End of ‘Avengers’ movies covered in high-level Hollywood secrecy
LOS ANGELES: Walt Disney Marvel Studios went to great lengths to keep the plot of movie Avengers: Endgame under wraps until its highly anticipated debut in theatres this week, stars and directors said in interviews.
Endgame will offer the “grand conclusion” to a 22-movie story for six of Marvel’s Avengers — Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and the Hulk, according to Joe Russo, who directed new film with his brother Anthony.
Marvel took extra steps to keep plot secret during filming, and many of movie’s A-list cast said they did not know how exactly story would unfold.
“Endgame” begins rolling out in theatres around the world on Wednesday.
Brie Larson, who plays newest big-screen hero, Captain Marvel, called Endgame the “most secretive movie possible.” For scenes where she had no lines, Larson said she would be called to the movie’s set without any script for guidance.
“I’d just have to be on set figuring it out,” she said, “which is very intimidating to the new kid.”
Mark Ruffalo, actor who plays the Hulk, said he had not read a full script for the film and was unsure how it would end.
