There is always the looming threat of spoilers surfacing on the internet, particularly in the case of Avengers: Infinity War — a highly anticipated release that has been in the making for nearly ten years.
Taking to Twitter a few hours back, directors Joe and Anthony Russo shared an open letter that requests fans worldwide to not post any spoilers in the coming months.
The accompanying hashtag “#ThanosDemandsYourSilence” should have already started trending online and will presumably see the Mad Titan personally deal with anyone that spoils the plot for others.
For those unable to open the source link, here is what the letter says:
To the greatest fans in the world,
We’re about to embark on the Avengers: Infinity War press tour. We will be visiting fans all over the world screening only a limited amount of selected footage from the film in order to avoid spoiling the story for future viewers.
We will not screen the film in its entirety until the Los Angeles premiere shortly before the film’s global release. Everyone involved with the film has worked incredibly hard for the past two years maintaining the highest level of secrecy. Only a handful of people know the film’s true plot.
We’re asking that when you see Infinity War, in the coming months, that you maintain the same level of secrecy so that all fans can have an equal experience when they watch it for the first time. Don’t spoil it for others, the same way you wouldn’t want it to be spoiled for you.
Good luck and happy viewing.
The Russo Brothers
The Russo brothers have been taking great steps to prevent spoilers from reaching the internet since Avengers: Infinity War entered production. Instead of one, multiple scripts were written and handed to the cast. These contained various fake scenes that were still filmed by the crew. Hence, no one outside a small circle of trusted individuals knew the truth about how the movie would play out.
Avengers: Infinity War will open in theaters worldwide on April 27, 2018, and in China on May 11, 2018. It will be the first of a two-part series. The untitled sequel, presently dubbed Avengers 4, is slated to premiere on May 3, 2019.
