Tom Holland is known for dolling out Marvel movies spoilers by the dozen. So much that as a new marketing strategy Marvel Studios used that as a promotional tool for announcing Spider-Man: Far From Home.
The Spider-Man: Homecoming star was paired with fellow Brit and Doctor Strange star Benedict Cumberbatch for press junkets, show appearances and what have you.
Cumberbatch has become a pro in keeping secrets since his Sherlock days. He also managed to keep all the details about his outing as Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness. The experience came in handy while taking care of the young one.
Joe Russo once said Benedict is a great partner for him on the press tour. Because Benedict is actually very good at dancing around spoilers — and monitoring Tom Holland
In fact, there were several incidents when the 1917 actor could be seen putting his hand on Tom Holland’s mouth. But our little Spidey being the mess that he is, even after that managed to give another scoop to the media.
There are several supercuts on YouTube compiling the many times Holland inched dangerously towards revealing a spoiler, and the equal number of times Cumberbatch lunged into action to stop him
Though the clips are only a few seconds each, but each one is better than the last. In the first clip, Tom prepares to answer a question about Infinity War — “Um, that’s good question…” — before Benedict chimes in with, “I’ll answer it.”
