Speaking on the Jimmy Kimmel Live, Spider-Man's Tom Holland jokingly stated that he "saved" the Web-Slinger and then revealed the particular way in which he did it.

To the delight of many Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) fans, it was announced two months ago that Spider-Man would not be leaving the MCU anytime soon.

The story goes that Holland asked for Bob Iger's (CEO of Disney) email to say thank you.

Holland chose to reach out to Iger via email just to thank him for the chance to be a part of the MCU, but the Disney CEO responded by asking to discuss the matter on the phone - and the call came in while the 23-year-old was unwinding with his family at the pub. However, when the big call finally came, Holland was in a pub with his family and had already drank three beers. Bob Iger himself confirmed it happened, but now we have the juicy details from Holland himself about how it all went down.

Tom Holland might have singlehandedly saved Spider-man - and he was definitely drunk when he did it. Telling stories about his family, talking about working with the Russo brothers again, and more, Holland clearly loves what he's doing and is willing to put in the work to get further in his career.

"I weeped", Holland continued. We're doing a quiz and I'm like 3 pints in, right?

Tom Holland revealed that a pub phone call with Disney CEO Bob Iger helped keep Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The news first emerged while Holland, who made his debut as Spider-Man/Peter Parker in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, was attending Disney's D23 Expo in August, and he was banned from posing for photos with the rest of his Avengers co-stars.

Of course, Tom's dad urged him to pick up the phone and Tom spoke with Iger for a while.

"I felt like it was all coming to an end", Holland said.

The conversation ended up being a positive one, as Sony and Marvel reached a resolution in September, which offers a solid future for the Spider-Man franchise. "We've built such a strong character in that world and it would have been a shame to lose that, but I'm just really glad we managed to work it out". "Thank you for changing my life in the best way and I hope that we can work together in the future, '" Holland told Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday night.
