Tom Holland Helped Save ‘Spider-Man’ Negotiations
Tom Holland Helped Save
‘Spider-Man’ Negotiations According to the Hollywood Reporter,
Tom Holland was a driving force behind
the reconciliation of Disney and Sony.
Holland reportedly made persistent appeals to
both Disney CEO Bob Iger and Sony chairman
Tom Rothman to save their ‘Spider-Man’ partnership.
His upcoming role in Sony’s ’Uncharted’
apparently played a role in his ability to
persuade Rothman to re-engage with Disney.
The outcry of fans on social media for Holland
to be allowed to remain in the Marvel Cinematic
Universe also reportedly influenced their final decision.
The ‘Spider-Man’ agreement between
Disney and Sony initially dissolved on Aug.
when Disney sought a 50-50 co-financing deal.
Following Holland’s push to continue negotiations, the two studios announced an agreement
for a third ‘Spider-Man’ movie on Sept.
The new agreement will also allow Holland
to appear as Spider-Man in at least one
upcoming Disney-Marvel film.
