Tom Holland is understandably excited about the news that Spider-Man will be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Following the joint announcement that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios will partner for a third film in the Spider-Man: Homecoming trilogy, Holland posted a clip from The Wolf of Wall Street to his Instagram account.
Holland included a simple winking emoticon as the cherry on top of his reaction. Leonardo DiCaprio's character is quoted as saying "I'm not leaving" in the clip, echoing Holland's feelings of not Spider-Man not leaving the MCU. His co-star Zendaya also shared her reaction on social media, posting a GIF of Spider-Man performing a spirited dance.
Last month, Sony and Marvel reached a standoff over rights to the character. Reportedly, Disney asked for all future Spider-Man projects to be a 50/50 co-financing arrangement between Marvel and Sony but the latter declined. Instead, Sony proposed leaving the current deal untouched, meaning Marvel would continue to receive approximately 5% of first-dollar gross while maintaining merchandising rights, which Disney refused. News of the split left many fans wondering what the future would hold for Spider-Man and the MCU.
Helmed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far from Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal. The film is now available on Digital HD and arrives on Blu-ray and 4K UHD Oct. 1.
A third film in the Spider-Man: Homecoming series is scheduled to hit theaters on July 16, 2021.
