The Russo Brothers, who are the Directors of Avengers: Infinity War, are having a bit of fun with fans today on Twitter. The duo have issued a letter to fans asking them not to spoil Avengers: Infinity War when it comes out, and they enlisted the help of Thanos to get their message across. Their letter reveals that only a handful of people who worked on the film know the true plot and outcome, so during its press tour the Russo brothers will not be showing anyone the full movie. In fact, the full version of the film will not be screened until the L.A. premiere, which is set just a few days before the film’s global release.
I appreciate this act by the Russo brothers, but a part of me feels that this will only motivate Internet trolls to spoil the film’s secretive moments even more so now than before. Oh well, you know what to do to keep yourself safe from spoilers, so stick to your plan and keep your eyes and ears shut on all things Infinity War until April 27th.
You can check out the full letter below, plus Thanos’ support for the statement.
“To the greatest fans in the world.
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
