Welp, the Russo Brothers certainly know how to up the hype for their already-hyped film. As we already know from the trailers, there are some BIG things in store for Avengers: Infinity War. It’s bringing together heroes we’ve been following for a solid ten years or so, but with it, it’s likely also bringing unexpected twists and turns.
After a decade of endless story and almost no death to our main heroes, fans are anxious to see just who will get killed off, and how things will shake out in the fight against the Mad Titan Thanos. In anticipation of all this, the Russos have penned a letter to fans, stating that Thanos himself demands their silence. Adding some color to the whole deal, they have an Infinity Gauntlet next to the letter.
Here’s what it had to say:
“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 the 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

This is definitely not normal. Usually, with Marvel Studios films, there is a press junket a couple weeks prior to the film’s release. Before the junket, there is a screening that we send one or two of our staff to — so that they can go into their interviews with informed questions. Marvel usually has social media embargo lift around junket time, too.
This time around, it looks like our interviewers will only be seeing bits and pieces of the film — rather than the whole thing, which is odd. I guess we’ll be seeing it the Monday or Tuesday before, right around the time the embargo lifts. They aren’t taking any chances for journalists to accidentally leak some big reveals, and we can’t exactly blame them.
What do you think of this letter? Let us know down below!
