I never thought I would have to write a post like this. Maybe because I thought people would be decent when it comes to, arguably, the biggest cinema release. If you’re unsure what I’m referring to, don’t worry there will be no spoilers here, but let me summarize.
Somehow, a video has been released and shared that contains major Endgame spoilers. I haven’t actually seen what the video contains (because I’m sensible and have self control) but given the response online on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, it appears as though the footage contains massive spoilers.
I am writing this as a warning for fans to be careful on social media. If you have unfortunately seen the footage then I’m sorry but please refrain from spoiling it for others. We are all excited for Avengers: Endgame but please don’t ruin it for others.
I wish I could offer some sort of advice but when it comes to battling against social media, the only thing I can recommend is perhaps stepping down from social media for a little while or unfollowing certain superhero themed accounts, while I’m sure they have no intentions of spoiling it, it only takes one person in the comments.
So I urge all Superhero fans to band together and look out for each other. Some may argue that it’s just a film, they’re right… it is just a film but it’s a film that has only been made possible by the 10 years of hard work and dedication from the various crews who have created this immersive and spectacular universe and the fans who have contributed towards a mostly loving and open fan base. Like I said, it only takes a few people (not fans) to ruin things.
Be careful, don’t look for spoilers, and don’t post them.
