Avengers: Endgame is one of the biggest movies of all time. It’s dynamic storylines and characters kept us on our toes the entire three hours of the film, so it’d probably be a lot for creatures to make such a complex film.

Endgame screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have written many films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is a challenge.

Now, they’ve opened up about the hardest part about writing both Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.

“We were nervous at that moment because it was such a big project,” McFeely said to Variety. “It would take up so much of our lives and it would be the biggest puzzle that we ever would put together as writers. That was scary and we we said okay, we should probably do scary things and if successful, it might be really amazing.”

“We knew this would never come around again,” Markus added.” For someone to offer you the culmination of this big of an undertaking, that’s never going to happen again. And as consuming and sometimes painful as it was over the past four and a half years that we’ve been working on it, it will never happen again. To walk away from it would seem like something that you’re really going to kick yourself about later.”

The pair also recently opened up about the scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier where viewers find out that Captain America’s love interest, Peggy Carter, is married with two children.

The writers have now explained that the man she was married to was Captain America himself and the kids are his. The idea is that she married Captain America from the main MCU timeline prior to him going `back in time at the end of the movie.

Although future plans are not set-in-stone, McFeely says that it was their “intention that he was always the father of those two children.”

“There is some conversation to be had on this,” he continued. “Quantum physics works in interesting ways, and what Marvel chooses to do is not up to us but … it was our intention that he was always the father of those two children. But again, there are time travel loopholes for that.”

The idea that the children belong to the character brings up the idea that “there are two children who have somewhat super soldier DNA,” Markus said.

Other Avengers: Endgame news

Avengers: Endgame finally got a post-credit scene two weeks after its debut — the latest trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home.

The Russo brothers opened up to fans on the Happy Sad Confused podcast about why a scene with  13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford was cut from the film. But be warned — there are a lot of spoilers there too.

On the same podcast, the brothers also revealed they almost had a totally different name for the film.

Also, Avengers: Endgame is now 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.

Also, it was recently  reported that Avengers: Endgame took the spot of second-highest grossing film in the world from Titanic. It made $2.189 billion. Titanic made $2.128 billion.

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.

The latest Marvel film made an estimated $1.2 billion in the worldwide box office for its opening, according to Disney. It is the only film ever to cross the $1 billion mark for its debut.

It completely shattered records, with the previous film at the No. 1 spot being Avengers: Infinity War which made $640 million its opening weekend.

Also, it had a worldwide projection of $800 million, which The Hollywood Reporter estimated it would surpass.

It is currently the second-highest rated MCU film on Rotten Tomatoes behind Black Panther.

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. Then, it was revealed that Marvel actually compiled all of Lee’s cameos and behind-the-scenes footage into a video, that they might release with the Endgame DVD.

Avengers: Endgame is in theaters now. Check out one of the trailers below.
