The cast of Avengers: Endgame have had to sit on a ton of spoilers for years, with much of the filming on the Marvel mega-blockbuster dating all the way back to 2017.
Directing duo Joe and Anthony Russo have now lifted the ban on discussing spoilers from the film, so many of the cast members have been unveiling some of their illicit behind-the-scenes pictures and videos.
There are, of course, Avengers: Endgame spoilers ahead...
Chris Pratt may have jumped the gun last week, with a video of almost the entire cast congregating during one day on set, but it seems another Chris had his camera out on the same day.
Video ban lifted! I guess I’m not the only one who broke the rules on this day of filming.

In addition to his video from one of the most crowded days on the Endgame set, Chris Evans also shared a picture featuring many of the original Avengers and a shot of himself and Chadwick Boseman in costume as Captain America and Black Panther.

The third of the Marvel Chrises - Thor actor Chris Hemsworth - also got in on the act, sharing footage of himself dancing at a special dinner organised by Robert Downey Jr during one of the days on set.
Jeremy Renner also shared a video from the lunch, with the cast recording a special video message for Scarlett Johansson, who wasn’t present.
The actors can be seen yelling “you blew it” at the camera.

Downey Jr himself also shared a selection of behind the scenes glimpses from the film.
These included a slow-motion depiction of himself grappling with Thanos over the Infinity Gauntlet and a rendition of Happy Birthday sung to celebrate the anniversary of the first Iron Man film.
The directors also got in on the act sharing a precious photo of Stan Lee who recorded his last ever MCU cameo for Endgame.
Just because the spoiler ban is lifting, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t treat your fellow humans with respect and dignity during discourse. Or that you should run around intentionally trying to spoil the movie for people who haven’t seen it...#BeKindOutThere#NuffSaid pic.twitter.com/MMl6bpXQ4P

Avengers: Endgame is currently exerting its superhuman dominance on the global box office, with the film becoming the fastest to crack the $2bn (£1.5bn) box office milestone.
It also leapfrogged James Cameron’s Titanic to become the second highest-grossing movie of all time, with Avatar’s formidable $2.8bn (£2.1bn) total now in its sights.
Critics have also expressed their love for the film, with its current Rotten Tomatoes approval score set at an impressive 95 per cent.
Joe and Anthony Russo announced that the ban on discussing spoilers for Avengers: Endgame lifted this Monday with the release of the new trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home, which features many details that spoil the biggest moments of Endgame.
