Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Evans get emotional about what Avengers: Endgame means for the MCU in a new behind-the-scenes video.
Avengers: Endgame is truly an end of an era for the MCU, with multiple characters bowing out of the franchise. In a new behind-the-scenes video, some of the film’s stars have shared their thoughts on it all.

Mark Ruffalo said: “We all made a bond that I think is really exceptional and rare, and we got to do really great stuff that the fans really loved. You know that’s kind of coming to an end, so it was always a little bittersweet, and it was always on everybody’s mind. Like I’d be in a scene with Robert [Downey Jr.] and I look over at him and we’d just be like ‘We did this.’ And that was really moving at times.”
Chris Hemsworth added: “I certainly had a lot of nostalgia, sort of melancholy. These people have become family, we’ve shared so many years of our lives together now.”
Chris Evans, whose time in the MCU has now finished, said: “You anticipate it being an emotional experience, but then when they actually say ‘Chris you’re wrapped,’ and it’s done, it’s like that graduation day: You know it’s coming, but then when it hits you can’t prepare for it. It was more emotional than I expected.”
Of course, the MCU itself isn’t finished yet but things will likely look and feel quite different going forward.
