“I can confirm that that is Peter Parker“, the actor said when asked by HuffPo about the fan theory. There’s speculation that this boy may actually be a young Peter Parker. And in fact, the theory does make a certain amount of sense – and there’s plenty of evidence to support it.

“It is Peter Parker“, he says. I literally had a conversation with [MCU head honcho] Kevin Feige only 20 minutes ago.
“It is Peter Parker“, Holland said about the kid. Maybe I’ve just done a big, old spoiler, but it’s out there now. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.).
There has been some confusion, based on past interview comments from the producers of Spider-Man: Homecoming, as to whether Sony Pictures’ Spidey spin-off films Venom and Silver & Black (based on Black Cat and Silver Sable) are part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the same way as Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is.
Spider-Man: Homecoming also stars Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Donald Glover and Tyne Daly.
Sony’s Amy Pascal has confirmed that no other character from their Marvel films, including Venom, Silver Sable and Black Cat will not exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to The Independent.
A far cry from moody ball-gowns, dramatic entrances and too-serious-for-their-own-good red carpet stare-downs, the Spider-Man cast is young, fresh and not afraid to let a little loose for big events.
