A new 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' featurette spotlights the student / mentor relationship between Peter Parker and Tony Star / Iron Man.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the wall crawler’s first solo film in world occupied by other heroes and joining the titular character in his mission to thwart The Vulture will be tech-genius Tony Stark/Iron Man. Now, a new featurette has been released where stars Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr. discuss the student/mentor relationship between Peter Parker and Tony Stark.

Holland talked about Peter’s goal in the film and how he views the web slinger’s relationship with Tony.

“Peter Parker is constantly learning throughout the movie and he is trying to prove himself to Tony that he is ready to be an Avenger. He is old enough to take on bigger tasks. I saw that relationship as, like, a big brother relationship.”

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, 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.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released in theaters on July 7, 2017.
