That’s an amazing feat, and Marvel Studios has found a very clever way to continue promoting the movie in recent weeks by allowing the cast to share the photos and videos they took while on set. The spoiler embargo on the film has, of course, lifted and that means the likes of Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Elizabeth Olsen, and Brie Larson have all been able to shine a spotlight on some big moments.
There’s a lot of amazing content here, including deleted scenes (featuring both Iron Man and the Scarlet Witch), the cast having a huge amount of fun during that epic final battle, and a closer look at the physical transformation actors like Zoe Saldana and Jeremy Renner went through.
So, to check out these behind-the-scenes photos and videos from the set of Avengers: Endgame, simply hit the “View List” button!

At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Chris Evans dons some impressive looking prosthetics in order to look like an old man. That likely required him to spend hours in a makeup chair, and the actor recently shared a behind-the-scenes look at the transformation he went through…at the halfway stage!
A Deleted Scarlet Witch Scene
It appears as if a number of small changes were made to the movie’s final battle thanks to reshoots, and Elizabeth Olsen shared a video revealing what seems to be an alternate entrance for Scarlet Witch as she lands in the battlefield and takes out a number of soldiers.
In Avengers: Endgame, she first showed up in a confrontation with Thanos that was arguably far more impactful.
Happy Birthday, Josh Brolin
Josh Brolin was lucky enough to celebrate his birthday on the set of Avengers: Endgame and the actor shared this video of the movie’s cast wishing (well, singing) him many happy returns. As you can see, it was a rather star-studded celebrations as it was shot during the massive final battle.
Jeremy Renner Becomes Ronin
Jeremy Renner’s Avengers: Endgame haircut has had everyone talking for months and in this very cool time-lapse video, the actor shows his hair being chopped off in order to create the archer’s new look (so, make sure to show this to your barber if you fancy getting the same thing).
Captain America And Black Panther

In this fantastic behind-the-scenes shot shared by Chris Evans, Captain America stands tall alongside Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, a character who will more than likely take his place as the leader of the New Avengers as we move into the Phase 4 films.
Marvel’s Trinity Battles Thanos
This jaw-dropping BTS video shows Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man squaring off with Josh Brolin’s Thanos, and it’s going to be great seeing more from this fight once the Blu-ray lands.
Zoe Saldana Becomes Gamora
So, you probably thought that making Gamora look green was a massively complicated process, right? Well, it is (poor Zoe Saldana spends hours in the make-up chair) but who would have thought that she applied her own lipstick to finish off her transformation?

In this awesome shot shared by the Russo Brothers, Joe gets his hands on Stormbreaker (who cool would it be to be able to buy a replica of that bad boy?) and chats with Chris Hemsworth during what was presumably one of the first days the actor was on set.
What A Cast
There’s so much to love in this little clip:

Another video from the final battle, this one sees Chris Evans point out a number of moments on set that he enjoyed, many of which would make for hilarious GIFs if we had clearer shots of them!
Flashback to a little lunch @RobertDowneyJr threw while we were shooting @Avengers. What can I say, the music took hold of me…🕺🏻🤷♂️ @ChrisEvans #paulrudd @Renner4Real @Russo_Brothers @MarkRuffalo #scarlettjohansson pic.twitter.com/UfzHPxRsMY
— Chris Hemsworth (@chrishemsworth) May 7, 2019
Well, this is awesome. In a video shared by Chris Hemsworth, the music takes hold of the God of Thunder and he starts dancing away as the rest of the movie’s amazing cast enjoy some lunch.
— Brie Larson (@brielarson) April 29, 2019
Avengers: Endgame was a particularly special experience for Brie Larson as it marked the first time she played Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is a simple behind the scenes shot but marks a touching thank you from the Oscar-winning actress.
One of Avengers: Endgame‘s most touching moments comes when Iron Man is reunited with Spider-Man on the battlefield. After years of putting off that hug, Tony Stark embraces Peter Parker, and the conversation they have in the video above is a little different to the one we saw on screen.
Well, This Is Meme Worthy, Right?
— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) May 13, 2019
Mark Ruffalo shared this hilarious shot from the set of the movie and, as you can see, it appears as if they’re having great fun while sitting in the makeup chair getting ready to shoot their scenes.
Robert Downey Jr. Says Goodbye To The MCU
In this emotional video, Robert Downey Jr. shares a look at his final day on set and pokes fun at Chris Evans saying goodbye to the role of Captain America on social media (which created quite the uproar online as fans assumed that meant he would be killed off).
— Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) May 10, 2019
Joe Russo’s daughter Ava actually played Clint Barton’s daughter in Avengers: Endgame and in this video shared by the filmmakers, we get to see just how good she got at archery while filming scenes which were originally going to be used in Avengers: Infinity War.
One of Avengers: Endgame‘s editors recently revealed that Robert Downey Jr.’s “I am Iron Man” moment came as a result of reshoots and the photos shared by the actor here are seemingly from the original sequence when he said nothing to Thanos.
Stan Lee’s Final Cameo
Just because the spoiler ban is lifting, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t treat your fellow humans with respect and dignity during discourse. Or that you should run around intentionally trying to spoil the movie for people who haven’t seen it…#BeKindOutThere#NuffSaid pic.twitter.com/MMl6bpXQ4P
— Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) May 6, 2019
Avengers: Endgame sadly marks Stan Lee’s final cameo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Russo Brothers shared this touching behind the scenes photo earlier this month in which they’re pictured alongside the legendary comic book creator while he’s decked out in his 1970s costume.
Avengers: Love Island
You probably won’t find this funny unless you live in the UK and know what Love Island is, but in a behind-the-scenes video, Scottish actress Karen Gillan pulled off an excellent English accent to poke fun at the reality TV series while tying it into Avengers: Endgame!
The “Illegal” Video That Started It All
It was Chris Pratt who first shared an “illegal” video from the set of Avengers: Endgame, and we quickly learned that while the cast was told not to film anything, they all had their phones out at key points in production. It’s just lucky that none of their devices were hacked over the past year or so.
Women Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Robert Downey Jr. hosted a lunch for the women of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and, as you can see, it’s an impressive, amazing group.
After that inspiring A-Force moment in Avengers: Endgame, there are a lot of fans out there who now hope to see the female team assemble one day.
