Bob Iger Details Phone Call He Had With Tom Holland About The Future of 'Spider-Man'

Disney Boss Bob Iger is opening up about that notable phone call between him and Tom Holland that brought the Spider-Man franchise back to the company for one more film.

“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,” Bob shared while speaking with US Weekly recently. “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 continued that the two “had a good conversation” about the franchise and the future of it at Marvel.

“The reason I called him is I knew how important it was to him and I knew how important he was to us,” Bob adds. “He asked to talk to me about it, to express how upset he was. And because of how much I cared about him, I called him. And he said, ‘Please, please.’ He [pleaded] with me. ‘Is there anything you can do? Just please, sir, please? Is there anything that you can do?’ I said, ‘Tom, I will try.’…I immediately got on the phone afterward and started trying.”

If you missed it, Sony and Marvel came to an agreement regarding the franchise for one more film.
