Avengers: Endgame Editor Reveals Captain Marvel/Thanos Fight Was a Last-Second Rewrite

There was no scarcity of epic moments in Avengers: Endgame‘s practically 3-hour runtime, which served because the fruits of greater than ten years of storytelling within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was no small feat to deliver all of it collectively, contemplating the huge quantity of proficient actors required to assemble within the movie’s climactic battle scene. But among the most memorable scenes in that epic struggle sequence got here collectively on the final minute — together with the confrontation between Captain Marvel and Thanos.

Avengers: Endgame editor Jeff Ford advised Slash Film that they expanded Carol Danvers’ half within the battle due to Brie Larson.

“When arrives, that was in the script from day one, the way she comes through the ship,” he revealed. “We knew she was going to do that, but what we did alter and add and expand later, mostly because of how much we loved what Brie was doing with the character, was her fight with before he power punches her back.”

Ford added, “Anthony [Russo] came up with the great idea — this was a reshoot, by the way, at the last minute — he had the great idea that Thanos pulls the power stone out of the gauntlet, and then he punches her with the raw power stone. That is a fantastic use of that prop and that story point, because that’s what you want. And we had to find a way that he could sideline Captain Marvel for a minute, because she’s so powerful, there’s no way to do it.”

While Captain Marvel helped flip the tide within the battle towards Thanos’ forces, she was unable to successfully defeat the Mad Titan as a result of his use of the Infinity Stones. Instead it took some sleight of hand and a good ole’ long-established quip from Iron Man to lastly vanquish the villain.

And whereas Tony Stark could be gone from the MCU, alongside different main heroes like Black Widow and Captain America, this is not the tip of the Avengers. Disney Chairman Bob Iger advised shareholders as we speak that there can be extra appearances from Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in future tasks from Marvel Studios.


“In Marvel’s case, I’m calling it the post-Avengers world, it doesn’t mean there aren’t films being made with characters from the Avengers,” Iger mentioned. “In truth, we’ve got Black Widow popping out, in fiscal ’20, and a Thor 4 film within the works, and I can go on and on. We are also mining different characters like Eternals.”

Black Widow is ready to premiere on May 1, 2020, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in Fall of 2020, The Eternals on November 6, 2020, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on February 12, 2021, Loki in Spring 2021, WandaVision in Spring 2021, Doctor Strange within the Multiverse of Madness on May 7, 2021, What If…? in Summer 2021, Hawkeye in Fall 2021, Thor: Love and Thunder on November 5, 2021, and Black Panther 2 on May 6, 2022.
