Everybody sing it: Iron Man, Iron Man, does whatever an iron can. Yes, according to Hollywood Reporter Robert Downey Jr will be reprising his iconic role as Tony Stark aka Iron Man in the latest Spider-Man reboot, "Homecoming".

Back in March Marvel revealed that Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland, would be appearing in "Captain America: Civil War". The trailer, which had the webslinger snatching Cap's shield, prompted a lot of debate about how eyes work, but look, it was pretty cool if we're being honest.

Now sources are telling Hollywood Reporter that Downey Jr has closed a deal that will see Iron Man appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming as well. For anyone counting at home, this is the sixth Spider-Man movie and second franchise reboot in 14 years and the eighth film in which Downey Jr has played Iron Man.
