The directors of Avengers: Endgame have explained why toy leaks usually do not spoil anything about a movie.
Recently, Joe and Anthony Russo sat down with Collider and spoke more about Avengers: Endgame and the toy leak images that feature our beloved heroes. While speaking about the film, the directors did not seem to be worried with the toy images that have leaked. The directors went more into the images by explaining how most of the time they are not accurate. Here’s what Joe Russo had to say on the matter:
“What’s interesting about toy leaks is that 99 percent of the time they’re not accurate because toys are, frankly, tailored to either old concepts or completely different concepts than what’s in the movie.”
It seems that the directors are not worried at all about the toy releases, but they did praise the visual effects team for helping contain spoilers. Trailers for Marvel projects have scenes play in a different way than they actually take place in the films by not having surprise characters or details present. This way of keeping spoilers from being released has been seen in previous Marvel films like Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. Here’s what Joe Russo added onto the story about leaks:
“Frankly, the very essential nature of the storytelling is contained within the brains and computers of all the great individuals working in all the effects houses on the movie, that is with much more sensitive material, and the testament to that industry is there’s a code of ethics there, and a lot of sensitive information — at least on the four movies we’ve worked on has passed through all these companies, and nothing has ever leaked.’
With fans only getting glimpses of what could be a 3-hour-long movie there might not be much that could be predicted until the film’s release. Fans can rest assured that the cast and crew of the film are working hard to keeping spoilers away from audiences.

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
