Avengers: Endgame is raking in the rewards and breaking records; it’s already broken a number of records, including making $1.2billion (£0.79billion) at the international box office, making it the biggest global opening in film history and the first film ever to surpass the one billion mark in its debut.

Zoe Saldana, who plays Gamora in the Marvel film, decided to celebrate the film’s success with an epic throwback photo she took with Chris Evans back in 2010.

The 40-year-old actress took to Instagram and posted a cute photo of them messing around while shooting The Losers. It was a world away from Avengers, and she reflected on how far they’ve come.

She captioned it: ‘Flashback to Chris Evans and I goofing around while shooting The Losers years ago. Time flies and if anyone would’ve told us then about The Marvel Universe, we would’ve laughed and brushed it off.

‘We were already grateful to be working and doing what we loved by telling stories. Love you Chris! #thelosersmovie – #winning this weekend! #captainamerica #gamora #dancing #puertorico #chrisevans.’


Fellow actor Columbus Short claimed he took the photo, and he told Saldana: ‘To be real Sis I believe I took this picture. And I remember distinctly laughing harder than I probably ever had. Some of my fondest memories was with you guys. I was so proud watching #EndGame last night. Literally tears watching you guys SHINE!’

The movie, produced by Marvel rival DC Comics and Warner Bros, follows a team of elite mercenaries (of which Chris is, of course, a member) as they join forces in the Bolivian jungle to go after the CIA that double-crossed them and left them for dead.

Action follows Zoe and Chris wherever they go, as nine years later they’ve crossed over to Marvel to play tortured and principled (respectively) heroes.

Fans of Avengers are here for the fond memories. One wrote: ‘I remember watching the losers after you became gamora and evans became steve rogers and i thought “hey, gamora and steve have actually crossed paths!” and its actually a beautiful thing bc the marvel universe is soooo big and it keeps expanding and collecting the most talented actors and you two are one of them. thank you to both of you. love you lots [sic]’

‘I never knew I needed this photo until now,’ another fan wrote. ‘This is special,’ said one.

And an Instagram account called Avengers Therapy offered the following: ‘Anyone want to be added to a group chat where we cry about endgame?’

Fans aren’t the only ones to engage with all the Endgame emotions. Chris Evans recently tweeted in what we can only assume was tearfully: ‘Some of these #ThankYouAvengers posts are incredibly touching. I’m feeling a deep sense of gratitude today’.
