Following in the footsteps of his fellow Marvel movie star Mark Ruffalo, who inadvertently streamed part of Thor: Ragnarok during one of the film’s premieres, Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Tom Holland “accidentally” showed fans the official Avengers: Infinity War poster while he was live-streaming.
On Tuesday, the 21-year-old actor took to Instagram to host a live unboxing of a special package Ruffalo sent him. Inside the mysterious parcel is the Avengers: Infinity War poster (via Twitter). Holland holds it up to the camera for a few seconds and proclaims that it’s “dope.” The image mirrors the design of both The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron promo one-sheets, which feature the Avengers “A” and the release date.
Holland’s excitement grows when he pulls out a note that reads, “Hi Tom, I’m so excited to be working with you on Infinity War. I thought you’d like to be the first to see the poster for the movie. Enjoy.” But things quickly turn to panic when Holland flips the message over and sees that it’s stamped with “CONFIDENTIAL: DO NOT SHARE” on the back. He proceeds to freak out, swear a little, and hurry to stop his livestream.
Though the “leak” was entirely a joke, serving as a hilariously self-aware way to poke fun at Ruffalo’s actual misstep in the MCU, the release of the poster is totally legit. Take a look at the full-res version, as compared to the 2012 and 2015 Avengers posters, below.
Marvel Studios will launch the official Avengers: Infinity War trailer tomorrow, November 29. The Avengers will assemble in theaters on May 4, 2018.
