It’s no secret that not even the cast of Avengers: Endgame fully knows what happens in the upcoming film. The actors have let on that they are just as much in the dark as we are, making recent interviews with the stars pretty tough to conduct.

Not only is Marvel fooling fans by giving us scenes in trailers that might not even happen, but they’re also fooling their cast, because apparently they’ve filmed dummy scenes and not everyone was given a full script.

Knowing that getting any real details about Endgame is virtually impossible, some interviewers have given up asking much about the new film altogether and have instead asked about 2018's Avengers: Infinity War. That was the case when Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo revealed to Yahoo! that he filmed a scene for the 2018 film where he lived, and one where he died.

“I didn’t know until I saw the movie,” Ruffalo said of his character’s fate in Infinity War. “For one take, I did disappear, and then the other one I didn’t.”

Considering that Ruffalo, along with fellow Avenger Tom Holland, is known for accidentally dropping spoilers, it would make sense that the Russo brothers would leave him wondering what happened to his character.

“It’s like Survivor," Ruffalo said, noting that he was pretty sure he was going to be turned to dust like so many of his co-stars. "It’s like: Who’s gonna get kicked off the island? And I probably should’ve ... It’s like Project Runway for leakers.”

We can’t wait to find out how Hulk and the remaining heroes will avenge their fallen brothers and sisters when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26.

Isaac Hempstead Wright Explains Bran Stark's Intense Staring in Game of Thrones

There's always been something off with Brandon Stark's empty stare that we see so often in Game of Thrones. This week, actor Isaac Hempstead Wright explained exactly how he pulls it off.

The 20-year-old went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and shared a few of his experiences from working on the show, including accidentally dropping a spoiler in his math class and the interesting sex ed talk he was forced to have with his mom given his tender age when he began filming the show.

He also talked about his "intense stare"—and his preparation for the role may not be as deep as you think.

"I'm kind of getting good at this sort of intense stare," the star began. "But it's actually aided by the fact that I'm completely blind when I'm on set. I don't have my glasses, and I don't have contact lenses."

"How thick are the glasses?" Kimmel asks him, to which Hempstead Wright replies, "They're not that thick, but I need them to see."

He recalled another time when his vision problems aided his character. In season 7, while filming a scene with Sophie Turner (a.k.a. Sansa Stark), he recalled Turner making a comment along the lines of "Isaac, your stare is like—you're staring into my soul!" to which the actor replied "I can't see you!"

Actors—they're just like us.

Richard Madden Shared a Hilarious Throwback Photo With Game of Thrones Co-Stars Kit Harington and Alfie Allen

Richard Madden may not have held the title of King in the North for long on Game of Thrones, but his memories of his time on the series—and the lasting friendships he forged—live on. Madden, who played Robb Stark, was famously killed off in season 3’s penultimate episode, “The Rains of Castamere” (a.k.a. The Red Wedding episode). But he has continued to champion the series, and his former colleagues, in the years since his premature demise. People spotted his latest tribute to his Game of Thrones days: a #TBT Instagram post that serves as a stark (no pun intended) reminder of just how long we’ve all been watching the epic HBO series.

The image features Madden with co-stars Kit Harington and Alfie Allen—each of whom is almost recognizable—after taking a ride on the Wheel of Belfast following their first read-through of Game of Thrones’s pilot episode. Which means that Madden’s caption that the photo is about 10 years old is pretty spot-on; the original pilot episode filmed in Northern Ireland in 2009, which would make all three of the actors about 22 years old at the time.

The show's actors have remained tight even after Madden’s brutal on-screen murder. In June 2018, Madden was a guest at Harington and fellow Game of Thrones co-star Rose Leslie’s wedding. Just a few months later, the 32-year-old actor—who won a Golden Globe earlier this year for his Netflix series The Bodyguard—was there to support his on-screen little sister Maisie Williams when she made her stage debut in I and You at London’s Hampstead Theatre. Which means that Madden might know more than any of us do in terms of how Game of Thrones will end, and could have been on to something when he predicted that ultimately, "[I]t’s just going to be three dragons flying around and everyone else is dead.” Hey, it could happen!
