New Delhi, Apr 25: The much-awaited Avengers: Endgame has become the latest victim of piracy. According to reports, a 'poor quality' camera-recorded print of Avengers: Endgame is now available on infamous piracy website TamilRockers and PirateBay a day before its release.
The leak is said to have originated in China, where the film opened two days ahead of the US, on April 24.
It is said that it began appearing online between 4 and 5 pm China time. Within minutes of the file appearing online, 'dozens of exclusively China-located users' began sharing it.
Robert Downey Jr posted a tweet hours later, urging fans not to spoil the film. "Keep those spoilers to yourself..." he wrote.
