Spider-Man: Homecoming's Tom Holland Knows He's A Marvel Blabbermouth
Tom Holland is the Spider-Man we need right now. And yet, even he acknowledges that he's not flawless as a textbook Marvel superstar. Remember, a few years ago, Holland was a simple fan, like us. Which is why he understands that Marvel Studios can't trust him with any secrets. Not a single one. Holland recently joked:
I know this much: if I happened to land a spot in the MCU -- the way relative newcomers Chris Pratt, Chadwick Boseman and/or Tom Holland landed spots in the established world -- there's no way I'd be able to keep my mouth shut. I'd blab into every microphone, sharing the exciting updates with fellow fans, because we all want to know what's happening next.
So how do they protect Tom Holland from himself? From everything that we have heard over the years, Marvel actors don't get access to entire scripts. If Tom Holland would be able to tell us anything about what might happen in, say, Avengers: Infinity War, he likely could only share things that happen to his character, Peter Parker. Which is OK, because that still gives us plenty of questions to ask him. How does his spider sense work? When did he slip into the Iron Spider suit from the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming?
As for Tom Holland's amusing tweet, I wonder if his "video" led to the scene of Peter's best friend, Ned, trying on Spidey's mask in Homecoming:
If he could talk, what do you think Tom Holland would tell us about his future in the MCU? A lot, actually. We know that Spider-Man will join his fellow Marvel heroes in next summer's battle against Thanos (Josh Brolin), Avengers: Infinity War. And Marvel President Kevin Feige confirmed that the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the first movie in the MCU to follow Avengers 4, of which there are still tons of unanswered questions. What will Spidey's role be in a post-Thanos MCU? If Holland knows even a sliver of information, Marvel fans would pounce.
