Iron Man and Spider-Man have shared a bond in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Captain America: Civil War. Avengers: Infinity War saw Iron Man lose Spidey while Endgame saw Spider-Man lose Iron Man. The relationship between the characters mirrored a father-son relationship that neither of them got to have. It only makes sense for Robert Downey Jr. to look at Tom Holland in the same way, saying “we’re all pretty darned glad u were born” in the tweet.
In Avengers: Endgame, Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man sacrifices himself to save the world. Tom Holland’s Spider-Man took it hard, letting Iron Man know that they won. The scene was one of the most tearjerking moments of the entire Marvel Studios franchise.
Now, Tom Holland will return as Spider-Man in the upcoming movie Spider-Man: Far From Home. In it, he must take over Iron Man’s mantle and protect the world. With a new weight on his shoulders and looming memories of Iron Man, Spider-Man must become a new centerpiece of the Avengers.

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:
Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
The Lion King will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019.
