Lately, Disney+ has been producing a lot more original content, but it seems that spoilers are becoming an issue.
With new TV series episodes constantly being pumped out on the platform each week on Wednesdays and Fridays, there is always something new for subscribers to watch. Following the success of WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Marvel’s newest series that fans cannot get enough of is Loki!
After starring in many Thor and Avengers-based films, the lovable “villain” and God of Mischief now has his own show, and fans cannot get enough. Loki’s first episode debut, “Glorious Purpose,” received the most first-day views than any other Disney+ show, so much so that Disney shifted premiere days for many of their upcoming shows to Wednesday to garner similar results audiences.
The show, which is a part of Phase Four within the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), is now coming to a close this week as the final episode is gearing up to air, and it looks like Marvel is trying to prevent people from spoiling the ending. Marvel Studios Canada (@MarvelStudiosCA) Tweeted:

Considering that Loki drops every Wednesday on Disney+, it is not like a regular TV show that makes the viewer tune in at a certain time each week. Because the show is streamed, viewers can watch the show on their own time, depending on when they are available on their schedule. This means some may see the show first, and unfortunately, sometimes that can ruin the ending for others if spoilers are posted.
Now that the final episode is coming, and fans are excited to see what comes of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino), it’s a clear Marvel does not want people posting about the ending until fans have had a chance to see it. If anything, this warning may mean that we are sure to expect something explosive that fans will want to talk about.
How long do you think it is acceptable until viewers can start talking about a show after it airs?
