Tom Holland breaks silence on 'Spider-Man' split from Marvel

"Spider-Man" star Tom Holland was diplomatic about his beloved character's split from the Marvel Universe. At Disney's D23 convention, the 23-year-old British actor quoted Robert Downey Jr.'s famous Tony Stark line from "Avengers: Endgame," telling the crowd, “It’s been a crazy week, and I love you all from the bottom of my heart, and I love you 3,000." Last week, it was reported that the cross-studio partnership between Disney and Sony, which allowed Holland’s Spider-Man to appear in Marvel films such as “Avengers: Endgame”, and Marvel Studios to have a hand in producing stand-alone Spider-Man films like this summer’s “Far From Home,” was ending. — Fox News
