Marvel stars who accidentally gave away massive spoilers

Mark Ruffalo – Infinity War

The Hulk star was trying to swerve Thor: Ragnarok spoilers at the D23 Expo in 2017 but then ended up giving away a major Infinity War spoiler instead. “Wait until you see this next one, everybody dies,” Ruffalo laughs before realising what a monumental mistake he had made.
Don Cheadle was unimpressed though and funnily enough, it barely got spoken about at the time. The clip went viral after the release of Infinity War so the actor kind of got away with it.

Mark Ruffalo – Thor: Ragnarok

The actor messed up again at the LA premiere of the third Thor movie by leaving his mobile on with an Instagram live stream still running. Viewers didn’t see the movie because he had put his device in his pocket but they heard the first 15 minutes before someone got him to turn it off.

Tom Holland – Infinity War

Even with the Russo’s only showing Holland the Infinity War scenes he what in, he quietly managed to spoil the movie for fans waiting to watch it at the ArcLight cinema in Hollywood.
Thinking that the audience had already seen the movie, Tom walked on the stage and said “I’m alive!” thus revealing that he did not make it at the end.

Tom Holland – Spider-Man 3

During a Spider-Man: Homecoming press junket in France, Holland accidentally revealed that he would be returning in two more movies as Peter Parker. “There is still a lot of room for Peter Parker and Spider-Man especially to grow in the next two movies,” he told AlloCine. “Sorry, Marvel! Whoops!”

Tom Holland – Infinity War

This is more of a PR stunt than spoiler but a fun one to boot. The actor did on Instagram live unveiling of the Infinity War posters, sent to him by fellow spoiler Mark Ruffalo, though after revealing the image he found a note saying “CONFIDENTIAL DO NOT SHARE.”

Gwyneth Paltrow – Endgame

Though there had been rumours that Pepper Potts would suit up as Rescue in the fourth Avengers film, Paltrow confirmed it in an interview with Variety. She was confirming her exit from the MCU when she said, “I’m a bit old to be in a suit and all at this point.”
A leaked photo of Paltrow in the Rescue armour was also doing the rounds to show she’d be donning the suit in Endgame.
The actress also confirmed that Pepper and Tony have a baby. In the preview magazine for Avengers: Infinity War, Paltrow said: “now this decade later they’re married, and they have a child.” However, as the Russo film various versions of scenes, this might refer to one that doesn’t actually get used and as Marvel is a stickler for spoilers, and have editorial control over its magazines, they may have left it in as a red herring.

Josh Brolin – Endgame

The Thanos actor revealed details of a scene where his character comes face to face with the Avengers including Captain Marvel in Endgame.
“I’ve got Scarlett right there, and I’ve got Brie, and Don Cheadle, and Hemsworth, and Chris Evans, and Downey…I’m sitting there and I’m looking like I look, which is not 700lb and purple and eight feet tall.

Sebastian Stan – Endgame

The Bucky actor accidentally revealed that he shot a scene with every major character in the MCU in an interview with the Independent.
“There was one scene, I think, we had where everybody was there,” he said. “You look around and you just saw everyone from Samuel L. Jackson to Michael Douglas to Michelle Pfeiffer. Everybody was there.”

Zoe Saldana – Endgame

Gamora “died” in Infinity War but in an interview, Saldana said she would be back to finish up “the fourth instalment of Avengers” suggesting that she does return from the dead.
Many believe she is trapped inside the Soul Stone that Thanos killed her for in order to claim it.

Karen Gillan – Endgame

During the Endgame press conference, Gillan let slip that she would face Thanos, Nebula’s “source of abuse” before quickly trying to backtrack in case she had given anything away.
“I don’t know if she will. Maybe she won’t,” she panicked. “I just got really nervous I gave something away, so I’m going to stop.”

Letitia Wright – Endgame

The actress revealed at MCM London Comic Con that she worked with Chris Pratt which suggests Shuri and Star Lord share a scene. “Chris Pratt was genuinely a great person,” Wright said. I love Chris Pratt. “He would like to give me some bible scriptures out of nowhere and then do a dance and leave.
As we now know that Shuri perished in the Decimation this scene took place in the Quantum Realm where the dusted, are to be believed, are to be residing.

Jon Favreau – Endgame

The Iron Man director and Happy Hogan actor confirmed he would be appearing in Endgame after being absent from Infinity War. “You’ll see my face next in Marvel, as Happy Hogan, in Avengers 4,” he told The Star Wars Show at the Solo: A Star Wars Story premiere.

Marvel does its very best to stop spoilers being leaked but every now and then one sneaks free and usually, it’s down to a star.

During press tours and interviews a fair few actors have prematurely revealed information about future movies before the release and it’s surprising they’ve lived to tell the tale.
