Lately, the film is a bit of a household name. However, the filmmakers just revealed what they almost called the film, and it would’ve changed everything.
At first, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said he was going to release Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2.
Even when Infinity War came out, the titled for Endgame wasn’t revealed, which led fans into a frenzy online.
On the podcast, they also revealed they almost went with a popular fan choice — Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet. That is an interesting revelation considering Avengers star Zoe Saldana accidentally mentioned that name back in 2018.
The brothers also talked about the movies insane runtime — which was previously leaked — of 3 hours and if they considered splitting it up into two films.
“We used to joke about (splitting it) all the time,” they said. “Because Alan Horn at Disney had overseen Lord of the Rings and he used to joke about it. Like, three hour movie, just cut it in half.”
However, they didn’t feel like it was the proper way to tell the story.
“I don’t know that it would have achieved this kind of success had we split it up,” they continued.
Other Endgame news
Avengers: Endgame is nw the most-tweeted about film ever, beating out Black Panther.. Endgame has been included in more than 50 million tweets. In those tweets, many people used the amazing Endgame emojis.
Outside of the worldwide record, it also beat Titanic domestically with $619.7 million.
The highest-grossing movie ever was Avatar at $2.788 billion worldwide, so we’ll have to wait to see if the Avengers can beat that.
Avengers: Endgame has beaten many records since even before its debut. For one, it sold five times as many tickets as Infinity War during its first week of presales. This should come as no surprise with the demand of tickets being crazy enough for fans to spend upward of $15,000 for a pair.
Also, the film broke the record for Atom Tickets’ best-selling movie of all time in only 10 days.
Once it premiered, the records only kept coming. It officially had the biggest box office weekend in film history.
It completely shattered records, with the previous film at the No. 1 spot being Avengers: Infinity War which made $640 million its opening weekend.
As far as domestic records go, the film came out on top as well. It made an estimated $350 million this weekend, passing Infinity War which made $258 million.
It was projected to make between $230 and $283 million domestically, which it far surpassed.
Also, it had a worldwide projection of $800 million, which The Hollywood Reporter estimated it would surpass.
Even though the film has been out for almost two weeks, people are still attempting to avoid spoilers. A little over a week before Avengers: Endgame hit theaters, footage was reportedly leaked online. Then, when the film came out, one man even got attacked for revealing the end outside of a theater. The Russo brothers have now said that after two full weekends, its OK for people to ruin the ending.
In other news, It was previously announced that Endgame would close out Phase 3 of the MCU. However, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed he now has other plans.
Avengers: Endgame is monumental for so many ways. For one, it features the final cameo by Marvel legend Stan Lee, who passed away last year at age 95.
