The weekend of April 26 is going to be brutally awesome and emotionally exhausting for us nerds. Premiering will be what is perhaps the most anticipated film of the year (sorry, Episode IX), Avengers: Endgame and it’s likely we’ll see some of our beloved heroes meet their end, permanently this time (and that following Sunday will perhaps be the most epic episode of Game of Thrones in the series’ history, it’s going to be rough folks).
Marvel golden boys, brothers Joe and Anthony Russo have given fans some fantastic entries into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with their last effort, Avengers: Infinity War being a comic book film masterpiece. Joe Russo recently spoke wit Empire Online and admitted that he and his brother Anthony are trying their best to have audiences go into the theater knowing as little as possible, you can check out what he had to say below
“We talked about all scales of marketing. The thing that’s most important to us is that we preserve the surprise of the narrative. When I was a kid and saw The Empire Strikes Back at 11am on the day it opened…it so profoundly moved me because I didn’t know a damn thing about the story I was going to watch. We’re trying to replicate that experience.”

I actually don’t mind the Russos or any director taking the initiative to keep audiences in the dark for their own good, because I certainly can’t stop myself from watching any promotional material a studio puts out, I have a difficult enough time keeping myself from reading spoilers. The Russos must save us from ourselves, for the good of our moviegoing experience.
How do you feel about the Russos doing this? Let us know in the comments down below!
