No one is safe from the looming specter of major Avengers: Endgame spoilers. Per a report from CNBC, footage from the highly-anticipated Infinity War sequel has leaked online and contains some pretty spoiler-y scenes.
To make matters worse, screenshots, gifs, and explainer posts have begun to wind their way onto Twitter and Reddit.
Obviously, we will not be linking to the footage here or even discussing what it entails. Marvel fans have the right to go into this film, which is over 10 years in the making, with zero baggage if they can. Even Disney is in agreement with this idea, being extremely conservative about what they’ve released so far and barring the press from seeing the finished film prior to its premiere.
That said, the footage and revelations/theories from its content are out there on the Internet if you so choose to seek them out. For those of you wanting to avoid any kinds of reveals (like we are), you may want to stay off social media or take certain precautions like muting related words on Twitter (and being careful of which sites you read).
As CNBC points out, the person who leaked the footage most likely had security clearance to view it, so either someone at Disney could be in a lot of trouble or this is a renegade plan to drum up even more buzz around the feature. The second hypothesis seems extremely unlikely since Endgame is already at maximum buzz capacity, and the footage is apparently very low quality.
Naturally, the movie is expected to snap all kinds of box office records out of existence and perhaps invent a few new ones. After all, reality can be whatever the Russo Brothers want it to be. Just yesterday, it was reported that the project, along with Star Wars: Episode IX, could help revive the box office after one of the worst lows in years.
Avengers: Endgame opens in theaters everywhere April 26. Set after Thanos (Josh Brolin) wiped out half of all life in the universe, the film centers on the remaining Avengers attempting to recover the six Infinity Stones and reverse the Mad Titan’s genocidal actions.
