Avengers: Endgame Stars Are Finally Sharing The Adorable Behind-The-Scenes Content We Need

We will not be satiated.

The Avengers: Endgame spoiler ban has lifted, according to directors Joe and Anthony Russo themselves, and the Marvel stars are celebrating by sharing some behind-the-scenes content that they were never meant to have. Rejoice!

This is the Marvel family content we need in our lives, but we warn you there are Endgame spoilers included.

Here’s Chris Evans and Chadwick Boseman hanging out on set before a big battle sequence.

Look at these handsome good boys!

Robert Downey Jr. has been getting well and truly around sharing peaks into the on-set bonding, including this Happy Birthday serenade in celebration of the 11th anniversary of the first Iron Man film.

He also shared some silly behind-the-scenes content…

Along with this seriously cool but confronting slow-mo clip of filming the keep away scene with Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet. While Chris Hemsworth naps peacefully.

At least you can soothe your woes with more adorable footage of the Avengers cast bonding.

We are farewelling not only the Avengers and their on-screen narrative, but also this team of stars and their off-screen bonding. It will all be gravely missed.

Avengers: Endgame Directors Announce An Official Date That Marks The End Of The Ban On Spoilers, So Be Prepared

See the film now or forever hold your peace.

Naturally, there has been grace period for Avengers: Endgame during which spoilers have been on lock down. Out of respect for fellow Marvel fans who have not yet seen the film, the expectation has been that the film’s key plot points not be spoken about openly without permission. That ban ranges from office chat to news headlines, and although Twitter is always a mess of spoilers, everywhere else has complied nicely.

But that ban is about to end, according to Endgame directors Anthony and Joseph Russo. So if you still haven’t seen the film and you’re looking to avoid spoilers. that’s going to get a whole lot more difficult come Monday.

The Russo Brothers announced on GMA that the spoiler ban lifts Monday, just less than two weeks after the film’s release.

Even though they are the directors and that seems like pretty clean cut permission for free reign in the spoiler-verse, we expect it will look more like a loosening rather than a lift on the ‘ban’. At least for a little longer.

But to be safe, you should see the film ASAP or resign to have some major plot pieces revealed to you before experiencing them for yourself.

As The Highest Paid Avenger, Exactly How Much Was Robert Downey Jr. Paid For End Game?

I need to sit down.

In case you didn’t notice, the Avengers franchise is kind of a big deal. And in case you really weren’t paying attention, Robert Downey Jr. AKA Tony Stark AKA Iron Man, is the biggest player in that franchise. He has the pay cheque to prove it.

RDJ has been Iron Man since 2008, and as the face of the Avengers franchise he has an extra ~special~ financial arrangement that was negotiated with the studio chief.

To contextualise just how much he’s valued by Marvel, take this example. Robert Downey Jr. received US$5 million a day for three day’s work in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. $5 million and he’s not even the movie’s protagonist – that is the dream.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, RDJ’s take home from Avengers: Infinity War – which grossed more than US$2 billion – was at least US$75 million(!???!??!????!!!!)

Other Avengers players like Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Chris Evans (Captain America) all earned within the US$15 -$20 million for Infinity War. It’s a sum I wouldn’t be complaining about but a significant amount behind RDJ.

As for Endgame, the film has already grossed over US$1.5 billion at box office and it hasn’t run out of steam yet. Plus, bonuses for the Avengers actors apparently kick in after $1.5 billion so that’s a win for them.

(Spoilers ahead for Endgame)

Considering that the final Avengers film also sees Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man meet his final fate, it makes sense that his pay out for the film would be even more than Infinity War. More than $75 million. The exact amount has yet to be revealed but I think we can preemptively say, well done RDJ.
