As the plot “superheroes versus superheroes” is becoming more popular these days, many fans might have been awaiting for official confirmation of Robert Downey Jr.’s inclusion in the cast of “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”


While the participation of Iron Man has been confirmed, it was clarified that it will not be a battle between them. Remember that Spider-Man was in Tony Stark’s team in “Captain America: Civil War.”

It can be noted that he was personally recruited by the gold-and-red armor-clad superhero because he believes the web-slinging ally could be the “greatest non-lethal weapon” of his team.

With the Russo brothers in charge of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and the undeniable chemistry of Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Holland, “Jungle Book” director Jon Favreau hinted during an interview with IGN that it is going to be something every Marvel fan must look forward to.

“I think Spider-Man made me smile every second the character was on the screen,” Favreau, who directed the first “Iron Man” film, said. “I was so pleased with the tone of the film in general, but those sequences specifically, and I just loved the way they introduced the character.”

“I love the version of Tony Stark I saw, especially in those scenes,” he added about the highly-anticipated “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

“As somebody who was part of the beginning of the screen persona of Tony Stark, I thought that this was really impressive and a wonderful expansion of that character.”

In the meantime, The Independent UK’s review of Tom Holland’s performance in “Captain America: Civil War” suggested that his appearance “is by no means the only good thing” about the film.

The news site’s movie critic Ben Child noted that “He gives as good as he gets and more, a dazzling, spinning, websplurting, whirling superhero dervish pinging from surface to surface with devastating grace and power.”
