Is there a hidden reason why Holland was at the premiere?

Is he going to get in trouble with Kevin Feige?

Well, no, probably not. As one fan suggested, Holland could’ve been there to support his fellow MCU actors. Guardians of the Galaxy‘s James Gunn helmed The Suicide Squad, and brought over a few Marvel stars with him, such as Sean Gunn, Michael Rooker and Taika Waititi.

The other option is that Holland just wanted to watch the movie. The Suicide Squad is receiving rave reviews and is currently sitting at 96% on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the highest-rated DC flick on the site at this time. Yes, even higher than The Dark Knight. Conversely, the original Suicide Squad is the lowest-rated DCEU movie on RT.

Also featuring Margot Robbie, Idris Elba and John Cena, The Suicide Squad arrives in theaters and on HBO Max from this Thursday, August 5th. Tom Holland, meanwhile, will next be seen in Spider-Man: No Way Home, swinging into cinemas on December 17th.
