Matthew Lavoie wasn’t going to let spoilers ruin the latest instalment of the Avengers movie series.
The Inuvik, N.W.T. resident travelled 1,100 km to Yellowknife to see Avengers: Endgame, according to CBC News. The lack of a movie theatre in his town has pushed him to make the pilgrimage a number of times over the years.
“We’ve got nowhere to go to see them,” he told CBC. “By the time a movie comes out on film, you’ve seen all the spoilers, you know everything that’s been said about the film itself, and it kind of ruins it.”
Lavoie said he typically flies down on airline points and stays with his sister to make the trip affordable.
Avengers: Endgame has made more than US $1.7 billion worldwide since it opened last weekend. The movie was the last chapter in the 22-film Marvel series that started back in 2008 with Iron Man.
Lavoie said that if he was going to make the trip for any film, it would be this one. He told CBC he has been watching the series since he was a teenager, and that the end of the story could be an emotional experience.
“You’ve been watching these same actors being in these films for years now… and you almost think there’s going to be a next one,” he said.
“But this is it. It’s the final one.”
