So, it turns out Peter Parker has been in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a while now. Since 2010 in fact.
Talking to The Huffington Post, Tom Holland apparently confirmed that the kid who stands up to a Hammer drone at the end of Iron Man 2? Young Peter.
It’s a cute moment and it makes a ton of sense. The Stark Expo was in Queens, Peter’s a huge fan of Tony’s and he’s so fundamentally decent of course he’d try to help.
It’s not quite canon. Not yet. Holland has made it clear, in a clarification to io9, that he got the okay to say it but nothing more. However, it’s such a lovely idea that we’re happy to buy into it.
