Avengers: Endgame Fans Defend Tom Holland After He Spoils The Film


Tom Holland’s reputation as a notorious source of MCU spoilers certainly didn’t come out of thin air. But while some Marvel fans are decrying the actor’s recent comments as the latest example of Holland saying too much, others are coming to his defense, arguing that the performer’s Avengers: Endgame remarks were perfectly acceptable for the context.

For those in need of a catch-up, Holland was on the latest episode of The Graham Norton Show to promote the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home when he made the following comments:

“The film is a direct continuation of Avengers: Endgame so we deal with the ramifications of the blip, of the death of Tony Stark. Sorry if anyone hasn’t seen the film! If you haven’t, then you’re living under a rock, to be honest.”

As it turns out, there are still a few spoiler-conscious MCU fans out there who haven’t got round to seeing the MCU sequel, some of whom have taken to social media to vent their frustration at Holland. In the replies to these posts, however, you’ll find many a filmgoer insisting that the Spider-Man actor didn’t actually cross the line.

One of the most obvious arguments you could make in Holland’s defense is that Endgame has already been in theaters for almost two months, and has been seen by an insanely huge number of people. With that in mind, a case can be made that anyone who still hasn’t given Endgame a watch probably isn’t that fussed about spoilers, otherwise they would’ve made the time to see it.

Indeed, even the typically tight-lipped Russo Brothers officially lifted the film’s spoiler ban after its second weekend in theaters, and since then, the death of Tony Stark has been explicitly referenced in the second Far From Home trailer. And since it was Holland’s job to promote Peter Parker’s next solo outing, can you really blame him for explaining how the movie follows through on one of the major plot developments of Endgame?

All in all, it’s clear that the bulk of the MCU fanbase sees little wrong with Holland’s remarks. That being said, if you still haven’t given Avengers: Endgame a watch, then you may want to put three hours aside before the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 2nd.
