Those of you opposed to “Avengers: Endgame” spoilers can’t count on “The Daily Show” correspondent Roy Wood Jr. as an ally. On Monday’s episode, Wood told people freaking out that if they don’t want to be spoiled, “go see the movie. That’s it. I’m tired of the excuses.”
“Roy, it’s impossible for everyone to see a movie on opening weekend,” host Trevor Noah responded. “You have to be respectful of all the people who haven’t seen it yet.”
“Well, how am I supposed to know who hasn’t seen the movie yet? I want to talk about the movie,” Wood said.
But Wood had some helpful advice for spoilerphobes. “Here’s an idea,” he said. “When you introduce yourself to somebody, tell them how far along you are in your favorite shows. Like right at the end, after you tell your gender pronouns.”
He then demonstrated it to Noah, introducing himself with: “Hello, I am Roy. He/Him, ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6.”
Noah then tried it out on himself. “Hello, I’m Trevor. He/him, ‘Breaking Bad’ Season 2.” That admission rubbed Wood the wrong way, however. “Season 2? Don’t get attached. They all die.”
Noah protested that Wood had just spoiled the whole show for him, but Wood wasn’t having it. “That’s another thing,” he continued. “If it’s been five years, we didn’t spoil it. You took too long. You can’t expect me to keep quiet on some s— you should have known by now.”
Wood then rattled off key spoilers for three works even older than “Breaking Bad.”
“Darth Vader is Luke’s Father. Fredo gets whacked. And Kevin Spacey was the bad guy all along.”
“Roy, Roy, I haven’t watched ‘The Usual Suspects,’” Noah said in response to that last reveal. “Oh no, I’m talking about Kevin Spacey in real life,” Wood said.
There’s more, including Wood’s assertion that you still shouldn’t be a “d— about it” when it comes to spoilers. Watch the whole thing above.
