Not only does he play the role of a superhero, but he’s a real-life one as well! Tom Holland is the one who saved Spider-Man!
There are so many reasons why we just absolutely love Tom Holland. He’s a dog lover, he doesn’t have toxic masculinity (Ehem, that Lip Sync Dance Battle is forever legendary!), he adorably can’t keep secrets, and now he’s saved our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man! I’m sure I speak for all Marvel and Spider-Man fans out there. When I say that we were all distraught to hear the news in August of Spider-Man getting cut from the MCU. All because the executives from Disney-Marvel and Sony can’t get along. But somehow our best boy, Tom, managed to melt their icy hearts! This is how Tom Holland saved Spider-Man:
The story of how Tom Holland saved the day!
Once upon a time, there were two kingdoms that were always arguing. And then one day, along came a kind-hearted young spider that made them realize that… it’s not about what they want! It’s about the fans! The End! LOL, just kidding! But it definitely sounds like that. According to the Hollywood Reporter, it was Tom Holland’s efforts that got the two of the world’s most powerful executives to begin negotiations for Spider-Man once again. After Sony and Disney-Marvel declared that Spider-Man will no longer be part of the MCU and that negotiations were absolutely over last August 20, Tom Holland probably worked his cute-boyish charm, as he made multiple appeals to these powerful executives. And by some miracle, he actually did manage to get Disney’s chairman and CEO Bob Iger and Sony’s film chairman Tom Rothman to sit down and talk again. And it worked! As of September 27, they officially announced that Disney-Marvel and Sony will continue their partnership for Spider-Man. The deal is that Disney will chip-in 25% in funding for Spider-Man 3 and will also get 25% of the profits. They also have rights to and all profits from the merchandise.
So what does the new deal mean for the fans?
It means that all you fans out there, who just can’t wait to see Spidey again on the big screen, will be seeing him in a third Spider-Man movie! Plus an appearance in one Marvel-Disney film. As to what that film is, there’s nothing concrete just yet. And the only thing we know about Spider-Man 3 is that it will be showing on July 16, 2021.
Now, nobody knows exactly what Tom Holland said that saved Spider-Man. But we believe he showed how invested the people were in the story of the current Spider-Man and their love for him. Tom Holland is the true hero today. So thanks, Tom! Keep doing what you do!
Isn’t Tom Holland just the best? Did his efforts into saving Spider-Man and bringing him back to the MCU make you love him more? We’d love to hear what you think! So share with us your thoughts in the comments down below! Or hit us up on our Facebook or Twitter @UDoUPh.
