Tom Holland didn’t even know about that Infinity War moment until the day he filmed it


It seems like the emotional ride that is Avengers: Infinity War doesn’t stop after you leave the theater. Now, there’s more feels to feel thanks to Tom Holland.

Warning! Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War ahead. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, you’ll definitely want to come back later.

There’s just no way to reel from the emotional behemoth that is Avengers: Infinity War, even days after you see the movie. The cast is still buzzing and giving away a lot more behind-the-scenes info now that we’ve all seen the movie.

One surprise coming out of this post-Infinity War exploration comes from Tom Holland, who recently did a fan screening and Q&A following the movie.

Many can agree that the biggest emotional moment of the movie, hands down, was when Peter Parker was reaped as part of Thanos’ quest to eliminate half of the universe. But Holland revealed that he didn’t even know about the scene until the day he filmed it.

The actors have said that many received faked scripts while they filmed the movie, but this scene is a big one to keep hidden for so long. It shows that the Russo brothers really went to great lengths to keep the movie a secret for not only the fans but the actors as well.

Holland was apparently “taken aback when he saw the death in the film,” as Webbed Media reports, seeing as he was having a good time while filming it. We won’t hold it against him that he had a good time filming the scene. But it’s hard to believe something like that wouldn’t immediately be emotional to act out, given the fans’ response to the scene (as one girl in this writer’s movie theater audibly sobbed as Peter began to vanish).

Although, Holland did have to give the scene a couple of goes. The whole “I don’t want to go,” was an improvised line, but he had to deliver it a few times — so it probably lost meaning after a while for him.

Even so, it was an emotional scene and movie-ender that definitely left all of us shook by the time the credits rolled. Holland gave a really sweeping performance, and we can’t wait to see how he comes back. It was such a heartbreaker to see how his and the other characters’ deaths affected Tony Stark, so we just want the gang to be happy and back together again.

Oh, and Holland revealed in the Q&A that he doesn’t think he’s given away as many spoilers as his co-star Mark Ruffalo. We’re not officially keeping count, but they’re certainly tied for the castmember who reveals the most.
