There are many iconic moments in the epic box office smash, Avengers: Endgame, but none hit a nerve with fans more than the line between father and daughter, “I love you 3000”. The line that Tony Stark and Morgan shared hit the heart strings of every person in the theaters. It has become synonymous with love and sacrifice and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, a theory came out that it may have another meaning, and Spider-Man: Far From Home seemingly confirms it.

The sequel to the successful Homecoming is getting rave reviews from critics as the release to the public is on a few days away. But, whilst fans can be excited for another great Spidey adventure, its the runtime that has some people having their mind blown. When you combine all the runtimes for every film in the MCU, and then add in the last film of the ‘Infinity Saga’, Spider-Man: Far From Home, you get a very interesting number. The combined runtimes equal 3,000 minutes. 3,000! As in “I love you 3000”! This is such a revelation!
Now, it has been said that the line was inspired by something Robert Downey Jr.’s child said to him, so it seems weird that Marvel would work so hard to get 23 films’ runtimes to exactly 3000. But, if you think about it, RDJ has been there since day one, so this line could have come up countless times throughout the decade of filmmaking.
Nothing official has been stated by Marvel, but this seems like such a one in a billion coincidence that all 23 films randomly add up to 3,000. This has to be by design, right? Whether it is by design, or the cosmic universe came together to give such devoted fans this wonderful, yet unexpected Easter egg, it is definitely an amazing event.
