One of the co-writers behind Back to the Future had a great response to one of the jokes in Avengers: Endgame which took a shot at the Robert Zemeckis classic.
When Avengers: Endgame started to explore time-travel as way of saving the world and getting all the Infinity Stones to assemble a new Infinity Gauntlet, the writers behind the film took the chance to reference some classic movies. One of those was Back to the Future and Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man was shocked to learn that the rules set up by the 1985 film weren’t as accurate as he originally thought. But in a recent interview with the Russo Brothers themselves, one of the co-writers on Back to the Future had a great reaction to the joke.
Bob Gale appeared on the Russo Brothers’ YouTube series, Pizza Film School, and discussed the time-travel aspect of Avengers: Endgame and Back to the Future. He points out that although Endgame takes a shot at the 1985 film, since it revisits earlier movies in the timeline – much like Marty does in Back to the Future II. Interestingly, Spider-Man star Tom Holland confirmed earlier this year there had been talks about a Back to the Future remake. Take a look at what Bob Gale said below.
“You say, ‘You mean Back to the Future‘s bullshit?’ And at the end of the day, you guys end up going back into the first Avengers movie and into the earlier Thor movies, so it really *is* kind of like Back to the Future,”
