After successfully avoiding Infinity War spoilers following the film’s initial release, a Marvel fan was horrified to find a troll had filled his Instagram comments with every detail of the Avengers’ race to stop Thanos. Obviously, he was annoyed but what he did next is probably one of the most dedicated things I have ever heard of.
He shared his story on Reddit, where he explained how Infinity War had been ruined for him:
“As you may know, you can look up hashtags on Instagram and browse through posts using that hashtag. After I made the post, a random guy (who I assume was browsing the hashtag to find people who used it) randomly targeted me, and commented on my post a full list of everyone who died.
Knowing that there was another movie coming out in the franchise, the Marvel fan planned out a way to get back at the troll. He messaged the troll and pretended as if nothing was spoilt, but appreciated everything. The Marvel fan then pretended to befriend the troll, and for seven months basically spent most of his spare time ensuring the foundations for his revenge plot were solidified.
Finally, on April 25, 2019, Avengers: Endgame hit cinemas, and his long, drawn out plan could finally come into fruition. The Marvel fan bought tickets for the film’s midnight screening, and after making sure he was seeing it before his enemy, he set about snapping pictures of every major plot point in the film.
“It was all over in like 30 seconds, but he definitely saw it all. He cursed me out, saying I was a horrible person and stuff.”
I have to say, for someone who seems to be such a big Marvel fan, you’d think they’d listen to the Russo brothers and the cast when they requested people not to spoil the Endgame. But I must say, getting revenge on a troll sounds like a fun way to spend 7 months.
