While Avengers: Infinity War press season is great for us fans, it might be the scariest time of them all for Tom Holland.
Avengers: Infinity War’s Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston revealed all they could about the movie in a live interview — all while helping Tom Holland to stay tight-lipped.
Holland’s a bit notorious at this point about revealing spoilers about his Marvel movies, or at least coming very close.
Take for example this GMA video from 2017 that’s literally titled “Benedict Cumberbatch Stops Tom Holland From Revealing Any Big Avengers Infinity War Secrets.” Or that one time when Holland even joked about directors Joe and Anthony Russo wanting him specifically to not spoil the movie.
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.
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 some of the 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.
It’s difficult to look forward to next part of Avengers. But if anyone can promise me Cumberbatch will once again be employed as Holland’s official babysitter, I’ll very much look forward to that.
With trusty Doctor Strange and Loki by his side, he managed to give us a lot of good info while not revealing anything too sensitive. That’s one interview down, probably lots more to go.
