Avengers Fan Reportedly Beaten Up Outside Cinema For Spoiling 'Endgame'
A man in Hong Kong was reportedly beaten up outside a cinema after spoiling plot details from 'Avengers: Endgame'.
A photo published by AsiaOne shows a man receiving medical treatment after he was reportedly beaten up for revealing the plot to Avengers fans lined up outside a cinema in Causeway Bay.
The photo's authenticity and backstory were initially questioned, but Taiwanese media said reports were verified by other cinema goers who witnessed the Endgame brawl.
Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo wrote an open letter to "the best fans in the world", urging them to keep their lips zipped after seeing the blockbuster, warning that "Thanos still demands your silence".
"When you see Endgame in the coming weeks, please don't spoil it for others, the same way you wouldn't want it spoiled for you," they wrote, alongside the hashtag, #DontSpoilTheEndgame.
The majority of fans have taken the pledge to protect the Marvel community who haven't made it to the movies just yet -- although some have been posting 'no context spoilers' to satisfy their own need to talk about the film online in some capacity.
So if you haven't seen the film yet, you might want to consider staying offline, and possibly wearing noise-cancelling headphones when you're lining up at the cinema.
