JBy pulling out a page from the Green Goblin’s playbook, Marvel Studios wants to unmask Reddit users who helped leak 63 pages of dialogue from last month Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Marvel filed a petition on Friday, asking the court to subpoena Reddit in hopes of compelling the site to fork the names of moderators from the appropriate title r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers, a subreddit dedicated to uncovering the overly convoluted storylines of Marvel movies before they hit the big screen.
The file says “on or about January 20,” a 63-page transcript of dialogue from quanumania found himself online, appearing on a Google Doc and the r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers subreddit. torrent monster reported that “the script was modified and/or displayed in a Portuguese web interface” and speculated that the document was used for subtitles. Aaround the time the dialogue appeared online, the entire plot of the film was leaked, helping to corroborate the document’s role by possibly spoiling MODOK’s role in the film. Although nothing can prepare fans for what it would look like. Nonetheless, Redditors were impressed with the leak at the time, calling it “a next-level leak” and “legit might be the biggest leak in this sub history.”
Now Marvel is slamming her fists on her desk and yelling at the lawyers to find those spoiled spoilers and bring them photos of Spider-Man. In the request, Marvel wants Reddit to share “all credentials of user ‘u/MSSmods'”, a shared account used by mods on the subreddit. However, Marvel does not share hair. The studio requests “any information provided when an infringing user created their Reddit account, including name(s), address(es), phone number(s), email address(es); ( b) any IP address used by that user; and (c) account number(s).
Reddit has yet to respond to the request. “Reddit is committed to protecting the privacy of our users”, a Reddit rep said Variety“We have rigorous processes in place to assess legal requests and object to them where appropriate. »
Meanwhile, Marvel also filed a DMCA subpoena against Google because someone shared the document in a Google Doc. However, Variety notes that this isn’t the first time Marvel has asked Reddit and Google to take down the leaked documents. Alwayswe haven’t seen so much unmasking since the end of Spiderman 2.
