Directors Joe and Anthony Russo, and writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely took part in an Avengers: Endgame watch party organised by ComicBook.com on Monday. The creative team behind the biggest film of all time revealed interesting anecdotes, shared unseen footage, and much more.
From sharing behind-the-scenes videos of Brie Larson’s first day on set (as Captain Marvel), to a video of Chris Evans goofing off in old-age makeup, the Avengers team kept fans hooked during the watch party.
Here are five key takeaways from the event:
Who did Hulk see in the Soul World?
In the film, both Tony Stark and Bruce Banner use the Soul Stone. While it was revealed in a deleted scene that Tony saw an older version of his daughter, Christopher Markus revealed that it wasn’t the Hulk who was transported into the Soul World, but Bruce Banner. “We did write one, a conversation between Hulk and Banner, but it didn’t make it to camera. Ruffalo showed up but Hulk wouldn’t come out of his trailer,” Markus joked.
You’ll never see Black Widow’s cooking skills
The writers revealed that among the many deleted scenes, there was one in which Black Widow made a peanut butter sandwich. “There is extensive footage of Scarlett Johansson making that peanut butter sandwich. Can’t believe it was cut. #Realeasethepeanutbuttersandwichcut,” Markus wrote on Twitter.
Not Sam, Bucky could have become Captain America
At the end of Endgame, an old Steve Rogers returns from a life well lived to pass on the mantle of Captain America. Both Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier) and Sam Wilson (Falcon) are with him, implying that either of them could be chosen. Steve hands his shield to Sam, and Bucky nods in approval. The writers revealed that making Bucky Captain America was considered, but not for long. “Considered, but quickly dropped. Captain America is about the idealism, what we could be if we were better. Sam is that. Bucky is something else entirely.”
Here’s when Captain America became ‘worthy’
One of the biggest crowd-pleasing moments of the film was when Captain America lifts Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, which can only be brandished by those who are ‘worthy’. Asked why he could only move the hammer slightly in Avengers: Age of Ultron and not even attempt to lift it in Captain America: Civil War, the writers said, “I’d say he’s not completely worthy yet. He still has the secret of Tony’s parents’ death to resolve.”
