Due to the 5-year time jump seen in the Avengers: Endgame fans could not watch on big screen some key moments of the members of the Avengers’ personal life including the marriage of Tony Stark and Pepper Potts.
As revealed by screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, a little in line with the motto of the film “the end is part of the journey”, the important thing was to show Tony’s new life once (temporarily) set aside his Iron Man armor.
“We wanted to see the long-term effects. I don’t think it was necessary to show Pepper Potts’ proposal, marriage, and pregnancy. What we wanted to see was a united family that works as a whole,” Markus explained during an interview with Backstory Magazine (via Comicbook.com).
“We wanted to see the world destroyed by the losses caused by the snap,” continued Markus. “The time jump has allowed us to get to the bottom of the matter very quickly. We couldn’t have gone any further, because when it otherwise becomes a situation where you have to age everyone with the CG.”
Kevin Feige is probably also in agreement with the writers, given that he recently revealed that nothing would change for Endgame: the president of Marvel Studios said he was 100% satisfied with the film directed by the Russo brothers.
