Was there an Iron Man 2 Spider-Man cameo appearance?! Tom Holland confirms retcon Easter Egg
A very cool fan theory has been confirmed by Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland. You may have read about the Iron Man 2 Spider-Man appearance here and there. Basically, the theory is that the little Iron Man fan who holds up his hand to fight one of the Hammer drones in the 2010 film was none other than Peter Parker.
When speaking to Huffington Post, Holland confirmed the Iron Man 2 Spider-Man, or at least Peter Parker, appearance.
“It is Peter Parker,” he says. “I can confirm that, that is Peter Parker. I can confirm that as of today. I literally had a conversation with Kevin Feige only 20 minutes ago. Maybe I’ve just done a big, old spoiler, but it’s out there now. It’s cool. I like the idea that Peter Parker has been in the universe since the beginning.”
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.
Spider-Man: Homecoming also stars Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Donald Glover and Tyne Daly.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming was written by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley, Jon Watts & Christopher Ford, and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers. The film is produced by Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal, and executive produced by Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Jeremy Latcham, and Stan Lee.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will swing into theaters on July 7. A sequel is already scheduled for July 5, 2019 and Tom Holland recently confirmed a third film is also in the works.
