Tom Holland's Response To Spidey Staying In The MCU Was Perfect
- Published: 02 October 2019
- Marvel fans across the globe are celebrating that Spider-Man won't be making an abrupt exit from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Tom Holland is right there with them.
The star of Spider-Man: Far From Home joined much of Twitter in reacting with pure elation to the news that Sony Pictures and Disney, the parent company of Marvel Studios, have reached an agreement to keep the wall-crawler in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for one more Spider-Man solo movie and another Marvel Studios production.
Thousands of fans have endured more than a month of heartbreak as Spidey's future in the MCU has languished in limbo.
In recent weeks, the outlook for ol' web-head's potential return has been particularly grim. Sony Pictures chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra publicly stated that, quote, "the door is closed" on re-upping the deal between the two studios, and the recent news that Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige would be hopping across the hall to produce a Star Wars movie left many fans with the impression that he only had time to do so because of the distinct absence of a third Spider-Man movie.
This thankfully turned out not to be the case. Of course, Spidey fans are thrilled. In the immediate aftermath of the announcement that Sony and Disney had agreed to play nice, Twitter absolutely exploded with an outpouring of jubilation from fans and media outlets alike.
CinemaBlend posted a short clip of Peter Parker disintegrating in the arms of Tony Stark near the end of Avengers: Infinity War, but in reverse. The caption?
"Mr. Stark, I feel good."
Who knew young Peter was a James Brown fan?
Another Twitter user posted fan art depicting the famous scene from Spider-Man: Homecoming in which Spidey attempts to keep the Staten Island Ferry from splitting in half using nothing but his webs, super-strength, and sheer determination. In the rendering, the two halves of the ferry are marked with banners featuring the respective logos of Sony and Disney, and the caption reads,
"Mr. Stark… I did it for you!!"
Of course, the name and image of Parker's late mentor was invoked early and often in all of the reactions. One that really got us was a still from Avengers: Endgame in which a dozen different emotions are visible on Stark's face as he embraces his young protege, who had just recently returned from being dusted for five years.
