My brain genuinely can’t handle the excitement after being subjected to Endgame and Game Of Thrones‘ Battle for Winterfell in the same week – both of which are the culmination of years and years of build-up and anticipation.
For me, though, Endgame was just on another level, perfectly tying up the MCU franchise with the best instalment to date.
Shockingly, though, people still haven’t seen the film, which is annoying for me because I can’t talk about specific plot details and *that* awesome moment we all know I’m talking about but ultimately can’t explicitly say.
Nevertheless, I’m not one to reveal spoilers and I’ll remain strong in my convictions. Like Thanos, I suppose.
Unlike this next bloke, however, who found out the hard way that people really don’t take too kindly to spoilers.
According to Deadline, the unidentified man from Hong Kong spent a few moments shouting plot developments at the fans in a local cinema before they attacked him.
He was apparently left beaten and bloodied on the side of the road, with a photograph circulating online showing him with blood on the side of his head as he awaited medical treatment.
People had already been warning those who had seen the film to keep quiet, with the #DontSpoilTheEndgame hashtag circulating not long after.
Joe and Anthony Russo, the film’s creators, have also been keen to discourage people from sharing spoilers about the latest movie, sharing a letter to fans which read:
“To the greatest fans in the world, this is it. This is the end. The end of an unprecedented narrative mosaic spanning eleven years and eleven franchises.
“For all of you who have been on this journey with us since the very beginning, sharing every high and low with your family, your friends, your classmates, your co-workers. Investing so deeply in every character and story-line. Laughing. Cheering. Shedding tears.
“Giving so freely of your thoughts and emotions in spirited dialogue, theories, fan art, and fan fiction. Please know that the two of us, along with everyone involved in Endgame, have worked tirelessly for the last three years with the sole intention of delivering a surprising and emotionally powerful conclusion to the Infinity Saga.
“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.
“When you see Endgame in the coming weeks, please don’t spoil it for other, the same way you wouldn’t want it spoiled for you.
“Remember, Thanos still demands your silence. As always, good luck and happy viewing…”
It goes without saying that revealing spoilers is a piss-poor way to go about ruining somebody’s day.
But then again, so does beating someone up – something I absolutely don’t condone.
So with that I won’t exactly say he deserved it but maybe next time he’ll think twice about being a complete d*ck.
Good rule of thumb, that: not being a complete d*ck.
