It has been only a few weeks since news surfaced that Spider-Man will continue to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Soon after that various outlets reported that the actor Tom Holland himself played a big role in brokering this deal between the film giants at Sony Studios and Disney.
Appearing at the Jimmy Kimmel show, Bob Iger, Disney Chairman and CEO, confirmed these rumours. While promoting his book The Ride of a Lifetime Bob Iger spoke to the host about his interaction with Tom after the D23 event.
"I felt for him and it was clear that the fans wanted all this to happen. So, after I got off the phone with him I made a couple of phone calls to our team at Disney Studios and then I decided to call the head of Sony. And I said, 'We got to figure out a way to get this done, for Tom and for the fans. And we did," he said.
Tom's endeavour definitely paid off when on 27th September news broke out about the deal. For now we can't wait to see Tom reprise his role in future marvel films.
