Spider-Man: Homecoming will see Tony Stark being a part of Peter Parker's story, and we've seen several footage of the character in the two trailers released so far, but how much are we going to see him in the actual film? It turns out that we'll only see him quite a bit. Producer Eric Caroll revealed to Screen Rant that Iron Man has only 5 or 6 scenes with Peter Parker, and if that's accurate, we've probably seen bits of each one of them in the trailers already. This is sufficient enough to develop Stark's relationship with Parker as Caroll elaborates:

"I think we're seeing the beginning of a sort of father-son relationship. Obviously Tony hasn't got any kids, and Peter at this point hasn't got any male figures in his life, so I think there's a really lovely dynamic that Robert and I are forming. And, no, let me take that back. I think Robert is more like a big brother than he is a father figure because he picks on him and he is down on him quite a lot. But then there is that level of him caring about him like his own, and Robert has really brought something lovely to the character. It's a very different side of Stark than you've ever seen before."

I'm not surprised that we'll only see Stark appear a few times. After all, this isn't an Avengers or Iron Man film. Homecoming is Parker's moment to shine, and I'm hyped to see how Iron Man will be an integral part of the story, as the recent trailer hinted.


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 is set for a release on July 7.
