Considering more than 100 million people saw “Avengers: Endgame” during its opening, it’s a miracle if the movie hasn’t been spoiled for you.
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo placed a ban on spoilers, and the stars campaigned to encourage fans not to post the ending on social media. But that ban has been lifted, as of May 6, and scenes from the set of the final Avengers movie have appeared on Chris Evans’, Robert Downey Jr.’s and Chris Hemsworth’s Twitter and Instagram accounts.
But it all started April 29, when Chris Pratt (Peter Quill / Star-Lord) seized “this once in a lifetime opportunity to capture this collection of stars, a group that likely will never be in the same room again.”
Once the ban was officially lifted, however, his co-stars got in on the fun — especially Evans (Steve Rogers / Captain America).
Downey (Tony Stark / Iron Man) has been sharing everything from the cast singing “Happy Birthday” on the 11th anniversary of the first “Iron Man” movie to a lunch he hosted for the women of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. On Tuesday he posted a four-panel photo of the entire cast and crew at the Pinewood Studios in Atlanta.
Hemsworth (Thor) also had video from a Downey-hosted lunch, but it was a bit different.
Not to be left out, Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton / Hawkeye) also posted video from that lunch, which Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow) was unable to attend.
Just because the Russo brothers have lifted the ban on spoilers is no reason to ruin the movie for others, though. With about 7.7 billion people in world, chances are a couple of fans haven’t seen it yet.
