Marvel Studios have so far done an excellent job of keeping people away from spoilers regarding “Avengers: Endgame,” and the audience has been responding in kind with many people actively being quite careful not to give away the film’s secrets.
That said, some got out when a bit of footage from “Avengers: Endgame” leaked online a week ago. Attending the film’s premiere on Monday night, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige explained to the Associated Press that while he’s not happy about the leak, the wide and deliberate avoidance of it by fans ultimately pleased him:
“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 [by saying], ‘Don’t watch it, don’t spoil it for anybody else.’ 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 12 years, depending on where you joined us. I’m excited that that day is finally here.”
“Avengers: Endgame” has already begun releasing around the world including China where it hit Wednesday and in its first day of release broke the single-day record for the market with $107.2 million. The film dominated Chinese cinema screens on opening day, with 99% of all movie tickets sold on Wednesday for it. The movie hits U.S. cinemas tomorrow evening.
