SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen “Avengers: Endgame”, then STOP READING NOW — because Tom Holland is about to spoil the ending for you.
Tom Holland was among the guests on this week’s edition of “The Graham Norton Show”, promoting the upcoming sequel “Spider-Man: Far From Home”.
Discussing the new Marvel Studios flick, Holland set up the movie’s timeline, telling Norton that it takes place directly after the events of “Avengers: Endgame” — but wound up dropping a huge spoiler for those who have yet to see it.
“The film is a direct continuation of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ so we deal with the ramifications of the blip, of the death of Tony Stark,” Holland said, adding a quick apology.
“Sorry if anyone hasn’t seen the film!” he quipped. “If you haven’t, then you’re living under a rock, to be honest.”
Apparently there are a lot of people living under rocks, according to the Twitter responses from ticked-off fans who hadn’t gotten around to seeing the latest Marvel blockbuster.
Holland’s latest gaffe isn’t exactly helping his reputation as Marvel’s biggest source of spoilers.
For those keeping track, Holland has so far: accidentally revealed the title of “Spider-Man: Far From Home” on social media; spilled the beans in an interview that Marvel was planning a trilogy of “Spider-Man” movies; and once walked into a theatre showing “Avengers: Infinity War” and shouted “I’m alive!” — before the movie even started!
As a result, “Endgame” directors Joe and Anthony Russo have revealed that they wouldn’t let Holland read the entire script for fear that he’d inadvertently give away plot points.
“Yeah, Tom Holland does not get the script,” Joe Russo told IndieWire. “Tom Holland gets his lines and that’s it. He doesn’t even know who he’s acting opposite of. We use like, very vague terms to describe to him what is happening in the scene. He has a very difficult time keeping his mouth shut.”
