He is inspired by the actor's work ethic, sharing in the new issue of GQ Style why he has modeled his career after The Rock. He's so inspired by the buff star, Holland noted: "I was like, 'I'm going to the f**king gym'". "Is this person taking a picture of me?' The pressure of that".

For weeks, ever since we first got wind that Spider-Man could be on his way out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we've been hopeful that Sony and Disney would be able to come to some sort of agreement that would allow Spidey to stick around for the upcoming ambitious phases - especially given how things ended in Spider-Man: Far From Home.


"What's nice about golf is it's the most humbling sport", Holland explains. "I really am nothing but grateful, and I've made friends for life along the way", he added. There were a lot of ups and downs, and he kept walking into our office and we'd go, 'Look, we've got to do it with [Sony],' and he'd go, 'OK, I'll figure it out, ' and walk back into his.

Reinforcing Sony's official explanation as to why the deal fell through, Vinciquerra said Marvel's Kevin Feige was being "stretched incredibly thin" with the X-Men and Fantastic Four coming to the MCU, leaving him precious little time to work on Spider-Man, a character whose movie rights are controlled by Sony. So it was a nice eye-opener for me that, like, you can work in this industry and be at that level and not be a d***.


Holland will continue to play the character and explained in an email to the interviewer after the news of the Sony and Marvel split broke: "I'm not shy about expressing how incredible the last five years have been with Marvel".

"Listen, it's been a insane week, but I want you to know, I am grateful from the bottom of my heart, and I love you 3000", Holland had said. While on the screen MJ learning Peter's secret in Far From Home kind of defined the future of the on-screen romantic duo, the Marvel and Sony conflict has resulted in their on-screen separation too.


Zendaya's ex-boyfriend and Spider-man, Tom Holland wished her on Instagram sharing her picture, which reads, "The birthday girl! hope you're having an fantastic day".
