Tom Holland Helped Sort Out the Sony Marvel Spider-Man Deal

Tom Holland Reportedly Hit Up Sony & Disney Himself To Get Spider Man Back In The MCU

The unnamed source says Holland's outreach began at Disney's D23 expo, just days after the split between Sony and Disney was made public. Yes, you read that right!

Fans rejoiced when it was announced that Spider-Man would be staying in the MCU, but as it turns out, there was an unsung hero when it came to Disney and Sony striking a new deal. One not-so-fine day at the end of August, we all woke up to the internet-breaking news that Sony and Disney had reached an impasse in their renegotiations of the usage of the Spider-Man character on the big screen.

While Sony gained confidence about its handling of 2018's Spider-Man spin-off Venom, Disney was on cloud nine after Avengers: Endgame became the all-time top grosser, standing at Dollars 2.79 billion, not adjusted for inflation.

Wieskamp Named Preseason All Big Ten
Like Tom Izzo said Wednesday in Chicago, it's getting earlier and earlier for basketball season. Winston also was named the unanimous preseason player of the year in the conference Wednesday.

Apparently, the young British actor made a series of heartfelt and impassioned pleas to Disney - the owners of Marvel - CEO Bob Iger and Sony chief Tom Rothman urging them to find a way to get Peter Parker back into the MCU. Of course, we don't know what's in store for the future, but for now, it looks like Spider-Man is safe and sound in the MCU. According to the report, Disney will get 25% of the box office net gross for the third Spider-Man film scheduled to release in July 2021.

As time went on and Marvel and Sony showed no signs of getting back together for another Spider-Man flick, Holland maintained a diplomatic, optimistic attitude that never wavered. "I'm going to be taking a short break from instagram, so see you all in the not so distant future". Tom Holland's words held a lot of weight cause not only was he the actor who plays Spider-Man, but he is also set to lead Sony's Uncharted film franchise. Following the new deal announcement, Holland celebrated his return in the quirkiest way possible.

"Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe".
