Marvel Leakers Face Legal Battle Against Disney For Spoiling MCU Films

Marvel Studios has been keeping the future of the MCU lowkey, especially given that they’re still in the middle of panning out the Marvel Phases. Kickstarting off with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania this Marvel Phase 5, most MCU fans had already been exposed to some leaked spoilers ahead of its release.

As you may be well aware, the billion dollar franchise is quite sensitive when it comes to keeping spoilers off the public eye until they officially unveil their plans, leading them to reconstruct an anti-leaking policy almost recently this year. It’s no secret that Marvel Studios has been battling with leakers for quite some time, but leakers responsible for posting the full Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania script had gone too far for the studio.

It is unclear as to when the subreddits will open up again to the public.

Marvel is taking extreme measures in dealing with spoiler leakers, despite the shortlived script leak. However, Captain America: New World Order star Anthony Mackie did note on how Marvel’s privacy policy had drastically changed to prevent further spoilers from their own employees, so it is all the more natural to keep non-employees out of their hair before they get their hands on more MCU future spoilers.

As for whether or not this measure would be proven effective, only time can tell.
