As it turns, Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland has also been wondering about that, and he just confirmed a fun fan theory about his character's place in the MCU that involves a small retcon to 2010's Iron Man 2.
For years, it was one of the better fan theories out there, and now it's confirmed to be true: Peter Parker was in Iron Man 2. Although Holland first appeared in last year's Captain America: Civil War, it appears that Peter Parker's origins in the expanded universe happened long before that. This little scene led to the fan theory that this boy was in fact a young Peter Parker.
Good news for Spidey fans: there are new Spider-Man clips to sample as you wait for the film to be released on 7 July. Now, plans have been revealed for Tom Holland to return for a sequel to next month's Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2019 that will begin the next phase of the MCU. He's grown up in the MCU; when Peter Parker was eight years old, he saw Tony Stark say "I am Iron Man" on TV.More news: Victorious Nadal Describes French Open As Magic
"In the meantime, I think Miles is a big part of the animated movie that Sony's making", Feige said. "It's never happening", in reference to Venom specifically showing up in his Spider-Man movies.
So what does Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Tom Holland think about the possibility of the two teaming up? Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man.
So it sounds like he got an okay from Kevin Feige to say that, but that's it. The cast is rounded off by Robert Downey Jr, Michael Keaton and Marisa Tomei. "Much like, as we went into Homecoming, we knew all the general pillars, you then need the magic of the writers and directors to bring it all to life", he said.
