UPDATED: According to Deadline Micheal Keaton has fallen out of talks to play the big bad of Spideys solo venture.
Hot off the heals of Spider-Man’s introduction to the MCU in Captain America: Civil War, it looks like a big character from the MCU will be joining Spider-Man: Homecoming. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Robert Downey Jr has closed a deal and will be bringing Tony Stark/ Iron Man to the cast of the spidey solo film.
This marks Robert Downey JR’s second renegotiation to play Iron Man. The first was when he re-upped to join the casts of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2. Details are slim to none on this deal so it could be very likely that Downey JR could have added a few more films to his contract.
