So I'm sure at this point, you've probably discovered that Avengers: Infinity War has finally come out.
After 10 long years in the MCU, Infinity War has officially been released.
Now, don't worry. I'm not here to post spoilers. Though, if you haven't seen the movie at this point, I'm hard pressed to say that you're not a fan anyway. I'm just here to tell you the events leading up to the movie and how hard it is to avoid finding out the ending by accident.
First, I planned on attending the Marvel marathon where they were showing all of the movies leading up to Infinity War, but it didn't work out as planned because I had to work that day. And because of finding this out, we were forced to see the movie the day after opening day because the other days were completely sold out.
Which is understandable, but as someone that was freaking shaking before seeing this movie, it was definitely a big deal.
So here was the survival guide that I had to abide by.
1. Delete social media.
I'd like to think that most people in the world aren't horrible people, and most aren't going to try and ruin the movie for others on purpose. But, the other percentage of people that aren't the horrible people, well I can't speak for them. So Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and even Tumblr all had to be avoided from the time the movie came out till the time that I saw it.
2. Avoid people trying to talk to you about said movie
I've been talking about the movie at work for a while so most people know that I was very excited about it coming out. So after they see it, what are they going to try to do? Tell me everything that happened. Absolutely not! Not in this house.
3. Avoid Googling absolutely anything
I've made that mistake many times before. Before a new episode of Scandal or Grey's Anatomy comes out, I like to view the trailers one more time. Don't do that after a movie has been released. If you google anything like "Star Wars trailer", you're probably mistakenly going to get someone like "Star Wars Han Solo dies".
Fun fact: that's how Star Wars was ruined for me before I got a chance to watch that movie. I would say that I hope I didn't spoil it for you, but if you haven't seen it at this point, you weren't planning on it anyway.
That's the best way to survive the events leading up to the movie.
Now, surviving the actual movie? Well, I've already seen it, and let me tell you this...you won't.
