“I wouldn’t say it was entirely my doing,” Holland said, jokingly adding, “I saved Spider-Man!”

He explained that after hearing the news that Spider-Man was out of the MCU, he wanted to send Disney CEO Bob Iger a thank-you email.

“I got his email, I sent him the email, and he responded very quickly saying, ‘I’d love to jump on the phone with you at some point — when are you free?'” Holland recalled. “And you don’t give Bob Iger a schedule. You’re like, ‘Whenever, Bob!'”

Unfortunately for Holland, that call came when he was out drinking at a pub trivia night.

“I get a phone call from an unknown number, and I have a feeling like, I think this is Bob Iger… but I’m drunk,” he said.

Holland also revealed that he actually got a bit emotional and teary during the call, but thankfully it all turned out well in the end.
