Marvel fans might disappointed when they heard that Sony and Disney found themselves at ends over their Spider-Man agreement last year,  however the studios were finally able to come to a deal thanks to the Tom Holland who pushed the Mickey Mouse House to keep Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Now, after fixing up the deal with Sony, Disney CEO Bob Iger wants a little something in return from the British actor.

Taking to Twitter to talk about the global premiere of Disney Pixar’s latest release, Onward, Iger opened up about meeting with his friends from Marvel, Chris Pratt and Tom Holland. The Avengers: Endgame stars lent their voices for Pixar’s new computer-animated urban fantasy movie and Iger was happy to share the photos he took with the actors.

In his post, the Disney CEO also couldn’t help but jokingly remind Holland about saving Spider-Man, saying that the comic book movie star owes him a “pint” of what we assume to be beer.

“Last night's premiere of @Pixar latest film, #Onward, gave me a chance to see @MarvelStudios friends--#ChrisPratt and #TomHolland! Tom owes me a "pint" for saving @SpiderMan!” Iger wrote on his tweet.

It’s a cute post really. We’re glad to see that Disney somehow found a way to keep Spider-Man in the MCU for two more years, though we’re hoping that the wall-crawler stays for even longer. Fans fell in love with Holland’s version of Spidey ever since he appeared in Captain America: Civil War, and they’d love to see more of him in future Marvel films.

Phase 4 of the MCU begins when Black Widow premieres on May 1, 2020.
