More About The Easter Egg


We already know that Tony Stark has been a mentor to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. And this is true ever since Spidey’s introduction in Captain America: Civil War. There are some Spider-Man fans who feel that Stark has replaced Uncle Ben in the MCU. In fact, even Tom Holland says so, when considering his recent interviews.

Along with this, we know about Peter Parker’s struggles with Tony’s demise. In Spider-Man: Far From Home, Parker struggles to come to terms with Stark’s death in Avengers: Endgame. Moreover, we can see small references to Uncle Ben in both Captain America: Civil War as well as Spider-Man: Homecoming. However, we are still to see Uncle Ben’s name being mentioned in the MCU. The closest we have come to mention is evident in Spider-Man: Far From Home. It is in this movie that we see Peter’s briefcase bearing Uncle Ben’s initials.

Uncle Ben and Aunt May Civil War:

Regardless of everything, this fan from the Marvel Studios subreddit has noticed something quite surprising. Marisa Tomei’s Aunt May in the Civil War might be wearing Uncle Ben’s wedding ring. Kudos to the fan for pointing out such details. In both the comics and movies, Aunt May and Uncle Ben take care of their nephew Peter Parker. This is after both his parents die in a plane crash.
