Infinity War’ actors got fake scripts to avoid spoilers
As the company behind both Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney knows all about safeguarding spoilers. Secrecy was so high on Avengers: Infinity War that even the cast – you know, the literal Avengers – were given red herrings just to be safe.
Paul Bettany, who plays Vision, told Hey U Guys that he and other actors received scripts with false plot points and scenes that were ultimately never shot.
“The secrecy around this film extended, this time, to the cast,” Bettany said. “I mean, really, it was crazy. We read scripts that were fake scripts and then they had fake twists and scenes that never were shot and you’d talk to the director and they’d say ‘all of that stuff at the end? Not happening.’”
That doesn’t mean the actors will be out doing a press tour and not knowing what happens in the movie. Since the directors came clean to Bettany, they probably did the same to the rest of the cast once shooting wrapped. Will we ever get to see those fake scripts, though…?
Avengers: Infinity War releases April 27.
