  • Joe and Anthony Russo, the “Avengers: Infinity War” directors, addressed Tom Holland and spoilers in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
  • Joe said that it’s “hard to be punitive” against Holland, but Doctor Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch was a great partner for him on the press tour to monitor Holland.
  • Holland is infamous for not being able to keep a secret, and may have even confirmed a fan theory for “Avengers 4” in an old interview.

Spider-Man actor Tom Holland can’t keep a secret. He infamously revealed the title of the next “Spider-Man” movie before it was officially announced, and he may have even confirmed a popular fan theory about “Avengers 4.”

It’s hard to believe that Holland is so bad at keeping things hidden, but “Avengers: Infinity War” directors Joe and Anthony Russo recently addressed the subject and confirmed that, yes, Holland is just terrible at keeping his mouth shut.

Entertainment Tonight asked the Russo Brothers how they felt about Holland spending the entire press tour for the movie accidentally spoiling things.

“What are you going to do?” Joe said. “He’s the nicest guy in the world so it’s hard to be punitive against Tom Holland.”

ET said that people had made “super cut” videos of all the times Holland has spoiled something, and Joe said, “was it like 15 minutes long?”

They also praised Holland’s co-star and Doctor Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch for keeping Holland in line during the press tour.

“Benedict is a great partner for him on the press tour because Benedict is actually very good at dancing around spoilers and monitoring Tom Holland,” Joe said.

“It’s hard work,” Anthony added.

You can watch the entire ET interview below. The exchange about Tom Holland begins toward the end of the video, at the 11:37 mark.
