Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo have pleaded with people not to spoil the film’s ending, out of respect for fans who have not yet seen the movie.
“Because so many of you have invested your time, your hearts, and your souls into these stories, we’re once again asking for your help,” their statement read.
“Remember, Thanos still demands your silence.”
Generally, fans have respected this and are going to great lengths to avoid either sharing or reading spoilers about the film.
