Dealing with Infinity Wars Spoilers
BY VALERIE DEL REAL
The day has come, Avengers: Infinity War has been out for a while, but you finally have the time to go watch it. Though it’s been difficult, you’ve managed to avoid most spoilers concerning the movie. Until someone, knowingly or not, spoils the movie for you.
Everyone has that one friend. The one who can’t keep themselves from spoiling the movie you’ve really been wanting to see. Such is the tragic case of Mariana Mondragon, a sophomore in the Health Science & Environment small school. “I know she didn’t mean to do it. She just needed to rant out all their feelings caused by the movie and I just so happened to be close by,” Mondragon said.
“I’ve pretty much given up when it comes to avoiding spoilers from Drea. My only hope to avoid spoilers is to watch the movie before her,” said Mondragon. For Avengers: Infinity War Part II, Mondragon hopes to watch it before Drea gets the chance to.
If you don’t have that kind of friend, you may be that friend. “I find it funny to see their faces after I spoil part of the movie for them,” said Carolina Islas, a freshman in the Visual and Performing Arts small school.
“They may jokingly say they hate me, but I know they don’t mind too much as long as it’s not a major spoiler,” said Islas. Islas doesn’t plan on stopping her fun anytime soon as not all of their friends have seen Infinity War.
There are only so many ways to avoid spoilers. “I usually avoid social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, or Tumblr that I know for sure will spoil the movie for me. I have to make sure I tell my friends to avoid talking about the movie if I haven’t seen it,” said Juan Pichardo, a freshman in the Justice, Law and Service small school. If all goes well, Pichardo manages to avoid most if not all spoilers.
The journey to avoid spoilers may be a difficult one, but the reward of seeing the movie in its full glory is worth the trouble for most.
