The entire movie was posted online shortly after its release in China and hours before its release in the United States, according to TorrentFreak, a blog dedicated to reporting news about file sharing and copyright infringement.
According to the website, “dozens of exclusively China-located users” started sharing a 1.2-gigabyte torrent of the movie, with the only consolation for Marvel being the fact that the recording was of a very poor quality.
"The image flickers constantly throughout. It’s semi-rotated and is littered throughout with watermarks for a gambling site that spin around the screen," a source told the blog.
News of this development quickly spread across social media, with a number of netizens either complaining about it or urging others to not spoil the movie for those who didn’t watch it yet.

Last week, a five-minute-long pirated clip of the movie, which looked like a recording made during a screening of the film, also emerged online, prompting the Russo brothers, the directors of “Avengers: Endgame”, to issue a letter urging fans to keep spoilers to themselves.
