The fourth Avengers movie and the twenty-second Marvel Cinematic Universe release overall, Avengers Endgame, was released this year. And it's safe to say that the movie is a pretty big deal, providing the epic conclusion to the decade-old story that millions had been waiting for.
Because the movie is part of such a long and complex storyline, many fans have already pointed out callbacks to prior films.
But now a newly released scene has got all MCU fans right in the feels. The clip, released on Disney+, shows Tony Stark meeting his grown-up daughter (played by a surprisingly famous face). And, warning: it's not for the faint of heart. Sob.
The Avengers is one of the most popular film franchises of all time.

There have been 4 movies in the franchise.
via: ShutterstockThe first was 2012's The Avengers, which was followed by 2015's Age of Ultron and 2018's Infinity War.
This year, the fourth film in the franchise premiered.Titled Avengers: Endgame, it promised to be the final installment of the Avengers story, drawing the plot to its epic conclusion.
In the movie, the team of Avengers comes together for a final time.Their goal (or "endgame") is to undo the damage caused to the universe by Thanos during the Infinity War.
It's safe to say that fans were excited.Seeing all these excellent characters together again - and finally getting a conclusion to their storylines - meant that the film had a lot of hype surrounding it.
Since it was announced in 2014, fans have been getting excited.And with good reason. The movie reportedly had a budget of over $300 million - making it one of the priciest movies ever made.
And fans were not disappointed.The movie was released to massive critical and commercial acclaim and it's broken a ton of box office records. In its first weekend, it grossed $1.3 billion worldwide, making it the highest-grossing movie of the year.
Which means you've probably already seen it.But if you haven't, consider this fair warning - there are a lot of Avengers: Endgame spoilers coming up, so look away now if you don't want to know!
Fans were super into the movie.

Although not everyone was into it.Some viewers thought that the film pandered too much to the audience, relying on fan service to carry the plot and create buzz.
But we think it's awesome!But now a newly released scene from the movie has the whole internet feeling emotional.
And now, months after the movie's release...
via: DisneyWe've been blessed with a whole bunch more Endgame content, courtesy of new streaming service Disney+.
And there's one scene in particular that has the entire fanbase talking.Or should that be sobbing? As if we weren't emotional enough about the movie. We're only just over that ending, Marvel!
The fate of Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) is still a sore subject for many.His sacrifice of himself in order to save the universe by destroying Thanos still gets us teary-eyed today.
But this new scene?Boy, oh boy. All we have to say is prepare to reach for the tissues.
Because that final Stark scene?
via: Disney+It wasn't supposed to be the last time we saw the hero. In fact, the original cut of Endgame included a metaphysical trip.
And there, Stark meets a surprisingly famous face.
via: Getty ImagesThe scene takes place between Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr.) and Katherine Langford.
Langford is a relatively new star.But you probably best know her for her starring role in the first series of Netflix smash, 13 Reasons Why.
Following Stark's heroic sacrifice ...

And there's he has an emotional reunion.
via: MarvelBecause in the metaphysical world, Stark meets the grown-up version of the daughter he shared with Pepper Potts, named Morgan.
The Infinity Stones allow the two to meet up and have a chat.And during their reunion, Morgan tells Stark what every dad would want to here - that she manages to grow up safe and happy.
It's really emotional stuff.Particularly from Tony Stark, a character who's usually more sarcastic and deadpan.
Emotional stuff, right?
via: MarvelMorgan then tells her dad she loves him, to which he responds, "I love you, 3000." We're not crying, you're crying.
You may be wondering why this scene wasn't included in the final cut of the movie.
via: Getty ImagesDirectors Joe and Anthony Russo explained in the commentary that they felt the scene was "too similar" to the following eulogy scene.
They claimed it "ground the movie to a halt.""Because this adult version of Morgan, his daughter, was never in the film, as we would watch it in post we started to feel like we didn't have a lot of emotional connection, even though this is a wonderful actor, to the character because we'd never seen her before."
But for fans of the franchise ...
via: MarvelThe scene is absolutely a must-watch.
