The following contains spoilers for Avengers: Endgame.
Avengers: Endgame is already one of the biggest movies ever made following a record shattering opening weekend. However, for the cast and crew the biggest thing about the film coming out may be that they can now actually talk about about the movie. While the entire world hasn't seen the movie yet, a lot of people have, and the cast has already begun to loosen up. Chris Pratt has even published a video he took on the set that he really would have gotten in trouble for at the time, but it looks awesome now. If you've already seen the movie, check it out.
The video shows a lot of the cast of the film, and a few of their stunt doubles, all surrounding one of the final sets in the film, showing the Avengers base destroyed. We see several Guardians of the Galaxy stunt doubles in makeup, the members of the actual cast are all in street clothes and they're going over a scene.
It's a really impressive collection of people. Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth, Sebastian Stan and Tom Holland, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Chadwick Boseman, and more, are all in one place. Sean Gunn jokes that he's the most famous person in the room. A lot of these people are probably used to being the most famous person in the room.
People joke with Pratt about how illegal the video is, and yet, he's able to take it and he got off the set with it. I'm honestly shocked that he was able to get his phone on the set in the first place. You'd think those sorts of things wouldn't be allowed just to prevent the temptation of doing exactly this. If nothing else, the video confirms various characters being on the set during a key part of the film, something which the marketing was very clear about leaving out.
In his Instagram post Chris Pratt just says that he couldn't help himself but get pictures of this moment considering just how huge the moment was, seeing so many of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's actors on set working to make this scene perfect. Considering how secret the production largely was, there probably isn't a great deal of official behind the scenes footage (though there is certainly some) so videos like this may be some of the few peeks we have into moments like this.
The only thing more epic than this is actually seeing the scene that was filmed here, when Avengers: Endgame and the entire MCU, comes to a head. Calling this a long awaited conclusion feels like a significant understatement considering that the movie made over $1 billion around the world on opening weekend. While that has as much to do with the luck of release dates in foreign territories like China lining up, the film has shattered nearly every opening weekend record that exists. It seems that bringing all these people together in one place was just as big a deal as Chris Pratt thought it was.
