Robert Downey Jr. will take Marvel and Disney’s Iron Man character over to Sony where he’ll appear in the new Spider-Man movie.
The news was confirmed by the Spider-Man: Homecoming Twitter page, with the tweet: “OFFICIAL:
@RobertDowneyJr signs on for #SpiderMan: Homecoming”.
Although there isn’t much else confirmed about his appearance, reports suggests that Downey will appear onscreen in the Iron Man suit.
We know Tom Holland will make his debut as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War as part of Team Iron Man. So perhaps Downey will feature in a flashback focused on how the two characters were introduced.
OR, if their encounter is set in the future, does this mean Tony Stark wins in Civil War? Does this also mean rumours of Captain America’s demise are true? *Breaks out into tears*.
We’ll have to wait and see.
In the meantime, Michael Keaton, who had signed up to play a villain in Homecoming, may withdraw from the flick.
According to reports, his deal may not work and Sony could soon on the hunt for a new antagonist.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is scheduled for release in July next year.
