Tom Holland Responds To News Spider-Man Is Staying In The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Tom Holland has responded to the news that he's staying in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and set to star in two brand new films with a sweary clip from Wolf of Wall Street.
Posting to his Instagram, Holland shared the clip showing Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) informing his colleagues he's 'not f****** leaving' adding a smirking emoji beside it.
Meanwhile, co-star Zendaya shared a gif of Spider-Man dancing around. Seems like they're both pretty happy then, eh?
The posts come as Sony and Disney announced they'd agreed on a deal to keep Spider-Man within the MCU and they've also released the date for the upcoming third movie - 16 July 2021, so not too long wait. As part of the deal, Spider-Man is also set to appear in another future MCU movie.
Kevin Feige told Variety: "I am thrilled that Spidey's journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it.
"Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold."
While Amy Pascal, who worked on the first two Tom Holland Spider-Man movies and will be producing the third, added: "This is terrific. Peter Parker's story took a dramatic turn in Far From Home and I could not be happier we will all be working together as we see where his journey goes."
Fans were left concerned that Spider-Man - currently played by Holland - would be removed from the MCU over contractual issues between Sony, which owns the licence, and Disney, which recently bought Marvel.
It looked even less likely we'd see Holland donning his Spidey-suit again when Sony chairman and chief executive officer Tony Vinciquerra said 'the door is closed' on future talks - but thankfully it looks like he's had a change of heart - at least for two more movies. Roll on July 2021.
