Makers of highly-anticipated films and series like ‘Avengers’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ go up to any length to entertain the audience, even if it means including some fake footage in teasers or specially-released videos before it actually airs. 

Confirming that ‘Avengers: The Endgame’ trailers might have featured fake footage, the makers, Russo Brothers have revealed details about the impending film. In an interview with Rotten Tomatoes, the Russo brothers said their intent behind keeping the plot under wraps was to take the load off the stars who face probing queries from the press about the film's storyline."Maybe. Maybe it's all fake. Maybe there's not a real frame in that whole trailer?" Anthony teased.

He had earlier pleaded fans to not spoil the movie by giving away storylines after reports had surfaced that some scenes had leaked online.

"Part of our motivation to do that is that it just takes a lot of pressure off of people, because it is hard to constantly censor yourself, about what you're saying and how you talk. We take a lot of pressure off of people by saying, 'Ok, the less you know the less you have to mind yourself'," he added.

Joe of the Anthony-Joe duo said that they were extra careful about ‘Endgame’ as it contains a lot more spoilers than its predecessor ‘Infinity War’. He said, "We kept it going even more so than 'Endgame'. There are more secrets in 'Endgame' than there are 'Infinity War'.”

The film will be releasing on April 26 in India. Meanwhile, it will release in China on April 24, much before it releases in the US too. 

On another note, there is an Indian connect to the upcoming film as A R Rahman has composed songs for the Indian versions of 'Avengers: Endgame'.
