Spoilers ahead for Avengers: Endgame.
Avengers: Endgame arrived in theaters over a month ago, and the spoiler ban has been lifted for almost as long. As such, the fans have been able to discuss and dissect every single frame in The Russo Brothers' blockbuster, including the wild ending. Moviegoers were able to watch as countless characters team up for the final battle against Thanos, as well as Tony Stark's sacrifice to wipe the Mad Titan out once and for all.
In the wake of Tony's death, we were treated to his funeral scene at the lake house he shared with Pepper and Morgan. The MCU's biggest characters (and some surprise cameos) graced the screen, and now Spider-Man actor Tom Holland has shared a video from the set of that emotional scene. Turns out the mood wasn't so somber on set, check it out:
Tom Holland may have gotten a reputation for spoiling the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but this time he wasn't the only culprit. Plenty of Earth's Mightiest Heroes were filming their own videos during Tony's funeral scene. Luckily, none of them got leaked ahead of the blockbuster's release.
It looks like Tom Holland was given the same rights to his phone as the rest of the Avengers: Endgame cast. So when he, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and Mark Ruffalo started recording, there was strength in numbers. But they did end up getting yelled at eventually, and quickly put their respective phones away in order to work on the film's emotional finale.
While Tom Holland was able to snag a quick video on the set of Avengers: Endgame, he wasn't given the same access to scripts as everyone else. In fact, he was only given his lines, in order to try and avoid a potential spoiler situation. And when it came to Tony's funeral scene, The Russo Brothers didn't even tell him that's what the scene was ahead of time. He thought it was going to be a wedding scene. Womp womp.
Tony Stark's funeral was a gut punch of a scene, as Pepper and Morgan put his "heart" out to sea alongside countless familiar faces from the MCU. Each franchise was represented, with a long shot featuring the formerly dusted characters alongside the heroes who helped bring them to life. The entire shared universe bowed their heads to give Iron Man the respect he deserved, especially after he snagged the Infinity Stones and snapped Thanos out of existence for good.
It should be interested to se what other videos end up coming from the set of Avengers: Endgame as time goes on. The cast started sharing clips as soon as the spoiler ban was lifted, and they'd be able to get chatty without any repercussions. So it was only a matter of time before Tom Holland followed suit.
Avengers: Endgame is in theaters now, and Tom Holland will reprise his role in Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 2nd. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
