The star, who is currently shooting the superhero sci-fi thriller in Albuquerque, New Mexico with Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth, landed himself in hot water after someone hacked into his printer and stole the top secret document.

He says, "When they sent me the new version of the script, I was shooting a film in Toronto (Canada) and my assistant copied it from the email (and printed it) in the office somewhere. And by the time we got to Albuquerque someone had stolen the script out of the printer and put it online for sale.

"I didn't know printers had memories. And apparently my assistant didn't either. Marvel/Disney kind of got really upset about it. It caused a minor storm of investigation. They sent a team of investigators to Canada. They were trying to find (track down) the IP address of the person that put it online. It was crazy."
