Marvel Studios has shared a new behind-the-scenes photo from one of the biggest, most iconic moments in Avengers: Endgame. During the final battle, Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) has to get the Nano Gauntlet to the quantum tunnel inside the X-Con Security Consultants van.
The only problem is that there’s an entire army between Danvers and the van. Captain Marvel might be powerful enough to make it on her own, but we don’t have to worry about that because she’s got help.
In a moment that’s been drawing loud cheers in theaters for weeks, Captain Marvel is quickly joined by several female heroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was instantly iconic. Those on set clearly knew what it would mean for the present and future of the MCU and documented it accordingly.
Pictured in the photo (from left to right) are executive producer Trinh Tran, director Anthony Russo, Danai Gurira (Okoye), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch), Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts/Rescue), Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), Evangeline Lilly (Hope van Dyne/The Wasp), Letitia Wright (Shuri), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Karen Gillan (Nebula), and director Joe Russo.
Hopefully, Marvel Studios continues to observe the significance of this moment with an entire film teaming up the MCU’s female heroes.
