The 'Avengers: Endgame' movie has been more than just a closing chapter to the epic series. It is an emotional roller coaster ride that left fans teary-eyed and shouting how we all love them '3000'.
However, what we watched was the final product of the blood, sweat and tears of the entire cast and crew, so one can only imagine the enduring power of the people who gave it their all, especially the Russo brothers.
Now, while we shed tears of horror and sadness when Tony Stark left us, and Black Widow making the ultimate sacrifice, Joe Russo has a different version of what made him cry his heart out.
It is the opening scene in the movie, where Hawkeye is with this family, having fun, when they all suddenly disintegrate, a result of Thanos' snap, and he helplessly looks around for them.
In a recent interview, Joe Russo spoke about how his sentimental meter shot to the sky when he directed the heartbreaking scene. “I've got four kids, and it's a very tragic scene to open the movie with. It's one of the few scenes in the movie that actually makes me tear up when I watch it because I think about my own family . . . And then you think about what would happen to you, as a father. You'd become very self-destructive.”
Thankfully, the sadness comes to an end when he is finally reunited with his family towards the end, but as a director and a father, Joe Russo related to this scene like every dad out there probably did.
