In honor of Black Panther’s Golden Globe nomination, Marvel president Kevin Feige attended the ceremony Sunday night where he was briefly interviewed by MTV News’ Josh Horowitz. The interview was brief but that didn’t stop Feige from dropping some very interesting nuggets of information about Avengers: Endgame, including when exactly the title was chosen.
There have been plenty of theories about the Avengers: Endgame title and how it plays into the overarching plot of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Given the sordid road we took for the title to be unveiled, it was easy to think that Marvel chose the title at the last second so as to avoid spoilers, but that is not the case.
Answering one of Horowitz’s questions, Feige revealed that they had decided on the title well before the movie entered production. Making matters more interesting, Feige also confirmed that the “we’re in the endgame” line by Doctor Strange was a foreshadowing of the title. It was all done on purpose.
Since the movie has been in the works for four or five years, that means the Endgame title has been set in stone for a long time.
The second Avengers: Endgame question Horowitz was about the trailer and the footage we see in it. He posed the question as to whether it was all from the first 20 minutes of the movie, to which Feige said is “somewhat accurate” as it was a means to generate excitement without giving away “many, many, many, many” of the movie’s secrets.
Other topics the interview touched upon was how the final cut for Captain Marvel was coming along (still in the works with VFX and music) and which Fox Marvel property he was most excited to get his hands on, to which he answered safely answered, “All of them.”
