Tom Holland, famous for his role as “Spider-Man,” tells Yahoo Entertainment negotiating to keep the web slinger in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a stressful time. The British actor reached out to Disney CEO Bob Iger and Tom Rothman, the chairman of Sony Pictures, and used his powers of persuasion. “I was very grateful that the two studio allowed me to be a part of that process,” he says.
Last August, the two studios could not agree on financial terms to continue working together on the Spider-Man franchise. In the new agreement, Disney-owned Marvel Studios will produce a third Spider-Man film for Sony. “I think Spider-Man now is where he belongs, Holland says.” “He's home in the MCU and I’m so grateful that I get to keep playing him in that place.”
