Captain America Scenes from Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame arrived in theaters with more hype and fanfare than almost any movie in history, and its safe to say that it lived up to the hype and then some. Finishing its theatrical run as the highest grossing movie of all time, the movie was filled to the brim with more action and excitement than almost any MCU movie that came before it.

With an event this monumental, there are years of planning and practice that have to go into it to make sure everything comes out perfectly in the final product. Even during filming, there is always work to be done to ensure the shots come out exactly the way the cast and crew picture in their brilliant minds. Some new behind the scenes video has just leaked revealing some of this tedious process, with Marvel Studios continuing giving unprecedented insight into the culmination event of the Infinity Saga.


In a new video on Instagram, Marvel Studios stunt coordinator Sam Hargrave has shared his second video in the last couple of days giving an inside look at his work as Captain America's stunt double for Avengers: Endgame. Hargrave can be seen in the video below with Captain America actor Chris Evans practicing some fight choreography for what appears to be the set of the Thanos vs. Cap battle at the decimated Avengers Facility.

Marvel Studios is notorious for keeping the production of their films more under wraps than almost any studio running today. This is also the second video that Hargrave himself has released after his recent look into his work on the massive Wakanda battle in Avengers: Infinity War.

In this new video, Hargrave and Evans appear to be practicing for the final battle against Thanos, likely their one-on-one confrontation after Cap lifts Mjolnir for the first time. Hargrave shows Evans some of the different throws planned out for the film, imagining hurling both Mjolnir and Cap's shield at his giant purple enemy. Avengers: Endgame helped give Chris Evans his final send-off as Captain America, and this fight did so much to cap his legacy the right way before his curtain call.

While it's still unknown exactly when this footage was shot, this video has likely been on Hargrave's phone for over two years, showing the discipline and resolve it takes to work with Marvel Studios. The MCU is synonymous with secrecy with so many fans doing anything they can think of to find out spoilers for the next upcoming films; the fact that this footage has been revealed now, even over a year later, makes it an exciting treat for Marvel fans everywhere.
