If you haven’t heard, some dipshit leaked a bunch of Endgame footage and is spreading it throughout social media and other platforms for shits and giggles. This has led some Marvel fans to ditch social media completely—a good thing, honestly—to avoid getting inadvertently spoiled. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo, meanwhile, have released an open letter to accompany a hashtag campaign fittingly titled #DontSpoilTheEndgame.

“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,” 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.”


It continues, “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. 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.”

Sure, there’s only 10 days until Endgame opens in theaters, but, as we all know, a lot can happen in 10 days, namely gigantic spoilers smashing onto your screen like the world’s worst jump scare video. A good idea, then, if you’re spoiler averse, is to mute Marvel-related keywords, avoid Reddit like the plague, and cocoon yourself in a comforter with 10 days worth of water and rations. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
