The Avengers Endgame Bonus materials in this Blu-ray DVD collection are incredible! There’s no such a thing in my universe as the last Marvel movie. But what is a true fact is the ability of Marvel Studios to make every single of their movies as there’s no more to come. That Is Spectacular!
Trinh Tran who acted as one of the Executive Producers of Avengers: Endgame, said something that resonated powerfully with me.
The reason why we kept specific characters at the end of ‘Infinity War’ and why they survived is because we wanted the original Avengers in this film to really cope and deal with what has happened.
These are the original Avengers that have gone through the journey with us for the last ten years, and we wanted to really explore their state of mind after what Thanos did to them.
First, this Marvel movie has been directed and produced by some of the best at Marvel Studios universe. Emmy Award®-winning directors Anthony and Joe Russo directed an original screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.
Second, this most anticipated superhero film by all of us stars our favorite characters that we fell in love with many years ago. Of course, we are zonkers about the actors and actresses who took on the role of our beloved Marvel characters:

Love Bloopers? Watch Some from Avengers: Endgame
Captain America as portrayed by Chris Evans is such a likable character with a strong moral code and a tough person to overcome. You really need to spend literally years with him to nip him at his most vulnerable spot.
Here’s from Chris Evans himself.
At the beginning of this film we see a lot broken people. That’s what Marvel’s great at doing. They’ve truly leveled us, not just literally, but morally and emotionally.
The good thing is, it’s always easier to build people back up after they’ve been broken down, but you just have a lot of incomplete characters. Steve still has his back turned on things as a result of ‘Civil War,’ but after Thanos snaps and we lose all these people, he’s really trying to jumpstart that optimism and rediscover that loyalty to conventions bigger than himself to somehow stay afloat.
Otherwise, it’s so easy to just give up, but that’s not in his nature. I think he knows that, so it’s just a matter of how, in the face of the worst possible outcome, do you still be a leader?
““Avengers: Endgame,” brings to the big screen the highest stakes and deadliest showdown ever between the Avengers and the universe’s most powerful and deadliest villain, Thanos. “
With half the world’s population wiped out, Thanos has achieved his mission and done the unthinkable, but it comes with a price for the master villain.
Here’s what Joe Russo says about Thanos’ character.
We wanted to give Thanos a logical argument within reason for committing mass genocide. But we also wanted to give it an emotional sensor.
‘Infinity War’ was structured in way where he’s the hero of the movie, and heroes have to go through trials and tests and sacrifice to get what they want. When he has to kill Gamora, the only person in the universe he loves, to get what he wants, even though everyone knows he’s a bad guy, you can’t help but feel for that choice of having to kill his own daughter. You feel bad for him. That’s partly why he’s become a top-tier villain. It’s because he doesn’t think he’s a villain.
Dr. Strange Takes A Knee Deleted Scene
I love Benedict Cumberbatch who is the best Dr. Strange ever! I had a huge opportunity to be on the Red Carpet of the World Premier for Dr. Strange. Interviewing Benedict Cumberbatch was my dream come true, as I have been a huge fan of this actor and his theatrical, movie and TV career.
Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame New Version of Thor
All fans of … come and get a fair share of this amazing blu-ray dvd with Avengers Endgame bonus clips.
Thor had his chance in Infinity War to journey to Nidavellir where he meets the Guardians for the first time. Thor got his chance to kill Thanos, but failed to do so. And this takes a huge toll on him. Emotioanlly, he is devastated. He feels that he failed his people and himself. And as a result, the universe will suffer from his shortcomings.
This is a powerful and very fascinating approach to a character’s growth and emotional span that directors undertook. Director Anthony Russo explains further.
When we started thinking about Thor and how he would move forward into this film, we took into consideration that he has suffered tremendous loss.
More so than any other character, in the sense that Asgard has been destroyed and now he has to suffer the loss to Thanos. It inspired us to think about how a person like that, who has suffered two devastating losses, moves forward?
He’s carrying more pain than anybody else is. And how would he process that? That tension and inner light that he still carries ends up growing throughout the film in a very rousing way and is perhaps the most entertaining part of the film for Joe and myself.
RDJ Screen Test from
Robert Downey Jr., reflecting on what he has enjoyed over the last 11 years playing the iconic Tony Stark character, says:
I really treasure all of the memories of my co-workers, and all the moments and days we’ve shared on and off set during production.
I still remember Tony landing in the high desert in the eastern Sierras when he escapes the cave. I was buried up to my neck in sand in the midst of a massive sandstorm coming in. We only had a couple minutes to get this take, and it was like God’s grace just came in and gave us the take that was in the movie.
Stan Lee’s iteration of Tony Stark, which was rooted in my generation, that Vietnam kind of anti-establishment, but also hearkening to the kind of Howard Hughes, eccentric- billionaire thing, was just so cool.
‘Endgame’: Part of the Journey Is the End
While audiences regrouped and processed the fact that half of their beloved Marvel Cinematic Universe characters were gone, the filmmakers were carving out the highly anticipated next installment of the Avengers – “Avengers: Endgame.”
Screenwriter Christopher Markus had this to say:
We had the benefit of knowing from very early on that ‘Infinity War’ was going to end with the snap and a very definitive close, which would give ‘Endgame’ a little more of its own space to develop, because it wasn’t a direct continuation of what happened. It was the aftermath.
We didn’t want a straight-up two-parter, and when the story of two films evolved it began to be very clear that ‘Endgame’ was very different structurally and tonally.
FACT: From its inception, the filmmakers made the decision to keep the two films and stories independent of each other. The work over these two movies has been done during a four-year period.
I will refer you to the truly epic Avengers Endgame bonus clips of ‘The Women of the MCU’ where you’ll experience first-hand about the process of making this movie.
Look at some fascinated and very unique ways of making the last two Avengers movies: ‘Infinity War’ and ‘Endgame.’
Anthony Russo, Director of Avengers: Endgame.
We basically had to conceive both films at the same time concurrently with one another. While we always thought about them as two distinct movies, in the bigger picture they were also sort of one coherent expression in our brains.
I would say that all the MCU films share an interconnection, and for us there’s continuity from ‘The Winter Soldier’ to ‘Civil War,’ which is also interconnected to ‘Infinity War.’
Tony Stark Is A Futurist
Who didn’t suffer emotional pains watching Peter Parker, the Spider-Man, turning to dust in ‘Infinity War’? My kids were inconsolable. Spider-Man is all they’ve been living for for many years, dressed up in his costume, drank out of portable cubs and pretend-played shooting his magic string.
When Peter Parker was gone out of their lives during ‘Infinity War’ finale, it was tragedy indeed. Even Tony Stark felt a real gut punch seeing this neighborhood kid dying in a Thanos war.
My own values have affected and been affected by the content of these films. I’ve attempted to infuse them with a sense of my own process. And we’re talking about a decade. Life is fleeting, and a decade really sometimes feels like a lifetime. – Robert Downey Jr.
That is why Tony Stark character had to show his leadership in how to win the Thanos war.
Robert Downey Jr. speaks about his character Iron Man:
If somebody believes you’re a mentor or a figure to them of some projection, you kind of ultimately are, and it can be a good thing, because it can make you strive to be a better person. So for Tony, in his reaction, there is a lot of contemplation and not wanting to run the risk of trying to change a thing because he was one of the lucky ones who made it out.
“He is feeling that sense of obligation to somehow find a solution in the aftermath of destruction. “
