It has been confirmed that Robert Downey, Jr.’s Tony Stark/Iron Man will be making an appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming. But the reason for his appearance is likely going to involve the longtime running Stark Expo.
Fans have seen this coming from a mile away, given how Tony and Peter interacted in Captain America: Civil War. As the scenes in Atlanta have been completed, the whole production moved to film the last few weeks in New York and in Peter Parker’s actual hometown of Queens. More and more set photos are surfacing, taken by fans and bystanders who got to see what was going on.
A photo taken from what would be the set suggests that Mr. Stark will be coming to New York for Stark Expo. The dates on the poster suggest that the event would be held from Oct. 17-27, 2017.
As told by Cinema Blend, the very first Stark Expo was held in 1943 and hosted by Tony’s father, Howard Stark in Captain America: The First Avenger. Howard’s last Expo was back in 1974 and Tony went on to host it as seen in Iron Man 2. Even though the last one was not as successful, it seems like a good time for a relaunch.
So far, nothing has been confirmed whether Stark Expo would really be happening the whole time. It is possible however, that Tony Stark might be in Queens for another reason as well. There have been rumors about Spider-Man butting heads with another villain called The Tinkerer, who is a former employee of Stark Industries. But what is known is that he will be meeting Peter again.
Spider-Man: Homecoming also stars Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Bokeem Woodbine and Marisa Tomei. Jon Favreau will also be making a cameo appearance, reprising his role as Happy Hogan.
Spider-Man: Homecoming premieres on July 7, 2017.
