At Greenbelt 3 in Makati City, one fan, Iñigo Reyes, who was one of many who booked tickets for the movie in advance. He showed Rappler a photo he took of Spider-Man actor Tom Holland during a trip in Los Angeles. “I’m with a friend. We booked these tickets weeks ago. It’s better to be early rather than it being spoiled," he said.
Iñigo secured a seat along the first rows at the edge of the cinema. “I even bought a ticket for a different movie just to see if my seat for the Endgame is okay. I didn’t even finish that movie.”
