Tom Holland has garnered such a reputation for spoilers at this point, it's not even shocking he once again revealed important MCU plot points far before he should have. The Peter Parker actor was even told that the funeral scene in Endgame was, in fact, a wedding, further proving the British actor can't keep his mouth shut. Now his Spider-Man: Far From Home co-stars have revealed he wasn't even able to keep that significant Endgame death to himself.
In an interview with YouTuber Jake Hamilton, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon, who plays Ned, said that they first learned about Tony Stark's death from Holland while they filmed Far From Home. When asked how they heard about Robert Downey Jr.'s departure from the MCU, Zendaya simply pointed at Holland. "He told me too early," she remarked at the 1:48 mark of the interview below. "I feel like we talked about this way back in, like, 2016," Batalon added.
"I've known for a really long time," Holland continued, to which Zendaya replied, "And thus we have to know." Asked how it even came up in conversation, Holland said, "I was just like, 'Yo, what's up, Iron Man dies.'" As the three laughed, Zendaya said, "Honestly, that's probably exactly how it went." Holland's two co-stars might not have needed to know the plot point for their scenes in Far From Home, but that didn't stop Holland.
The death of Iron Man is one of the key motivators for Spider-Man to step-up in the new sequel, which is set to conclude Phase 3 of the MCU. Thankfully, early critical response to Far From Home has been overwhelmingly positive, with many highlighting Jake Gyllenhaal's performance as Mysterio.
