The Challenge of Making and Marketing Spider-Man: Far From Home, When No One Could Know What It Was About

Spider-Man being dead wasn’t a huge problem. One would think killing the main character of a movie about year before its release would be exactly that but, for the team behind Spider-Man: Far From Home, it was not. Instead, it was just the first part of a long-in-place plan to raise the stakes for not just one movie, but at least three. Read More >>

Spider-Man: Far From Home Is a Spectacular Leap Forward for Peter Parker and the MCU

Because Spider-Man: Far From Home is the first major Marvel Cinematic Universe film set explicitly after the events of Avengers: Endgame, the great responsibility resting on its shoulders is twofold. Not only does the movie have to bring its titular hero back down to Earth from the most epic adventure of his life, it also has the vital job of setting an overarching tone and perspective for the next phase of Marvel’s grand cinematic project. The great thing is that the film does all of that and a whole hell of a lot more. Read More >>

Before Chris Hemsworth Fought to Keep Thor Fat in Avengers: Endgame, He Almost Played Gambit

Avengers: Endgame takes Thor to an emotional low point so dark that he sinks into an existential, alcohol-fuelled depression. It causes the thunder god to go through a drastic physical transformation we don’t see until halfway through the film. When we first see Thor’s new form, it’s initially played for laughs, but as Endgame unfolds, it’s shown to be a reflection of where the character’s at emotionally. Read More >>

The Soul Stone Was the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Least Interesting MacGuffin

Why Working on 12 Marvel Movies Only Partially Prepared ILM for Avengers: Endgame

Imagine if Avengers: Endgame was the first Marvel movie. Not storywise, of course. That would be silly. But think about a team-up, comic book movie on this scale coming to cinemas, sight unseen. Logistically, that feels like a nightmare for a ton of reasons, especially if a company (or several) was tasked with first conceptualising, then designing, crafting, and eventually digitally creating all of those characters, all from scratch, for a single movie.

Avengers: Endgame Has Some Nerve Making Fun of Time Travel Movies

Because real-world time travel back and forth between the past and present is not (yet) possible, and the underlying science behind our working theories as to how it might one day be possible can be difficult to grasp, our ideas about it have largely been shaped by fictional depictions in books, television shows and movies like Avengers: Endgame.
