    Russo Brothers Reveal The SHOCKING ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Idea Pitched By Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige

    ‘Avengers: Endgame’ killed off Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, but Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige originally wanted an even bigger bloodbath. Filmmakers Anthony and Joe Russo recently confirmed on the ‘Happy Sad Confused‘ podcast that Feige pitched them killing off all the original Avengers. This included Chris Evans (Captain America), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), and Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), who would’ve met their demise.

    Marvel Studios has been on a hot streak for the last 10 years with everything they have released. So, was this idea the twist viewers sought, or would it have triggered the downfall of the giant MCU empire?

    Joe Russo disclosed on the podcast, “There were lots of rumors swirling about who was gonna die.” He continued, “Kevin did actually pitch, at one point, taking all the OGs off the board. We thought it was way too aggressive and that the audience wouldn’t be able to process it. And that, in fact, picking one or two characters to make sacrifices throughout the movie might give you moments throughout the film where the action could stop and you could have emotional catharsis and then continue with the narrative.”

    The studio unveiled its plans for the next three years with two new Avengers movies being announced. ‘Avengers: The Kang Dynasty’ and ‘Avengers: Secret Wars‘ will both make their way into theatres in 2025. This may seem like it’s pretty far away, but Marvel is known for teasing their upcoming film with post-credit scenes. But, it seems like they might be doing it differently this time around.

    During a new interview with, the Marvel Studios boss revealed how the post-credits scenes could build towards the next two Avengers films. “The truth is, all of the tags are never just about the future. There are tags that are eating shwarma, Captain America saying you know you gotta learn patience, sometimes, you know, you wait for something that’s not worth it. So they are always fun for us,” Feige said. “We don’t want everything to feel the same. So some of the tags will connect and some of them won’t. Some of the films and shows will connect; some of them won’t.

    He continued, “I think it’s just as important that we can have standalone introductory stories like ‘Ms. Marvel’, like ‘Moon Knight’, in addition to things that interconnect and build towards the larger story. A lot of what we’ve been doing has been building to this larger story, obviously with ‘The Kang Dynasty’ and the ‘Multiverse Saga’, and now I think people will, I hope, come along for the ride. Both where it’s you’re on the express train to the finale, also when it’s fun, as many of our Phase 1, 2 and 3 films were.

    The most recent Marvel Studios film to hit theatres was ‘Thor: Love and Thunder.’ The film was directed by Taika Waititi and star Chris Hemsworth reprised his role. He was joined by Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher.
