Marvel fans have been urged not to spoil the surprise for others after snippets from the much-anticipated Avengers sequel were leaked. Five-minute videos from Avengers: Endgame have surfaced online, and director duo Anthony and Joe Russo have urged fans to keep spoilers to themselves.

Although some pirated Avengers: Endgame clips appear to have been taken down, short clips including detailed posts circulated on social media. The source of the leaked footage remains unknown, but appears to have prompted the Russo brothers to issue a statement after pirated footage, recorded from the film, showed a scene from the much-anticipated blockbuster.

In a letter, the Russo brothers appealed to fans, “not to spoil it for others, the same way you wouldn’t want it spoiled for you.”

“We are about to see Avenger: Endgame within a few days. Since not everyone will be able to watch the movie on the first day. We request you to keep silence until a couple of weeks after the movie release in order to avoid spoiling the story or plot details for our fellow marvel fans.

“We request you to keep a safe distance from social media so that the movie won’t be spoiled for you and you won’t spoil it for others. We know you are excited. We know you want to talk about this all day. But there is a time for everything.”

In the sequel, the surviving members of the Avengers regroup for a last stand against cosmic bad guy Thanos. The few remnants of the Avengers superhero team will once again renew their collective conviction against Thanos, with an addition to the team being Captain Marvel.

For those who remain true to opposing piracy, here’s a video below to whet your already bubbling anticipation.
