It's unfathomable to believe that a year ago, millions were hoarding to theatres near their houses to witness the cinematic spectacle that was Avengers: Endgame. For the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) fans, who have been there from the beginning with Iron Man, got to witness the end of a beautiful decade-long era with the Russo Brothers' three-hour-long directorial which felt like the perfect swan song for the OG 6 Avengers (Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye).

As April 26, 2020, marked the one-year anniversary of Avengers: Endgame, Anthony and Joe Russo hosted a watch party with fans and tweeted some special behind-the-scenes anecdotes from the sets of Avengers: Endgame. They also hosted an Instagram Live session which included a surprise appearance by Robert Downey Jr. as well! Amongst the tweets that had us in a state of emotional unrest was RDJ and Chris Evans' last day on set as Iron Man and Captain America. Sharing the BTS from their last days, we see the two MCU actors hug the team as they shoot their final scene. For Robert, in particular, it was the goosebumps-inducing "I am Iron Man," sequence!

Moreover, on a lighter note, the filmmakers also shared a funny video of Chris in the older Steve Rogers avatar, along with Anthony Mackie, as he proved he isn't "that old!"

Check out Russo Brothers' tweets to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Avengers: Endgame's release date below:

Russo Brothers tweeted for RDJ, "Downey’s last day on set after shooting the “I am Iron Man” moment. The very definition of a legend. We love this man 3000.  @RobertDowneyJr #AvengersAssemble," and for Chris, "This is from @ChrisEvans’s last day of playing Captain America, ever. Much love and respect to you sir. What an amazing run. #AvengersAssemble."

"See...he’s not that old...@ChrisEvans #AvengersAssemble," the Russo Brothers further quipped.

Will we ever get over Avengers: Endgame? Hell No!

There is no doubt that civil war was more of an Avengers 2.5 movie than Captain America movie. It would be lovely to watch another cap movie before mcu phase 4 but ultimately it will be the decision of Cap aka Chris Evans and MCU and we fans can only support their decision although everyone would love to watch young cap (Chris Evans) with all of his powers back after living his life with Peggy Carter and leading the other Avengers and continue saving the world from evil. But we all fans are also so happy for cap living with his love and finally able to do the dance with her.
