Spoiler alert: Spouting off “Avengers: Endgame” spoilers might send your loved ones and fellow citizens into a Hulk-like rage.
Citing Taiwanese media reports, the online news site Asia One alleged that a crowd beat up a young man yelling Avengers spoilers outside a theatre in Hong Kong Friday night.
The story’s already gone viral, although it’s by no means been confirmed. The only evidence backing up the tale of vengeful Avengers fans is a single photo, reportedly posted on Hong Kong social media. The image depicts a man sitting against a wall, being tended to by onlookers. Not exactly concrete proof.

That being said, the issue of spoilers has persisted as fans awaited the highly anticipated superhero flick. “Avengers: Endgame” directors Anthony Russo and Joseph Russo penned an open letter to fans, asking them not to spoil the film for others.
