As with any major release nowadays, spoilers are bound to circulate following release. Avengers: Endgame will be no exception. With just one week to go before the film's theatrical release, fans are preparing for a wave of spoilers as excited audiences begin discussing the conclusive installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Infinity Saga.
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo are aware of the problem and wish for all audiences to be able to experience every surprise Avengers: Endgame has in store, so much so that the filmmakers have written and posted a letter to fans and audiences everywhere, urging them not to ruin the film for others.
"This is it. This is the end," The letter starts. "The end of an unprecedented mosaic spanning eleven years and eleven franchises."
Later, the letter reads: "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."
The letter ends with a plea from the directing duo for fans to not ruin the story of Avengers: Endgame.
"Please don't spoil it for others, the same way you wouldn't want it spoiled for you. Remember, Thanos still demands your silence."
This is not the first letter the Russos have written to audiences. A similar letter was posted just before the release of Avengers: Infinity War, urging fans to help maintain the film's secrets. That letter -- unlike the most recent one -- did not highlight the hard work and dedication that went into these films. Hopefully this reminder will deter enthusiastic fans from spoiling the film.
It's no secret that the filmmakers have gone to great lengths to prevent audiences from uncovering telling plot details, going so far as to keep the stars themselves away from the scripts until it was absolutely necessary. Unfortunately, it seems potential leaks and spoilers are already beginning to circulate, despite the fact that the film is more than a week away from release. Fans have to do their part to ensure everyone else gets to enjoy Avengers: Endgame just as much as those who are lucky enough to see it on day one.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau and Bradley Cooper, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Josh Brolin. The film arrives April 26.
