Created from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the last film in the Avengers saga, Endgame is a follow-up to the events of Infinity War, which ended with Thanos obliterating half of all life in the universe with a snap of his finger.
Endgame also fell prey to piracy as a camera print of the film was leaked by Tamilrockers within a few hours of it's release. While the directors issued an open letter to fans urging them to not reveal spoilers, Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige had expressed his disappointment on the subject. “I wasn’t pleased. It’s not cool. It’s not fun. But the response was what I expected, which was everybody turning it off, dismissing it, ‘Don’t watch it, don’t spoil it for anybody else,'” Feige told The Associated Press.
