Chief of Sony at the time, Kaz Hirai, was supposed to announce the third instalment of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise and it was set to release in 2017. According to reports, he did not show up because he was not in the mood to and wanted to be left alone. Back in an interview with a leading daily, the actor had said that he did not get fired. He just did not want to compromise who he was and it was difficult for a few people.

Later, the role of Spider-Man went to Tom Holland, who tried his best to keep the role and even got into a drunk call with one of the big guns to keep his role. He was later seen reprising his role in Avengers: Endgame. Fans of the actor loved his performance and this paved the way for another Spider-Man film.
