During Robert Downey Jr.’s appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night, which also saw the rest of #TeamIronMan take the stage, the Iron Man actor opened up about Spider-Man’s role in “Captain America: Civil War” — and alluded to his possible involvement in 2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”
When asked if he would appear in the next solo Spidey film, Downey didn’t shoot down the idea. “Perhaps I will, we don’t have a contract yet,” said Downey Jr. Tony Stark’s involvement in a Spider-Man film doesn’t seem so farfetched. Character bios for “Civil War” revealed that it’s Iron Man himself that personally recruits Spider-Man into the battle.
RDJ also spoke about his personal affection for the character. “You and I both grew up [with Spider-Man]. To me, Spider-Man, that was my whole deal…He was funny, he was cool, he was young like us.” He praised Tom Holland, calling his portrayal of Spider-Man “fantastic.”
Kimmel also revealed that Tony Stark has a scene with Marisa Tomei’s Aunt May. Tomei is so far the youngest actor to portray Aunt May in live action, a fact that both Kimmel and Downey discussed. “She seemed ancient before and now she’s Marisa Tomei and he’s got a hot aunt,” said Downey Jr. “My god, just think of the possibilities.”
