In fact, Russo Brothers, the directors of the film, even wrote an emotional open letter to fans, requesting them to not spill spoilers and let fans enjoy the film in peace. The stakes are simply too high with endgame, the finale in Marvel's eleven-years-long Avengers franchise.
However, one 'spoil'sport in Hong Kong found out the hard way that fans just how serious some fans were about the "no-spoilers" rule. As news of the film's first screenings across the world made their way to feeds, another story went viral.
As per a report in AsiaOne, a man reportedly gave spoilers to the film while waiting in queue to enter a movie theater screening the film in Hong Kong. The man was allegedly brutally beaten up after angry fans attacked him, leaving him injured.

Some guy in Hong Kong decided to shout Endgame spoilers outside the cinema and people rushed and beat him. That's what some of you deserve— Upper Iweka Iron Man (@Ikem_Legend) April 27, 2019
#DontSpoilTheEndgame This is a movie experience and taking away that experience from people who have invested in this 11 year and 22 film journey is theft. (This person wasn't beaten that badly....his t-shirt is still white without any blood stains) https://t.co/NNv7pqG7Et— Devil Comics (@devilcomics) April 27, 2019

However, some people tried to be the voice of reason, stating while spoilers were annoying, resorting to violence was hardly the solution.

I get spoilers are annoying but come on. What's the point of violence over it?
Is it possible that the action-packed superhero film may just be influencing its fans to act out in ways that civilised humans were not supposed to? Maybe after saving the multiverse, the Avengers could do well to give the residents of Planet Earth some lessons in bonhomie and good manners.
