With Avengers: Infinity War just weeks away, the Russo Bros. – the directors behind the new movie – have put out a request, and it’s a pretty simple one: Please don’t spoil the movie for anyone.

Taking to social media, the directing duo posted an image of the Infinity Gauntlet holding an open letter. On the letter was the following request:

“To the greatest fans in the world,

“We’re about to embark on the Avengers: Infinity War press tour. We will be visiting fans all over the world screening only a limited amount of selected footage from the film in order to avoid spoiling the story for future viewers.

“We will not screen the film in its entirety until the Los Angeles premiere shortly before the film’s global release. Everyone involved with the film has worked incredibly hard for the past two years maintaining the highest level of secrecy. Only a handful of people know the film’s true plot.

“We’re asking that when you see Infinity War, in the coming months, that you maintain that same level of secrecy so that all fans can have an equal experience when they watch it for the first time. Don’t spoil it for others, the same way you wouldn’t want it spoiled for you.

“Good luck and happy viewing.

“The Russo Brothers.”

They signed off the letter with the hashtag: #ThanosDemandsYourSilence

So, there you have it in black and white and plainly spelt out: Once you’ve seen the movie, keep the content of the film to yourself. Don’t be that person.

Of course, not everyone will adhere to this request, but if we can all try then it keeps things fresh for those who hate spoilers.

Avengers: Infinity War arrives in UK cinemas on April 26th.
