Joe and Anthony Russo took a lot of precautions when they were making Avengers: Endgame. The second-half of the directorial duo’s two-part Avengers movie, Endgame was supposed to culminate the past ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Russos took extra steps to make sure that spoilers wouldn’t make it out online – and that included creating fake scripts of the movie.
Now, it looks like Endgame star Karen Gillan wants to see those scripts get turned into its own movie for fans.
Speaking in an interview with ComicBook.com to help promote her upcoming film, Jumanji: The Next Level, Gillan talks about Endgame and how she’d like to see the fake scripts for the film turned into an actual movie. The Guardians of the Galaxy actress talks about the process behind making Endgame and how secretive Marvel was when it as developing the film.
“No, I didn’t know what was happening [on Endgame],” Gillan told the entertainment news outlet, “[On Jumanji] I get the whole thing. But you know, they wrote a fake script on Avengers: Endgame, so they would give out a script, but it wasn’t the real script! I want to see that script made into a movie. Can you imagine?”
It would be wild to see those fake scripts made. We can only wonder what sort of things the Russos wrote for those scripts, and whether they’d form one cohesive narrative. In previous interviews, the directors revealed that only a few actors in Endgame’s cast like Iron Man’s Robert Downey Jr. and Captain America’s Chris Evans got real scripts. The Russos had to make sure that actual scripts went to people with enough discipline to keep the scripts to themselves – imagine what would have happened had the actual scripts gone to Tom Holland or to Mark Ruffalo.
