‘Avengers: Endgame’ Press Conference Honors the Characters Killed by Thanos

There are less than three weeks left until Marvel Cinematic Universe fans are finally treated to Avengers: Endgame on the big screen. The closer the release date comes, the more the film's cast is seen doing press for the film, which has the Internet abuzz with chatter about their favorite actors. Today, the cast is in Los Angeles for a press conference hosted by Iron Man director and Happy Hogan portrayer, Jon Favreau. The event ended up paying homage to those who died in Avengers: Infinity War in a hilarious/devastating way.

As you can see, the stage was left with plenty of empty seats to "honor" those who didn't survive.

"Please welcome the cast of Avengers: Endgame," Favreau says as the curtain falls to reveal a half-empty stage. "Well, clearly things look a little different in a post Infinity War Marvel Cinematic Universe. Post Snap, there's a few empty seats."

The panel included Karen Gillan (Nebula), Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Don Cheadle (James Rhodes/War Machine), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye/Ronin), Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk), directors Anthony and Joe Russo, and Marvel Studio Present Kevin Feige.

Many fans took to Twitter to comment on the tribute to the fallen.

"I like their dedication to this," @Megatran_ wrote.

"Really milking that all the way to the end aren't they," @awards_watch joked.

"Twist the knife even more, @MarvelStudios," @indigo_15 added.
