The Infinity Saga events were one of the most heartbreaking moments in Marvel.

Either it is Thanos’ snap who turned our beloved superheroes into dust or seeing Iron Man, Cap taking leave from Marvel Universe, all scenes were heart touching to fans.

In Avengers: Endgame, we saw Peter Parker returning to Earth after things go back to normal.

Tom Holland recalls the relationship of both Peter and Tony which went in vain after his sacrifice. He told that the final scenes were neither easy for him nor for his character, Spider-Man.

Now the 23-year-old actor is soon getting on screen again for his upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home. He said that he looks up to Downey Jr, the way his superhero character admires Stark.

Tom Holland recently had an interview where he talked about the importance of Robert Downey’s character in his life.

“RDJ (Downey Jr) means so much to me. He is such a role model for me when I was a kid and before I’d met him.

And then to get a chance to work with him and to get to know him was really a dream come true. He holds a special place in my life like Mr. Stark does in Spider-Man’s journey,”  

He added that Robert Downey Jr. inspires him to work hard and be humble.

“I love Robert. It’s kind of reassuring for a young actor like me to meet someone who’s at the top of the game. But he is pretty professional, kind and hardworking. He is just a really good guy. So for me, it was a really wonderful experience,” he added.

Far From Home, which is Holland’s second stand-alone as the Marvel superhero, is set post the events of Endgame.

The actor said the film is about Parker’s struggle to move on from Stark’s death and the responsibilities which comes with being an Avenger.

The actor said the film is about Parker’s struggle to move on from Stark’s death and the responsibilities which comes with being an Avenger.

“We had to say goodbye to him. And this film is kind of how we deal with a life without our hero, Iron Man. Parker had a very special relationship with him. The film is all about how he deals with it and how he kind of comes into his own,” he said.

Holland’s Spider-Man: Far From Home will get on screens this summer, scheduled to release on July 5. The main star cast includes Samuel L Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, and Jake Gyllenhaal.
