Los Angeles, Oct 15 (IANS) Actor Tom Holland says the period of feud between Disney and Sony Pictures over Spider-Man, was the most stressful time of his life.

The 23-year-old actor opened up about the feud during an appearance at ACE Comic Con Midwest in Chicago on Sunday, reports dailymail.co.uk.

Asked when he had been most stressed, Holland said: “Well, maybe the whole Disney/Sony thing when that happened, that was a bit of a stressful week. I’m sure there’s some contractual obliged where I can’t say anything about anything, so I’m just going to keep my mouth shut.”

Last month, it was announced that Holland’s Spider-Man will not be leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as Sony Pictures and Marvel struck a deal for one more movie.

The two companies announced that Marvel Studios and its president, Kevin Feige, will produce the third film in the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” series. It will once again feature Holland as the web slinging hero. The new film even has a release date — July 16, 2021.

In the clip, DiCaprio’s character says “You know what? I’m not leaving. I’m not leaving. I’m not f***ing leaving!”, with the group of men surrounding him celebrating the moment wildly.

Holland used the clip to express his emotions, without any words. He captioned it with a smirking emoji.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Holland he used his role as Nathan Drake in Sony’s new film as leverage to persuade the pair to strike a bargain.

According to sources, the actor made several appeals to Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger and Sony film chairman Tom Rothman to make a deal.

Holland was introduced as Spider Man in “Captain America: Civil War” in 2016. Iron Man’s popularity was used to bring back the “Spider Man” franchise. Holland got his first solo movie with “Spider Man: Homecoming” — which took the superhero back to school. He came back as the superhero with his second solo movie “Spider Man: Far From Home” this year.
