Comic book movie fans around the world were delighted when it was announced that Sony had allowed Marvel to take control of Spider-Man and add the character to their hugely impressive Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since then, we have seen Tom Holland cast in the role, with Spider-Man appearing in the trailer for Captain America: Civil War.
Earlier this week, it was announced that the new Spider-Man reboot movie would be titled Spider-Man: Homecoming, which has led to many people talking about which other Marvel characters we will see appearing in the film. If Spider-Man: Homecoming was to follow the comics then we would get to see Iron Man and Captain America appearing, with Robert Downey Jr. being up for the gig.
Jimmy Kimmel tried to lead Robert Downey Jr. into giving the game away by saying, "It’s exciting for the Spider-Man movie, Which Iron Man will be a part of.” However, the actor is very experienced at things like this and simply replied saying, "Perhaps, I will. I don’t have a contract yet." We all know that even if he did have a contract, he would not tell us.
We will first get to see Spider-Man making his debut appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. Meanwhile, the Spider-Man standalone will see Tom Holland starring alongside Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, and Zendaya, with the movie being directed by Jon Watts and aiming for a release date on June 7, 2017 in the US and June 28, 2017 in the UK.
