Tom Holland knows about as we do about Avengers: Infinity War. He’s not the first actor that has said they don’t know much about the production due to only seeing their pages but it sounds like Marvel went to a different level for Holland because he was infamously unable to keep from spoiling for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Holland was on The Graham Norton Show and was asked about the entire cast being in one scene together,.
“You know what? I don’t know,” Holland said. “A lot of my scenes with Benedict Cumberbatch, I did with someone else who just had dots on their face who I guess, later in the process, will become Benedict Cumberbatch.”
Holland then explained that there were times he didn’t even know who he was sharing a scene with and was frantically texting people trying to figure out who was in what scene.
“I just tell everyone. I just wasn’t allowed to read the script,” Holland admitted. “I’d be on set and be working with actors and actresses that were just tennis balls for that day so I’d be texting people like ‘Hey, are you in this scene with Spider-Man?’ so I basically had to do a lot of background research to find out what I was doing.”
When asked if he’s seen the movie Holland admits he hasn’t even read it let alone seen it but that puts him in the fun position of seeing it with fans the day of release. Or the day of the world premiere.
“I haven’t even read it, I have no idea what it’s about. Which is quite fun because I get to see it [with everyone else].”
It must be kind of cool for these actors to go into this movie with so little knowledge. It probably made acting a little harder but most of them are fans, Holland in particular remembers seeing the first Avengers in theaters, so now they get the same experience we do on release day.
Summary: As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
