Spider-Man: Far From Home's post-credit scene was so surprising, Tom Holland didn't even know about it.
The film brought a dramatic end to the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, showing how Earth carried on following the Avengers defeating Thanos and losing Iron Man.
Peter Parker's story unfolded in a very interesting way as the planet's last-remaining hero had to outsmart a master of illusion he thought was a friend. Of course, Spidey saved the day as he's been known to but he would suffer a superhero's worst nightmare in the end: his identity being revealed.
The movie's post-credit scenes exposed Spider-Man to the world, with Mysterio - played by Jake Gyllenhaal - dealing him a serious blow with the help of that annoying J. Jonah Jameson.
Even more surprisingly, it was revealed that Nick Fury and Maria Hill weren't actually in the movie, with Skrulls Talos and Soren having taken on their appearances. The real Fury was in an undisclosed location all along, trying to be on vacation as best he could while building a massive Space station with the rest of the Skrulls.
Holland was recently questioned about the plot twist during the ACE Comic-Con and would reveal that he had no idea that was going to happen. Gyllenhall, who was also present at the panel, says he didn't know until a month before the movie hit theaters.
"I'm trying to think if I did know that. No, I don't think I didn't know," Holland admitted.
"There were pieces of it we knew," Gyllenhaal chimed in. "I didn't really, really know until about a month until the movie was released."
Holland also revealed that he wasn't called back for a series of reshoots, unlike Gyllenhaal and some of the other actors were summoned for. "Yeah, because there were those reshoots and I wasn't invited to those reshoots because I got it right the first time," he quipped. "You're talking about the scene with the Skrulls? No, I don't think I did. I like that scene."
It makes sense that Holland wasn't in the loop as he's known to be one of the worst MCU actors when it comes to keeping secrets and dropping spoilers. It's reported that he wasn't given much of the script for Avengers: Endgame as the production crew didn't really trust to keep all the twists under wraps.
