Josh Brolin, Karen Gillan, Paul Rudd, Dania Gurira, And Scarlett Johansson Talk AVENGERS: ENDGAME

Several Avengers: Endgame cast members have opened up about the movie, and we have fresh intel on reshoots, what comes next for Black Widow, and a movie now billed as an "unprecedented cinematic event."

Avengers: Endgame is fast approaching, and now Empire Magazine has released its latest issue which puts the focus on the Marvel Studios movie. While we've already broken down some reveals from that, we've now selected some highlights from the publication's interviews with a number of cast members.

They include: Josh Brolin (Thanos), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man), Dania Gurira (Okoye), And Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow). 

While the actors had to choose their words carefully, there are some interesting reveals here, including Gillan's remarks about extensive reshoots, Johansson talking about seeing footage from the movie, and Rudd's experience after finally being given the opportunity to join the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in an actual Avengers movie. 

To check out these highlights, click the "View List" button below and be sure to pick up the magazine when it goes on sale a little later this week in the UK. 

Josh Brolin (Thanos)



On His Reaction To Infinity War's Ending:

I'm at the premiere, watching the movie. Everybody starts disintegrating. I go, 'What the f**k?' I look over at Hemsworth and he does a cutthroat motion, like, 'You're going to be the most hated person on this planet.'

On What "Sort Of Farmer" Thanos Will Be In Endgame:

Corn. Corn, for sure. The Second movie is more about corn than anything. Ultimately like beans, but it starts with corn.

On What He Knows About The Sequel:

You don't know what the movie's about. I don't f***in' know what the movie's about! It may just be him Colonel Kurtzing it, watching the corn grow. 
 

Karen Gillan (Nebula)



On When She Learned She Would Survive The Snap:

I probably found out quite early on - before the shooting of the first, maybe, because of scheduling stuff. I was really excited. I definitely want Nebula to have the cathartic experience she deserves with her father.

On How She Would Feel If This Was Her Last Time Playing Nebula:

I think I would be really sad to say goodbye. I've loved her from the moment I auditioned for her. She's evolved from a villain to someone we've developed empathy towards. I think she's going to be a character we're all rooting for. 

On Her Last Day:

My last day was two weeks ago. They keep doing reshoots. We call it 'The Infinity Movie.' It just never ends. I think we're going to be at the premiere and they're going to be playing it and we'll act the last scene live, because they won't have finished it.
 

Paul Rudd (Ant-Man)



On What He Can Say About Endgame:

Nothing! I can say nothing.

On What It Was Like To Be In An Avengers Movie:

It's exciting to be part of the thing, to be a part of something that so many people are interested in and see. It's compounded by the surreal vibe of the whole thing. I am a part of something that I have watched as a fan. The only thing I've ever experienced that is even somewhat comparable is working on Friends in season 9 where this thing was a juggernaut. Then I show up and I'm a very small part of it. Now it's the same thing - I'm a very small part, but existing in something huge. It's very exciting. 
 

Danai Gurira (Okoye)



On When She Learned About Her MCU Future:

It was during Black Panther we were approached about Infinity War. That's when I realised I was part of this amazing universe, beyond the world we created in Wakanda. 

On Being Part Of Infinity War's Final Battle:

It's pretty incredible storytelling to end a major movie with all the characters in that way. It was intense. 

On What She Can Say About Endgame:

It's going to be astounding. It's going to be an unprecedented cinematic event. You're not going to be ready. That's what I can tell you. 
 

Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow)



On Whether She's Seen Anything From Endgame:

I have. From what I can tell, what's foremost in the [Russo] Brother' minds is really delivering something that is a poetic and beautiful Valentine to a decade of madness. 

On What She Can Say About Black Widow's Role:

Nat is a very pragmatic person. She's looking for answers. She was trained, and born and bred to finish the job. When we find her, she's f***ing pissed off. The one thing we know about Natasha is that she's going to hunker down and she's going to get those mother[frick]ers. That's her MO. 

On Infinity War's Shocking Ending:

It just shook me. There was a lot of stuff I had not been able to see, and to see it all, the majesty of it, it's so epic. It really felt almost Biblical in a way.
