Kevin Feige Says That Avengers: Endgame Leak Was Not Cool


Last week, almost five minutes of Avengers: Endgame footage found its way online, sending Marvel fans fleeing from social media for fear of being exposed to the leak’s many spoilers. And after more than a year of keeping the film’s biggest secrets under wraps, it’s only natural that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige was a little upset at the development.

Speaking at the world premiere of Endgame in Los Angeles, the producer discussed his reaction to the leak in an interview with Associated Press:

“I wasn’t pleased. It’s not cool. It’s not fun. But the response was what I expected, which was everybody turning it off, dismissing it, ‘Don’t watch it, don’t spoil it for anybody else.’”

Indeed, while many Marvel fans have spent the past year trying to predict the events of the Avengers: Infinity War sequel, most of them were pretty unhappy to see some genuine spoilers emerge so close to release day. As Feige himself went on to say, the filmgoing public, by and large, is hoping to go into Endgame knowing as little as possible:

“People are excited to see the movie fresh. People are excited to see the movie for the first time. That’s what they’ve been waiting a year, or twelve years, depending on where you joined us. So I’m excited that that day is finally here.”

For most of us, that day isn’t here quite yet, though fans in China and other regions have already enjoyed the movie’s first midnight screenings. With that in mind, it’ll likely be increasingly hard to avoid spoilers as the week progresses, meaning that any fan looking to go in fresh might be well advised to stay off Twitter and Instagram for the next few days.

Even co-directors Anthony and Joe Russo have shared multiple messages in the past week warning fans to keep quiet about what they know. But while the pair have certainly succeeded in creating an intriguing sense of mystery around the project, you can judge for yourself if Avengers: Endgame has any secrets worth hiding when the film hits theaters on April 26th.
