Has Tom Holland Already Started Filming ‘Avengers: Infinity War’?

Spider-Man Infinity War
Over the past few days there have been a few actors who have confirmed to be in Atlanta, presumably to start production on Avengers: Infinity War. Its more than likely that we can add Tom Holland (Spider-Man) to that list, as mentioned in an Instagram livestream.

In the livestream, Holland comments “We’re obviously working” before questioning if he is allowed to say that yet. He turns to an unseen person for confirmation saying, “People know, right? What we’re here for?” Holland then turns back towards the camera covering his mouth and lets out a chuckle as he says, “Well now they know.” Holland turns off the livestream quickly after out of fear of saying something he is not supposed to.

A recording of the livestream can be seen below thanks to About Tom Holland (@abouttomholland) on Twitter:

Clearly, Holland does not explicitly say what it is he is working on, but considering that Infinity War just started shooting a couple days ago and Holland’s secrecy on the matter, it seems pretty evident that this is almost surely what he is talking about.

It’s not a surprise that Spider-Man will be in the newest Avengers. Just about every living MCU character is thought to make some sort of appearance anyway, but Spider-Man was directly confirmed to have a role in early January.

Before Avengers: Infinity War, audiences will be able to get another look at the current Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming. It’s not yet known how much the events of Homecoming will affect the MCU, but there may be some hints at what is to come in Infinity War. There are still four films that will come out before Avengers 3, but excitement has never been higher for the “end” of the current state of the MCU as we know it.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is in theaters July 7, 2017. Avengers: Infinity War will debut May 4, 2018.

    Can’t see how that’s possible, seeing as how they don’t have a script yet.

      They do have both screenplays completely finished. They have for months. Just because the actors haven’t seen it yet doesn’t imply anything. Marvel won’t give out two full scripts to actors who will only be in a small chunk of it…no production of this magnitude does. Renner and Olsen haven’t seen it because they’ve been doing other things and don’t begin filming for a while. If they want to read them, they would have to go and read it on the lot in Burbank or at the studio in Atlanta. And Spider-Man: Homecoming is doing additional photography in Atlanta…he’s not shooting Avengers. Not yet.

        Really? That’s interesting. Especially since that’s not what the reports say. The general consensus is that they were working on SEVERAL drafts as late as fall of last year. Do you have evidence that the script was done months ago?

          Sammy thinks he knows everything. I can tell you from personal experience, that a script does not have to be finished in order for shooting to start. This is common practice, and if anything, pretty much the norm for every movie ever made. I worked as a P.A. in the film industry for years and most productions were either still working on a script or constantly tweaking it. Nothing major – it’s not like they are changing the story or anything huge – but exterior shots, b-roll, second unit stuff, is always done while scripts are still being worked on. So whether or not a script is “finished” or not is completely irrelevant. All kinds of shooting is done while a script is being worked on. It’s how the industry works. Cheers

          I don’t know what reports came out that are contradictory, but the way Marvel has learned to give themselves the best chance is they won’t enter pre-production without a draft they’re satisfied with. And they won’t shoot without one they deem worthy. They still rewrite throughout the process and will continue to do so, but its only polishing, which they will continue to do as long as it makes it better.

          • SAMURAI36

            You’re talking about what Marvel would usually do, and not what they are actually doing. You said they had a screenplay done months ago. That’s not accurate. I’d implore you to go on line and look this info up for yourself.

            Are you a Marvel employee?

      LOL! Oh Sammy…What a bitter old life you live…As if all these actors are being called on set to sit in a chair while the script is being written…
