While Instagram stories typically disappear after 24 hours, the leak was immediately discovered by a senior Disney paralegal. Therefore, witnessing panic at Studio, Marvel went to court in California, over intellectual property rights since the Captain America 4 footage was posted without authorization. Although CanWeGetSomeToast isn’t a newcomer scooper, Marvel’s decision to take action now suggests that the latest leak must have been particularly concerning.
