"Listen, it's been a crazy week, but I want you to know, I am grateful from the bottom of my heart, and I love you 3000," Holland said.

After the D23 panel, the actor told EW that he will continue playing the role of the masked superhero.

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

It was announced on Tuesday that a standoff between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures has ended Marvel and producer Kevin Feige's involvement with the Spider-Man film franchise.

Feige was the creative lead on Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home, which is now Sony's highest-grossing film ever.
