Brie Larson’s method for preventing Avengers: Endgame spoilers was pretty intense


Brie Larson shared how she manages to avoid telling spoilers about Avengers: Endgame. It may be a surprising method, but it gets the job done.

If there’s one mistake Marvel actors don’t want to make, it’s accidentally spilling a spoiler. We’ve seen it before, with Mark Ruffalo and Tom Holland being suspects number one and two. And it must be the job of every other Marvel actor to make sure they don’t fail so badly as those two, no matter what it takes.

Out of the massive list of actors in the MCU, Brie Larson seems to be one of the people who is actively making sure she doesn’t give away Marvel’s vault of secrets. Speaking with USA Today, she revealed that she had a particularly interesting method of making sure she wouldn’t give away spoilers while filming Avengers: Endgame. And if you ever want to be in a Marvel movie yourself, you might want to take notes.

For Larson, the best way to make sure you can’t give away spoilers is — drumroll, please — making sure you don’t remember what you filmed! This seemed to be the best way for Larson to make sure she couldn’t give anything away, because how could you reveal something if you don’t know about it in the first place? In the USA Today story, Larson said:

"I just never wanted to feel like I was going to slip up or that I was going to say the wrong thing. I was like, “I can’t live with myself being the one that spoils something.” So I really just deleted it.I tried my best to journal it if I want to recall it and go, “Oh yeah, that was a crazy time.” And I’m excited when the movie comes out to finally be able to talk about it and go, “Yes, this was crazy.” But my family doesn’t know. I haven’t talked to anybody about anything because I’m just a very diligent secret-keeper."

Deleting everything that you just did from your memory might be a bit intense, but if it helps her keep her job, we’re all for it. The world needs so much more Carol Danvers in their life, even if it means Larson will have to alter her memories like the Kree did to Carol.

In the interview, Larson also explained how she had worked on Avengers: Endgame before working on her solo movie, Captain Marvel, despite her solo film coming out a month before Endgame. Call it a lucky break, though, because she had the support of all the other Marvel film veterans on set with her. She explained by saying:

"I just got to be like junior superhero and ask them questions like, “Hi, I’m the new kid! So what kind of protein bars do you eat and when do you train? Is your costume comfortable?”"

Between Larson’s methods to avoid telling spoilers and the mix-matched filming schedule of her movies, we have a feeling those movies will be just as surprising for her as they are for us.

But, we are getting a bit suspicious, seeing as even the other MCU actors who were in Infinity War barely knew what the movie was about. During press time, a handful of the main actors shared they weren’t exactly sure how the movie would play out, since they were given false scripts. But maybe (just maybe) the Marvel execs have been training those actors to forget their scenes, too.

Okay, we’ll take off our tinfoil hats and put that theory in the “conspiracy” pile. Although, it is comforting to know that the actors sometimes know just as much as we do when it comes to these movies. It makes the twists and turns all the more better.
