Let’s dive deeper into the process that went into making the world’s biggest box office smash, Avengers: Endgame
1) Apparently, Tom Holland improvised the moment when Peter says, “I don’t wanna go” to Tony before turning into dust in Avengers: Infinity War. Holland said that whenever he wants to cry, he repeats a phrase over and over again, and that’s what inspired this.
2) The last time Groot said: “I am Groot” in Infinity War before turning into dust is actually him saying “Dad” as he looks at Rocket for the last time.
3) Kevin Feige first told Robert Downey Jr. that his character would probably die in December 2015, which was around the time they were finishing Captain America: Civil War.
4) Scarlett Johansson discovered that her character would die in Avengers: Endgame before production began on Infinity War. She said it didn’t feel real until she was standing on the Vormir set alongside Jeremy Renner.
5) The fact that Tony Stark would die in Avengers: Endgame was long hidden from the entire cast of the film. Most of the cast found out they were filming Tony’s funeral the day they arrived on the set and RDJ was nowhere to be seen.
6) The iconic fight between Killmonger and T’Challa in Black Panther was filmed with handheld equipment by cinematographer Rachel Morrison and his camera crew. They were in the water right beside Michael B. Jordan and Chadwick Boseman.
7) One of the most emotional moments for Michael B. Jordan to film in Black Panther was when his character reunites with his father in a dream.
8) In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Hayley Atwell wore very little makeup for the scene when Steve visits Peggy, who has Alzheimer’s, so the finished product was created digitally. An older actor performed the scene, mimicking Atwell’s movements, and then the two performances were combined.
9) In Spider-Man: Homecoming, when Peter is trapped under a building, Tom Holland was actually lying underneath real rubble and cement, so it was super heavy; he said it was the hardest scene to film in the entire movie.
10) There was originally a dialogue written for Tony in Avengers: Endgame during the scene where he dies, but Robert Downey was “adamant” that Tony didn’t need to talk here because his fight was done.
11) While filming Peggy’s funeral in Captain America: Civil War, Chris Evans jokingly sent Hayley Atwell a picture of the funeral, saying, “You look pretty hot when you’re old and dead.”
12) Tom Hiddleston reportedly knew about Loki’s death in Avengers: Infinity War before filming Thor: Ragnarok. He said that knowing the fact that he was gonna die soon helped inform his entire performance in Ragnarok.
13) The “I love you 3,000” was actually a phrase that Robert Downey’s son used when he was growing up. When he told the writers about it, they really liked it and it eventually made it into Avengers: Endgame.
