Avengers Directors Ask Fans Not To Spoil The Movie
Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Avengers: Endgame, are pleading with their fans not to spoil what’s arguably the most highly anticipated superhero film of all time. This comes after some pirated footage reportedly leaked all over the internet.
A video clip that seems to have been recorded during a film screening started circulating across social media, according to reports from CNBC. This comes only a little over a week ahead of the film’s April 26 release date.
The Russo Brothers took to Twitter on Tuesday to urge the “the greatest fans in the world” not to ruin the film for other moviegoers, using the self-explanatory hashtag, #DontSpoilTheEndgame. Throughout the letter, they emphasize just how much time and effort has gone into this film–both from the cast and crew and from the fans who have been invested in the storyline for more than 10 years.
“Please know that the two of us, along with everyone involved in ‘Endgame,’ have worked tirelessly for the last three years with the sole intention of delivering a surprising and emotionally powerful conclusion to the Infinity saga,” they wrote in the letter they posted to Twitter. “Because so many of you have invested your time, your hearts and your souls into these stories, we’re once again asking for your help.”
The directors continued on to say, “When you see ‘Endgame’ in the coming weeks, please don’t spoil it for others, the same way you wouldn’t want it spoiled for you. Remember, Thanos still demands your silence.”
Last year’s Avengers: Infinity War grossed over $2 billion worldwide, and even though those numbers are insanely impressive, experts are already speculating that Endgame could do over $800 million worldwide in the first weekend, alone.
