Last week, my husband and I watched all of the Avengers movies. I find I still really love all of them, especially Infinity War and Endgame. They’re so satisfying, heartbreaking, and well-made that I keep going back to them. I was especially moved by the Twitter posts a week or so ago where someone shared excellent scenes with the opening night audience’s reactions. They gave me chills.
Sharing #Endgame for the first time last year, with each and every one of you, was the most thrilling and rewarding moment in our careers. THANK YOU. We eagerly await the day that we can all be back together in a theater, sharing these experiences once again…#AvengersAssemble pic.twitter.com/c9tu7NzEaH— Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) April 28, 2020
All of that to say that when I can see behind-the-scenes stuff about these movies, I’m all in. The Russo Brothers had #AvengersAssemble trending last night as they dropped trivia and videos from their experience making Infinity War and Endgame. They tweeted along while watching the flick with Robert Downey Jr.
They shared the last days on set for RDJ and Chris Evans.
Here is Brie Larson’s first day as Captain Marvel:
Their favorite, most difficult, and most emotional scenes to shoot.
We had to reshoot this scene between Hulk and the Ancient One. Hardest scene to get right in either movie because of the time travel exposition. Exposition is harder to shoot than behavior… #AvengersAssemble— Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) April 28, 2020
This was a very difficult scene for @karengillan. She had to lay on a platform 6ft in the air with her head tilted up for hours. A very cool and lovely human being. But let’s face it, all the Scots are cool…Here’s a model of the set. #AvengersAssemble pic.twitter.com/pvD2Npd3gX— Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) April 28, 2020
That long crane shot to find Cap and Peggy in the window… our favorite shot in the movie. #AvengersAssemble— Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) April 28, 2020
The Russos had family in several scenes of the films.
Joe’s 2 oldest kids (Sophia and Basil) are in this memorial scene… can you find ‘em? #AvengersAssemble— Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) April 27, 2020
We’ve got some more Russo family cameo’s here. That’s Joe’s daughter, Lia, Anth’s son, Julian, and our nephew, Augie. Lia loved the memes of her dabbing when this first came out… well, maybe love is a strong word… #AvengersAssemble pic.twitter.com/ggT5LBVE0M— Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) April 27, 2020
And just general shenanigans.
We have thirty glorious minutes of improv of @DonCheadle destroying Thor after his veins tee up…What do you guys think some of those zingers were? Also, check out Don in @SHOBlackMonday. He’s f**king hilarious. #AvengersAssemble— Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) April 28, 2020
We put Michael Douglas in a crazy wig so we could make him look like Michael Douglas from The Streets of San Francisco. But he just ended up looking like Michael Douglas in a crazy wig… #AvengersAssemble— Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) April 28, 2020
