It’s official: Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. will reprise his role as Tony Stark for Marvel Studios and Sony’s joint Spider-Man film. According to Heat Vision Blog, Downey has just closed a deal to appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

It is unclear at this time if Downey’s deal is just for Homecoming or includes multiple other Marvel Cinematic Universe installments. Prior to Homecoming, the star was signed to Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2.

The new Spider-Man film will star Tom Holland in the title role, following the character’s introduction in Marvel Studios’ Captain America: Civil War, which opens on May 6. It’s the latest take on the iconic Marvel Comics character which has seen two previous incarnations at Sony, first played by Tobey Maguire and then by Andrew Garfield.

According to the report, Civil War establishes a relationship between Holland’s Spider-Man and Tony Stark, which will then lead into Homecoming..

In February 2015, Sony and Marvel announced a deal to share live-action rights to the character, which were previously solely under Sony’s control. Jon Watts is set to direct the movie, with a screenplay by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is scheduled to swing back into theaters in his own feature film on July 7, 2017.
