I remember being blown away in this moment on the @avengers set. Nobody was allowed to film anything on their phones. I said screw it. No rule was going to stop me from seizing this once in a lifetime opportunity to capture this collection of stars, a groupthat likely will never be in the same room again. We are so blessed.
Rest assured, this is a spoiler-free zone. Still, Chris Pratt chose to play with fire just a bit when he posted a totally off-limits behind-the-scenes video that shows quite a few Avengers assembling for a major scene.
Yep, Pratt—who plays superhero Peter Quill aka Star-Lord—shared the vid on Instagram, announcing midway through that it is “a really illegal video.”
Why? Per his caption, nobody was allowed to film anything on their phones on set. (Duh, this film was 11 years in the making—it makes sense.) But Pratt explains his antics: “I said screw it. No rule was going to stop me from seizing this once in a lifetime opportunity to capture this collection of stars, a group that likely will never be in the same room again.”
He’s got a point. Visible in the video, you’ll see everyone from Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), to Ant Man (Paul Rudd), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and even Thor (Chris Hemsworth).
The best part? When Captain America Evans realizes that his buddy Star-Lord is shooting said illegal clip. (His reaction is very Captain America...you know, calling out wrong-doing when he sees it.)
For background, Avengers: Endgame—the follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War—only opened this past Friday and has already grossed $1.2 billion worldwide in ticket sales.
As for Pratt? Keep the illegal BTS content coming, pretty please.
