Thanos is demanding silence from those about the see portions of Avengers: Infinity War.
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo shared a photo on social media that shows a statement making it clear that the film will not be screened early in its entirety and asks for those who attend opportunities to see portions of the film or even those who won’t see it until it is officially released to keep spoilers to themselves.
The statement reads:
“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.
