Endgame BTS Photo Assembles the Original Avengers (Plus Loki)

Avengers 2012

In a new behind the scenes photo, the directors of Avengers: Endgame, provided a nostalgic look at the core team of heroes that launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Joe and Anthony Russo appear one on each end of the posed group shot, with the actors who played the six original Avengers between them in the costumes they wore in 2012's The Avengers. Also given a place of honor is Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki, the occasionally heroic figure who was the team's first major villain.

All of the actors are in costumes identical to the ones they wore in the earlier film, with the exception of Mark Ruffalo, who's dressed in a suit designed for the motion capture required for him to play the computer-generated Hulk.

The only comment accompanying the image is "The OG's...", meaning "Original Gangsters" or the "Original Gang."  Since the arcs of several of the characters was finished in Endgame, it's likely that this photo will be one of the last taken on set of all of them together for the foreseeable future.
