Yesterday, Avengers: Endgame premiered in Los Angeles and it brought together almost every known face from across 22 movies of the Infinity Saga. And assuming that it would be the end of the road for a few characters, people got emotional.
Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk spoke to the crowd after the 3-hour screening of the film and said:
It’s been an amazing ride and so moving, I love all of you guys so much. It’s been the trip of a lifetime, and what you did up there tonight was so beautiful. My brother and sister Avengers, I love you so much.
One of the founding Avengers, Chris Evans also told the people that he cried about 6 times during the film!
I have a lot of my friends and family here tonight, and a lot of them are right up here. We have this bond that transcends what we do for a living … I cried like six times.
Actress Scarlett Johansson, who is effectively the first female superhero of our generation and has played the multi-layered character of Black Widow for a decade also thanked the ‘beautiful and open-minded’ people she got to work with.
Meanwhile, our own Hawkeye, Jeremy Renner thanked the people and expressed his love for Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo.
Chris Hemsworth also got emotional at the end of this long and beautiful journey and thanked his castmates for being there and gave a shoutout to his brothers- Luke and Liam and his sister-in-law Miley Cyrus.
