Disney CEO Bob Iger discussed Tom Holland’s drunk plea to keep Spider-Man in the MCU in a recent interview.
Earlier this year, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man avoided being removed from the MCU after Disney and Sony were able to reach a new agreement to continue co-producing the Marvel hero’s live-action movies. Later, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that the negotiations were able to resume partly because of a phone conversation between himself and Tom Holland, who was eager to ensure Spider-Man remained an integral part of the MCU.
However, Tom Holland himself would later reveal that he was actually drunk when he received the now-famous call from the Disney CEO about Spider-Man’s MCU future. During an interview with US Weekly, Disney CEO Bob Iger explained that he couldn’ tell if Tom Holland was drunk during their phone call until the Spider-Man star admitted it later on:
“I couldn’t tell if he was drunk, but I called him because I knew that he was upset and he wanted to talk to me about the status of Spider-Man. And at the time that I called him, he was at a pub in, I think, London with his family, and he said, ‘If it’s noisy, I just stepped out of a pub. He sounded a little giddy, but I didn’t really make that connection until I read recently that he said he was a little bit drunk. But he was perfectly nice on the phone. We had a good conversation.”
Fortunately, Tom Holland’s inebriation didn’t seem to negatively impact Spider-Man’s status in the MCU, as the Disney CEO said, “I immediately got on the phone afterward and started trying.”
Tom Holland was most recently seen as the MCU’s wall-crawler in Disney and Sony’s Spider-Man: Far From Home. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.
Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, Numan Acar, J.B. Smoove, Oli Hill, Remy Hii, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-Ray, and DVD. Stay tuned for the latest news on Tom Holland’s future as Spider-Man.
