“I was not ready to say goodbye yet”: Tom Holland’s Life Saving Idea Saved His Spider-Man From Potentially Getting Cut From MCU

Tom Holland’s ideas culminated in the co-production of the last film in the trilogy, “Spider-Man: No Way Home”

Spider-Man has been the trailblazer in the comic book pop culture space for more than half a century at this point, and his success in the cinema space has only bolstered his reputation. And when Tom Holland assumed the role of the web-slinger in the MCU’s Spider-Man trilogy, he was able to push the character’s greatness to even greater heights.

But bad news struck when in 2019, Sony and Marvel Studios’ financial agreement fell off, which led to the superhero returning to its original rights holder, and the MCU had to pull him out of the franchise. But Holland wasn’t going to give up that easily, which motivated him to talk with producer Amy Pascal about ideas that could have both studios reaching a mutual conclusion, resulting in the most commercially successful Spider-Man film to date.


Tom Holland’s Ideas For Spider-Man Helped In The Creation Of No Way Home

The Spider-Man films have made lasting impressions on both cinema-goers and comic book fans alike for many years, may it be Sam Raimi’s original trilogy or Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man series. But none of them came close to what Tom Holland managed to achieve with MCU’s trilogy featuring the web-slinger in the franchise.


But this trilogy may have been cut short if Holland hadn’t decided to step in and try to save his most iconic role from being kicked out of the cinematic universe.

After the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, reports started to flood in that Sony, who is the original owner of the character for major motion pictures, and Marvel Studios couldn’t able to reach an agreement on the shared custody of the superhero. Thus, it was later announced that the MCU would be dropping Spider-Man as one of their flagship characters from the franchise.

When the Uncharted star heard about this, he immediately went to producer Amy Pascal to talk about ideas on how to build the superhero without Marvel. He said (via Empire):
“On the day that the announcement happened that I would no longer be in the MCU…

I just drove over to Amy Pascal’s house and sat with her by her pool, and we sat there for hours, just chatting, and pitching movies. How would we do a film without MarvelDoes Peter Parker fall through a portal, and then he’s in the Venom world? Or do we do a Kraven the Hunter film? It was a nice distraction, because as a young kid I was so in love with Marvel, and I was lucky to be a part of that when they took the rug from under my feet, I was not ready to say goodbye yet.”


All these ideas culminated in Sony and Marvel Studios co-producing the last film in the trilogy using the Multiverse, titled Spider-Man: No Way Home, which made a staggering $1.91 Billion at the global box office.

Will We See Venom And Spider-Man Sharing The Screen In The Future?

One of the most shocking end-credit scenes showed Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock and his alter-ego Venom making a cameo in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which gave the fandom hope for a face-off between the two.

And now, as the superhero returns to Sony, the chances of Brock bumping into Peter Parker have shot up exponentially. This has also been bolstered by the fact that Sony may soon start working on a fourth Spider-Man film, which can see Venom being an accomplice or a foe to the friendly neighborhood hero. Thus, one of Holland’s ideas may come to fruition soon.
