Alongside Avengers: EndgameSpider-Man: No Way Home sits among the biggest crowd-pleasing movies in cinematic history. Fans were treated to the long-awaited return of five fan-favorite villains and three iconic Spider-Men, and one only has to explore the many audience reactions online to see that moviegoers were beyond thrilled.

In the lead-up to release, many of the surprise characters were unfortunately spoiled between trailer mishaps, leaked images, and reported plot details. Although this absolutely didn't tarnish No Way Home's success, as it went on to break box office records and achieve acclaim from fans and critics alike.

Anticipation for a movie release may never have been higher and the press tour made it even more interesting as Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire, and Charlie Cox repeatedly denied being in the threequel.

As the titular star Tom Holland led the interview circuit, it appears he accidentally dropped one major spoiler weeks before release, and Andrew Garfield thinks it's absolutely hilarious.

Andrew Garfield Reacts to Tom Holland Spoilers

During a recent interview with BBC Radio 1's Ali Plumb, The Amazing Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield reacted to Tom Holland accidentally spoiling a major scene from Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Plumb pointed out to Garfield that he knew he was in the movie due to a previous interview he conducted with Holland prior to the release. During their previous sit-down, Holland and Zendaya discussed MJ's fall from the Statue of Liberty as it was featured in the later trailers.

Discussing the moment his Spider-Man desperately reaches to catch his loving girlfriend, Holland called the stunt "scary" and "really fun" but noted "[he] wasn't there:"

"That was quite a scary stunt, what you guys did there. It was really fun. Well, I wasn't there, but it looked really fun."

Obviously, Holland wasn't present on set for the stunt as it was ultimately Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man who saved MJ.

Reacting to the clip, Garfield simply burst out laughing. The interviewer drew particular attention to the moments after Holland's comment on the stunt, where a look of realization can be seen on the actor's face.

The British actor, after initially saying that "Tom's a really bad liar," shared his love and sympathy for Holland, saying "God bless him" and to "never change:"

"God bless him. I love you, Tom. Never change, never change."

No Way Home: Hollywood's Worst-Kept Secret

Spider-Man: No Way Home saw Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire finally reprise their heroic roles in what should have been the biggest surprise in movie history. Unfortunately, leaked images and spoiler-filled reports destroyed the shock potential, as the actors' big returns were common knowledge months before release.

In another corner of the Multiverse, the ground-breaking Spider-Verse team-up may have never been spoiled, and in those theaters, the screams would be even louder and crazier than they already were in this timeline.

Tom Holland has a long track record and reputation of accidentally spoiling his Spider-Man movies, although he managed to keep most of No Way Home's secret quiet. In hindsight, the British star's comments about being absent for the shoot may have been a spoiler, but at the time most assumed he was referring to a stuntman performing the dramatic scene in his place.

Recent Marvel projects have suffered from a major leaking problem as many of the biggest shocks have been reported by scoopers and insiders months before release. With any luck, Disney and Marvel Studios may look to raise their security to prevent these problems from plaguing future films and series.

Spider-Man: No Way Home will hit digital platforms on March 22, 2022.
