In the three hours runtime of the movie, Avengers: Endgame the film had shown us Captain America wielding the Mjolnir to Tony Stark’s “I am Iron Man” and Sam’s callback to The Winter Soldier. One more iconic moment had been in the final battle against Thanos.
Spider-Man finally gets the Gauntlet and then we see the A-Force step in, and this resulted in one of the MCU’s most amazing Marvel moments ever. The writers of Avengers: Endgame, Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus had spoken to Variety and explained why they included this shot:
“Marvel fans, increasingly, with every movie, [have] gotten these great female characters,” Markus had said.
“Some people can call it pandering, but it’s also like we have tons of shots of all men. Why not have a shot of all women and they’re so cool? It just seemed like ‘Let’s celebrate it!'”
McFeely had also echoed this sentiment and had revealed the most moving part was seeing the whole crew care so much about this scene:
“I remember on the day we shot that, every woman on the crew and in the offices came down and were sort of milling about behind the cameras,” McFeely had said.
“That was, perhaps, the most moving part of it for me, how important it was for everybody to see it.”
The shot had included every female MCU character that had been introduced in the MCU from the Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) to Gamora (Zoe Saldana) to Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and Captain Marvel (Brie Larson).
Avengers: Endgame is now showing in theaters.
