Moviegoers headed to the theaters this weekend in troves to see “Avengers: Endgame” which broke box office records. But please don’t spoil it for those who haven’t seen the film yet … or you risk the possibility of getting punched.

According to reports one man tried to ruin the movie for fans waiting in line at a cinema in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, by yelling out major plots point. Some in the line didn’t appreciate the prank and the man was left bloodied, according to a story in Deadline, which referenced reports by Taiwanese media.

A photo of the man was posted online and shows him with blood coming from his head, according to Deadline.

Before the film opened Marvel Studios filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo pleaded with fans not to post photos or spoilers to social media.

“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,” the Russos said in a statement posted to Instagram.

The Russos posted another note to Twitter last week stressing, “Enjoy the journey and don’t spoil the Endgame.”

“Avengers: Endgame,” the 22st movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, shattered the record for biggest opening weekend with an estimated $350 million in ticket sales in the U.S. and $1.2 billion globally.
