Tom Holland’s third solo outing as Spider-Man is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated movies of the year. And as we edge closer to its release this weekend, fans are taking drastic measures to avoid spoilers for the film. The phrase “Deleting Twitter” is currently trending on the social media site, as fans scramble to save themselves from seeing anything related to Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Fans didn’t seem to be trying to get anything trending at first. They wanted to make sure their followers knew that they were deleting Twitter for No Way Home and promise that they would be back once they saw it. Hopefully, not to post spoilers themselves.

Some people were surprised to find that deleting Twitter was trending because of No Way Home.

Marvel’s Spider-Man movies and spoilers actually go hand-in-hand, thanks to its star Tom Holland. The young actor is known for accidentally giving away top-secret information about his films. He’s so bad at keeping key plot points to himself, that talk show hosts have teased him about it during interviews. But if you’re deleting Twitter, no one can ruin No Way Home for you.

Sony Pictures has also pleaded with folks who’ve already seen the film not to share spoilers online.

The tweet is accompanied by a video in which various cast members ask fans to be respectful about spoilers. Their instructions were taken very seriously as more and more people commit to deleting Twitter. Whether they follow through remains to be seen. Muting specific phrases related to the movie is also a great way to avoid content you don’t want to see. But it’s not fool-proof. So if you’ve ever considered taking a break from social media – now is the best time to do it.

Following its world premiere last night, Spider-Man: No Way Home is said to be exactly the movie everyone wants it to be. But it’s been difficult for critics to get into any real specifics without giving away too much. Don’t worry there are no spoilers here, so you don’t have to delete Twitter because of it. Spider-Man’s story begins immediately after the events of its predecessor and examines how Peter Parker’s life and reputation are turned upside down following his identity being exposed at the hands of Mysterio.

Spider-Man: No Way Home has already confirmed the appearance of various villains from previous Spider-Man projects. This includes Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus, Jamie Foxx’s Electro, Rhys Ifan’s Lizard, and Thomas Haden Church as Sandman. In addition to the array of super villains, rumors also suggest that Doctor Strange is the conduit to bringing Andrew Garfield and Toby Maguire’s versions of Spider-Man into Tom Holland’s universe by way of the multiverse. However, nothing has ever been confirmed.

Directed by Jon Watts, the film also stars Zendaya as MJ, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. Reprising their roles from previous Spider-Man films are Tony Revolori as Eugene “Flash” Thompson, Parker’s classmate and rival, Angourie Rice as Betty Brant, Parker’s classmate and Leeds’ ex-girlfriend, and Hannibal Buress as Coach Wilson, Midtown School of Science and Technology’s gym teacher.

Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released worldwide on December 17, 2021.
