Fans have long speculated that the young fan of the armored hero who holds up a hand to fight the Hammer drones in the movie was Peter Parker, and that is officially the case. Tom Holland, who plays the role of Peter in the MCU recently told the Huffington Post that the fan theory is actually correct.
“It is Peter Parker,” Holland said about the kid. “I can confirm that, that is Peter Parker. I can confirm that as of today. I literally had a conversation with Kevin Feige only 20 minutes ago. Maybe I’ve just done a big, old spoiler, but it’s out there now. It’s cool. I like the idea that Peter Parker has been in the universe since the beginning.”
Holland stars in Spider-Man: Homecoming alongside Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Donald Glover and Tyne Daly. The film is in theaters now.
