Could Another Avenger be Joining Iron Man on Spider-Man: Homecoming
It's a well known fact that Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man will be continuing to mentor young Peter Parker on Spider-Man: Homecoming, but could it be that the Queens web slinger is going to get help from more than one of his future Avengers team-mates?

Spider-Man: Homecoming is currently shooting down in Atlanta, thankfully getting enough days of production under their belt to give us some hilarious early footage at SDCC last month. As can be the case with these big productions, local fans tend to snoop around in the hope of scoring a spoiler-y photo or an autograph of their favorite stars. The Twitter account @AtlantaFilming takes things to the next level, dedicating a great deal of time to the many TV and movie projects that use the city as their production base. Over the weekend, the twitter account set tongues wagging with this tweet:



Scarlett Johansson visiting the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming isn't a confirmation of her appearance on the movie, not by a long shot. However, a Black Widow cameo in the movie does make sense. As Peter gets to grips with his powers, he'll likely be getting some help on the tech front from Mr. Stark, but he'll also need some help with combat training, too. And, who better to help him train in hand-to-hand combat than Black Widow?

But, before we get too carried away with this rumor, it's important to note that it's not exactly a rarity for members of other franchise movies to visit the set of the latest production. We've seen it happen with actors from The Force Awakens popping in for a visit to the set of Rogue One, and it's certainly happened before in the MCU. This could be a simple case of Scarlett Johansson just passing through the neighborhood, but we really, really hope it's something more substantial.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is released in theaters on July 7th 2017
