Spoiler alert—but hopefully you already know this if you decided to click!
Tony Stark finds himself completely overpowered by the infinity stones he gathers to snap Thanos away in the end of Avengers: Endgame, leading to one of the most emotional sequences in all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
-sounds of a nose blowing in the distance-
And while it looked like most of the cast was in this particular scene.. .you don’t even really have half of the picture.
Karen Gillan shared a photo on her Twitter that really illuminated how important that scene was for everybody involved in the franchise.
This photo not only proves that everybody who was depicted was included in the shot and nobody edited in later, but also gives fans a sense of the scope and magnitude of this franchise, and how many lives it has touched on the production side.
Whoa everyone was actually in the same place? I figured with that amount of A-listers and ongoing projects and schedules, half of it was greenscreen and stitched together or something. Wow. That's something else.

When you’re looking for Karen Gillian in the photo and can’t find her because you’re looking for a red head until you stupidly remember she is blue!

But one thing is for sure—with the end of Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, and Natalia Romanova’s storylines, the MCU will never quite be the same.
