Tom Holland reveals Avengers: Endgame spoiler and gets backlash

God bless Tom Holland. He’s one of the few actors today keeping the media circuits interesting. In his recent appearance on the Graham Norton Show, he gave away the Avengers: Endgame ending, specifically the fate of one specific character. Let’s just say his name rhymes with Brony Park.

Spoilers ahead if you’re one of the few who haven’t seen Avengers: Endgame.

“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. “Sorry if anyone hasn’t seen the film! If you haven’t, then you’re living under a rock, to be honest.”

What followed was some mild social media backlash. But Tom did nothing wrong in this case.

In his defense:

1. Holland has a reputation for spoiling things. The Russos made him act blindfolded and fed him his lines just to keep him guessing. Also, if you haven’t seen the film in the first two weeks of release, it probably wouldn’t be wise to watch an interview of a person with such a reputation, especially on a show where they provide endless alcohol to loosen the lips of their guests.

2. Endgame came out two months ago. Spoilers have an expiration date, people. In my opinion, it’s roughly 10 days or less. You get a max 10 days, and then it’s on you. Do you know who else thinks that? The Russos, who officially lifted the spoiler embargo on May 6th, rule of 10.

3. The Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer already spoiled the spoiling that Holland spoiled, so you can’t really spoil something that’s already soaking in spoils, can you?

Let’s just all take a breath and cut Tom some slack and enjoy him in the Tony Stark-less Spider-Man: Far From Home, which hits theaters on July 2, 2019.

Synopsis: Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.

The film is directed by Jon Watts and written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers. It stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon, Martin Starr, Marisa Tomei, and Jake Gyllenhaal
