Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo share another emotional behind-the-scenes photo, but this time around it showcased the original Avengers on the recreated set from their debut outing in 2012. The monumental success of Avengers: Endgame has prompted many cast members to share some of their favorite moments from filming. Chris Evans was the first to show off behind-the-scenes video footage, with the rest of the cast following suit in a slew of photos and videos that hit social media like a tidal wave. Amidst the array of goofs and goodbyes, Robert Downey Jr. recently took to social media to share a video of himself on set wrapping up his work on Avengers: Endgame as well, officially saying goodbye to the iconic genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, Iron Man.
Endgame has become an unbelievable box office success. It surpassed Avatar and became the second highest-grossing film of all time at the domestic box office. The film also shattered records by making a whopping $1.2 billion worldwide during its opening weekend, and was the fastest movie to hit that record in only five days. It was a feat worth celebrating on a multitude of levels, and the film's directors are still in a celebratory mood.
On Twitter, Joe and Anthony Russo shared a photo of the original Avengers on the recreated set of 2012's The Avengers, captioning it, "The OG's..." From left to right, the photo features Joe Russo, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, and Anthony Russo. It shows off each actor back in their original costumes after the climactic final moments of the first Avengers film. Check out the photo below:
With all of the reminiscing going on, it's easy to forget that Marvel fans still have another film they need to keep on their radar for this summer. Spider-Man: Far From Home will be closing out Phase 3 of the MCU, which many found to be an interesting and somewhat odd decision at first. In actuality, ending on everyone's favorite web-slinger is a great way to show fans what's coming down the pipeline and that there's indeed more where Endgame came from. It shows that the future of Marvel certainly still looks bright, despite many people still wondering how the MCU will be able to top their recent superhero epic. In the vein of remembrance as well, Spidey's upcoming second solo outing also took time to honor the legacy of Tony Stark in one of their new posters.
The seemingly endless flow of behind-the-scenes footage has been both an exciting and emotional journey for fans to follow along with. Endgame was an epic farewell to over a decade of films that impacted cinema in a major way. Whether you're a die-hard Marvel fan, or just a casual movie-goer, it's hard not to be impressed with the unbelievable amount of time and effort that went into making a massive cinematic spectacle. The entire MCU is one that moviegoers will always enjoy, and being able to see how much fun was had behind the camera on Avengers: Endgame makes it all the more better.
