From Thor’s Transformation to Black Widow’s Death, Marvel Answers Avengers Endgame Questions


The hype and hoopla around Avengers: Endgame refuses to die down. After Endgame dethroned James Cameron’s Avatar and became the highest-grossing film of all time, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and producer Trinh Tran took to Twitter for a Q&A session with fans.

In the session, the two answered fan questions about Avengers: Endgame, Marvel’s superheroes and Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here’s what they revealed about the film and some of its prime characters:

In MCU, Thor is one of the characters that underwent a major transformation. In his first solo film, he’s shown as an arrogant, proud God of Thunder, and with the arrival of Endgame, he was transformed into a depressed superhero who runs from his responsibilities and binges on pizzas and burgers. Talking about his transformation, Kevin wrote, “(Chris) Hemsworth is an amazing actor, and we wanted to give him the ability to showcase another side of Thor. We destroyed Mjolnir, cut his hair, and ripped his cape off in Ragnarok; this was just another step to change him as a character (sic).”

Fans had quite a lot of questions about Scarlett Johansson’s character, Black Widow. In Endgame, Natasha Romanoff accompanies Clint Barton aka Hawkeye to Vormir and sacrifices her life for Soul Stone. While a fan asked if there were there any other superheroes to replace them, another asked, what is the best thing about Black Widow.

Answering them, Kevin revealed:

Kevin also revealed that fantasy sci-fi film Back To The Future has been a major inspiration for the film. However, he refused to name any other, saying that it will fall in the category of “spoiler territory”.

The film’s title also created a lot of buzz among fans. Before the official announcement, a number of speculative titles made their way to the Internet and one among them was ‘Avengers: Infinity War 2’. Answering about their decision to go with ‘Endgame’ as the final title, producer Trihn said, “We wanted to make these two movies distinctive and give each their own story. Infinity War was a story about Thanos, and Endgame was a story about our heroes (sic).”
