Audiences were shocked when Avengers: Infinity War rolled its credits. In some cases, the entire theater was silent—as if in mourning. Half of all existence had just been wiped out, many fan-favorite heroes included, even fan-favorites like Spider-Man. Thanos won. It was a doozy, to say the least.
So, of course, when Avengers: Endgame came around, it was an event like none other. The experience that the film gave audiences is one that will be talked about for years to come. Even the Russo Brothers were in awe of the reaction, having recorded footage of it from an opening night screening, footage that just recently made it into one of Marvel's hype videos.
It's always fun to get new glimpses of what making that film was like, and just being reminded of that film in general. One such example was seeing Paul Rudd wield the Nano Gaunlet while waiting around in his Ant-Man suit.
Thankfully, today is one of those days on which fans can get new looks behind the scenes of Avengers: Endgame.
REMEMBERING AVENGERS: ENDGAME
On-set still photographer Chuck Zlotnick, shared new still images from behind the scenes of Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame. The images, posted on Zlotnick's Instagram, feature Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., and Chris Evans, can be seen below.
Included in these images is the badass moment involving Chris Hemsworth's Thor as he holds both Mjolnir and Stormbreaker, holding his ground against Thanos.
Another image is one quite familiar to fans, as it was a scene that caused quite a stir when on-set photos leaked while they were initially filming the movie.
The picture shows a professional version of this scene from the Battle of New York in 2012, showing off Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark and Chris Evans' Steve Rogers.
ENDGAME WON'T BE FORGOTTEN
Avengers: Endgame is one of those films from which fans will be getting new glimpses behind the curtains for years to come. Expect cool little BTS shots to still be hitting the web decades from now. That's how big that film was, and it goes to show just how massive of a success the Marvel Cinematic Universe is.
As big as that film was, the MCU is far from over. Having just started Phase 4, Marvel has already launched three massive Disney+ shows: WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki. All three of those shows are set to play key roles in setting up the board for movies to come, such as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and Captain America 4.
The endlessly expansive and interconnected storytelling that comprises the MCU looks to just be starting. One day, the world will have another Avengers film. On top of that, another Avengers: Endgame level event is all but guaranteed down the line. Maybe the Russo Brothers can come back for Secret Wars?
