Avengers: Endgame will be first screened in less than a week. This means that fans are more nervous than ever about potentially being spoiled about the film. If you’re among those who would rather know a possible spoiler going in, then read further because Chris Evans has a surprise for you!
Chris Evans Leading to a Possible Spoiler!
We all know Chris Evans! He is the one who plays Steve Rogers/Captain America. Recently he joked about what the Avengers’ “biggest enemy” is during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. While all other co-stars said Thanos, Evans joked that the real enemy was disturbing, especially “if you’ve ever run through an interdimensional portal.” You can check out the video below.
If you have been following basically every update about Endgame, this will probably raise some eyebrows. We all know that it has been long speculated that the film will be making a trip to the Quantum Realm. So maybe, Chris was talking about this?
Kevin Feige’s Interview
In an interview last year, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said:
“At the end of Ant-Man we followed Scott Lang into the Quantum Realm for the first time. We were beginning to peel back the onion that would later be completely peeled back in Doctor Strange as we go into the multiverse. So that was our little test into that. But now the Quantum Realm is a whole other territory that we can play with to tell our stories. This Quantum Realm is much larger than we ever imag ined, and there are all sorts of adventures to be had at that level, which perhaps we will explore in another film.”
We can’t tell if Evans was actually joking or serious with this reference. But it sounds like fans should be prepared for a wild – and lengthy – ride either way.
Joe Russo’s Interview
In a recent interview co-director Joe Russo revealed:
“We’re still looking at a similar time [approximately three hours]. This one’s been very specific in its run time. It really hasn’t changed since we executed the first cut of the film. Even though we’ve shot a lot of footage between now and then, we’ve swapped things out and the water keeps rising to the same level because the story’s so dense. We have so many characters that we’re working with again that require that kind of run time.”
Russo continued by saying:
“My brother [Anthony Russo] and I are really committed to emotional stakes, and emotion requires story real estate. When you have a sprawling plot with a lot of characters and emotional stakes, it requires time to breathe emotionally. On the scale, you’re just going to wind up at a certain run time. We’ve been really hard on the film. We don’t like excessive run times; it’s just very difficult wrapping up 10 years of storytelling.”
