'Avengers: Endgame' Directors Urge Fans to Help Stop Spoilers: 'Thanos Still Demands Your Silence'
By Scott Baumgartner
The filmmakers behind Avengers: Endgame have written a letter to fans asking for help tamping down on spoilers as the film's release date nears.
"This is it. This is the end. The end of an unprecedented narrative mosaic spanning eleven years and eleven franchises," Joe and Anthony Russo wrote on Tuesday. "For all of you who have been on this journey with us since the very beginning, sharing every high and low with your family, your friends, your classmates, your co-workers. Investing so deeply in every character and storyline."
"Laughing. Cheering. Shedding tears. Giving so freely of your thoughts and emotions in spirited dialogue, theories, fan art, and fan fiction. 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 continues.
It concludes with their plea that those who see Endgame keep what they know to themselves so as not to tarnish the experience for others.
"Because so many of you have invested your time, your hearts, and your souls in these stories, we're once again asking for your help," the brothers wrote. "When you see Endgame in the coming weeks, please don't spoiler it for others, the same way you wouldn't want it spoiled for you. Remember, Thanos still demands your silence."
That last line is a reference to a similar letter the directors wrote before Avengers: Infinity War hit theaters. This time around, they have a new hashtag: #DontSpoilTheEndgame.
Endgame, the follow-up to Infinity War, is already breaking pre-sale box office records and is poised to smash Infinity War's opening weekend numbers, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Needless to say, anticipation is already at a fever pitch.
Avengers: Endgame arrives in theaters on April 26.
