Holland admits he openly wept about the possibility of not returning to the MCU after "Spider-Man: Far From Home.".
Holland proved to be an instrumental figure in bringing the two studios together to find common ground.
During the actor’s December 4 appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” Holland told his side of the Disney-Sony split drama.
The story memorably includes a drunken phone call with Disney CEO Bob Iger that left Holland in tears.
“We were at D23 and the news came out and I was obviously devastated,” Holland remembered.
A drunken Holland picked up the phone and “wept” to Iger over the possibility of his Spider-Man character being removed from the MCU because of the studios’ disagreement.
Disney and Sony announced September 27 it had finally come to an agreement to share the character for a third MCU movie following “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” »
