It may come as a surprise, but Tony Stark’s death at the end of “Avengers: Endgame” was patched together, impromptu.
Tom Holland explained that to prepare, the Russo Brothers and Kevin Feige brought together RDJ, Gwyneth Paltrow, Holland, and Don Cheadle. Sans script, the actors and directors hashed out the emotional scene.
Comedian Tim Heidecker Loves to Make up Lines
But not many, only about 0.1%, made it into “Ant-Man and the Wasp.”

Tobey Maguire Throws Out a Few Lines Depicting Peter Parker
Tobey Maguire played Spider-Man way back in 2002. In Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man,” Maguire portrayed a young Spidey. As Peter Parker, he had to learn how to web. Maguire was given some leeway as he tried out Parker’s new abilities.
He referred to old-fashioned comic superheroes like Superman and Captain Marvel with “Shazam!” and “Up and away web!”
Joaquin Phoenix Did an Extemporaneous Dance in “Joker”
Dancing with the devil in the public latrine lights, Phoenix’s Joker had been scripted to look into the bathroom mirror and ponder his crime (Arthur Fleck just killed his first victim) with a few lines.

Peter Quill Flips off His Captors
Chris Pratt is a voracious improviser. In this scene, Star-Lord is being held by the Nova Corps, along with his misfit crew.
When it’s his turn to stand at the criminal lineup, Pratt decided to give the Nova Corps the finger. Pretending his middle finger is part of an imaginary machine, he says he didn’t know how it worked.
