Avengers: Endgame Press Is Getting Pretty Silly Since They Can’t Talk About the Movie
Well, press for Avengers: Endgame is off to the races, and already, they’re causing a ruckus—which, I guess, is to be expected. What else are they going to talk about on this press tour? A movie that they can’t spoil? The marketing is working off of scenes from just the first twenty minutes of the movie, CinemaCon only shared ten minutes of footage, and everything is very hush hush. So … it’s kind of hard to talk about a movie that you can’t talk about.
I have to give kudos those journalists interviewing the cast, though. At least they’re having fun with them since, again, what can you even bring up? So, they’ve all started to get a bit creative—like having the Avengers use their acting prowess to dramatically deliver the lyrics to Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road.”

Which continued with Mark Ruffalo serving what I’d describe as “crocodile hunter chic” but with a country twist.

That’d be enough to get us through the first round of interviews, but then the bonkers-town antics continued when they were asked who preferred Bearded Chris Evans to Clean Shaven Chris Evans.

We can’t expect anything less from our favorite heroes. Each time a new MCU movie comes out, we’re blessed with fun stories, the cast doing weird videos, and seeing our favorite stars together. The problem with this press tour is that my favorite two are missing (for obvious reasons).
Every time there’s a Captain America movie, we were get Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie paired together for press. You’d think they would have learned their lesson after the first round, but still, they were together for Avengers: Infinity War, a time filled with Mackie egging Stan on and derailing interviews nonstop.
So, in remembrance of my favorite two being interviewed together, please watch this video that gifted us with the infamous “Which way’s the beach, Sea Bass?” quote.
I personally hope that Avengers press continues to be this wild free-for-all, because what else are they going to give us? They can’t talk about the movie, are they just going to end up doing dubsmashes? Let the Avengers cast do Carpool Karaoke all in one giant limousine! Let it happen, James Corden!
