Tom Holland Confirms A Popular Spider-Man Fan Theory

Written by

What if Spider-Man existed in the Marvel Universe long before Captain America: Civil War? What if Peter Parker actually made an on-screen appearance in Iron Man 2? Well, that Spider-Man fan theory seems to be true. Tom Holland has just confirmed it.

As the theory goes, Peter Parker showed up in Iron Man 2 as a 9-year-old wearing an Iron Man mask, six years before Captain America: Civil War. In a scene that foreshadows their unique relationship in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Peter attempts to help Iron Man in his fight against an Iron Bot. It’s quite remarkable and all takes place in Queens, Spider-Man’s hometown. The scene ends with Tony Stark thanking the young boy by saying, “Nice work, kid!”

Now Tom Holland can confirm that it’s all true:

I can confirm that as of today. I literally had a conversation with Kevin Feige only 20 minutes ago. Maybe I’ve just done a big, old spoiler, but it’s out there now. It’s cool. I like the idea that Peter Parker has been in the universe since the beginning.

Of course, Spider-Man will still under Sony’s control back then. But that didn’t seem to stop Marvel from dropping the hint all the way back then.

Spider-Man: Homecoming opens July 7.

    That theory doesn’t make sense on the fact that where was May? Peter’s parents? They just shoehorned this one in last minute
