Earlier this year, someone on the Marvel Studios Spoilers subreddit, a community dedicated to upcoming Marvel productions, posted the mother of all MCU leaks. One month before the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, a user named MSSmods shared a 63-page Google Doc transcript of dialogue from the film. Now, Disney wants to know who was behind the leak and is trying to force Reddit and Google to identify the person or group of people responsible.
As first reported torrentfreak, Disney’s MVL Film Finance unit, a subsidiary the company established to support Marvel Studios productions, filed two Digital Millennium Copyright Act subpoena requests designed to force Reddit and Google to identify who was behind it. of the filtration. As MSSmods is a shared account between the moderators of r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers, Reddit complying with the application would involve the company identifying more than one person. In addition, Disney requested that Google and Reddit share any “identifying information” they have about MSSmods, including names, phone numbers, and IP addresses, along with details about any users who may have been involved in posting, editing, or uploading the content. filtration.
Reddit did not say if it intends to follow through on the app. “Reddit is committed to protecting the privacy of our users. We have rigorous processes in place to review legal requests and object where appropriate,” a Reddit spokesperson told Engadget, noting the company’s legal request guidelines. Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
It’s unclear what Disney plans to do, if anything, regarding the source of the leak, possibly a subtitle provider or an independent translator. The document that MSSmods shared was a translation of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’s Subtitles in Portuguese, with some of the dialogue not presented in chronological order.
