The process of filming anything in the MCU is generally confidentially. The actors weren’t supposed to take any photos or videos on-set while filming for Avengers: Endgame. Thankfully, a couple of them didn’t listen – which is why the internet was treated to a couple of behind-the-scenes clips of the cast during the filming.
The first one was posted by Chris Pratt, who remarked that it would be a waste if he didn’t take this “once in a lifetime opportunity to capture this collection of stars, a group that likely will never be in the same room again”.

I remember being blown away in this moment on the @avengers set. Nobody was allowed to film anything on their phones. I said screw it. No rule was going to stop me from seizing this once in a lifetime opportunity to capture this collection of stars, a groupthat likely will never be in the same room again. We are so blessed.
Clearly, he wasn’t the only cast member with this line of thinking, because Chris Evans started uploading videos from the set soon after.
Just yesterday, we even got a deleted scene from the movie! It’s a scene of Spider-Man (Tom Holland) reuniting with Iron Man (Robert Downey Junior) after meeting on the battlefield. While this was kept in the movie itself, this deleted scene was more intimate: with Tony being affectionate enough to give Peter a peck on the cheek.
It’s not all just clips of while the movie was being filmed, either. Here’s a picture of the OG Avengers, minus Scarlett:
Here’s another cute clip of the cast of the MCU singing “Happy Birthday” to commemorate the 11th anniversary of the first movie in the MCU, Iron Man.
To top it all off, here’s a clip that Chris Hemsworth posted of the cast having a Mexican-themed lunch that RDJ hosted.
The cast lunch was held on a day where Scarlett Johansson wasn’t on set, which is why there was this video of the cast (jokingly) mocking her for missing out:
These clips are adorable, and really show off how close the MCU cast have become over the years. It’s a shame that we’ll likely never see a star-studded collaboration of this level again, since a couple of the heroes have had their stories closed with Endgame.
