RW535 - MCU Rewatch - Avengers: Endgame


In this episode of The Marvel Cinematic Universe Rewatch, Cory and Eoghan are having a blow out reunion party as they discuss Avengers: Endgame.


Our Favourite Trivia:

Stan Lee cameo: Driving a car past the Camp Lehigh Army base in 1970, it was based on his own actual look in the 1970s. This was the final cameo by Stan Lee in a Marvel film.

Shot back-to-back with Avengers: Infinity War (2018) over a period of 200 days.

Even though Captain Marvel (2019) was released one month before this film, Brie Larson shot her scenes for this movie first. The scene at Avenger's Headquarters was Brie Larson's first day on set as Carol Danvers. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, the co-directors of Captain Marvel, were present on-set during the filming of her scenes to ensure consistency of portrayal.

The opening Hawkeye scene was originally conceived as part of the finale of Avengers: Infinity War (2018). However, because Hawkeye had not been featured throughout that film, the Russo Brothers moved the scene to the beginning of this movie.

All of the Quantum Realm suits worn in "Endgame" are VFX creations because the film's production had to start before the costume design team could finalize what the suits would look like.

Director Joe Russo's daughters Ava Russo and Lia Mariella Russo portrayed, respectively, Hawkeye's daughter (Lila Barton) and one of Professor Hulk's fan wanting autographs and selfies.

Natalie Portman's appearance in the film was created with leftover footage from Thor: The Dark World (2013), and she also did voice-over work for a scene when she is talking in the distance. Although Portman didn't shoot any new scenes, she attended the film's premiere.

This was Chadwick Boseman's final live-action appearance as Black Panther, as he died from colon cancer on August 28, 2020. He finished recording his voice-over for the first season of the animated show What If...? (2021-) before his death.

The idea of showing the autographs for the original The Avengers (2012) actors in the end credits came from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991), which was also a finale for its cast.
