Anthony and Joe Russo say their letter to audiences ahead of "Avengers: Endgame" urging them not to spoil the film was to make sure fans were able to "experience the film".
Ahead of the film's release, the acclaimed directing duo - who helmed 'Avengers: Infinity War' -penned a letter to audiences asking them not to reveal any details of the highly-anticipated film to other fans before they'd had a chance to see the film, and later announced that the "ban" would be lifted a couple of weeks later.
Now, the filmmakers have insisted that although they know they can't "control the internet" the reason for their letter was an attempt to establish a "level of decorum" around the film and make sure fans were able to "experience the film".
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Anthony said their pleas were: "Just a reminder to people -- just be respectful of others and how they experience the film."
Joe continued: "This is the environment we live in now. We can't control the internet. It's its own monster.
