Marvel is known for their secret-keeping methods, and that included keeping the “Avengers: Infinity War” cast in the dark about certain moments until they were filming.
Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany attended Ace Comic Con in Seattle in June and spoke with filmmaker Kevin Smith about Marvel’s restrictions.
Elizabeth told Smith that she had no idea what the film’s ending was until the day they shot it.
“I found out from the Russos [directors Joe and Anthony] exactly what was going to happen and it wasn’t until we shot it on that day we learned what the ending was,” she said. “They took us into a van — all of us — we were in a van with air conditioning because it was very hot and they told us how the movie was going to end and no one knew. And they were like ‘Now we’re shooting it, Go!’ and we were like ‘How are we supposed to interpret that?'”
Back in April, Elizabeth told Jimmy Kimmel that she had the option to read a script but declined because of the strict rules.
“They offered a room to sit in and read off an iPad for five hours in a room without anything else around you,” Olsen said on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live”. “That sounds unpleasant, so I just said, ‘Can you tell me what goes on and just give me my pages?'”
