The first rule of Fight Club is you don't talk about Fight Club—a rule that should now perhaps apply to Avengers: Endgame. Fans have been going wild for what's said to be "the most fulfilling" Marvel movie yet, but in Hong Kong, some may have gone a little too wild, reportedly assaulting a man who blurted out spoilers on the flick outside a Causeway Bay theater. Asia One has a photo that's been circulating on social media, allegedly showing a guy who local media says came out of the three-hour showing and started giving away too much of the plot, infuriating others near the entrance.

The man was then reportedly physically attacked, though some are now wondering aloud if this really happened or was staged. Per the Independent, directors Anthony and Joe Russo tweeted out a short video with cast members begging fans, "Don't spoil the endgame," though it's likely they didn't anticipate anyone getting smacked down for doing so.
