Ten days before the theatrical release of Avengers: Endgame in the US, the movie has leaked online. And because of this, the Marvel subreddit has gone on lockdown, for now.
This lockdown is temporary until moderators can figure out a way to sift through potential reveals about Marvel’s next movie. After the lockdown, in the coming week, all posts will be heavily monitored to make sure those who don’t want to be subjected to Endgame spoilers can be free of them all while still being able to use the Marvel subreddit.
A moderator of the Marvel forum posted late Monday night, a mere hour after the news broke, that everything in the subreddit is locked for now. “For precautionary purposes of course,” the moderator explained on /r/Marvel. “Also, spoilers are bad. We strive to keep this community spoiler-free, and due to recent events, we must take these measures to ensure that. Until we are more satisfied with our filter’s ability to weed out the influx of new spoilers, all posts will be subject to approval. This shouldn’t last too long. If your post is removed, is NOT a spoiler, and not approved within a reasonable time, message one of the mods and we will help you out. Also feel free to message us if you have any other questions concerning this.”
While anticipation builds for the latest movie, Marvel has been releasing numerous TV spots before the April 26 opening in the US. While most people don’t know for sure what will happen during the movie, there is a really fun theory floating around the internet about Ant-Man involving Thanos’ butt. As for what the future holds for the MCU, we’re not sure, but we do have a good idea of what movies are coming out for Phase 4.
