Avengers: Endgame might have been a major commercial and critical success for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, however, the movie’s writers seem to worry that Marvel might ruin the effect of the comic book movie someday.
Speaking in an interview with Screen Rant, Endgame writers Christopher Marks and Stephen McFeely talked about their concerns now that the movie’s finally over with. According to the duo, they’re afraid that Marvel might undo the work that they’ve done in Endgame by bringing back characters like Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Rober Downey Jr.).
“I do worry that if they do stuff like that, it’ll ding Endgame in the rearview mirror,” McFeely said after Markus expressed concern about Marvel bringing fallen heroes back, “This is such an important and such an interesting moment in movies, because a very successful studio just put their tools down.”
We understand why the writing duo would be considered about Marvel’s plans for the future. The studio used to have a reputation of undoing deaths – look at Loki (Tom Hiddleston) whose death is still debated by the Marvel fan.
Heartbreaking as they were, Iron Man, Captain America, and Black Widow’s (Scarlett Johansson) fates suited the needs of the movie. Their deaths were organic, and moving. Bringing the heroes back from the dead would only take away the weight of their loss in the franchise.
We’re hoping that Marvel honors these heroes' deaths by keeping them dead as the studio moves on to Phase 4 of the MCU.
Avengers: Endgame is available on Digital HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
