Spider-Man: Homecoming shooting is in full swing (pun intended) in New York City right now, with new set photos seemingly revealing something new about the upcoming Marvel movie everyday. The latest photos involve a lot of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man running through the streets, tailing a bad guy, and even receiving a delivery of some sort from a driver employed by the one and only Tony Stark.

Speaking of Stark, the most intriguing photo of all — a poster for the Stark World Expo — hints at what at least some of the billionaire-playboy-philanthropist-Avenger’s involvement will be in the film. If you’ll recall, the last time the Expo was held was during Iron Man 2 and given its focus on technology, the event could be an important factor in setting up some piece of technology falling into the wrong hands (Vulture anyone?).\
Could we be seeing a battle between the villain and Spidey at the Expo, possibly with an assist from Iron Man himself? This is of course all pure speculation at this point, but the fact that the Stark World Expo figures into the movie at the very least sheds a little more light on Tony Stark’s role in the film (even if it is still unclear just how big of a role that will be).
Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters July 7, 2017, which means that we should be getting a trailer in the next few months that will hopefully give us a clearer idea of the Stark World Expo’s significance.
