* DC Comics released preview artwork for the cover of 'Countdown to ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis' that showed the death of a major DC character in silhouette, detailed to the point where the silhouette's profile was easily recognizable as Nightwing. The actual death in question (and the actual cover of the comic when released) was Ted Kord, the ComicBook/BlueBeetle.

* David Prowse (the actor in the Vader suit) did not say, "I am your father," while ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' was being filmed. He actually said, "Obi-Wan killed your father." James Earl Jones said the real line for dubbing, and Mark Hamill was told the real line just before filming as a form of EnforcedMethodActing.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' animated several takes on "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsWhoShotMrBurns Who Shot Mr. Burns?]]", even though only a few of them could have been guilty - there was a gunshot, and Principal Skinner's gun had a silencer; Moe had a shotgun, which would've killed Burns, and Apu is shown using an automatic weapon that still leaves just one wound. They also shot a full alternate summation where Smithers goes through his whole MotiveRant, and it's explained how all the clues could have added up to Smithers being the culprit. [[spoiler: It was Maggie, by the way.]]
** There were also some brief, insane shots of various Springfieldians killing Burns, including Santa's Little Helper!
** "[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Of course for that ending to work you would have to ignore all the Simpson DNA evidence]], and that would be downright nutty!"
** They mentioned on the {{DVD Commentary}} for part 2 that they intentionally tried to leak the Smithers ending to the media, but they couldn't find a news source that was dishonest enough.

Multiple resolutions of a CliffHanger or other point of suspense are filmed. Only one is the "true" resolution, intending to be shown. The others are designed to foil spies and spoilers.

spoilers in the event of the dreaded ContentLeak.




to:

* For ''Series/GameOfThrones'', after the ContentLeak that hit HBO in Season 7, the execs decided to film several endings, the true one of which would only be added very close to the actual air date so as to prevent spoilers as much as possible. How many of which were filmed exactly has yet to be revealed, but according to Creator/KitHarington, it's at least a few hours' worth.

* During the first arc of Creator/JossWhedon's ''Comicbook/AstonishingXMen'', artist John Cassiday released a picture he pencilled of a fiery bird on his blog, and then removed the picture abruptly, prompting a number of fans to suspect that Whedon would be resurrecting Comicbook/JeanGrey during the first arc. Instead, the resurrected X-Man during the arc was Comicbook/{{Colossus}}.

* A random internet poster once said something to the effect of "I have this idea for a book with 9 alternate endings which will be released simultaneously, and when people realise there's conflicts in their different versions and start cataloguing them, I'll admit there's multiple endings but say that I wrote 10 different ones and watch as they go nuts trying to find the missing one.", which was quickly followed by a (humorous) response saying a variation of "[[YouBastard You]] MagnificentBastard!". (While Administrivia/ThereIsNoSuchThingAsNotability, [[YouKnowThatShow if anyone knows the source of this one]], please edit in the quotes and a link [[RuleOfFunny for general enjoyment]] as the above [[DontExplainTheJoke is forced to explain the joke]].)

Then when they figured it out I would ‘come clean’, telling them that I had released eleven alternate endings which will be released simultaneously, and when people realise there's conflicts in their different versions and start cataloguing them, I'll admit there's multiple endings but say that I wrote 10 different ones and watch them panic again as they go nuts trying all try to find the missing one.", which was quickly followed by a (humorous) response saying a variation of "[[YouBastard You]] MagnificentBastard!".

** The initial recording of the scene where Missy claimed to be a robot called the '''M'''obile '''I'''ntelligence '''S'''ystem '''I'''nterface instead had her claim that she was a '''R'''andom '''A'''ccess '''N'''eural '''I'''nterface, so that if word ''did'' get out that she was an new incarnation of a Gallifreyan villain, there'd at least be some confusion as to which one. Again, to Moffat's annoyance, nobody noticed.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'': The first new-series finale "Bad Wolf"/"The Parting of the Ways" was filmed with an alternate ending where Rose died, which was to be sent to critics instead of the real ending, but Creator/RussellTDavies thought it was too inferior to the real ending to use.

** The scripts to "The Day of the Doctor" apparently referred to the War Doctor as "Omega", the villain from "The Three Doctors". Creator/StevenMoffat was very disappointed when this nonsense wasn't leaked.

* Creator/{{Disney}} has used this trope a few times to hide spoilers in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. For example, a special preview of ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' was screened at D23 2017, which featured foiler footage where [[spoiler:Thor has both eyes intact and is not wearing an eyepatch]], as using the real footage would have spoiled [[spoiler:Thor losing his right eye]] in the then-unreleased ''Film/ThorRagnarok''.

''Film/ThorRagnarok''. Trailers for the previous ''Avengers'' film, ''[[Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron Age of Ultron]]'', were also carefully edited to omit Comicbook/ScarletWitch and Comicbook/{{Quicksilver}} from the final battle, likely to avoid spoiling the fact that they switch sides and join the Avengers during the final act of the movie.
