Robert Downey Jr. Joins Spider-Man: Homecoming

Captain America: Civil War hits theaters in just two weeks, and the early reviews have already begun trickling in. Unanimously, they are all saying it's a fantastic film. The action is great. The character moments are heartfelt. But one persisting comment is that Tom Holland knocks Spider-Man out of the park. This is generating more and more buzz for the Webslinger's next solo outing in Spider-Man: Homecoming, due in theaters next summer. I am yet to like the title for the next film (you can read my initial thoughts on it here), but I can't wait for the actual film. And even more so, I am excited to see Spidey in Civil War, and how he interactions with the other superheroes. But one superhero interaction from Civil War, however, will continue into Homecoming

It has been confirmed that Robert Downey Jr. will reprise his role as Iron Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

I am thrilled by this! The more performances of Downey Jr. as Iron Man as we can get the better, because I don't think he'll be doing many after Infinity War. This leaves me with many questions about his role in Homecoming. It can't be just a small cameo, because they wouldn't have announced it this early on. This must mean that Iron Man has a significant and large role in the film. Plus, they wouldn't have gotten him if it was a smaller role. From the Civil War and the previous Avengers contract negotiations, we know that Downey Jr. isn't cheap. They wouldn't have gotten him for this movie if it wasn't for a large role, unless he took a massive pay cut. So how does Iron Man fit into Homecoming? I'm not exactly sure. We don't know yet what the story exactly is, so it's hard to speculate as to how Iron Man fits into all of it. But I can say that I am excited that he's in the movie, and that he will be more than just a cameo.

What do you think? Are you happy that Robert Downey Jr. will be in Spider-Man: Homecoming? How could Iron Man fit into the story? How large of a role do you think he'll have? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
