digital release of the film, Avengers’ directors Joe and Anthony Russo have been divulging some interesting details about some of the most impactful scenes in the movie. Recently, Russo Brothers revealed a shocking detail about Spider-Man’s death in Avengers Infinity Wars, perhaps the most heart tugging scene of the entore film.

The scene has Spidey looking at his mentor Tony Stark as he goes, “Mr Stark, I don’t feel good.” Before he disappears into thin air, he says, “Sorry”. This emotional scene was the beginning of Thanos’ finger snap. The directors revealed in an audio commentary that the scene was initially not supposed to be drawn out, but it was Robert Downey Jr and Tom Holland’s improvised version that made it to the film.

According to a report in, Russo said, “At the end of the day, he (Robert Downey Jr) kept driving to put more and more emotion into it. And just went up to Tom (Holland) and said, ‘You don’t wanna go. You’re a child. And you’re using your strength as Spider-Man to fight this.’ And then that was the performance that came out.”

Spider sense is an alert system that allows Spider-Man to know when danger is approaching by delivering a tingling feeling at the base of his brain. It increases in severity depending on the threat-level, and has side effects and secondary functions, such as making Peter acutely aware of his surroundings at all times.

It must be noted that Spider-Man was the only one who was able to fight the effect of the Infinity gauntlet for even half a minute, while even the biggest heroes couldn’t do so. He was able to sense the sudden change and even apologise to his mentor.
