  • Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War,” posted a letter to fans on Twitter Tuesday urging them to keep the film’s story a secret when they see it.
  • They said “only a handful of people know the film’s true plot.”
  • Fans are freaking out about it.

Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War,” posted a cryptic letter to fans on Twitter Tuesday asking them to not spoil the film’s story once they see it, and revealing that “only a handful of people know the film’s true plot.”

The letter, tweeted with the hashtag “#ThanosDemandsYourSilence,” urges fans to not post spoilers so “all fans can have an equal experience when they watch it for the first time.”

The letter, especially that tidbit about the film’s plot, implies there are some major twists in store for audiences – and people on the internet reacted accordingly:

There has been speculation that some fan favourite characters may not be safe in “Infinity War,” which is potentially why the directors want to keep the story such a secret. Based on some Marvel comics storylines, it’s likely some characters could die.

Captain America, for instance, died following the comic version of “Civil War,” and actor Chris Evans has implied that he is ready to retire from the character.

Fans will be able to find out the film’s true plot – and the reason for the secrecy – when it hits theatres on April 27.
