‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Star Tom Holland On Peter & Tony’s Evolving Relationship In The MCU

Spider-Man Homecoming Tony StarkWhen Peter Parker was first introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe he was practically plucked out of his niche and thrown into this huge airport brawl between Iron Man and Captain America. Tony Stark recruits a young Peter Parker and automatically assumes the role of mentor/Father figure, giving him a new costume as well as battling his own team besides him. So far all the trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming show that this relationship will continue to grow and it appears the stars think so as well.

While speaking to the press during a junket for Homecoming, Tom Holland had this to say about Peter and Tony’s evolving relationship:

“I think the relationship between the two of us is more interesting from your point of view [looks at Downey Jr.] because you suddenly have someone to think about other than Tony Stark. He really cares about Peter and one of the reasons he doesn’t really want Peter to become an Avenger is because he doesn’t want the responsibilities of something happening to Peter on his conscience. So it’s a nice back-and-forth of me saying ‘Look, I’m powerful enough to be an Avenger!’ ad him saying ‘But you are not ready to be an Avenger’. So it’s a fun back-and-forth, it’s like a big/little brother [and] dad/son type situation.”

“A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened. “

Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Battalion, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr.

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theater July 7, 2017 and after that, Peter and Tony will meet again in May 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War.

Marvel AvengersMarvel Studios President Kevin Feige has officially said he’s holding back on reveals about the Marvel Cinematic Universe until after Avengers 4. With Feige holding information close to the chest, it seems likely big changes are set to hit the MCU soon.

Now that the MCU is more than fifteen films strong, I expect new characters and dramatic team shakeups soon so fans stay invested. There are a lot of things I wish could happen to the MCU, but I’m only talking about things I consider a real possibility here. Yeah, I’d love for the X-Men and the Fantastic Four to join the MCU, but I don’t expect that anytime soon. At the moment, Captain America and Wolverine will never hit the trenches together, but just know that would be number 1 on my list if Fox and Disney had a better relationship.

Hit Next to learn about some of the changes I think are coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future!
