Having trouble keeping track of Spider-Man's big-screen adventures? With a cinematic legacy spanning nearly 20 years, multiple directors, and numerous actors, we don't blame you. So to help out, we'll break down all the events of Tom Holland's appearances as your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, step-by-step.
Surprisingly, Peter Parker's first appearance in the MCU doesn't come in Captain America: Civil War. Instead, that honor goes to Iron Man 2, where Tony Stark saves a little kid during the climax of the film. While Tony's flying in to stop Ivan Vanko from using weaponized Hammer drones to attack the attendants at the Stark Expo, a young boy in an Iron Man mask raises his toy gauntlet to stop one of the drones. Iron Man swoops in, blasts the robot, and tells his pint-sized fan…
… before blasting off again. Fans have long speculated that the masked child was actually a young Peter Parker, years before Marvel got the go-ahead from Sony to officially add Spider-Man to the MCU. After all, the Stark Expo takes place in Queens, and Peter is a long-time science geek who wouldn't miss the opportunity to go to an event like that.
Tom Holland told The Huffington Post in 2017 that as far as he and MCU head honcho Kevin Feige are concerned, that unnamed boy is definitely Peter Parker. The actor even, quote, “triple-confirmed” it, so it's about as canonical as one can possibly be.
By the time Spider-Man: Homecoming hit theaters, audiences had seen Peter's Uncle Ben die on the big screen twice in two different franchises, so it's no wonder that the filmmakers of Spider-Man: Homecoming chose to skip over that particular part of Spider-Man's origin story. That said, there's been enough hints and references to make it clear that the MCU version of Peter definitely had an Uncle Ben that he lost at some point. In Spider-Man: Far From Home, Peter's luggage looks second-hand and bears the initials “BFP.” The luggage almost certainly belonged to one Benjamin Franklin Parker before Peter used it.
