Avengers: Endgame is almost upon us and with every day that goes by, the speculation reaches a new high. Fans are wondering how Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man will undo The Mad Titan Thanos’s snap to bring back the dusted avengers. But no matter what happens, it is sure to be the experience of a lifetime.
The Avengers: Endgame trailers have deliberately been kept vague and they have mostly used footage from the previous films. It’s clear that Marvel Studios wants to keep the plot point a secret till the movie releases. Turns out it’s not just the fans who are being kept behind a veil of secrecy. The actors too are. Except one that is.
Directors Anthony and Joe Russo have revealed that the only cast member who was allowed to read the whole script of Avengers: Endgame was Robert Downey Jr. Talking to Rotten Tomatoes, Joe said; “RDJ was probably the only one to read the entire script”.
He also went on to add that Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange) got a script which included only his scenes. But he said that Captain America, Chris Evans; might have read the whole script too. When asked why they opt for this procedure, the director duo said:
“Part of our motivation to do that, is that it takes a lot of pressure off of people. Because it is hard to constantly censor yourself about what you’re saying and how you talk. We take a lot of pressure off of people by saying that- ‘Okay, the less you know the less you have to mind yourself.’ “
The clips and trailers of Avengers: Endgame haven’t shown much, but sometimes less is more and the trailers have built the hype up nicely. But people should put a leash on their theories as The Russo Brothers say that everything shown till now could, “all be fake.”
If anything, that statement is just bound to make people more excited to head to the theatres.
Avengers: Endgame opens in theaters on 26th April
