If you’ve seen the new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer that was released online today, then you already know that Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark will have a pretty large role in the film, as will other characters that inhabit his world. We already know that Jon Faverau will reprise his Happy Hogan role, but that might not be the only returning character from Stark’s life to appear in the film.
Lainey Gossip is reporting that Gwyneth Paltrow will reprise her role of Pepper Potts in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Paltrow’s contract with Marvel had previously expired, but it seems Marvel has no problem orchestrating her return now that Sony is footing the bill for the film.
Potts hasn’t been seen since in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2013’s Iron Man 3. It was mentioned in Captain America: Civil War that Stark and Pepper broke up, but maybe we’ll see them patch things up in Spider-Man.
Here’s the official synopsis for Spider-Man: Homecoming:
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.
Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters July 7, 2017. Directed by Jon Watts, the film stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice, Abraham Attah, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
