A man was reportedly attacked outside a cinema after revealing the plot of Avengers: Endgame to fans who were queueing for the epic movie.
According to AsiaOne, the man was left with facial injuries after being attacked outside a cinema in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong.
Photos posted online show him receiving treatment while sitting on a blood spattered pavement outside the cinema.
Avengers fans are thought to have attacked the man after he loudly shouted the plot while they waited to enter the theater.

The man’s questionable decision comes after directors Joe and Anthony Russo pleaded with fans to not reveal the plot in an open letter.
“This is it. This is the end. The end of an unprecedented narrative mosaic spanning eleven years and eleven franchises,” they wrote.

“…When you see Endgame in the coming weeks, please don’t spoil it for others, the same way you wouldn’t want it spoiled for you.”
Yesterday, it was confirmed that the film had broken the global box office record after hauling in more than $1 billion in its opening weekend.
