‘Avengers: Endgame’ is a billion-dollar box office smash
Top Talkers: The sequel to ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ becomes the first film to pass $1 billion globally on its opening weekend, raking in an estimated $350 million in the U.S. and Canada alone.
“Avengers” star Chris Evans had a cheeky response when the Russo Brothers revealed the “spoilers ban” for their hit movie “Avengers: Endgame” will be ending soon.
“If you haven’t seen Endgame yet, see it this weekend. The spoiler ban lifts on Monday!” the tweet from the Russo Brothers reads, in part.
Evans, who plays Captain America in Marvel’s beloved “Avengers” film series, quickly responded to the tweet, writing: “Does this mean I can start posting set videos on Monday?”
CHRIS HEMSWORTH ON ENDING OF MARVEL’S ‘AVENGERS’ SERIES: ‘IT’S BITTERSWEET’
As of Friday afternoon, his response had 36,000 retweets and more than 300,000 likes. Though the actor isn’t technically allowed to have videos from set, (as it could result in leaks, per Mashable), fans were all about Evans sharing anything he may have.
“Share them coward,” one person wrote in response, later adding, “I hope you know I love you very much and I don’t think you’re [a] coward I just want the videos, Chris.”
“It would be great if you share them with us,” wrote another.
“Christopher… pics or it didn’t happen,” said third.
The news comes after Evans’ fellow “Avengers” castmate, Chris Pratt, took to Instagram this week to share a special moment from the movie’s set — even though he wasn’t allowed to.
“This is awesome,” Evans tweeted in response, noting he “may or may have not stolen a few cool videos too.”
