Marvel Sure Doesn’t Care That We Know About These Avengers: Endgame Reshoots

Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy

***Potential spoilers for Avengers: Endgame***

Marvel sure is being pretty free with the rumors of new reshoots for Avengers: Endgame, which means they’re planning to crush our hearts in new and unexpected ways with this movie.

We know that we can often expect spoilers from Tom Holland, Mark Ruffalo, or Sebastian Stan. The three are infamous in the Marvel Cinematic Universe fandom for telling us things they probably shouldn’t. To the point where now, they do it as jokey bits and it has kind of taken the fun out of it.

That being said, Marvel is still extremely secretive about what they share with the public before one of their films is released. Remember when they filmed a ton of extra footage for Avengers: Infinity War so that no one would really know how it was going to end? So why are they so open about who is currently doing reshoots for Avengers: Endgame—especially with characters that are supposed to be super-dead, not just dusted? There’s no way they aren’t involved in something as big as Zoe Saldana publically announcing that she’s been back as Gamora.

My personal theory is simple: We’re going to see the Avengers who vanished in the snap or died throughout the duration in the film as a ploy that Thanos uses against the Avengers who are still alive. Which is evil, even for Thanos. Bringing their images to life using the Reality Stone to show the remaining Avengers what they lost? Using Gamora to get back at Nebula?

This is my explanation as to why Marvel is letting us see that Zoe Saldana did reshoots.

Hair up! What goes on, must come off! Adios Gamora… for now at least! Ha @makeupbyvera7 @fxrtst @avengers @trolls

Or maybe I’m thinking too hard into this. Maybe it is simple! We know that Thanos had a flashback to baby Gamora after the snap and maybe his conscious is now Gamora. Since he killed her to obtain the Soul Stone, maybe she can sway him, come to him in visions and talk to him. Or, since Karen Gillan was doing reshoots (and Marvel let her say so on Twitter), maybe this is a flashback with the whole family.

Theories are still floating around as to how the snapped Avengers will return to the franchise or if they even come back to this reality (I still think we might just be seeing Peter Parker and the others in an alternate timeline, it is a comic book franchise after all). That being said, it is still interesting to note that Marvel is giving us a lot more information than they did for Avengers: Infinity War, so maybe this is all smoke and mirrors to make us think we know what’s going on when we have no idea what pain Marvel has in store for us.
