In case you were wondering how much of Iron Man you’ll see in Spider-Man: Homecoming, you’ll see him quite a bit. Producer Eric Carroll tells Screen Rant that Stark has around 5 or 6 scenes with Peter Parker…which sounds like more than enough to establish a decent bond between the characters! Carroll elaborates more on that bond below:
“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.”
5 to 6 scenes is a hell of a lot more than I was expecting! Are you happy that Stark is in the film, or do you think he’s only going to get in the way of telling Spider-Man’s story? Let us know below.
