Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark

Robert Downey Jr.‘s got a lot of Iron Man coming up on his to-do list, but his next new role’s got nothing to do with Marvel at all. He’ll be teaming with director Richard Linklater for an adaptation of the Reply All podcast, specifically the episode titled “Man of the People.” The fact-based tale centers on an early 20th century con man, which sounds like a perfect fit for both Downey and Linklater.

Tony Stark's Secret Message to Spider-Man

Despite how long Marvel Studios tapdanced around the prospect of Spider-Man appearing in Captain America: Civil War, we were certain the webslinger was going to show up in the movie. However, one thing we didn’t know about until around the time the movie hit theaters was that the post-credits scene for the movie featured a tease for Spider-Man: Homecoming. And that scene almost featured a more overt tease for what’s to come in the Spidey franchise reboot.

Some concept art from the visual effects company Perception, who created the digital readout projected by Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) webshooters that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) gave him, reveals that there was almost a secret message that the genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist left for the webslinger.
