Tom Holland has a reputation for being one of the most frequent spoilers among actors of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So much so that on The Avengers press tours, Marvel sent Benedict Cumberbatch to help keep him quiet.

Some have blamed this on Holland being young, excitable, and impulsive. Having just turned 23 years old, he’s the youngest member of the MCU, unless you count the baby that ended up in Ant-Man’s time travel suit in Avengers: Endgame.

On a recent press junket for the newly released Spider-Man: Far From Home, Extra asked Holland and co-stars Zendaya and Jacob Batalon which cast member is most prone to spoilers. Zendaya and Batalon simultaneously pointed to Holland, who joked, “It’s definitely not me. It’s not me at all.”

Among the most notorious of Holland’s spoilers was when he revealed the fate of Spider-Man in Avengers: Infinity War by shouting “I’m alive!” to an audience that hadn’t watched the movie yet. Oops.

“I remember for Avengers, the Russo Brothers are like ‘so you’re just standing here, and you’re fighting this guy and just do whatever’ and I’m like, ‘okay, who am I fighting?’” Holland said at a convention. “And they were like ‘well, we can’t tell you because it’s a secret.’ I’m like, ‘okay so what does he look like?’ And they’re like ‘well, we can’t tell you because that would give it away,’ so I’m like ‘how big is he?’ ‘Well, we can’t tell you because that would give it away.’ So, I’m just standing there punching the air for 15 minutes and when I took the job I didn’t think that’s what I’d be doing. I’ve gotten used to it now.”
