A photo of Peter and Tony together again is causing Marvel fans’ tear ducts to start tingling.
The set of silly selfies mostly consist of Holland, 23, and Downey, 54, making faces at the camera.
The Instagram slideshow concludes with a photo of Downey holding a Spider-Man action figure while Holland holds an Iron Man one.
“We did it Mr Stark!” Holland wrote as the caption, which is a nod to their characters’ relationship in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The post pulls on the heartstrings, given how distraught Holland’s Peter Parker was to lose his mentor Tony Stark (Downey) in “Avengers: Endgame.”
Holland also posted the photos just days after reports surfaced that Sony Pictures and Disney-owned Marvel Studios were unable to agree on terms that would allow Spider-Man to continue appearing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — an upsetting turn given that much of the plot of “Spider-Man: Far From Home” focuses on a reluctant Peter agreeing to step into Tony’s shoes. Tony Stark was also a key player in the Avenger movies.
Fans are flooding Holland’s post with emotionally-driven responses, and fellow MCU star Mark Ruffalo simply responded with three sad-face emojis. Many fans rejoiced in seeing the duo together again, while others pleaded to keep Spider-Man in the MCU.
Although Holland hasn’t made any official statements about the Sony/Disney drama — and a new deal is rumored to be in talks — fans had plenty to say online. To see how some are reacting to the news, just scroll down.
