Avengers Endgame

When it comes to Marvel movie trailers, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that we shouldn’t believe what we see. Spider-Man was hidden from an airport fight shot in the Captain America: Civil War trailer, the Thor: Ragnarok trailers faked out audiences by including a key shot of Thor with both of his eyes, and an Avengers: Infinity War trailer threw us off by including a shot of Hulk running with Team Wakanda that never even appeared in the film.

Now directors Anthony and Joe Russo have confirmed that they’re doing the same thing with the Avengers Endgame trailers in order to preserve the audiences’ experience of being surprised in the theater. Place your bets below about which shots have been digitally altered.

Avengers Endgame runtime

Avengers: Endgame could beat Infinity War‘s record as the longest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie yet. It’s not uncommon for rough cuts of movies to exceed three hours, but with the film’s April release date closing in, it seems likely that the fourth Avengers movie will be a three-hour epic. Directors the Russo brothers revealed that the Avengers Endgame runtime has hovered around the three-hour mark, and will likely stay that way. That is, if test audiences continue to respond well to it.

avengers 4 reshoots

Reshoots are par for the course for any tentpole movie, and Avengers 4 is no exception. But as the Marvel film commences reshoots this fall, Avengers 4 star Mark Ruffalo revealed a surprising new approach for this comic book sequel.

Usually by the time reshoots roll around, the film is mostly complete. It’s a rough sketch of a movie, and the additional photography done during reshoots are necessary to smooth it out or fill in the gaps, but you’ve got a beginning, middle, and end. Any other alternative would spell trouble for the production, but that’s not the case here.
