Endgame Directors Reveal Why It Was Important That Black Panther Was The First Dusted Hero To Return

A lot of thought went into it.

While promoting the release of Avengers: Endgame on DVD and Blu-ray, the film’s directors Anthony and Joe Russo participated in a Reddit AMA and answered a lot of fan questions.

One of the topics that came up was the reasoning behind why Black Panther was the first dusted hero to return to the fight at the end of the movie and there was a specific reason behind that order.

Joe Russo explained, “We spent a lot of time in the edit room playing around with the sequencing of the portals. We probably didn’t lock that section of the movie until about a month before the film was in theaters.

“We always wanted [Sam Wilson] to be the first one to communicate with [Captain America] via his comm and Sam was last in Wakanda, so logically the first portal that would open would the Wakandan portal.

“And the first person that would logically walk through a portal from Wakanda would be the king himself, bringing his army once again to the defense of Cap and the world.”

So, T’Challa’s entrance was really just due to the fact he was near Sam, plus a whole lot of other heroes were dusted in Wakanda so it made sense that they were the first to appear through the portals.

In the scene, Cap is facing Thanos alone and is getting beaten down, but he then gets the communication from Wilson repeating his iconic line, “On your left,” and the rest is (heartbreaking) history.

The directors also revealed why the cut the scene with all of the Avengers taking a knee following Tony Stark’s death.

“We found the Avengers kneeling scene incredibly emotional as well, but when played in the run of the film, it felt incredibly similar to the moment when all of the heroes stood on the shore at Tony’s funeral, paying their respects to him outside his home,” they wrote.

“The two scenes, when in the film together, seemed to fight one another, and created a repetitious ending.”

They also explained to fans that Captain America was always worthy of picking up Mjolnir and made a conscious decision in Avengers: Age of Ultron to not lift it.

“He always could. Our interpretation of the famous scene in Ultron was that when he realized he could pick up Mjolnir he quickly chose not to, because he didn’t want to embarrass Thor.”

This will likely come as little surprise, but the directors also told fans that the hardest scene to shoot was Tony’s death, which was shot on the last day of production.

Robert Pattinson Says He Smells Like A Crayon And I Need To Know Which Colour

Another wild yarn from R-Patz.

Robert Pattinson has gained quite a reputation for spinning wild yarns during interviews, but his most recent comments on his body odour have me truly shaken.

In a recent interview with Allure the star of the upcoming The Batman film said, “Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon.”

The interviewer – understandably bewildered by this statement – then asked, “Like you’re made of wax?”

To which R-Patz responded, “Yes! Like I’m embalmed.”

I have so many questions. What colour crayon does Pattinson smell like? What brand? Is he using lots of crayons? And most importantly, who are these multiple people who are telling him he smells like crayon!? Is that an insult, or a compliment?

It’s not the first time Robert Pattinson’s scent has come up in conversation. Back in 2009, E! News reported that an unidentified source who worked “very closely” with the actor on New Moon said “he stinks.”

“I mean, it’s awful,” the source said. “He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy.”

“He completely reeks,” an unidentified crew member added. Yikes.

It’s been over a decade since then, so we can only hope Robert Pattinson has swapped his lack of showering for an obsession with crayons. 

Speaking of celebrity scents, celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer dishes on what Post Malone smells like on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

During his interview with Allure, Pattinson was also asked about being recently named the “most handsome man” in the world according to science.

“It’s weird,” he said. “I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people.”

“My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get. And then in Twilight, [Edward is] beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. When I turned up for the auditions, I had done a job where I’d dyed my hair black, because I had an inch and a half of roots, and I had waxed my body. And then I had a few months where I’d been drinking beer all day, so I had this hairless, chubby body. I looked like a baby with a wig on.”

Hairless, chubby, waxed or smelling like a crayon – we’ll take Robert Pattinson any which way.
