#there is nothing in this scene that isn’t amazing #from root in the background wondering how the hell shaw got out the cuffs #like she’s literally trying to fit her hand through the cuff seeing if she can figure it out for herself #to harold swearing he just seen shaw cuffed to the bench like five seconds ago and yet now she’s in his face #and then shaw casually eating like its nothing and ‘yea i’m really standing here..’ #like pls i’m dying #this scene is hilarious

Honestly Rhodey’s interaction with with Cap and Natasha in Infinity War had me confused and a bit pissed. Like ok, yeah, maybe he thinks they need Cap and the others, but to be all buddy buddy with them after they hurt Tony is so out ot character.

The only explanation I have is that Rhodey DOESN’T know about what happened in Siberia, about Tony’s parents and the lying, and being left there while injured. Sure, maybe he knows there’s something Tony’s not telling him, but for the most part, it was the accords and their disagreement over them.

If he knew, sure, he would work with Steve and the others, but not before punching him in the face and say “not cool, Cap.” And then continue on a plan.
