[Spoilers for Avengers: Endgame below.]

In life, there are many rules. You don’t run red lights, you don’t bring full bottles of shampoo on flights, and you don’t spoil Avengers movies. Because of that last one, Marvel has had to become very strict, especially as the films grow more epic and surprise-laden. While Mark Ruffalo and Tom Holland are known as the loose lips of the operation, it turns out Chris Pratt took his chances as well, by taking an illegal video on the set of Endgame. If that phone had been hacked or stolen, that’d be some bad, bad news.

After the massive weekend the movie had at the box office, Pratt took to Instagram to show his love for the movie with a behind-the-scenes video he took on set. It’s during the end battle, where every hero returns from death (?) and work together to conquer Thanos and his huge army.


“I remember being blown away in this moment on the @avengers set,” Pratt wrote. “Nobody was allowed to film anything on their phones. I said screw it. No rule was going to stop me from seizing this once in a lifetime opportunity to capture this collection of stars, a group that likely will never be in the same room again. We are so blessed.” Pratt’s casual pan captures most of the Guardians, including Gamora and Nebula’s stunt doubles, as well as Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman, Paul Rudd, and Elizabeth Olsen, all of whom are actual human beings. Sean Gunn, the film’s on-set Rocket, would like you to know that he’s the most famous person in the shot, though.

Pratt’s not the only one with his phone out during filming, though. Spoiler aficionado Mark Ruffalo posted another set photo before the movie came out. Given his track record, Marvel’s lucky his shot didn’t accidentally include a shot of Black Widow’s dead body.

Newcomer Brie Larson, meanwhile, was so scared about spoilers that she has virtually no photos or videos from her whole time filming Endgame. “Since I am the newest (and most scared of spoiling) Avenger I have zero cute BTS from filming,” she wrote in an Instagram post thanking fans for the love. After she posted that, though, she did find one behind-the-scenes photo of her “Carol Danvers” director’s chair, which, for some reason, has a pizza sitting on it.
