'Avengers: Endgame', the 22nd movie to emerge from the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the latest victim of online piracy with the movie getting leaked hours before its official release in US on April 24. A poor quality camera-recorded print has been released on sites such as PirateBay and TamilRockers. As per reports, the leak is said to have originated in China as it released two days ahead of the United States. However, what remains to be seen is if this leak will take a hit on the film's box office collections. Reports also suggest that Marvel went to extreme lengths to safeguard this film from piracy. Hard copies of scripts were never made and the full script was made available only in three iPads. Only Robert Downey Jr aka Iron Man is said to have had access to full script. Meanwhile, Marvel’s social media accounts have been urging fans to keep the spoilers to themselves.
