One teacher is going to great lengths to ensure that his students don’t spoil Avengers: Endgame. One of his students, Twitter user @kamiilious, posted a sign that her teacher posted on his classroom door. Due to a sense of a familial obligation and a poorly timed business trip, the teacher has yet to see Endgame and he is not interested in having the ending spoiled
“DO NOT discuss ANYTHING about it anywhere near my classroom UNTIL THIS SIGN COMES DOWN,” the sign reads in part.
The sign, which looks to be printed from a Microsoft Word document on a school printer, has gone viral, as many people can relate to the teacher’s desperation. As spoilers go, it’s hard to imagine the stakes ever being higher.
Endgame isn’t a mere sequel or the end of a trilogy; it’s the culmination of 21 films and 11 years of filmmaking, a significant investment of time, money, and emotion that an offhand comment by, say, a teenager in a classroom could spoil.
Despite the universality of the emotion the teacher was expressing —#DontSpoilTheEndgame has been trending all weekend — some folks reacted negatively to the note, presumably because of how it ends.
“You know how much I love Marvel Comics. So help me Jeebus, if any one of you spoils a single frame of this movie for me, I promise I will make you wish that Thanos snapped your narrow a**.”
The original post has since been deleted, but @kamiilious posted a follow-up in response to those who were offended by her teacher’s note, which to us seems pretty obviously tongue-in-cheek to us.
WE TOOK NO OFFENSE TO WHAT THE TEACHER SAID. SO PLEASE STOP SAYING ITS BULLYING OR WHATSOEVER. ITS ALL HUMOR GUYS!
