Benedict Cumberbatch Praised by ‘Infinity War’ Directors for ‘Monitoring Tom Holland’ Spoilers — Watch

Spider-Man has a habit of divulging more than he should.

In addition to actually playing Spider-Man, Tom Holland is best known for spoiling what Spider-Man does in his movies. “Avengers: Infinity War” directors Anthony and Joe Russo know that better than anyone, and, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, they praised one of Holland’s co-stars for keeping his bad habit in check: Benedict Cumberbatch.

Here’s the exchange in question:

Ash Crossan: “How do you feel that Tom Holland spent the entire press tour spoiling aspects of the movie over and over?”

Joe Russo [laughs]: “What are you gonna do? You know. He’s the nicest guy in the world, so you can never be punitive towards Tom Holland.”

AC: “People made supercuts of it, which was my favorite thing.”

JR: “Of everything he spoiled? Was it like 15 minutes long?”

AC: “It was him and Benedict Cumberbatch, and Benedict Cumberbatch just being like [blocking Tom Holland to shut him up.]”

JR: “By the way, 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.”

Anthony Russo: “That’s hard work.”

JR: “It is.”

“Infinity War” was fairly successful, as you may be aware, having grossed more than $2 billion worldwide. Its untitled sequel will be released on May 3, 2019.
