The Russos Discourage Avengers: Endgame Spoilers in an Open Letter to Fans
Although Marvel is ramping up Avengers: Endgame’s marketing campaign, the film remains shrouded in secrecy. Since the movie will probably alter the course of MCU as we know it, the studio is trying its damndest to safeguard against spoiler leaks. And if the Russos have anything to say about it, fans will abstain from ruining the movie for anyone else. Endgame’s co-directors made their feelings known in a new open letter posted to their Twitter account. You can read it for yourself below.

The letter begins with the directors thanking fans for their support before imploring fans for their discretion. “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,” they wrote. “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.”
This actually isn’t the first time that Anthony and Joe Russo have made a request like this of moviegoers. On the eve of Avengers: Infinity War’s premiere last year, the brothers advised fans to steer clear of social media if they wanted to avoid spoilers. They capped off their plea with the hashtag #ThanosDemandsYourSilence, which is referenced in this new letter. It also includes a brand new hashtag that’s currently trending on Twitter, #DontSpoilTheEndgame.
The Russos’ letter doesn’t directly respond to leaked Endgame footage that recently began circulating on social media. Disney is reportedly doing its best to scrub all traces of the footage from the web. However, some fans aren’t taking any chances by muting key words on Twitter staying off the internet entirely.
