Avengers: Endgame's writers' 5 best movie endings
Exclusive interview with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely - their best movie endings revealed
If anyone knows how to do endings properly, it's Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. They have been the architect of five MCU movies - the Captain America arc, as well as Thor: Dark World - and were given the chance to tie up the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it, with Avengers: Endgame.
Endgame is the culmination of 21 Marvel movies and brings together as many superheroes - it's a fantastic achievement that's been given almost unanimous rave reviews and is the biggest movie at the box office ever (sorry, Avatar).
So, how did they do it?
"The watch word for us, was to never take our eye off the people in the story. Even in a movie that’s this large, this expensive, with this many things flying around, it is about the characters," says Markus, when we caught up with both him and McFeely during their BAFTA screenings of Avengers: Endgame.
