“Spider-Man: No Way Home” promises to be one of Marvel’s most ambitious and unpredictable movies yet, and it’s going to open up the Multiverse in ways in which it hasn’t been explored before. That’s because Disney, Marvel and Sony have well and truly opened the forbidden door, allowing characters from every live-action iteration of the “Spider-Man” franchise in recent memory to make an appearance. Tom Holland will continue to play the wise-cracking webslinger, but rumor has it he’ll be joined by predecessors such as Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as well. That last part isn’t confirmed, but we do know that some blast-from-the-past villains will be there, wreaking havoc like only they can.

It goes without saying that “Spider-Man: No Way Home” has come a long way, and the film’s very existence epitomizes the power of movie studios coming together to service the fans in a big way. However, it wasn’t that long ago when Spidey’s MCU future was up in the air following the brief split between Marvel and Sony. Fortunately, the competing mega powers managed to put their differences aside for the greater good. 

For a while, though, Tom Holland had his doubts about playing the arachnid crusader, and made a pretty bold move.

Tom Holland drove to the producer's house

When the news broke that Sony and Disney had seemingly ended their ultimate alliance regarding the “Spider-Man” character, Tom Holland was as vexed as the millions of superhero fans around the world. However, he remained adamant about playing the webslinger, which led to him driving right up to the house of Sony Pictures executive and producer Amy Pascal to discuss movie ideas.

Holland opened up about the experience in an interview with Empire (per Screen Rant), revealing that as the two sat by the pool, he suggested pitting Spidey against some iconic villains, and generally trying to find a solution for the new dilemma. 

“[We] sat there for hours, just chatting, and pitching movies,” he revealed. “How would we do a film without Marvel? Does 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 […]”

The actor went on to say that idea pitches aside, the whole situation was heartbreaking to deal with. “[A]s a young kid I was so in love with Marvel, and I was so lucky to be a part of it that when they took the rug from under my feet, I was not ready to say goodbye yet.” 

Sure enough, Holland — like all the other fans out there — was over the moon when Sony and Disney squashed their beef. Furthermore, he might still get to mix it up with the likes of Kraven and Venom in the future, if a recent post-credits sequence is anything to go by.
