It’s no secret that our beloved Tom Holland is notorious for spilling the secrets of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Russo Brothers have gone to extreme lengths to keep Avengers: Endgame under wraps, going as far as to hand out fake scripts to the cast of the film. However, when it comes to the Spider-Man actor, extra precautions have to be taken.
While the rest of the Marvel cast were given a few pages of the script at a time, Holland was left in the dark.
Holland has a reputation for spilling some of Marvel’s cinematic secrets, so much so that even HE fell for a spoof article claiming he had uploaded the entire Avengers: Endgame film online.
It wouldn’t be the first time Spider-Man has done something like this. He’s exposed a fair share of Marvel spoilers before, which led to him getting paired off in interviews with Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange).
It’s because of Holland’s loose lips that the Russo Brothers did not give the actor a copy of the scripts for the two-part Avengers film. According to ComicBook.com, Joe Russo confirmed that “Spoiler-Man” was only given his lines and was not told who he was fighting in an attempt to keep the actor in the dark.
“Yeah, Tom Holland does not get the script. Tom Holland gets his lines and that’s it,” Russo said at the Indian Anthem Launch. “He doesn’t even know who he’s acting opposite of. We’ll just, we use like very vague terms to describe to him what is happening in the scene, because he has a very difficult time keeping his mouth shut.”
Prior to the release of Infinity War, Holland elaborated on the situation.
“I remember for Avengers, the Russo Brothers are like ‘so you’re just standing here, and you’re fighting this guy and just do whatever,’ and I’m like, ‘okay, who am I fighting?’” Holland said.
“And they were like ‘well, we can’t tell you because it’s a secret.’ I’m like, ‘okay so what does he look like?’ And they’re like ‘well, we can’t tell you because that would give it away,’ so I’m like ‘how big is he?’ ‘Well, we can’t tell you because that would give it away.’ So, I’m just standing there punching the air for 15 minutes and when I took the job I didn’t think that’s what I’d be doing. I’ve gotten used to it now.”
It’s not confirmed that Spider-Man will be making an appearance in the upcoming Endgame film, but we’re continuing to keep our fingers crossed.
Meanwhile, we’re preparing to grab those Avengers: Endgame tickets after the ticket onsale date was reportedly revealed.
The movie hits theaters April 26. You can check out the official trailer below.
