We’ve said it many times before, but every week seems to bring a new headline about a broken record that reminds us all over again that Avengers: Endgame is going to be one of the biggest movies of all time. Hell, maybe the biggest! With such a massive profile it was simply miraculous that the team at Marvel, led by studio boss Kevin Feige and directors Joe and Anthony Russo, was able to maintain the secrecy of this production. Well, the miracle has apparently ended.
Just 10 days before the conclusion of the entire 10 years-long Infinity Saga official hits cinemas, and huge spoilers have leaked online.

Basically, we’re telling you to be incredibly careful or even avoid all these usual internet haunts completely if you can, if you want to go into this film unspoiled.
And if you do see anything, report the person and the content immediately using whatever mechanisms are available for the platform you find yourself on. With just over a week to go before we can watch this historic movie for ourselves, it’s us that are in the endgame now. We’re so close, so let’s not let some snivelling scum people ruin things for the rest of us.
