Avengers: Endgame’s Emma Fuhrmann got in trouble on secretive movie set

A 17-year-old actress with a small role in Avengers: Endgame has revealed that security around the hotly-anticipated Marvel movie was so tight that she was reprimanded for posting a photo taken in the state where the film was being shot.

Emma Furhmann, from Dallas, Texas, was undoubtedly thrilled when she was cast in the final installment of the much-loved Marvel series – and was made well aware from the get-go that she would have to keep anything and everything about the movie completely under wraps. 

But when she posted a seemingly-innocent geo-tagged photo of a sunset upon her arrival on location in Atlanta, Georgia, she was stunned to see it turn into a major security issue – revealing to that the movie’s head of security turned up at her trailer to make her take the image down.  

Strict: Actress Emma Fuhrmann, 17, learned  first hand how tight security is while filming an Avengers movie 

‘The next day, [Marvel’s] head of security came to my trailer and talked to me about how I can’t post that,’ the brunette actress said.

‘I was like, ‘Well, I wasn’t going to say I was on set of you know, Endgame or anything,’ and they were like, ‘No, we understand, you’re not the first person we had to talk to about this today,” Emma, who played Scott Lang/Ant-Man’s daughter Cassie Lang in the movie, revealed.

The head of security added that his phone was ringing non-stop as people tried to suss out where the highly-anticipated movie, starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth, was being filmed. 

Emma said that the experience was a ‘wow’ moment (even if she was in ‘trouble’), making her realize the scale of the project she was working on. 

‘That was sort of just like a, ‘Okay, wow, this is real.’ It could not have gotten any realer, I really didn’t understand just how large Marvel was, and how much of an impact it had,’ she told the outlet.

The teenage star gave a glimpse into just how tightly-guarded the production is. 

‘I mean, Marvel is just such a machine. It is a well-oiled machine. I don’t think I’ve ever been on such a big set before. I mean, I showed up to set on my first day, I had gotten my scene, but I literally had no idea what had happened before, or after, or anything in between,’ she shared. 

When she received her script to learn her lines ahead of shooting, everything else had been blacked out. The first time Emma saw the movie in its entirety was at its premiere. 

Actor Mark Ruffalo, 51, is known for continuously inadvertently spoiling Marvel plots.

Mark, who plays Bruce Banner/Hulk, actually revealed a spoiler to Avengers: Endgame when he blurted out in an interview that Captain America ‘gets married in this’.

The movie’s directors, the Russo Brothers, jokingly fired him via Twitter when he revealed the top-secret project’s name to Jimmy Fallon before it was officially released.

Prior to the release of Thor: Ragnorok in 2017 he live streamed a portion of the film on Instagram. And that same year, he told an interviewer that ‘everybody dies’ ahead of Infinity War’s release. 

Earlier this year, actor Dave Bautista landed himself in hot water when he let slip that he was filming a role in the fourth Avengers movie. 

The 50-year-old former professional wrestler, who plays Drax in the series, also said that as scenes are shot out of sequence and actors are not privy to the full script, it’s virtually impossible to know what the fate of their characters is – or what scenes will make it into what movie. 

‘I got a little grief for this which I felt horrible for. But you’re really kept in the dark for a lot of Marvel stuff, but for Infinity War and Endgame in particular you’re just really kept in the dark. I didn’t know how Infinity War ended. I had no idea,’ Dave said.  

‘We shot it a little over a year straight, both Infinity War and Endgame, so I didn’t know which parts were gonna be in which movies. 

‘I was just really lost. But as we started doing press for Infinity War, I had been talking to the press openly about my work schedule and that I’d been filming for a year on both these films, not knowing how the first film was going to end and that we were going to disintegrate,’ he added.
