SALT LAKE CITY— This is the last weekend to see “Avengers: Endgame” without encountering major spoilers. According to the Russo brothers, Disney’s “official” spoiler ban will be over on May 6.
Joe and Anthony Russo were asked in an interview with "Good Morning America" on May 2 when it will be “OK” for people to talk openly about the movie. Joe Russo indicated the spoiler ban was meant to protect people who couldn’t make it to the movie within the first two weeks of release.
“Part of why we make these movies is for conversation,” Joe Russo said. "If you haven’t seen it yet, you should get out there and see it because I think by Monday people will be talking about it.”
Nothing has really kept people from spoiling Marvel’s latest film on social media, but Polygon notes that “Avengers: Infinity War” was spoiled by a meme three days after the movie released last year.Comment on this story
This time around, Disney and Marvel launched an official campaign using the hashtag #DontSpoilTheEndgame discouraging fans from posting movie spoilers online.
It seems like anyone interested in talking publicly about the film will have Marvel’s blessing to do so in just over two weeks since “Endgame” was released. It remains to be seen if “Spider-Man: Far From Home” — which will be heavily influenced by the ending of “Avengers: Endgame” and comes out this July — will demand equal spoiler protections.
