Could Avengers: Endgame turn out to be the biggest cinematic event of 2019? There is a high probability that it will — after all, it is the culmination of an epic superhero story that fans have kept up with since 2008.
The film was (and still is) so popular that even non-MCU fans popped in to watch it. Have you read the articles on how the showrunners didn’t consider moviegoers who hadn’t watched the previous films?
If you think about it, there’s no love lost for the Russo brothers. You can’t only have watched the final movie in an entire franchise then conclude that it doesn’t tell you much about its prequels, right?
You must have heard that there was a spoilers ban in effect soon after Endgame dropped.
Having watched the movie on its opening weekend, one must admit that it took a lot for us not to share the epic scenes online, especially Iron Man’s death and Spider-Man’s reaction.
If you watched it early on too, I’m sure we must have been in the same boat! Maybe you even ignored the ban, unlike most of us.
Breaking a rule or two
If you did, worry not. The stars in the movie also broke a few rules during its filming. In a bid to avoid any leaks, Marvel put in place a no-camera rule on set.
However, they found the opportunity to take photos and shoot videos a little too tempting to resist!
Chris Hemsworth recently confirmed as much while on Jimmy Fallon, although admitting that each time anyone took out their phone, they’d be paranoid as to who could be watching them.
The Australian, who plays Thor in the MCU, went on to reveal that in spite of the studio’s strict policy, he did catch more than one of his costars taking photos every now and then.
A congregation of all the Avengers, he admits, was most often the reason the no-camera rule was broken, with the movie stars seeing it as too big a moment to not be captured on their personal devices.
After the spoiler ban…
Thankfully, the stars all waited for the spoiler ban to lift before sharing some of what they had shot on set via their social media pages.
While admitting that he did break the rules during filming, Chris Evans (Captain America) shared a video of when they shot one the movie’s major fight scenes, one similar to which Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) also shared.
Chris Pratt (Star-Lord) was also not left behind, sharing his video via Instagram. In his caption, he also admitted to ignoring Marvel’s strict policy against filming on phone, saying that he was determined to capture the collection of superstars. As he put it, who knew when they would ever share a room again?
How could Mark Ruffalo miss out on the fun? He didn’t! The actor who plays the Hulk shared a photo of himself with Chris Hemsworth, with the pair both in wigs. This was supposed to be a scene in the movie, but it, unfortunately, didn’t make the final cut.
The best of it all had to be RDJ’s (Iron Man) video on his character’s reunion with Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland. What an emotional scene that was!
