Watch Tom Holland burn his Avengers: Infinity War script to keep the world safe from spoilers

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can… including, if you’re Tom Holland, burning the script to Avengers: Infinity War before it gets into nefarious hands. As it turns out, the Spider-Man: Homecoming star isn’t doing that because he’s committed to keeping schtum on spoilers… it’s because he forgot to hand in his script to Marvel. Uh-oh.

Rule number one... hand in your script 😂

In a video posted on the actor’s Instagram page, Holland addressed any Marvel producers who might be “freaking out” that he forgot to return his script and, fearing the might of Marvel’s head honchos, hastily threw the pages for Avengers: Infinity War into a roaring fire as “evidence of… destroying it.” There’s a joke in there somewhere about him being fired…

Remember, kids, if you have a spare copy of Avengers: Infinity War’s script lying about, don’t toss it into a fire. Unless you’re Spider-Man.
