Even if you haven’t caught Avengers: Endgame, you might have seen a certain quote floating around social media. Now, the film’s writers have divulged the origin of the now-iconic line, “I love you 3,000.”
The film takes place in 2023, where ‘Tony Stark’ and ‘Pepper Potts’ have a five-year-old daughter. In one scene, the girl, ‘Morgan’, utters the line to her father to describe how much she loves him. He then repeats those words at the end of the movie under wholly different circumstances.
As it turns out, “I love you 3,000,” wasn’t constructed by screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Markus tells INSIDER that it came from Robert Downey Jr’s own children, and is something the family members say to each other.
“He brought it from real life onto the set,” Markus adds.
Noting the parallels between on-screen and real-world personalities, the line seems to be even more precious.
