The reviews for Avengers: Endgame—the final installment in a decade-long run of Marvel films—have already landed. The movie itself hits thousands of theaters Thursday night. All of which means that the internet is about to become a very treacherous place for anyone who doesn't want to know the ending before they've seen it for themselves.

(My personal list currently includes: "Avengers," "Endgame," "Thanos," "Marvel," "#AvengersEndgame," and "quantum," in case the quantum realm plays a major role in the denouement. I suspect it's not enough, but it's a start.) Conveniently, you can also set a timer for how long you want to mute...
