AVENGERS: ENDGAME Directors Reveal The Marvel Studios Movie's Single Most Expensive Shot

Avengers: Endgame was a very large, very expensive movie, and now directors Joe and Anthony Russo have revealed which shot cost the most...and no, it wasn't an action sequence! Read on for details...

Avengers: Endgame is officially the highest grossing movie of all-time, and that's something Disney must be very happy about, especially given how huge the budget was! Now, though, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have shed some light on the most expensive shot in the film...which might just be the priciest scene in movie history if they're to be believed. 

So, which is it? Tony Stark/Iron Man's star-studded funeral scene. 

"We used to joke, and I don’t know if it’s joking, it’s probably the most expensive shot in movie history," Joe said, revealing that he cost of the cast is what drove the price up. "That’s a lot of salary on the screen there. At the very least it’s the most expensive day of extras in movie history, outside of Cleopatra."

As for how they managed to make that sequence a reality without it leaking online beforehand, it boiled down to having to mislead the cast and tell them that they were shooting a wedding.

"They were all brought there under this pretense that they were coming for a wedding — it’s kind of heartbreaking to think about now — but they all have managers, and agents, and hair and make up, and we can’t tell anybody what we’re up to, because it can leak through one of a thousand sources," Joe explains.
 
"So they were all brought there under the pretense that they’re coming for a wedding, and the day they got there and we started to dress them in the black outfits, they said, ‘This is a very strange wedding.’ We said, ‘It’s because it’s actually a funeral.’" Anthony went on to reveal that only Gwyneth Paltrow had been warned because "it was an enormous character moment."

"Maybe one or two of the other actors we knew it was a big moment for. But no, most of them found out on that day, so it’s a testament to what good actors they are," he concluded.

revealed for Marvel Studios' Phase 4 movies at Comic-Con!

During the panel, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that every movie released up until now is part of "The Infinity Saga." Here, we see the brand new logo for those first three phases. 
 
Image


This is a fairly simple logo but one which may match the tone. Kevin Feige said it will be 100% Jack Kirby-inspired so it's a little surprising that there's not more evidence of that in this title.
 
Image


Sadly, we'll never get to see Iron Man battle the real Mandarin but he will be the lead villain of this movie. In case the title didn't make it clear, that logo emphasises those ten (magic?) rings too.
 
Image


The Doctor Strange logo has received something of an overhaul but it's interesting to see how the subtitle is even bigger. Scarlet Witch will appear in the sequel so the red may be a homage to her.
 
Image


Just like Thor: Ragnarok had a very unique logo, so too does Thor: Love and Thunder. That's a title which could have a number of meanings, particularly now we know Valkyrie is indeed gay. 
 
Image


Honestly, what else did you expect? This is to the point and exactly what you would expect from a gritty movie featuring the fan-favourite Avenger. It's good to see her logo front and centre too.
 
Image


The biggest surprise at Comic-Con was, of course, the fact that Blade is returning to the big screen. This logo perfectly emcompasses the fact that the Vampire Hunter operates both night and day. 
 
Image


This may be titled The Falcon and The Winter Soldier but the presence of Captain America's shield should tell you all you need to know; Sam Wilson is going to take on that persona on Disney+!
 
Image


This is still a pretty weird title but it's easy to see the 50s inspiration here. It's been said on a number of occasions that the show will have a retro aesthetic as we head into the MCU's suburbs.
 
Image


This title treatment is very different and it's hard to say what, if anything, it tells us about the series. What we do know, though, is that it will revolve around the God of Mischief from 2012. 
 
Image


This is simple but awesome and if you look closely, you may notice that we get what could be our first look at the show's animation style. Is that the Red Skull wearing Captain America's suit?
 
Image


The logo for Hawkeye is obviously inspired by Matt Fraction's run and that makes sense, especially as the comic book series revolved around Clint Barton training and working with Kate Bishop. 
Image


And here it is, Marvel's Phase 4 slate. However, this probably isn't the entire slate because these movies and TV shows are only spread out over two years and that would be a very short Phase!
