With Spider-Man: Homecoming fast approaching, Collider caught up with star, Tom Holland, and he explained the interesting dynamic between his character Peter Parker and Robert Downey Jr.’s, Tony Stark.
During the interview, Holland gave his thoughts on the role that Tony plays in Peter’s life:
“I think we’re seeing the beginning of a sort of father-son relationship. Obviously Tony hasn’t got any kids, and Peter at this point hasn’t got any male figures in his life, so I think there’s a really lovely dynamic that Robert and I are forming. And, no, let me take that back. I think Robert is more like a big brother than he is a father figure because he picks on him and he is down on him quite a lot. But then there is that level of him caring about him like his own, and Robert has really brought something lovely to the character. It’s a very different side of Stark than you’ve ever seen before.”
Holland also revealed that the relationship between Peter and Aunt may is one of his favourites. Of his on-screen aunt, he said:
“I think the relationship between Peter and May is one of my favorites throughout the movie because—oh gosh I’m going to give so much away, I can’t do that— um, she’s much younger and she’s full of life. There’s a moment where she drops Peter off to a party, and she’s also going off to a party herself, and they have this sort of friendship between the two of them. And there’s this beautiful scene where something happens and Peter basically breaks down with May, and then she sort of becomes his mother, and that’s a really nice turning point for Marisa [Tomei] in the movie.”
