If you wanted to get the goss on the latest Avengers quest, Endgame, Kevin Feige is your man.

As the head of Marvel Studios he also served as a producer on the latest epic which saw the Avengers finally down the mighty Thanos.

We lost some buddies along the way, in the form of Black Widow and Iron Man, but we got a downright zesty appreciation for all that goes on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Now with the balance of a few months behind us since its April release, Kevin himself sat down for a special Endgame podcast with Chris Hewitt of Empire magazine and we were blessed to listen to the man who knows all.

So what did we learn?

Quite a lot actually.

Youd think for a man that talks about Avengers and Endgame nearly on the daily hed be done with the stories – but from elaborating further on Captain Americas near decapitation at the sword of Thanos to Robert Downey Jrs final scene as Iron Man, weve got a lot of Endgame secrets to see us through to phase four.

Endgame was devised at the same time as Infinity War during a Marvel retreat:

Kevin revealed Marvel writers and producers headed away for a retreat where they map out the next films in the saga to get away from the phones and focus on the creative stories.

We were on our third retreat perhaps five or more years ago when we started talking about what would become Infinity War and Endgame and how do we pay off this purple guy… Kevin said in London last week.

It was on that retreat we thought about doing two movies at the same time.

Avengers actors worked for 200 days straight filming the two movies:

Kevin revealed the studio thought it would be brilliant to save money to film the two movies at the same time. But when it became clear that just wasnt going to work, they decided to film them back to back with a short break in between.

What that meant though was, according to him, the stars filmed for almost 200 days straight.

We have a lot of actors in this movie and a lot of busy actors, a lot of famous actors who star in their own movies whenever they want to so we needed to declare this time for these two movies so [they were available]. I dont know when wed be able to bring them together again, he explained.

Tony Starks funeral scene was code-named the wedding:

To keep everyone off the scent, one of the final scenes of the movie, being Tony Starks funeral was code-named the wedding.

Kevin said: I still to this day call it the wedding scene as a code word.

It was shot in October of 17, no maybe 16, when we released a 10th-anniversary photo and it was shot the day before that. Thats why we did that photo then as we had everyone there.

It was astounding having all those actors there. In the movie, its very solemn, on the day it was just insane.

Both Tom Holland and Gwyneth Paltrow dont know their co-stars:

Kevin continued of the funeral scene: All these cast members together, Tom Holland saying “is that Michelle Pfeiffer, is Michelle Pfeiffer in this?”

Gwyneth Paltrow asking why Sam Jackson was there, the other actors saying “what are you talking about? Hes Nick Fury, youve been in movies with him”.

Kevin Feige was hiding in the cabin during the final scene – but didnt want to do a Hitchcockian cameo:

[Before shooting a scene] you do last looks when the hair teams and makeup teams come in and do the final touches, Kevin said as he painted the scene.

You have a scene with two or three people that means about eight or nine people come in. I swear to you, I was on the balcony of that house, I was in that shot, right inside the cabin was video village…so I was up there as theyre getting ready.

They call last looks, Im not kidding the ground started shaking and in came hundreds of hair and makeup people to deal with all these megastars.

It was all about Fury coming up there on that balcony at the end of that shot. I guess we did joke [about a cameo], but no one stuck their head out the window.

Doctor Stranges Portals didnt bring the Avengers back from the Snap, just from another place to the battle:

We wanted to do them in Doctor Strange, once its in the MCU it goes into the toolbox. Thats how it came back, Kevin said. How are we going to get people back from this world and this world, oh theyll just portal back.

How he keeps Tom Holland from spoiling things:

Tom doesnt spoil EVERYTHING (Picture: Rex Features)

The truth is Tom Holland is amazing and has kept a lot of secrets. I think about the two millionth time it came up at how bad he is, he came up to me and said, “you know what I do keep a lot of secrets”. [I said] “I know, but its a fun thing.”

Then hell go spoil something else.

We did not take any special measures for Tom or Mark Ruffalo who lets his phone record at all times in all places. But theyre also so lovely you cant get that upset with them.

Emmerdale spoilers: Ryan Hawley reveals all on Robert Sugdens exit

Robert Sugden hasnt had an easy couple of months in Emmerdale — what with him having been charged for GBH with intent for brutally assaulting Victoria Bartons (Isabel Hodgins) rapist Lee — but things are set to get much worse for the beloved character before his on-screen exit arrives, and actor Ryan Hawley has all the gossip on Roberts exit.

Robert was livid when he first learned about what had happened to Victoria, and thus he set out to seek revenge on her behalf — in spite of her consistently asking him not to. After multiple failed attempts to get justice for what Lee did, Robert lost control and picked up a shovel, before hitting the rapist on the back of the head — and he was charged for the crime as a result.

He ended up pleading guilty so that he could save Victoria having to lie on his behalf in court, and since then hes been enjoying the free time hes got left with husband Aaron (Danny Miller). On Roberts current state of mind, Ryan said: Hes waiting for the inevitable.He is however, optimistic that it is going to only be a short amount of time that hes going to be away for.

I believe, worst case scenario – only a couple of years. He is quite confident in the fact that he has pled guilty so sentencing will be a bit more lenient.

Roberts circumstances are set to worsen in the coming episodes, as he learns that Lee has passed away in hospital. The ramifications that the rapists death will have on his prison sentence is the main cause of concern, as its now incredibly likely that hell be charged with murder for what he did to the young man.

Robert understandably struggles to process this information, but Liv (Isobel Steele) offers up a solution, when she suggests that he and Aaron go on the run together.

Ryan said: The news has just been broken to them so they havent really got a plan, they are going to have to take it as it comes. It means some very emotional goodbyes to some people in the village, but they have to be quick and there are some people they dont even get the chance to because Read More – Source

Holby City review with spoilers: Ric opts for the risky surgery after Darla decides to keep the baby

Ric considers his options (Picture: BBC)

First the good news on tonights Holby City – Ric Griffin (Hugh Quarshie)s brain tumour is benign. Unfortunately the bad news is very bad indeed. The tumour is huge, which makes surgery to remove it extremely difficult, according to Ric. The risks are very high that he could have a stroke or not survive the surgery at all. Leaving the tumour where it is could be an option, but it will probably keep on growing and compress his brain, leading to more mood swings, more forgetfulness and worse. His days as a surgeon would definitely be over very soon.

Because he had Darla (Naomi Katiyo) to worry about, he decided that he wouldnt risk the surgery and would try to manage the symptoms of the tumour with drugs. He also decided not to worry Darla by telling her about his diagnosis.

Everything changed when Darla was visited by Peter (Jordan Adene), the father of her baby, who proved to be a very mature, supportive and sensible 15 year old. Donna (Jaye Jacobs) had already detected in Darla signs of doubt that she wanted to go through with having her baby adopted and Peters arrival cemented her decision – she wanted to keep her daughter. Peter said hed get a job and theyd manage.

Ric was on board with this plan because hes always wanted whatever makes Darla happy. Then Peters father (Daniel Adegboyega), an elder of the church, arrived and kicked off a bit. He accused Darla of trying to trap his son and said the baby might not even be Peters. There was a bit of a tussle as he tried to take Peter away and Ric ended up being thrown to the ground and knocked unconscious.

Ric wasnt seriously hurt, but as everyone clustered around his bedside Cameron (Nic Jackman) said something about his serious condition in front of Darla, so Ric had no option but to tell her the truth. Peter proved that hes a keeper by smoothing things out with Darlas dad, so Darla is going to move back in with Kofi and bring up the baby, after making Ric promise that he has to do whats best for him and not delay the surgery just for her sake. And theyre naming the baby Erica, after her great-granddad – which made him fill up. She wouldnt be here now if it werent for you, Darla said. And Cameron, he reminded her, But Ericas a better name.

Ric apologised to Zav (Marcus Griffiths) and Donna for his recent behaviour and told them hes going to go for the surgery, because he wants to carry on being a surgeon himself if theres even a slim chance.

Meanwhile a small bunch of supporting artists had assembled to give Essie (Kaye Wragg) a party to welcome her new adopted baby. This was mainly a plot device so one of the cards would be found later on by Connor (Calum Lill) – Islas father. Hed come to the hospital to get Frankies phone number from Essie but he soon worked out that Essie is pretending that Isla is her legally adopted daughter. Sacha (Bob Barrett) tried to help Essie out by warning Connor off but only succeeded in making the situation worse. Essie finally resorted to good old faRead More – Source
