It seems some Avengers: Endgame scenes have leaked, much to the upset of the cast and crew.

Avengers: Endgame leaked footage rears its head, threatening to ruin the film for the vast majority who want to enter the fourth instalment clueless. The MCU has delighted fans for over a decade now, and this latest effort promises to offer audiences the best entry yet. It's easily the most anticipated film of the year and it's only a week away; it's no surprise that some are intent on spoiling its secrets. 

The previous instalment  - Avengers: Infinity War - was hailed by critics and audiences alike, but it's the ending which truly made an impression. Joe and Anthony Russo concluded the film on such shocking terms, in fact, after that we really have no idea what to expect from their forthcoming blockbuster. It's all been kept firmly under wraps, as the directors have proven that they have the ability to completely surprise the masses provided the opportunity. We want to go into Avengers: Endgame and be overwhelmed with shock, but sadly, some recently surfaced footage may jeopardise this. 

Unfortunately, the Russo brothers have had to issue a statement on their Twitter, warning those who have seen leaked footage to keep it to themselves:

Of course, it's very important to those that have sacrificed years to work on the project that its surprises are concealed. Honestly, it's understandable that some fans are already departing from social media until they've seen the film. There's always someone ready to spoil the fun, but it's actually pretty surprising that footage has leaked, considering how under wraps plot elements have been up until now. For the biggest film in the world, it remains admirably mysterious. 

As noted by The Guardian, footage has been found on the likes of YouTube and Reddit, although such videos have since been taken down. Of course, most of us won't be interested in what they revealed; we'd rather witness it all unravel on the screen come April 25.

The Russo's tweet emphasises just how important it is that audiences in the know keep quiet, but this could actually be just one big warning. Perhaps the footage hasn't revealed key plot points, but the Russo's are simply using this incident to scare us all away from spoilers - to scare us away from looking. Now audiences know that the truth's out there, they won't just avoid looking, they'll fear to stumble across it. #DontSpoilTheEndgame
