Warning: spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War follow. Stop reading if you haven't seen the movie yet.
Tom Holland: Peter Parker, Spider-Man, terrible secret-keeper. Holland has a reputation for letting Marvel Cinematic Universe spoilers slip--so much so that Marvel paired him with Benedict Cumberbatch during Avengers: Infinity War press so Cumberbatch could stop Holland from spilling the goods. Unfortunately, Cumberbatch couldn't keep Holland from revealing a spoiler in front of a theater audience that hadn't seen the movie yet.
Oh, Tom. Sweet baby Tom.
The crowd at Arclight Theater on April 28 was probably excited when stars from Infinity War surprised them and introduced the film. Cumberbatch and Holland were joined by Kevin Feige and the Russo brothers. But a confused Holland thought the crowd had already seen the movie. He stepped in front of the crowd and said, "I'm alive!" He's of course referring to the fact that Spider-Man died in the movie (by the way, Holland improvised that heartbreaking scene).
The above video from Jennifer Muro shows the moments after Holland shared the spoiler. He said, "Wait, have you guys seen it, or are you about to see it?" Insert facepalm here.
Megan Amram was in the crowd too:
