Stars relieved by Spidey’s return to Marvel universe
Tom Holland, who plays Spider-Man in the blockbuster “Avengers” franchise and solo films, celebrated the end of the contentious summer feud between Walt Disney Co. and Sony Pictures – and the inevitability that his webslinger would appear in future Marvel Cinematic Universe films coproduced by the rival studios.
Holland took to Instagram to celebrate Friday’s development by posting a clip from 2013’s “Wolf of Wall Street” with star Leonardo DiCaprio shouting, “I’m not leaving.”
His co-star Zendaya, who plays his pal and love interest MJ in the “Homecoming” saga, also welcomed the news on Twitter with a dancing SpiderMan GIF.
Under the new deal, Spider-Man will return for another film in the “Avengers” saga and also appear in a solo film that will again be co-produced by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Sony’s Amy Pascal. The third film in the “Spider-Man: Homecoming “series has been scheduled for release on July 16, 2021.
Actress Zendaya, who plays Peter Parker’s pal and love interest MJ in the Spider-Man saga, welcomed news of a rapprochement between Walt Disney Co. and Sony Pictures on Twitter with a dancing Spider-Man GIF.
