Tom Holland has broken his silence about Spider-Man's future following the news that Disney and Sony failed to reach a deal on new films featuring the superhero.

It was reported this week that the two studios failed to reach a new deal over financial control meaning that the character could depart the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It would also prevent other MCU characters appearing in any of his Spider-Man films.

Holland addressed the debacle at Disney's 23 Expo in California, telling the crowd: "It's been a crazy week, but I want you to know that I am grateful from the bottom of my heart, and I love you 3,000."

Speaking backstage afterwards, the British actor told Entertainment Weekly: "Basically, we've made five great movies.

"It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds? But all I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life.

"It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it. The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler."

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige also opened up about the future of Spider-Man.

"I'm feeling about Spider-Man gratitude and joy," he said. "We got to make five films within the MCU with Spider-Man: two standalone films and three with the Avengers.

"It was a dream that I never thought would happen. It was never meant to last forever. We knew there was a finite amount of time that we’d be able to do this, and we told the story we wanted to tell, and I’ll always be thankful for that."

Holland's last movie as the superhero, Spider-Man: Far From Home, was released in July to critical and box office success. It has since become Sony's highest grossing film of all time with $1.1 billion worldwide.
