Movie producers will do everything in their power to prevent leaks from getting out, and that means putting a lockdown on scripts. They issue failsafes as a deterrent against the more forgettable stars who accidentally leave these prized documents where they are not supposed to be. Marvel Studios apparently asks the stars to turn in their scripts. When Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland forgot to turn in his Avengers: Infinity War script, he went public on his Instagram page and burned it in his stove live on camera for all to see.
It was the star's assurance to his bosses that the script, though unturned, will never find its way into curious or greedy hands. Holland's appearance in the Avengers saga, although long suspected, was only recently confirmed by the star himself.
In the video posted on his Instagram, Holland addresses the camera and says,
"Marvel likes to keep everything a secret. So, to all the producers who are probably freaking out because I forgot to hand in my script, here is evidence that I am destroying it."
Holland tosses the script into the paper-burning stove and says, "Job done."
It's safe to say that the Avengers: Infinity War producers will be sleeping soundly after that scene.
Watch Holland's script-burning scene below.
Tom Holland's wallcrawler movie which is directed by Jon Watts, "Spider-Man:Homecoming," will open in theaters on July 7, 2017. "Avengers: Infinity War", directed by the Russo brothers, will premiere on May 4, 2018.
