Chris Pratt is one of the few actors in Hollywood history that defined the cliché of an overnight success. He was living out of a van in Hawaii when a producer encouraged him to move to Tinseltown and pursue a career in acting. So, he did.
It wasn’t long before Pratt was booking roles right and left but it wasn’t until he landed the role of Andy Dwyer in “Parks and Recreation” before he became semi-famous. Now he’s one of the biggest movie stars in the world.
And Chris Pratt just did something that might land him in a whole lot of trouble.
There might not be a more meteoric rise to superstardom quite like Chris Pratt. The beloved comedic actor knocked it out of the park with his portrayal of Andy Dwyer in “Parks and Recreation.”
Then he made a dramatic turn for his roles in “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Moneyball.” That’s what put him on the map where he landed the “Jurassic World” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchises. The rest is history after that.
“Avengers: Endgame” shattered box-office records over the weekend and the one thing you should know about Marvel films is that when they’re shooting, they are highly secretive.
Even the actors don’t know specific plot details. In fact, Hulk and Spider-Man actors Mark Ruffalo and Tom Holland have been known to accidentally spill plot details and now those two are strictly forbidden from reading anything outside of their parts.
Security on these Marvel sets are no joke and nobody is allowed to record video outside of the filming of the movie.
But that didn’t stop Chris Pratt from taking a “very illegal” video of the entire cast on the set of “Avengers: Endgame,” where it seems that they are about to shoot the climactic scene and all of the actors are just standing around and talking.
Pratt took to Instagram and wrote, “I remember being blown away in this moment on the @avengers set. 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.”
The video featured almost the entire cast; Robert Downey Jr., Tom Holland, Dave Bautista, Chris Evans, Elizabeth Olsen, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman and Mark Ruffalo.

I remember being blown away in this moment on the @avengers set. 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 groupthat likely will never be in the same room again. We are so blessed.
You can hear Pratt say in the video “This is a really illegal video,” and he’s right. That video is enough to infuriate the executives at Marvel and Disney. And it’s even worse because this is the climactic scene, which is where the twenty-one films in the MCU finally come to a head.
Karen Gillan, who plays Nebula, commented on Pratt’s video to note she and Zoe Saldana, who plays Gamora, were absent in the video because they sent their body doubles for the scene.
Evans also wrote on Twitter that he may have some exclusive videos from the set too, but did not say if he would share them,“This is awesome. (I may or may not have stolen a few cool videos too).”
