Avengers: Endgame movie spoilers have been reduced on social media thanks to QR codes.
In this day and age it’s difficult to avoid spoilers of popular movies and TV shows, but dedicated Marvel fans have done their best to respect other fans who have yet to see Avengers: Endgame by creating Endgame QR codes. These quick response codes created by fans allow them to share their thoughts about the movie without outright spoiling the film on social channels.
The QR codes created by fans reveal how much they’ve honored the directors’ request to not spoil the movie.
Avengers: Endgame is the sequel to last year’s Avengers: Infinity War and is the final chapter in the 11-year Marvel franchise, which first kicked off with Iron Man back in 2008. Prior to the movie’s release, the directors, Joe and Anthony Russo, beseeched fans not to spoil the film for those who have not yet seen it.
Impressively, with the exception of a few who carelessly tweeted out major spoilers, the vast majority of fans have mostly honored the directors’ request. They’ve done so by either not sharing spoilers or by sharing their thoughts on the movie’s events through Endgame QR codes they’ve uploaded to social channels, most notably Twitter.

Fans are literally talking in code through Endgame QR codes to avoid spoiling the film for fellow Marvel movie lovers.
When scanned, some of these QR codes that are being custom created by fans translate to one or multiple sentences about the movie. These sentences range from reactions to events to theories to hot takes, notes The Daily Dot.
Fans who have created the unique 2D barcodes have shared with others that the Twitter app includes a QR code scanner that allows for the codes to be uploaded. That being said, anyone who wants to join in the fun will find that there are many QR code reader apps available for both iPhone and Android.
While it is likely that fans will begin to openly talk about spoilers in the coming weeks, at the moment it’s nice to see so many of them choosing not to spoil the film for others, which has only been in theaters since April 26.
Anyone who would like to find the Endgame QR codes can find them on Twitter. However, do remember that if you haven’t yet seen the movie and don’t want it spoiled, it’s best to avoid scanning them!
