Spider-Man is staying in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and a new report reveals that star Tom Holland may have been the one who saved the web-slinger.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Holland, 23, stepped in after Sony and Disney confirmed that they would not co-produce the third “Spider-Man” movie in the Jon Watts-directed trilogy.

Holland has ties to both studios outside of playing Peter Parker. He is leading “Uncharted” for Sony and voicing a character in “Onward” for Disney. THR says he “made multiple appeals to Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger and Sony film chairman Tom Rothman to reach a resolution.”

The breakup was announced Aug. 20, but Holland was at D23 Expo promoting the Pixar flick that weekend. He tried to diplomatically answer questions.

“All I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it,” the actor told Entertainment Weekly at the August event. “The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”

However, it seems he made his feelings clear to the executives after the Disney fan convention ended: he wants to stay in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The studios announced their reunion on Sept. 27.

For now, the deal has been extended for one solo film with Sony and one MCU film from Disney’s Marvel Studios. The latter will contribute 25% of the budget and receive 25% of the profits.

The actor made it clear that he was delighted with the deal. He posted a clip from “The Wolf of Wall Street” on his social media to celebrate.

The third “Spider-Man” movie is scheduled to swing into theaters on July 16, 2021.
