Marvel president Kevin Feige has defended both Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming) and Mark Ruffalo — aka The Incredible Hulk — for their less-than incredible track record for leaking spoilers.
Holland is infamously terrible at keeping Marvel secrets — previously the Spider-Man star accidentally leaked that Homecoming was the first part of a planned trilogy, while Benedict Cumberbatch has had to cut off his interview questions in the past for fear of spoilers.

However, according to Feige, the 23-year-old actor isn’t as bad at keeping schtum as fans would believe.
“The truth is Tom Holland is amazing and has kept a lot of secrets. I think about the two millionth time it came up on a talk show about how bad he is at keeping secrets, he did come up to me and go, ‘You know, I do keep a lot of secrets’,” the studio boss said at the Empire Magazine‘s live podcast.
“‘I know, but it’s a thing now, it’s a fun thing, so let’s lean into it’,” Feige recalled telling Holland. “And then he’ll go spoil something else by accident.”
Feige also joked that that Ruffalo “has a tendency to let his phone record at all times, in all places”, but that the studio didn’t have any special measures in place for either actor.
