Man beaten senseless outside cinema theater for spoiling ‘Avengers: Endgame’ to fans
A man was beaten and left bloodied outside a theater after shouting spoilers to ‘Avengers: Endgame’ to theater-goers who were lined up before a screening of the movie in Hong Kong.
Fans have been waiting over a year since the release of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ for the release of the recent ‘Avengers: Endgame’.
The film is the culmination of over a decade of plots, characters, and arcs in one final battle.
And while the vast majority of fans have been tight-lipped about the ending, with the hashtag #DontSpoilTheEndgame serving as a social media reminder, the man decided to throw caution to the wind and spoil the ending outside of the theater.
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo posted an open letter on social media in April prior to the movie’s release, urging fans to display common courtesy and not to spoil the movie for other fans until everyone had a chance to see it.
“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, in part.
“Remember, Thanos still demands your silence.”
The man in question saw ‘Avengers: Endgame’ for himself, then afterward stepped out of the theater and shouted spoilers in a loud voice while there was a crowd waiting to see the film.
Many in the crowd were upset, and several came over to the man and started hitting him.
