Fans Use #DontSpoilTheEndgame To Urge People To Keep Quiet About Film
Speaking as someone who had the latest episode of Line of Duty spoilt for them before getting a chance to watch it, I am fully throwing my backing behind the trending hashtag #DontSpoilTheEndgame - which, as you can probably guess, urges those who have seen the new Avengers: Endgame to keep shtum about it.
Fans of the Avengers have been waiting a whole year to finally sit down - for three long hours - and find out what happens in the final instalment and the wait is so very nearly over with the filming landing in UK cinemas on 25 April.
The film had its world premiere last night at the Los Angeles Convention Centre, open to cast, crew and a select few journalists and, while the non-spoiler early reviews are getting fans all excited, people are getting a bit twitchy about spoilers in the upcoming days.
So much so the hashtag DontSpoilTheEndgame was born and fans are sharing tips on how to avoid spoilers before you finally get a chance to watch the new flick.
Tips such muting just about everything related to the Avengers or the Marvel Cinematic Universe, like this:
Others are suggesting going a step further and just deleting social media for a few days:

Even the Russo Brothers have got involved, sharing an image of a note they wrote, 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..."
