Marvel actor Sebastian Stan shares that shooting Avengers: Endgame was challenging because he wasn’t allowed to read the film’s script in its entirety.
Actor Sebastian Stan revealed that Marvel Studios’ shooting Avengers: Endgame was a particularly tough experience for him.
In an interview with the Happy Sad Confused podcast, the Winter Soldier himself was asked if there was ever an instance during his acting career where he had to perform a scene with no context. Stan remembered that the last one avengers movie was hard to film because he couldn’t read the full script. He wasn’t the only one who prevented this, as many other actors who only appeared during the film’s climax were not allowed to read the screenplay in its entirety. Many were even scripted with fake scenes to prevent spoilers from leaking out.
“I need to understand what I’m doing, that’s why Avengers: Endgame was really, kinda hard when we shot it…because you know, a lot of us didn’t read the scripts,” Stan explained. “I think only a few people had read them and I was like , ‘F***, I can’t.’ Admittedly, it was the Russos and there were a lot of people who had faith, but most of the time I need to know what’s going on.”
The Bucky Barnes actor shared his take on the Multiverse shenanigans that have been appearing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) lately. “I’m always so amazed and in awe of the vast universe of it all that they were able to build,” he said. Despite his praise, Stan confessed that he was not fully aware of all the twists and turns of the latest shows and movies that have made the vast on-screen universe.
Anthony and Joe Russo’s Avengers: Endgame marked the 22nd entry in the MCU. Serve as a direct sequel to the previous one avengers movie, Avengers: Infinity War, the film largely follows the original six members of the Avengers in the wake of Thanos wiping out half of all life in the universe with the powerful Infinity Stones. Determined to restore balance, the Avengers embark on a journey through space and time to recapture the Infinity Stones in an effort to bring back the many lives lost.
Considering that Avengers: Endgame was the pinnacle of everything Marvel Studios had headed to at the time, unsurprisingly, it broke countless box office records. Grossing $2.798 billion worldwide, it quickly became the highest-grossing film in the MCU. The film received widespread acclaim from critics and audiences alike for its direction, performances, soundtrack, action choreography, and visual effects.
The MCU is currently in its fourth phase, with Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in theaters on May 6. Avengers: Endgame is currently available to stream on Disney+
