Now that the movie's spoiler ban has been lifted, Captain America actor Chris Evans reveals an Avengers: Endgame behind-the-scenes video he shot during filming. The wrap-up of Marvel Studios' Infinity Saga, Endgame has exceeded all expectations by taking just two weekends to become the second highest-grossing movie of all-time worldwide. The epic superhero adventure now has its sights set on passing James Cameron's Avatar to become the box office champion.
Given the hugeness of Endgame and the need to protect fans who wished to go into the movie with all its secrets intact, directors Joe and Anthony Russo went out of their way to urge fans not to give away any spoilers, implementing an official spoiler ban via social media. But now that Endgame has been out for almost two weeks, the spoiler ban has officially been lifted, meaning fans may now freely discuss the movie without incurring the wrath of Marvel Studios. Of course, the main reason for lifting the ban was so Marvel could release the newest Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, which by necessity contains Endgame spoilers.
The end of the spoiler ban also means the stars of Endgame can feel free to reveal things that went on behind-the-scenes on the movie, and indeed Chris Evans has already taken advantage of his newfound freedom to post video on Twitter showing him and his fellow castmates assembled for a big action scene from the movie. Dave Bautista, Chris Hemsworth, Pom Klementieff, Chris Pratt and Chadwick Boseman all make appearances in the clip, which can be seen below:

Of course, some of Evans' castmates already jumped the gun by revealing footage from what looks like the same shoot before the spoiler ban was lifted. Evidently, Evans takes things like spoiler bans much more seriously than some of his costars like Pratt. In the past, a few Avengers actors have found themselves unable to keep any secrets at all, leading to some rather hilarious security measures being taken in the name of protecting the franchise.
By and large, it seems the official Avengers: Endgame spoiler ban did indeed protect fans from finding out anything about the movie before seeing it. As the film has now grossed well over $2 billion worldwide in just two weeks, it's a fair bet that anyone who really wanted to see the movie has seen it, and will not be bothered by spoilers at this point. Then again, there are some folks who get angry at spoilers even well after a movie has been released, but with so much Endgame talk now going on any such spoiler-hating stragglers will just have to resign themselves to the fact that they're no longer going to be protected.
