"He's my friend." "So was I."
Also known as the most upsetting line in the Civil War trailer. We should have known we weren't ready you guys. For this Friday's Feels, let's reexamine the tumultuous relationship Tony and Steve had in the movies so far. Because we're masochists of course.
They got off to a rough start.
They clashed almost immediately in the first Avengers movie. "Big man in a suit of armor, take that away and what are you?" "Everything special about you came out of a bottle." They both managed to see each other's insecurities and they were ruthless about them.
They made up... sort of.
Tony showed everyone how selfless he really is, and Steve proved himself not just as a soldier but as a leader, not just a man out of time. They came together and made it through shawarma...
And that's probably as long as their truce lasted.
Because Tony screwed up big time in Age of Ultron.
Well, in Natasha's words:
Tony was trying to create a safer world with Ultron. Instead he did basically the opposite. Whoops?
Steve is not great at concealing rage.
Did they part on good terms?
Sort of. Tony seems to be done Avenging (which was how Iron Man 3 ended, so that's not really a surprise) and Steve sounds committed to the path he's on. Not enemies... but is this a friendship that could survive whatever Marvel wants to throw at it next?
Oh god. We're all going to be ruined by this movie, aren't we?
