Chris Evans revealed in a recent interview that he spoiled a pivotal moment in Avengers: Endgame for his co-star Anthony Mackie.
Evans appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his upcoming film Knives Out. Fallon asked the Captain America star whether his co-star Anthony Mackie know he was going to get the Captain America shield at the end of the movie.
The 38-year-old confessed to the host that he actually spoiled that important twist for Mackie who played Falcon in the Marvel movies.
He revealed, “While we were filming in Atlanta, I had a few people over to watch football or something, and Mackie was the first one to show up. I didn’t know he didn’t know what was going to happen. I say, ‘Hey, man, isn’t that scene fantastic?’ He said, ‘What scene?’ And I said, ‘The scene where I give you the shield!’ And he said, ‘You’re giving me the shield? Then I said ‘Oh no.'”
Adding further, “So I ran to my room and I got the scene and gave it to him, and I got to watch him read the scene for the first time where he’s getting the shield. And he was so happy and you immediately feel like, ‘Man, maybe I robbed this moment, maybe Kevin Feige deserved this.’
However, Evans stated that “it was so nice to share it with him.” Also adding, “He was so happy and so deserving. It was a nice way to have — just between us — the transition of characters.”
Furthermore, back in May Mackie also revealed in an interview with IMDB how he found out about the emotional ending of Endgame.
He said, “We were at his [Chris Evans] house and he goes, ‘You excited?’ And I go, ‘What are you talking about?’ and he goes, ‘You don’t know?’ He jumps up, runs out of the room and comes back in with the script.”
Mackie also admitted, “We cried. We drank. We laughed. I am very happy I got that moment with Chris, for him to not only pass me the shield but to tell me it was happening.”
