Robert Downey Jr. joins SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING!

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., is set to appear in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming as Tony Stark, aka Iron Man. The pair share some screen time in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War and their relationship will be further expanded on in the 2017 film.

Unfortunately, it is also reported that Michael Keaton- previously reported to be in talks for the film’s villain role- will not be involved after all.

“It really is a homecoming,” leading man Tom Holland, who plays the webslinger, told the CinemaCon crowd during the film’s title announcement, “because, throughout the movie, Peter is trying to find out who he is and where he belongs in this world.”

The Spider-Man Homecoming cast is also set to include Marisa Tomei as Aunt May and Zendaya as a character by the name of Michelle, with Laura Harrier (One Life to Live) and Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel) set to play two of Peter’s other friends.

Homecoming is scripted by Vacation writers and directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein and will be directed by Jon Watts. Production is set to begin on the film this summer in Atlanta with the film swinging into theaters and IMAX on July 7, 2017.
