SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Writers Reveal Scrapped Ideas For Robert Downey Jr. To Return As Iron Man

The writers of Spider-Man: Far From Home have revealed that they did consider bringing Robert Downey Jr. back as Tony Stark/Iron Man, and shed some light on what that would have entailed. Check it out...

Iron Man was, of course, killed off in Avengers: Endgame, but he makes a brief appearance in Spider-Man: Far From Home thanks to footage from Captain America: Civil War

The sequel's writers, Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, were recently asked if there were ever any discussions about bringing Robert Downey Jr. in for a day to shoot a small cameo of some sort, and while they definitely considered it, it doesn't sound like it was something they were too serious about. 

"I think if anything, it was always going to be re-used footage," McKenna says. "We had talked about possibly hearing Tony's voice through EDITH at one point, but I think a little goes a long way and we didn't want to lean too hard." Sommers went on to point out that not having Tony appear made more sense because it emphasised Peter Parker's feeling of loss. 
 
"Doing the flashback like we did with Civil War is probably the most you'd want to see and hear Tony in this movie," McKenna continues. "Like Erik says, if you are doing a movie about loss, you don't want to keep going to the well. 'He's still alive and now he's a hologram, showing you around Avengers compound.'"

As cool as it would have been for Tony to show up with one final message for the wall-crawler, having Iron Man remain dead and gone makes his demise feel all the more impactful and lasting. 

Would you have liked to see him make some sort of cameo, though?

Back in his homemade suit, Peter Parker swings away from Mysterio in the illusion he's created, and that actually means that each of the wall-crawler's MCU costumes were included in this sequel.
 


Looking like a comic book panel brought to life, Mysterio pursues the wall-crawler through a twisted version of his high school, and it's fair to say that this was a spectacular way to kick things off.
 


Multiple Mysterios pursue Spidey, and the amazing next shot in this sequence saw him trapped within the villain's helmet. As visuals go in the MCU, this was a definite standout. 
 


After punching through Mysterio's helmet, the wall-crawler plummets to the floor below, but is, of course, just in the warehouse where the villain managed to lure him to. The drones are creating the illusion.
 


Here, we see how the "B.A.R.F." technology Quentin Beck helped Tony Stark create is able to completely change the wall-crawler's surroundings and make him see things that aren't really there.
 

 

 


Here, we get a before and after look at how the entirely CG sequence was created, and it's astonishing to think that everything we saw on screen was brought to life solely with visual effects. 
 


At the top of the Eiffel Tower, Mysterio manages to convince Spider-Man that he's kidnapped MJ, but it's all part of his plan to make the web-slinger reveal who else knows about his dastardly plan.
 

 


The Multiverse sequence in Doctor Strange was pretty trippy, but this one might just have it beat. We'll have more details for you tomorrow about moments that were removed from the illusion.
 

 

 


None of us expected to see Iron Man rise from the grave so soon, right? This is a truly horrifying piece of imagery, and one Mysterio uses to really mess with the wall-crawler's head.
