Avengers: Endgame released in April. The movie went on to become the highest-grossing movie of all-time. But the Russo Brothers have now revealed that there was a record it made that many people weren’t aware of.
Talking to IMDb at the San Diego Comic-Con, Joe and Anthony Russo joked that they probably have they featured the “most expensive shot in movie history.” Which scene is it? Well, the scene in the discussion is Iron Man aka Tony Stark’s funeral. Fans would remember that almost all the Avengers and a few non-Avengers characters were also present at the venue.
The directors and writers revealed that there were so “many salaries on the screen” at that moment. “We used to joke, and I don’t know if it’s joking, it’s probably the most expensive shot in movie history. 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,” Joe Russo opined. “For people to just stand there, they’re not even moving,” Avengers: Endgame co-writer Christopher Markus added.
“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,’” he added.
