Well, he’s finally back. After several films from Sony Pictures, Peter Parker has now returned to Marvel and the studio’s brought us his first standalone movie this week in the form of Spider-Man: Homecoming. After a stunning debut in Captain America: Civil War, it’s now time for the webslinger to headline is own film and if the reviews are to be believed, he’s more than capable of doing so.
Yes, Homecoming seems to be the talk of the town, pleasing fans and critics alike and on track for some strong box office business. And with several more appearances in the MCU already booked in, there’s much to look forward to when it comes to Spidey’s adventures alongside his fellow Avengers. Speaking of which, if star Tom Holland gets his way, the iconic hero may be teaming up with some other fan favorites in future outings.
Though Iron Man took on the mentor role in Homecoming, we know that Marvel won’t be using him again in the sequel and will instead choose another one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to guide Spider-Man through the world of crime fighting, but who could it be? That remains to be seen, but earlier today, Holland noted how he’d love to have Captain America get involved and now, he’s expressed interest in a team up with the Hulk, too.
Chatting to MTV, here’s what the actor had to share:
“I really like the idea of Spider-Man and Hulk. There’s a really amazing picture from the comics where Spider-Man is sitting on a lamppost staring at Hulk, and I think that could be a really – there’s so many jokes you can make about the big green guy, so I think that would be a lot of fun.
I think it would be quite interesting to see Hulk try and squash him like a bug, like a sort of big brother-little brother type fight situation rather than a proper fight, just to see them have it off with each other, it would be really fun.”
Given that Hulk is already getting his own team up film later this year in Thor: Ragnarok, it doesn’t seem likely that Marvel would give him another one, unfortunately. However, that being said, there’s no reason that he can’t share some scenes with Spidey in Avengers: Infinity War, and given their history in the comics, it would actually surprise us if he didn’t.
What do you think, though? Should the studio throw Bruce Banner into the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming? Or will a few great moments in the aforementioned superhero extravaganza suffice? Let us know in the usual place.
