While the directors of Avengers: Infinity War have requested that fans refrain from sharing spoilers and suggested those who haven't seen it to avoid social media, that hasn't stopped some fans from taking to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Anthony and Joseph Russo took to Twitter to address fans directly via the villain Thanos and, for the most part, fans have obliged.

Details of the new Marvel film have been a closely guarded secret with the directors joking (we think) about giving Spider Man star, Tom 'loose-lips' Holland, a different script.

The film also stars Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr, Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana as well as Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman and Letitia Wright, while our own Tom Vaughan Lawlor plays villain Ebony Maw.  At one point it reportedly features over 40 Marvel characters in one scene.
