[USA], May 8 (ANI): 'Avengers: Endgame' co-director Joe Russo gave the Marvel fans a glimpse of intense behind-the-scenes preparation that went into Thor's epic 'going for the head' shot in the film.
Chris Hemsworth's Thor needed all the help he could get to prepare for one of the most iconic scenes. And it seems like Joe Russo helped the actor with the target practice.
On Wednesday, Russo brothers posted a picture on his twitter handle in which he can be seen holding Thor's hammer axe 'Stormbreaker' while having a deep discussion with Hemsworth.
"Day 1 of 'going for the head' practice," he captioned the picture.
Those who have watched the ultra-popular film which released on April 26 will instantly catch the reference of that caption.
While Thor chopping off Thanos' head in the very beginning of the film might have taken many by surprise, the single hit was hands down one of the most memorable scenes from the movie.
Russo's post proves that a lot of detailing went into making the scene as perfect as it finally came out to be.
In the film, after chopping Thanos' head off his shoulder, Thor says 'I went for the head", which was a clear reference to 'Avengers: Infinity War', in which Thor, in an attempt to kill Thanos before he snaps his fingers, hits him in the chest with 'Stormbreaker'.
However, after taking the hit, Thanos smiles and says 'You should have gone for the head' before snapping his finger and causing the devastation that he did.
'Endgame' has been breaking all possible box office scores and records ever since it released in April. As far as the worldwide box office performance is concerned, according to media reports, the film has already taken over James Cameron's Titanic and is expected to soon take over Avatar too. (ANI)
