Avengers: Endgame is full of dozens of showstopping sequences, the kind of moments that make audiences clap, cheer and even shed tears. But there’s one moment in particular that is not only Robert Downey Jr.‘s finest moment in Avengers: Endgame, but one the most pivotal scenes in the entirety of his appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Funnily enough, it’s a moment that wasn’t written in the script, and it was a last minute addition thought up in the editing room before the production’s planned reshoots.
Find out all about how it came to be below, but beware of major spoilers. Read More »
Avengers: Endgame is a satisfying conclusion to the first era of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a number of reasons. Not only does it deliver a hefty dose of incredible comic book action and raw, genuine emotion, but it gives many of the characters satisfying, definitive character arcs. One of them becomes clear in the final scene, but this moment in particular has caused fans to ask some questions, and thankfully directors Anthony & Joe Russo have provided some answers.

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.

In the Avengers: Age of Ultron credits scene, an increasingly-impatient Thanos (Josh Brolin) opens a vault, reaches in, grabs a stone-less gauntlet, and says, “Fine. I’ll do it myself.” But in an interview with Avengers: Infinity War writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, they intimated that they weren’t going to deal with the ramifications of that scene.
“Not our movie,” McFeely said, referring to Age of Ultron. Markus then chimed in: “And we’ve all sat there and went, “What the hell is he talking about? Where was he when he did that?'”
Now Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo have commented about how the Age of Ultron credits scene aligns with the events of Infinity War. And just like with real estate, it’s all about location, location, location.

Despite the fact that most of The Avengers went head-to-head in Captain America: Civil War, not one of them died. Sure, War Machine (aka James Rhodes) walked away with a bit of a physical impairment, but that’s about as bad as it got for our heroes. However, directors Anthony & Joe Russo confirm that they once talked about killing off various characters in the sequel, including Captain America himself.

Now that Captain America: Civil War has been unleashed on audiences, fans who caught the movie last night are already looking ahead at what’s to come in Phase Three of the Marvel cinematic universe. New solo franchises will begin with Black Panther, Captain Marvel and the new Spider-Man. Others will continues with Ant-Man and the Wasp and Thor: Ragnarok, and there’s even a new hint of an Iron Man 4 at some point (though probably not in Phase Three). But the biggest part of the next phase in the MCU is the two-part sequel that is The Avengers: Infinity War.
Anthony & Joe Russo recently confirmed that the two films are different enough from one another that they’ll be renaming the movies so they’re not simply called The Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Part II. Now the directing duo has confirmed (accidentally) that Captain Marvel will be part of the sequels. Plus, a new interview has the brothers teasing the effect Infinity War will have on the MCU.

After the collateral damage caused by the previous efforts of the Avengers proves to be too much for the world’s governments, the United Nations comes together to introduce the Sokovia Accords, a resolution that will turn the superheroes into a task force supervised and directed by the UN itself. But not all our heroes are ready to blindly follow the commands of an organization that could just as easily have an agenda like S.H.I.E.L.D. (or Hydra) before it, and that’s what leads to the titular superhero conflict in Captain America: Civil War.
The result is a sharp, astounding, action-packed summer blockbuster that’s the kind of superhero movie you’ve been waiting to see your whole life. This is a comic book film where the action is just as harrowing as it is entertaining due to the care and respect that we’ve come to have for these superheroes after spending a total of 11 films (not counting Guardians of the Galaxy) with them in the Marvel cinematic universe. Directors Anthony & Joe Russo have pulled together a movie that brings as much hard-hitting drama to the table as much as it does astounding action. It’s the perfect model for what serial comic book movies can be.
