Spider-Man star Tom Holland has revealed that he would rather see Robert Downy Jr’s Iron Man return over introducing a new version of Uncle Ben.
Tom Holland’s introduction into the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a welcome addition but not without its road bumps or elephants in the room. One of the more notable absences from the Marvel Cinematic Universe from Spider-Man lore, however, is that of Uncle Ben. In the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy Uncle Ben was played by the late Cliff Robertson and by Martin Sheen in The Amazing Spider-Man films but has yet to even be mentioned in the MCU.
Many have pointed out, however, that Iron Man seems to be acting as a kind of stand-in for the role of Uncle Ben. Iron Man seemed to be Tom Holland’s mentor in the film and imparting the lessons that are usually reserved for Uncle Ben. Even a big part of Spider-Man: Far From Home revolved around Tom Holland’s character getting over Iron Man’s death. But from the sound of things, Tom Holland would like to work with Iron Man one last time over having Uncle Ben in the films.
During a recent interview with IGN, Tom Holand was asked if he could bring back Uncle Ben, his parents, Gwen Stacy or Iron Man which would he choose.
“It would have to be Tony Stark. It would have to be him because I love working with Robert so much, and if I could do another day with him, it would be great fun.”
