Spoilers Alert: To avoid spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, you may want to stop reading the article below if you have not seen the movie.
The movie, Avengers: Endgame, has finally been released, climaxing the 11-year-long build-up of a 22-film haul of the Avengers series. Although the movie is far from perfection, fans were not disappointed; the epic and emotional feelings it gave fans were exceptional, more than what we have ever seen before in the MCU.
We owe this to the great work of the writers of the movie – Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus. The story did not only push the characters more than ever but also offers everyone the chance to drop their best ever acting performance since the inception of the Marvel Universe.
Speaking with The New York Times recently, the two writers revealed that they had a couple of revisions and ideas for the movie before eventually settling for the current version used. It is even more interesting to know that some parts of the story was either edited in writing or removed totally during the shoot.
The story-line entails the retrieval of the Infinity Stones from the past. Hence, the Avengers team, as well as the fans, were taken down memory lane as the team travelled back to New York (2012), Asgard (2013), Vormir and Morag (2014), and Camp Lehigh (1970). All of these involved the use of locations and times from The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Infinity War, along with the first two Captain America movies. The writers chose these best periods to retrieve the Infinity stones, to briefly remind audiences of the journey that both the heroes and MCU have gone through to get to this climax and it is truly commendable that they took this route.
Although this was the final setting, it was not without a couple of back and forth on which ideas could have been better than these – like sending Tony Stark to Asgard! They spoke about Stark dawning a stealth Ironman suit and taking on Heimdall who could see through his attempts to conceal himself. The writers further revealed a couple of other proposed twists that unfortunately didn’t eventually make it to the movie shoot.
Let’s also mention the action-packed battle scenes, which had Thanos and the Avengers team engaging in several moments of fist-pumping pleasure. While this scene is obviously the longest in the movie, McFeely and Markus said it could have been a lot longer, but they had to make some cuts to improve the flow.
The excitement and the buzz about the Avengers: Endgame is still very much around. Not only has the film been able to drive fans wild, it has also made giant strides in commercially. So, we ask you, what is your favorite scene from one of the biggest entries in Box Office history: Avengers: Endgame?
