Avengers: Endgame is out in theaters April 26.

Avengers: Endgame will be monumental for so many ways.

Another fan advised everyone to "be like Doctor Strange", who "watched Endgame 14 million six hundred and five times" but didn't spoil it. Fans also shared screenshots of all the keywords they've muted on Twitter, to avoid spoilers.

The plea comes as blockbuster film and TV producers are going to ever more extreme lengths to protect against plot leaks.

Peter Sciretta, editor of Slashfilm, is among those putting the word out that "stuff is now out there", which would suggest that this isn't just trolls inventing possible revelations, but the real deal. "When you see Endgame in the coming weeks, please don't spoiler it for others, the same way you wouldn't want it spoiled for you".

Almost one year ago, fans were devasted when Avengers: Infinity War concluded with Thanos carrying out his mission to eradicate half of the population in the universe, including several MCU heroes. For a full rundown of the leaks, you can check out the "MAJOR endgame moments leaked" on the r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers subreddit.

Evans, Downey, and Paltrow star in Avengers: Endgame alongside Chris Hemsworth's Thor, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye, Don Cheadle'sWar Machine, Karan Gillan's Nebula, Bradley Cooper's Rocket, Brie Larson's Captain Marvel and Paul Rudd's Ant-Man.

"I was pretty sure it was gonna be me", Ruffalo said. "I think this one has even more spoilers than the last one".

"I don't consider that the leak has actually ruined the movie for me".

Go Into Hiding Staying off the internet can only do so much, so if you're especially spoiler-sensitive, then it's probably safest to leave town under the cover of darkness, drive into the mountains, and hide out in a cabin.

The film, which brings together multiple comic book characters, starts its rollout on April 24 in Australia and China before arriving in the United States on April 25.
