The feelings are contradictory: a year ago came to the cinemas Avengers: Endgamethe film which is then transformed into the highest-grossing of the story. So it was the end of one of the most important sagas of the cinema, which had begun in 2008 and which came to have 22 films scattered in these eleven years. Clear: happiness and sadness were mixed to see the outcome of this story.
Now: on the occasion of this anniversary, Joe and Anthony Russo (the directors) decided to go to the social networks and share a particular experience with the fans: turned to see Avengers: Endgame and, as they did, were sharing certain beads of the film.
So, for example, revealed that at some point they thought that the Captain America could prove to be the gem of the soul (but quickly backtracked with the idea, that the majority of the scenes of Mark Ruffalo playing the Hulk made in “pajamas” (then the technology came on the scene), or that all wept when they heard the melody composed by Alan Silvestri in the historical scene of the portals.

But of course, in addition to anecdotes, the brothers Russo also shared some videos unpublished of the filming. Among them: how were the goodbyes to Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans on the set of Avengers: Endgame, that is, their last moments playing Iron Man and Captain America, respectively.

Remember: during the filming of this last part of the saga, the secrecy was absolute. Each member of the staff (actors, technicians, assistant and others) had the order not to share anything of what was happening, for to avoid being filtered details of how the story would end.
However, some of the small films were made, that now, with the time, came to light. So you can see both Downey Jr. as to Evans very excited while they are removed from the set, in the middle of a wide acclaim of all the equipment.
“A lot of love and respect for this gentleman”commented the brothers Russo on the actor who played Captain America on Twitter. “The true definition of a legend”described the man to put on the skin of Iron Man. “What we love 3.000”, detailed, referring to one of his memorable phrases in the film.
The videos, of course, add a little more melancholy when you remember another detail: none of the two will interpret these characters. Or, at least, is something very unlikely. Will, then, memory.
