There was a surprise waiting for Marvel fans when Joe and Anthony Russo joined the #AvengersAssemble viewing party for Avengers: Endgame. The twist was the brother provided some insight into the shoot of the movie too!
If the Marvel fans are the most dedicated fan-base in the world then there certainly are reasons for that. While the world fights through a Pandemic and millions of families suffer, people are finding ways to keep the hope alive that all is not lost. We will conquer from this situation.
- Russo Brother’s Avengers: Endgame
- Filming is long even for Captain America
- Captain America worthy of the unthinkable
The lockdown has brought people of all kinds together. And the Marvel fans were quick to assemble. Using the hashtag #AvengersAssemble, fans of the franchise decided to host a viewing party worldwide to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Avengers: Endgame! And Russo brothers deciding to join the party was the icing on the cake. Not only they joined the viewing party with the Marvel fans, Joe and Anthony Russo indulged the fans in some never-heard behind the scene footage of the Marvel Universe too.
Here is everything we learned from when the Avengers of the world Assembled.
Captain Marvel: Endgame
Russo Brothers, director of the record-breaking movie Avengers: Endgame had a lot of insight to offer the eager fans into the behind-scenes world of Marvel.
Brie Larson as Captain Marvel was of course first introduced to us in the solo movie Captain Marvel. But Brie Larson donned the costume for Captain Marvel first in Avengers: Endgame as the shoot of the movie took place before her solo adventure! And of course as wide and far the superheroes of the MCU may look to you, Russo brothers, Joe and Anthony also revealed one interesting location detail.
Turns out the location of the lake house in which fans meet Tony Stark in Endgame while he is living there with Pepper and Morgan is only a few hundred yards away from where the battle of Wakanda took place.
Filming is Long even for Captain America
Well, the process of shooting the simplest scenes in a movie sometimes takes 3-4 hours to film and that is exactly how long the scene with Captain America in the elevator with HYDRA pretending to be SHIELD took.
And in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the elevator scene with the fighting sequence included took four days to shoot. No wonder there is a gap of two years between the Marvel Movies.
No Stopping Practice Even For Thor
It doesn’t matter if you’re the God of Thunder trying to stop the universe from ending. Russo Brothers revealed that when Rocket and Thor are set to the task of retrieving Reality Stone from Jane Foster, there were some people who were responsible for their holdup.
The setup for Asgard was took place in UK in Durham Cathedral and the cast and crew along with the director had to wait for the choir practice to finish before they could start their shooting. And they have video evidence for the same.
Captain America Worthy of the Unthinkable
One of the most jaw-dropping moments of Avengers: Endgame was Captain America wielding Thor’s hammer Mjolnir for the first time. Fans wanted to know if Chris Evans knew of this fantastic development and how did he react to it.
Russo Brothers informed the fans that not only did Chris Evans knew this information early on, Kevin Paige Marvel Studios President knew years before the movie even went into production. And if that is not enough tidbits about Avengers: Endgame perhaps Thor getting roasted will light up your Pandemic hit faces!
Thor Gets Roasted
Russo brothers revealed that when Thor tries to make up for his mistake of not-killing Thanos, he urges that he be the one to snap his fingers to bring everyone back. Rhodey sarcastically (but also seriously) suggest that Thor has too much cheese coursing through his veins to do that.
Well, if you think that is funny, then there is somewhere deep in the Marvel Studios 30 minutes of unedited footage of Don Cheadle roasting Thor about what is coursing through his veins. (Give us it!!!!)
We see Peter Quill in Avengers: Endgame nodding and singing along to “Come and Get Your Love” by Redbone on Morag which is also the opening scene for Guardians of The Galaxy.
Fans wanted to inquire if this footage was picked up from there or shot again especially for Avengers: Endgame. Russo Brothers were quick to confirm that the footage shown of the Star-Lord dancing on Morag was completely “New”.
Here’s hoping this brand-new information has brought some comfort and excitement knowing there are a never-ending Marvel movies to look forward to. Each better than before.
