Robert Downey Jr. brings Iron-Man to “Spider-Man Homecoming”
It looks like the new Spider-Man film will include more superheroes than fans may had hoped for. Robert Downey Jr. will appear in the Sony film “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” as his Marvel character Tony Stark.
Tom Holland will first play “Spider-Man” in the Marvel film “Captain America: Civil War,” he then will lead the Sony film “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” set to release a little over a year later.
Holland’s Peter Parker will meet Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark in “Captain America,” and now it looks like the two sarcastic scientists will carry their new relationship into the follow-up film.
It was confirmed earlier this year that Jon Watts would be directing “Spider-man Homecoming” for Sony. The script was written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. Producing the film are Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal.
Sony has kept the details of the film closely under-wraps, but given the age of the castings, Spidey will still be in high-school at this point. In the popular “Captain America: Civil War” promo that introduced Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tony Stark called Spider-Man “Underoos” just before he entered the screen, stealing Captain America’s shield.
Spider-Man’s suit and web-slinger’s (in the comics) could take quite a bit of technical know-how to create. Not that Spidey isn’t a bright lad, but Stark’s introduction to Parker in high-school could mean that Stark has helped Peter Parker create his Spidey tools.
Fans excited to see the film should set a reminder for July 7, 2017. Marvel fans can catch “Captain America: Civil War” when the film opens on May 7, 2016.
