Tom Holland: Far From Home is not about replacing Iron Man

Directed by Jon Watts, the film is scheduled to release in India on July 4

Published: 30th June 2019

Actor Tom Holland says that the new instalment of Spider-Man 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 says, "The world needs 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 in an interview 

"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, played by Robert Downey Jr. 

Actor Jake Gyllenhaal is entering the franchise with the role of Mysterio. Sony Pictures Entertainment India will release in India on July 4 in English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
