The romance was scrapped
During an episode of Empire's podcast, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely explained that they actually wrote scenes between Banner and Romanoff and shot them for
Avengers: Infinity War but ultimately decided to abandon the idea
McFeely noted: "We certainly tried to. In
Infinity War we have scenes … wrote 'em, shot' em … of them kind of hashing that out … It was 'You've been gone, I've moved on' – that sort of stuff. "
He continued," But it became very clear that, if a scene was not in the 'A-plot,' it would NOT survive to the end of Infinity War … That thing had to be on rails just to get to the finish line. "
Endgame Markus and McFeely shared why the two characters barely interacted with McFeely sharing," He was smart Hulk in this movie and it seems a bit odd, in the midst of everyone's mourning and his change to a 2000-pound genius, go, 'and they're dating!' "
He added," We thought it would be more elegant not to address that. "
Avengers: Endgame spoiler free was so important
Directors of the Russo Brothers recently explained why they were so intent on keeping all spoilers out of the media about
Avengers: Endgame .
They shared why the
Endgame spoiler ban was so important to them after the movie was released in theaters, with Joe Russo noting:
"This is the environment we live in now. We can not control the internet. It's its own monster. "
Anthony Russo added:" We certainly respect you, we are sure to respect that, the idea that when you see a movie, you want to discuss it, you want to talk about it, you want to share your experience. And that's a really important part of the process. "
They've even had to give a notoriously loose-lipped Mark Ruffalo and a dummy script to keep him from sharing any spoilers
