Chris Evans accidentally spoiled Avengers: Endgame for co-star

Chris Evans filmed a video of his Marvel castmates dancing to “We Go Together” from Grease while on the set of Captain America: Civil War.

Speaking to his Avengers co-star Paul Rudd for Variety, Evans revealed the existence of the video, which was filmed the first day the pair met while shooting Civil War in 2015.

“It was literally the day I met you and [Anthony] Mackie and I and Scarlett [Johansson] got in our head that we were going to shoot – this is so hilarious – a little video just for the Marvel gang, like a little culmination, like a yearbook video, set to that song from Grease, ‘We go together, like rama lama’, whatever that song is,” Evans said.

“We were just going to go around, take little clips of videos of people dancing and cut it all together. The first day I was like, ‘Alright, I’ll start collecting some of this footage.’ I have the footage.”

Reminiscing with Rudd, who plays Ant-Man in the superhero franchise, Evans continued: “I was like, ‘Hi, nice to meet you. You don’t know me, but can I get this?’ It was you, Mackie, I think [Jeremy] Renner, Sebastian [Stan], and I just said, ‘Look, everyone, just dance for 30 seconds,’ and you did it.

“You were a great sport. You willingly danced with little explanation from me, and then I never completed the video. I just abandoned it. But I got that footage of our first day of meeting, of you dancing.”

Laughing, Rudd admitted: “Wow, I must’ve blocked it out, I don’t remember it at all. But I had to dance, there’s no way I’m not going to dance. You feel like you’re the new kid in school, the popular kid says, ‘Do this.’”

Despite saying that the video was “way too embarrassing” to be shown, Evans suggested that he might share the clip on Twitter or use it in another project in the future.
