1.First, Tom Holland improvised the moment when Peter says, "I don't wanna go" before he's turned to dust in Avengers: Infinity War. When Holland wants to make himself cry, he repeats a phrase over and over again, and that's what inspired this.

9.In Spider-Man: Homecoming, when Spider-Man is trapped under a building, Holland was actually lying underneath real rubble and cement, so it was super heavy; he said it was the hardest scene to film in the entire movie.
10.In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Hayley Atwell wore very little makeup for the scene when Steve visits Peggy, who has Alzheimer's, so the finished product was created digitally. An older actor performed the scene, mimicking Atwell's movements, and then the two performances were combined.
11.While filming Peggy's funeral in Captain America: Civil War, Chris Evans jokingly texted Atwell a picture of the funeral, saying, "You look pretty hot when you're old and dead."

16.Before coming up with the mid-credits scene when Hope, Hank, and Janet turn to dust and Scott is trapped in the Quantum Realm in Ant-Man and the Wasp, the filmmakers thought about hinting at Thanos and Infinity War in the backgrounds of scenes throughout the movie, but it didn't pack the emotional punch that they wanted.
