THE most underrated scene in the entire movie. It was perfect. And do you know how often I see gif sets of it? This is the second one I’ve seen since the movie came out (It’s been over 5 months, now).
So let’s just pause for a moment from reblogging gifs of Tony’s sass, Loki’s sex appeal, or Bruce’s fluffiness and just appreciate this nameless, old, German guy and how, even though he knew he would probably die, he stood up to a tyrant to prove that the human race wouldn’t give up their freedom so easily.
Friendly reminder that it’s implied that he’s a Holocaust survivor.
When I was first watching this movie, it was at the drive-in theater and the projector overheated and blacked out at this scene. They didn’t rewind it so I missed this. Though later, I did get to see this scene, I was so upset I missed it the first time through. My friend, who had seen it before, assured me that it didn’t matter but I’d seen the beginning of the dialog and disagreed- majorly. This is probably one of- if not perhaps- /the best/ scene in this movie in my (probably) very unpopular opinion. This could very be, in fact, my favorite scene from any movie.
