Tom Holland has promised not to give away any spoilers as he excitedly confirmed that Spider-Man 3 is happening. The actor will be reprising his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man once more. But the 24-year-old, who has accidentally spoiled big moments in the Marvel movies in the past, says he's learned his lesson and won't be doing it again. Excitedly sharing the update with his fans, Tom filmed himself for his Instagram story while clutching an iPad he'd just been sent in the post.

He said: "So I just got home, I'm in Atlanta, I've just been delivered a package, that package is an iPad and on that iPad is a scipt...And that script is Spider-Man 3, so I'm about to find out what I'm going to be doing for the next five months. I'm not going to tell you anything about it, because I've learnt my lesson."

The clumsy young actor then exclaimed "Oh s**t" as the cover came loose from the iPad, prompting him to think he'd broken it before even getting the chance to read the script. Thankfully it was okay. He went on: "I'm going to read this now and I can't wait. I'll speak to you all soon."
