One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s unanswered mysteries involves the current owners of the Avengers Tower, the former home of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. While many fans speculate about who could utilize the tower in the future and for what purposes, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland already knows the answer, even if he refuses to reveal it. During a ComicBook interview, Holland was asked if he knew what happened to the previous Avengers Tower. At first, the celebrity appeared perplexed by the question. However, after a few seconds, Holland said, eyes wide awake, “I know who purchased Avengers Tower!” Holland’s co-star Zendaya, who plays Michael Jackson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, covered his lips to prevent him from disclosing the secret. Unfortunately, the harm has already been done, and we will now have to question who owns the building and why the answer is being kept secret.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) was the owner of the Avengers’ original base of operations:

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) was the Avengers’ initial center of operations until it was re-modelled to house Earth’s defenders when aliens attacked New York during the events of 2012’s The Avengers. After that, the skyscraper appeared in multiple Marvel films before being sold to an unknown buyer in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. The plot of Homecoming centers around the Vulture (Michael Keaton) attempting to steal Avengers technology as Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) emptied the Tower. Marvel never mentioned the Avenger Tower’s owner again until recently, when Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) brought it up in the Hawkeye series. While it’s possible that the new owner of the Avengers Tower is merely another easter egg in the MCU, the fact that Holland is aware of it and must keep it secret suggests that the answer will come as a surprise to fans. We don’t know when the secret will be exposed. Perhaps we’ll learn more about the Avengers Tower agreement in Hawkeye, the last place we heard about it. Perhaps it has anything to do with the next Spider-Man film.

Holland will reprise his role as the Web Crawler in Spider-Man: No Way Home later this month. When Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is enlisted to wipe Spider-True Man’s identity from everyone’s memory, the movie will shatter the Multiverse’s borders. Unfortunately, the spell does not succeed and instead summons guests from other dimensions into the MCU. Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus, Jamie Foxx’s Electro, Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, plus, as previously disclosed, Thomas Haden Church’s Sandman and Rhys Ifans’ Lizard will all appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home. All of these adversaries are from prior forms of the Web Crawler, with one for each pre-MCU film—three with Tobey Maguire as the eponymous hero, and the other two with Andrew Garfield. In “No Way Home,” Jacob Batalon returns as Ned Leeds, with Marisa Tomei as May Parker, Benedict Wong as Wong, Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson, and Angourie Rice as Betty Brant in “No Way Home.” Jon Watts returns to helm this third movie, which is based on a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, who also wrote the first two films. Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released in cinemas on December 17th. Every Wednesday, new episodes of Hawkeye are released on Disney+.
