Marvel, which is owned by Disney, is notoriously secretive about its projects and was none too pleased when large chunks of Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania’s dialogue found their way online. Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania premiered last month, but not before dozens of pages of dialogue were posted online and revealed key story details.
The 63-page transcript was shared as a Google Docs file on a Reddit community page dedicated to sharing and discussing leaks and rumors about Marvel films before they hit cinemas.
Marvel, which is owned by Disney, is notoriously secretive about its projects.
In a bid to find out who was behind the leak, Disney has asked a California court to issue a subpoena compelling Google and Reddit to share any “identifying information” they have about the account responsible.
The court filings have been made by a Disney subsidiary called MVL Film Finance, which says the transcript was posted “on or about” 20 January.
Quantumania, the third Ant-Man film starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, was released on 17 February.
The transcript was posted on the MarvelStudiosSpoilers subreddit by an account called MSSmods, which is shared among the community’s moderators. It featured a translation of the film’s Portuguese subtitles, Variety reports, though not in chronological order.
