In case you didn’t hear, this fall, there was some drama about Spider-Man potentially leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and poor Tom Holland got caught up in the middle of all that. Tom still would have been able to play Spider-Man, but he wouldn’t have been in any other Marvel movies. That’s very sad! And Tom didn’t like it.
He was so upset about the whole thing that he wanted to talk to Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney (Disney owns Marvel).
“We were at D23 and the news came out and I was obviously devastated,” Tom told Jimmy Kimmel last night. “It was awful. I asked if I could get Bob Iger’s email because I just wanted to say, ‘Thank you, this has been an amazing five years of my life. Thank you for changing my life in the best way and I hope that we can work together in the future.’ I got his email and I sent him the email and he responded very quickly saying he’d want to jump on the phone and asked when I was free.”
For context, that is a huge deal. Bob is, like...one of the most important people in all of entertainment. He runs DISNEY.
“So two, three days go by and then my family and I went to the pub quiz in our local town. We’re doing a quiz and I’m three pints in, haven’t eaten much, and I get a phone call from an unknown number and I have a feeling. I’m like, ‘I think this is Bob Iger, but I’m drunk.’”
He answered the call because, duh, you don’t just send Bob Iger to voicemail, and apparently, he wept on the phone while they were talking.
“I was really emotional because I felt like it was all coming to an end,” Tom said.
Thankfully, all parties included were able to work it out, so bb Tom will be in MCU movies until (hopefully) the end of time.
