10 Facts about Avengers: Endgame that will absolutely blow your mind

Avengers: Endgame (2019) became the biggest pre-sale title ever on Fandango and Atom Tickets sites, causing them to crash minutes after the sales were announced. It accomplished this feat in only 6 hours. Some theaters across the world had so many sold-out showtimes on the opening weekend that Cinemark, Regal, and AMC theaters chose to add new overnight screenings so that they would be working around the clock to accommodate extra shows. Here’s a few interesting facts for you. ( Courtesy : Internet)

 

Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr. was the only cast member who was entrusted with the entire film’s script of Avengers: Endgame. He once told Anthony Russo and Joe Russo about how one of his children said “I love you 3000” to him. The directors liked the phrase so much that they decided to include it in Avengers: Endgame. Robert Downey Jr. officially surpassed Hugh Jackman’s record for most appearances in the film as the same superhero, with ten with Avengers: Infinity War. He set this record in only 11 years, whereas Jackman did it in 17.

Captain America

When asked how ‘Captain’ was worthy to lift Mjolnir in Avengers: Endgame, according to Anthony Russo, he’s always been worthy, and during that moment in Age of Ultron, he stopped himself from lifting the hammer fully out of deference to Thor: “In our heads he was able to wield it, and he didn’t know that until that moment Ultron when he tried to pick it up. But Cap’s sense of character and his sense of humility, sort of out of deference to Thor’s ego, you know Cap in that moment realizing he can move the hammer decides not to.”

Paul Rudd

In a brief scene where the members of the Avengers are flashed on a holographic screen in Avengers: Endgame, the headshot used for Scott Lang was pulled straight from Paul Rudd’s IMDB profile photo.

Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman’s appearance in the Avengers: Endgame 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.

Captain Marvel

Even though Captain Marvel (2019) was released one month before Avengers: Endgame, Brie Larson shot her scenes for Avengers: Endgame first. Carol’s new look after the time skip in Avengers: Endgame is inspired by the comics on two counts. Her short hair has been carried over from her modern design, as has the red sash she wears as a belt. Her new red costume with black shoulder-pads is lifted directly from Captain Mar-Vell’s, Carol’s predecessor. Additionally, it’s subtle, but Carol showing concern for Rhodey and telling him to be safe is a reference to their recent romantic relationship in the comics.

Clint Barton

The line “Clint, son of Edith” in Avengers: Endgame is a Marvel Comics reference. In the comics, Clint Barton and his brother Barney were the sons of Harold and Edith Barton. The boys loved their mother but hated their father, who was a physically and verbally abusive alcoholic. Harold eventually killed both himself and Edith in a DUI car accident, after which Clint and Barney were sent to an orphanage.

Doctor Strange

The name “Endgame” for the movie Avengers: Endgame was foreshadowed in Avengers: Infinity War by Doctor Strange: “We’re in the endgame now.”

Thor

In Avengers: Endgame, Thor was supposed to confront his 2012 self, but the idea was ultimately scrapped as revealed by directors Joe and Anthony Russo. While it was Captain America (Chris Evans) who had a direct entanglement with himself from the events of The Avengers’ Battle of New York from 2012 and Nebula (Karen Gillan) with her evil counterpart from 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, apparently, Thor was supposed to have his own similar moment in Endgame. Speaking with MTV’s podcast, the Russos said that the initial plan was to have a Thor vs. Thor confrontation in Asgard. However, they felt like “it overly complicated [the plot],” adding that they also liked the “Cap vs Cap better” so they gave up the bit. Instead, they gave Thor a different experience when he went back in time – another chance to talk to his mom and properly say goodbye to her commenting: “I think there, we also deferred to the story line between Thor and his mother. It was so resonant, that we really wanted to run… That was really more a part of Thor’s journey and repair than confronting his former self. So that’s really what happened there, why we went with that.”

Harley Keener

At Tony Stark’s funeral in Avengers: Endgame, a teenage boy is seen standing behind Scarlet Witch and Bucky. This is Harley Keener (Ty Simpkins), the boy from Iron Man 3 (2013) who let Tony use his shed when he needed to repair his Iron Man suit.

Black Widow

In the scene where Black Widow coordinates the remaining Avengers in Avengers: Endgame, on her chair is a pair of ballerina shoes. This is a nod to Natasha’s past in the Red Room where she was trained (Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)).
