Avengers: Infinity is only weeks away now. This is both a blessing and curse. On the one hand, it means one of the most anticipated movies is nearly upon us. On the other, it opens the floodgates to terrible people spoiling the movie as early screenings take place.

The Russo Brothers, who helmed Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Civil War, took up the role of directing Avengers: Infinity War. They understand that the movie, ten years in the making, is a big pay off for those who have kept up with the MCU over the past decade and don’t want the surprise spoiled ahead of time. So they took to Twitter to deliver a poignant letter urging the would-be spoilers to take a vow of silence instead.


In the letter, the Brothers open up about what the movie means to the countless fans who have eagerly awaited the movie for years. They state only a “handful of people know the film’s true plot,” and this was only possible with a high degree of secrecy over the past two years. It would be a shame for the years of work to be spoiled.

For that reason, they ask those who watch Infinity War to keep the same level of secrecy and not spoil the movie. The directors’ plea surely won’t stop everyone from spoiling the movie, but it may deter some. They end the letter with the funny hashtag #ThanosDemandsYourSilence. If the directors can’t earn your silence, maybe Thanos can.

Avengers: Infinity War opens April 27.
