We know that Avengers: Endgame is not just a movie anymore as it will change the way we look into the world of movies. And we have to admit that Marvel has kept all the details of this film in their complete control. Well, it isn’t an easy task for the makers and the strategy which they adopted tells us about the bond among the cast of the film. But one of the major reasons is that the directors don’t reveal the plot to all the actors working on the film, in fact, they revealed in a recent interview with Rotten Tomatoes that only one actor from the entire cast of Endgame has read the films’ entire scripts.
I know you all want to know the name of that star but before that I want all of you to have a look at the modesty and friendship of all these stars. as the cast of Endgame had no problem with the fact that there’s one star among them who knows everything and they just don’t. Well, here’s what Joe Russo said,
“[Robert Downey Jr.] was probably the only one to actually read the entire script,” Joe Russo revealed to Rotten Tomatoes. “I think Benedict [Cumberbatch] got the script that included his scenes only. [Chris] Evans might have read the whole script.”
Well, most of the people must be thinking that it wasn’t the best idea because there could be some cold wars but it has been declined by Anthony Russo who clearly shows the big picture of this idea. He believes this provided pure freedom to all other stars because in the past the stars felt a lot of restrictions around themselves. On top of which, they always seemed to be worried about their words. Anthony said,
“Part of our motivation to do that is it just takes a lot of pressure off of people. I mean, it is hard to constantly censor yourself about what you’re saying. How you talk because these movies are your whole life. It’s everything you’re doing all day long, the inclination is to talk about it. So we take a lot of pressure off of people just by saying, ‘Okay, the less you know, the less you have to mind yourself.'”
Here’s the interview, watch:
Also, Joe went on to talk about the mentality and the whole plan behind this decision. Also, how they managed to get the results right, as he said,
“[Chris] Hemsworth’s character, Thor, doesn’t need to know what Captain America’s doing for most of Infinity War, so Hemsworth reads his scenes and Evans reads his scenes, so if they don’t read the rest of the movie, they don’t know what’s going on with it, and it makes it easier to have conversations with people. We kept it going through, even more so, with Endgame. There are more secrets in Endgame than there are in Infinity War.”
There was a lot of complication in filming but Anthony assured that the sole purpose of this is to keep all the details of the movie sealed and, the biggest winner of this strategy are fans of course as they had to wait a lot for the release of this film. But, they’re blessed not to know anything about the plot. And now, with just 6 days remaining in the release of the film, all the fans have left all the social media platforms in order to escape from any kind of spoilers.
“Writing is one of my strengths and all I can say is that I observe things and try my best in order to convert them into words without the pressure of satisfying people’s demands.”
