SALT LAKE CITY — Careful. There are “Avengers: Endgame” spoilers out there right now.
Spoilers for the upcoming “Avengers: Endgame” flooded social media this week — so much so that some fans have given up social media altogether to avoid them, according to ComicBook.com.
- “It is reportedly so intense that for some people, taking the measures to mute every possible keyword that would possibly result in the leaks hitting their timeline and news feeds simply aren't enough. After all, even if you do mute something it doesn't mean someone won't post a screen shot that gets around those muted keywords and then you're spoiled. Too risky.”
In fact, a hashtag called #DontSpoilEndgame has popped up on social media as fans try to combat the spoilers.
ComicBook.com, which covers leaks and news about “Avengers: Endgame,” advises those not interested in spoilers to avoid Twitter, Reddit and other parts of social media.
So how do you avoid spoilers? Let’s look back at The Wrap’s report from when “Infinity War” dropped last year. You’ll want to avoid social media — including Twitter, Reddit and 4chan. There’s also a Google Chrome extension called Unspoiler that allows you to block headlines and feeds about your favorite content.
“Avengers: Endgame” director Joe Russo told Box Office Bro that fans should go into the film without being spoiled.Comment on this story
- "At a certain point, I’m sure we’ll write another letter this year that asks everyone to stay off the internet," Joe Russo told Box Office Pro. "I think this one has even more spoilers than the last one. This is a culture that wants everything now, and it’s getting worse. The world is connected via social media, and information travels within seconds. If you’ve been following along with this narrative for 10 years, you’re going to want to protect yourself. It’s best to go in clean. I encourage people to go opening weekend because I’m sure everything is going to hit the internet the moment the movie hits the screen."
“Avengers: Endgame” arrives in theaters on April 26. Early reviews will hit theaters earlier in the week. So fans only have a week left.
We’re in the endgame now.
