Spider-Man: Homecoming–Robert Downey Jr to Co-Star as Tony Stark

Robert Downey Jr. will appear in  Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming as Tony Stark.

Following chemistry Downey and “Spider-Man” star Tom Holland had in “Captain America: Civil War,” Sony and Marvel worked hard to get these two back together for the “Spider-Man” reboot.  The size of the role is unknown at this time.

Jon Watts is directing “Homecoming” from a script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. Kevin Feige and former Sony exec Amy Pascal are producing the movie, which focuses on a teenage Peter Parker’s high school days.

Plot details are still being heavily guarded.

Holland’s Spider-Man will first make an appearance in the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War” before his standalone pic. Production on “Homecoming” is expected to start this summer.

The pic opens on July 7, 2017 with Tony Revolori and Laura Harrier also on board. Michael Keaton had been tapped as the villains but sources now say his deal may not work and the search may be on yet again for a new antagonist.

“Captain America: Civil War” opens on May 7.
