Peter Parker and Tony Stark are back together: Avengers: Endgame stars Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr. recently reunited amid reports of Spider-Man leaving Marvel.

Both stars went hiking together on Thursday, with Holland uploading pictures of the duo’s fun day out on Instagram, People.com reported. In one of the adorable selfies, Holland is holding an Iron Man action figure, while Downey holds a Spider-Man action figure.

“We did it Mr. Stark!” Holland wrote below the post, which has received more than 10 million likes.

Holland’s pictures follow multiple reports of Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige failing to form an agreement that would enable Spider-Man to stay in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Sony Pictures shared a statement on Wednesday, confirming that Feige will not be producing the next live action Spider-Man film due to “many new responsibilities that Disney has given him.”

Many people, including Hawkeye actor Jeremy Renner, were not happy about the web-slinging hero leaving the MCU and slammed Sony’s actions on social media, stating that they “want Spider-Man back to [Marvel Comics co-creator] Stan Lee and Marvel.”

Spider-Man artist Todd McFarlane also believes that Disney and Sony won’t come up with a deal for Spider-Man, since Sony is less likely to budge on what Disney wants out of the agreement.

“If I was the executive of Sony I’d say no. I’d go I’m not giving you…they want to jump it from what I’m hearing from a 10 percent take to a 50 percent take,” McFarlane told BNN Bloomberg in an interview. “I don’t know what executive is going to give them that jump.”
