Ifyou are a superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then there is one thing you want: an Avengers membership. The franchise centersaround the Avengers as they continue to assemble and fall apart. Spider-Man is a candidate wanting to join this team, but Tom Holland thinks Iron Man does not want to recruit the vigilante.
Spider-Man star opened up about why he feels Iron Man is against Spider-Man joining the Avengers. Holland in an interview with Collider told the site the conflict boils down to fear.
“It’s interesting more so from the point of Tony Stark because he sort of has the responsibility of someone else other than himself. He really has to think about keeping Peter Parker safe, and he does that by telling him to be the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man rather than this world-saving Spider-Man. He says help the old lady across the street, help get the cat out of the tree, but Spider-Man wants more.”
Holland admits that Spider-Man “wants to be an Avenger, and I think the reason Tony doesn’t want him to be an Avenger is that he doesn’t want anything bad to happen to him.”
Fans have gotten a taste of how protective Iron Man is his protege. Tony Stark was seen flexing his helicopter skills on Peter after he managed to take down Giant-Man in Captain America: Civil War. Spider-Man has a plan to take down Scott Lang after the convict bulks up, but the attack leaves the teenager winded. When Iron Man rushes to check on Spider-Man, he panics, and Tony tells him to stay down. When Peter complains, Iron Man threatens to tell on him to Aunt May, and the warning manages to shut up Spider-Man’s complaints.
Robert Downey Jr. explained how he views his budding mentorship of Spider-Man in MCU.
“Tony’s kind of keeping a real close eye on him and making sure that he is a worthy recruit for the Avengers,” Downey Jr. explained in a recent Spider-Man: Homecoming featurette. He’s bright and gifted. And a very talented guy.”
Spider-Man will be tasked with helping Avengers shortly. Holland is confirmed to reprise Peter Parker in Avengers: Infinity War. When Mad Titan shows up, fans bet Tony will try to keep Peter far from the tyrant.

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
