The Russo Brothers are pretty serious about preserving the movie-going experience for fans of Avengers: Infinity War. With the movie’s press tour about to kick off, the directors intend to screen footage from the film across several territories and conventions to generate even more buzz around the film (as if current anticipation wasn’t enough already). And chances are, descriptions from those scenes may leak out on the internet and could ruin the experience for fans who will be unable to view the movie until its release a few weeks from now. Things could go even bad and entire footage from the movie could drop as happened back in November before the teaser’s debut and more infamously with the D23 / San Diego Comic Con footage that leaked onto the internet.
The Russo Brothers aren’t resting though. Anthony and Joe Russo have taken to Twitter and called upon The Mad Titan Thanos himself to share a letter dissuading fans from spoiling the movie for those who haven’t seen it. Below is the tweet followed by the letter, reproduced in its entirety for anyone who might have issues loading the tweet.
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 spoiled for you.
Good luck and happy viewing
The Russo Brothers
It is commendable that in an age where it’s hard for anything to stay under wraps, the director duo has managed to keep most of the plot a secret. A lot of the cast members haven’t even read the entire script and Tom Holland was once asked to burn his copy of the script when he accidentally took it home. While it might still be possible for fans to stay mum until the movie comes out at least, it’s going to be incredibly difficult to avoid spoilers once the movie is in theaters. As a fan, your best bet is to catch the movie as soon as possible or avoid the internet after the film releases until you’ve seen it.
What do you think of this plea by the Russo Brothers? Will you avoid sharing spoilers now that Thanos demands your silence? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
