Reshoots tend to be a scary word for fans when it comes to Hollywood. People hear that word and immediately associate it with major issues with the film (see: the Josh Trank/Fox Fantastic Four debacle). But, reshoots are actually very commonplace for movies. Whether its audio issues, film degeneration, awkward angles in editing, or other basic issues, reshoots do not automatically mean there’s an issue with the movie. So, this current statement from one of the stars of arguably the most anticipated film of all time, Avengers: Endgame, shouldn’t have fans worried one bit.
While speaking with Empire Magazine, Karen Gillan (Nebula) spoke about the reshoots for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 3 Finale.
“My last day was two weeks ago. They keep doing reshoots. We call it “The Infinity Movie”. It just never ends. I think we’re going to be at the premiere and they’re going to be playing it and we’ll act out the last scene live, because they won’t have finished it.”
This film is a unique one, in so many ways. Fans shouldn’t be worried about these reshoots, as they are not only trying to give us the best film possible, but they are also shooting multiple scenes to keep the film a secret from even it’s stars. We have gotten word that the final edit is locked down, so these last reshoots were most likely pick up shots or redos for a better look at a scene.
One thing we do know is that Marvel and the Russos will do their very best to give us the closest thing to cinematic perfection that is possible. The “Infinity Saga” will have its proper resolution, over a decade in the making.
