Twitter has been up in arms ever since Sony and Marvel parted ways, effectively yanking the web-head from the MCU. The hashtags “Boycott Sony” and “Save Spider-Man” were among the top trends in the world for a long time following the news and Tom Holland, the actor who plays Peter Parker, was also being mentioned heavily all over social media as fans speculated what the 23-year-old was thinking as this was all breaking.
While some stars may relish the opportunity to be the center of attention, this guy’s clearly not one of them. According to Holland, trending on Twitter really isn’t all its cracked up to be.
“It’s been a crazy week, a lot to take in. Trending on Twitter is always not the best thing for me, I’m quite a private person.”
He went on to say:
“We don’t really know what the future holds for Spider-Man. All I know is it’s not the end of my run, and we’ll continue to make great movies, and I love making it, and I hope the fans will continue to love watching them. And who knows what’s gonna happen? But I do know that it’s gonna be great.”
MORE FROM THE WEB
It’s definitely true that we don’t know what’s going to happen next to the beloved character. Even Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige can’t seem to get his story straight on how he thinks this is all going to play out. He’s said publicly that he doesn’t think Peter Parker was meant to be in the MCU forever, while simultaneously pushing Disney to work out a deal to bring the wise-cracking web-slinger back to the cinematic universe.
Neither side appears to be close to ending the standoff as of right now, but fans are still hoping that it can be resolved without Spider-Man exiting the MCU. As always, watch this space for more.
