Holland, who plays the web-slinging hero in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming', confirmed a long-standing fan theory about the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Spider-Man star Tom Holland has delighted fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe by confirming that his character has been linked with the franchise since 2010, giving credence to a long-standing fan theory.
The rumour generated from a moment in the 2010 superhero film Iron Man 2, where a small boy dressed up as Iron Man is rescued from imminent death from a killer drone by the real Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr. Following that moment, some MCU fans had speculated that the boy in question is a very young Peter Parker, who later of course becomes Spidey.
Now, however, the new Spider-Man actor Tom Holland has confirmed that fan theory is actually true to The Huffington Post.

It is the year 1209 anno domini, and Ireland is merely a green, mountainous mass of land fraught with bloody religious war. An ancient brotherhood of monks are in possession of a potentially dangerous holy relic with the power to summon the wrath of God and unleash it on his enemies. It is their mission to transport this artefact to its rightful home in Rome, but that means crossing the treacherous roads to the East coast where they are always in danger of brutal death at the hands of tribal rivals and Norman invaders. One of those young monks making this perilous pilgrimage is a novice named Brother Diarmuid (Tom Holland) who is aided by a mute lay-brother (Jon Bernthal).
As much as their faith drives them to continue on the journey of their lives, it is that same set of beliefs which could destroy them all in the end - especially with all the dark superstition surrounding their cargo - and even drive a deadly wedge between all of the brothers. For there are secrets about this object that holds more power than any of them could ever possible imagine.
'Pilgrimage' is a gritty historic thriller which also stars 'The Hobbit' actor Richard Armitage as Raymond De Merville. Directed by Brendan Muldowney ('Love Eternal', 'Savage') and written by Jamie Hannigan in his feature film screenplay debut, the movie made its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2017 as part of the event's 'Viewpoints' segment.

Already introduced to those who have seen 'Captain America: Civil War', this version of Peter Parker is much younger than those we've seen in the past, and is lucky enough to be allowed mentoring from the plucky Tony Stark, aka Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).

The film will come straight from Sony Pictures.
Though Marvel Studios currently have the right to bring the 'Spider-Man' property to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there has been what we imagine is a hugely complicated agreement with Sony Pictures to allow the latter company to bring a film based on the Spidey villain Venom to the big screen. Now, with confirmation that Tom Hardy will be the actor stepping into that role and a release date set for October 5, 2018, rumours and information regarding the flick are now beginning to creep into the spotlight.
Tom Holland is looking forward to Sony Pictures release 'Venom'
We know for sure that Scott Rosenburg is writing the screenplay for the movie alongside Jeff Pinkner, and Marvel villain Carnage is looking set to take centre-stage as the primary antagonist. Aside from that and the previously-mentioned casting however, much is yet to be revealed; not surprising when the film's release is still over 12 months away.

The film has been the basis of much speculation ever since it was announced, with a variety of different actors on various fans wishlists.

Tom Holland explains the importance of Peter Parker in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'.
Children everywhere might love Marvel and all its superheroes, but the movie franchise is hardly aimed at a younger audience. This is where 'SPIDER-MAN: Homecoming' comes in; bringing back Peter Parker may just be the most teen-friendly thing Marvel have done for a while.

20-year-old Tom Holland plays the high school hero in the forthcoming reboot, and he thinks it's about time a more relatable comic book character hit our screens after the likes of the super-rich Iron Man, the super-soldier Captain America and the super-god Thor.

Based on a true story, it's the historical aspect of these events that holds the attention, even though the filmmakers kind of let the drama slip through their fingers. It's an impressively designed film, with vivid characters and some rather amazing situations. But the script's structure is too fragmented to build the story's momentum.
It opens in 1906 London, where Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) is assigned to accompany a geographical expedition to the jungles on the border of Bolivia and Brazil. While there accompanied by the intrepid Costin (Robert Pattinson), he discovers signs of a massive ancient city, which he names Z, the ultimate human achievement. Back in England, he reacquaints himself with his fiercely independent wife Nina (Sienna Miller) and plans a return trip with Costin and wealthy benefactor Murray (Angus Macfadyen) to find this lost pre-European civilisation. But Murray causes so many problems that they return empty-handed. The outbreak of the Great War delays Percy from going back to South America, so he heads off to the front to fight. Later, he organises a final expedition to find Z, accompanied by his now-adult son Jack (Tom Holland).
The screenplay has simplified Percy's attempts to find Z (he actually travelled to Brazil around 10 times). But the three trips depicted here begin to feel oddly repetitive, broken up by scenes of impatient domesticity in Britain. All of these sequences are sharply well shot and played, but the overall impact is lessened by all of the travelling back and forth. And many of the long sequences back in Europe feel like asides to the main story of Percy's all-consuming obsession with finding this ancient city, which we now know exists. Hunnam is terrific in the role, with his cut-glass accent and stiff upper lip even in the face of impending doom. He's likeable and passionate, and his scenes with the superb Miller sparkle. Patterson and Macfadyen add some texture as loyal and obnoxious colleagues, respectively. And Holland's quiet charisma very nearly steals the show.

Colonel Percy Fawcett is an ambitious British explorer who, come 1925, plans to take a long trip into the Amazon rainforest to uncover an ancient lost civilisation that he names 'Z'. He expects to find ruins and treasure, possibly even remnants from the legendary El Dorado, but it seems an impossible task to get the backing of the respected scientists of the day who can't possibly conceive that a civilisation perhaps more advanced than our own could exist amongst the native tribes they perceive as savages. His wife seems to be the only one who supports his mission, as well as his son Jack and another friend who agree to accompany him on the voyage. Unfortunately, this will be the trio's last trip, as they are subsequently never seen in England again.
Peter Parker is a teenager who has a lot to deal with after being bitten by a radioactive spider. He suddenly finds himself equipped with the ability to climb buildings and spin webs - powers that he knows he wants to use for good but of which he really doesn't know where to start. He's being mentored by Tony Stark, who suggests he keep to small-time crime rather than taking on the city's supervillains, but he's ready to take on the big guys and he's certainly tired of being patronised by Iron Man who doesn't think he's ready to become an Avenger especially when he's still got high school to complete. When a new menace in the shape of the Vulture makes himself known in New York, the newly dubbed Spider-Man wants to help take him down, but how can he do that with the Avengers trying to keep him out of the loop?
