With Avengers: Infinity War nearing its release, it is inevitable that spoilers are bound to come out. Now the filmmakers are asking that fans keep the spoilers to themselves.
Thanos Demands Silence
In an open letter addressed to the "greatest fans in the world," The Russo Brothers asked that spoilers be kept in the down low ahead of the film's release in theaters. In a lengthy request posted on Twitter, the filmmakers revealed that they are about to embark on a worldwide press tour for Avengers: Infinity War. They will be screening "only a limited amount of selected footage" from the movie to avoid spoilers.
Fortunate fans will see the film in its entirety only at the Los Angeles premiere on April 23, shortly before the movie arrives in theaters. The Russo Brothers said that only a handful of people know about the film's true plot. Those involved in the film has worked so hard for the past two years keeping the highest level of secrecy, so as a favor to these people, the directors request that fans at the press tours do not reveal spoilers online.
"We're asking that when you see Infinity War, in the coming months, that you maintain that 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," reads the brother's message.
The brothers closed off their letter with "Good luck and happy viewing" and affixed their respective signatures at the end. The Russo Brothers also added the hashtag #ThanosDemandsYourSilence. The Mad Titan's gauntlet makes an appearance in the tweet to highlight the importance of the message and in maintaining the high level of secrecy surrounding the film.
The Russo Brothers are not just asking fans to keep spoilers to themselves. The letter also applies to journalists who will be at the Avengers: Infinity War press tours to see portions of the film ahead of their interviews with the star-studded cast.
