Directors Joe and Anthony Russo discussed to Empire Magazine via ComingSoon.net on Monday, March 18, how they are avoiding spoilers at all costs in the trailer.

Joe shared that in editing the trailer, different shots that are not in the film were used.

“The thing that’s most important to us is that we preserve the surprise of the narrative,” he explained, citing “The Empire Strikes Back” as an example of a movie trailer that inspired excitement without revealing the plot.

He noted previously in a 2018 episode on the Happy Sad Confused podcast that they have to outsmart audiences who can predict what will happen in a movie from the trailer alone. The directors had this in mind when creating the trailer for “Avengers: Infinity War.”

“So at our disposal are lots of different shots that aren’t in the movie that we can manipulate through CG (computer graphics) to tell a story that we want to tell specifically for the purpose of the trailer and not for the film,” he said.

Some eagle-eyed fans already expressed suspicions of characters being edited out when the trailer aired last month.

Soon, the mystery will be unraveled when “Endgame” hits theaters in April.  Niña V. Guno /ra
