The longest stretch of time, for anyone who has worked on a Marvel movie, has to be from the day they wrap filming on production until the day the movie opens. Because if I knew all of the secrets that these actors, directors, writers and crew members knew, I’d be a leaky faucet of spoilers. Just like Tom Holland. We recently reported that Tom Holland admits he doesn’t read Avengers: Infinity War script pages because he’s “so bad at keeping secrets” (his words, not ours). And now his Spider-Man: Homecoming co-stars tell me that he’s the worst at keeping Homecoming secrets while doing press for this wildly anticipated blockbuster. Says co-star Laura Harrier, on the subject of keeping Marvel secrets:
I think we’re pretty good at it. Tom is terrible at it! He is the worst. He tells everything. I’m always like, ‘What are you saying? Stop!’
In Tom Holland’s defense, the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming has been doing a LOT of press in the run up to the opening of the new movie, and this means they have been peppered with tons of questions by hundreds of journalists all wanting to know the juiciest details. And of course, they are going to try to get Spider-Man, himself, on record giving away tasty scoops on Marvel secrets. So I followed up and asked Laura Harrier, Jacob Batalon and Zendaya who they trust with these deep dark secrets. Who can they come home from the set and gush to about all the amazing things that they recently worked on. And Zendaya, with a laugh, told me:
Each other. [Laughs] We can only tell each other, and everything is contractually bound. We can never speak of it ever again!
Unless you are Tom Holland. Then you can speak about the secrets all the time. And your co-stars will slap your leg and try to get you to stop revealing the best moments of your upcoming film. Watch the co-stars of Spider-Man: Homecoming talk spoilers, and throw Tom Holland under the bus, in our exclusive interview:
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, the wall-crawler tries to get through his sophomore year at high school while impressing Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and defeating The Vulture (Michael Keaton). The latest chapter in the evolving Marvel Cinematic Universe, the movie bridges the events of Captain America: Civil War, while setting up what’s to come in Avengers: Infinity War.
