If you've not seen Avengers: Infinity War, you should look away now. Close that tab and come back later, because here be spoilers.
However, chances are you have seen the film, and that's because it smashed the record for the biggest worldwide opening - meaning that quite a few of you managed to make it down to watch the drama unfurl.
And boy, was there a lot of drama - with the screenwriters killing off what felt like 95 percent of the cast.
Apparently, though, that's just something you're going to have to get over, as those deaths weren't just a bluff but very much real. Well, fictional, but yeah, real (and very final) in the film world.
In an interview with BuzzFeed, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeeley explained that the fourth Avengers flick - the conclusion to Infinity War - will be 'different' to its predecessor.
Markus said the next film 'doesn't do what you think it does', adding that the deaths we've seen are 'real'.
"I just want to tell you it's real," he said.
"And the sooner you accept that, the sooner you will be able to move on to the next stage of grief."
McFeely added: "I think [the film] is a fairly mature movie for a blockbuster. It's got a lot of fun in it, obviously, but boy, it gets very mature.
"The second one is also mature. We're going to own these choices, and hopefully surprise and delight you and get you invested.
"It's by the same studio, the same filmmaking team. They were written at the same time, shot at the same time. They're clearly connected, but they are definitely two different movies, one of which is dependent on what happened previous."
The writers also said that there's a reason why favourite characters like Captain America and Black Widow haven't been featured that heavily in Infinity War.
"Some characters were better served in movie two after this event," McFeely said.
"We were making some choices based on some characters we knew were going to leave us at the end of the first movie, so they got highlighted in the first movie. And some who were going to be in the second movie more maybe got less attention or less screen time [in Infinity War]."
He added: "I'm thinking of Cap and Natasha, specifically. It's about the story we wanted to tell in movie two, mostly."
So there you go - all those hopes you had that the heartbreak you experienced could be turned around in the next film? Pretty much squashed. Soz.
