New photos surface online showing MCU stars Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. on set during the filming of Avengers: Endgame’s time heist.
Avengers: Endgame stars Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. are seen joking around between takes in behind-the-scenes images posted to social media.
Instagram account onset.unseen, which hosts a slew of BTS images from various high-pr0file film sets, posted images showing the two most famous Avengers on set. The first photo is a black-and-white image depicting Downey Jr. pulling a facetious sad face, possibly to get a reaction out of his star-spangled colleague. Steve Rogers is clad in his The Avengers outfit, placing this snapshot as taken during the filming of Iron Man and Captain America’s return to the Battle of New York, where they try and fail to retrieve the Tesseract from S.H.I.E.L.D.
The second photo, this time in color, shows Evans interacting with another cast member while Downey Jr. looks on. The Tony Stark actor’s gaze appears to be aimed down toward Evans’ back, prompting comments on the photo joking about what Downey Jr. is really looking at. “Tony be like: That is American’s A$$,” one comment reads, with others agreeing. The comment references an oft-quoted scene in Avengers: Endgame where Tony teases Steve about his old Avengers outfit. Tony remarks, “Mr. Rogers, I almost forgot — that suit did nothing for your ass,” after which Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), defends the suit, saying, “I think you look great, Cap. As far as I’m concerned, that’s America’s ass.”
The loss of both characters at the end of the movie resulted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s future being called into question, with some fans worrying that the initial success of the Infinity Saga couldn’t be replicated without the original team. However, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige remains confident in the superhero group’s cinematic future, suggesting the lack of a clear roster or direction for the Avengers is intentional. “I think you will see that question addressed, and people struggling with that very question, within the MCU right now,” Feige responded when asked about Avengers 5 during an interview.
Eternals director Chloé Zhao believes the foundations for her film were laid in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. In the teaser trailer, the Eternals can be seen debating who will lead the Avengers “now that Captain Rogers and Iron Man are both gone.” The MCU’s focus on the Stark-Rogers dynamic was recently subverted by What If…?, with the Disney+ show spotlighting other relationships, including a friendship between Natasha Romanoff and Captain Carter.
