NOT REPLACING Iron Man | Daily News



Is ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ about Peter Parker/Spider-Man becoming the next Iron Man? Actor Tom Holland says it is not about replacing Iron Man, but stepping up as a superhero.

The trailer of the film shows how Holland as Peter Parker and Spider-Man is dealing with the death of Iron Man/Tony Stark. Many things about the trailer left fans wondering if Peter will take up that job.

In one instance, Jon Favreau as Tony’s close aide Happy Hogan is seen telling Holland’s Peter, “I don’t think Tony would have done what he did if he didn’t think you were going to be here after he was gone.”

In another shot, Peter aka Spider-Man said, “The world needs the next Iron Man”.

This was enough for fans to connect the dots, and question, “Is the movie about becoming the next Iron Man?”

“What Peter Parker realises in the film is that the world doesn’t need next Iron Man. The world needs Spider-Man to step up,” Holland said.

“It is not about filling his shoes but reaching his potential. It is an interesting arch where (first) he is thinking he needs to be more like Tony and then he realises that he needs to be more like himself. It is cool self love, kind of, moment,” he added.

The Jon Watts directorial follows the aftermath of ‘Avengers: Endgame’, which ended with the death of Iron Man, essayed by the enigmatic Robert Downey Jr. Actor Jake Gyllenhaal is entering the franchise with the role of Mysterio.
