Spider-Man: Far From Home released earlier this month. The Marvel movie featured the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame. It chronicled the journey of Peter Parker after the death of his mentor, Iron Man aka Tony Stark. There is a slew of Tony Stark references in the movie. While we missed Robert Downey Jr in the new MCU, the makers almost included the actor in Spider-Man: Far From Home. In a new interview, Far From Home writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers revealed the makers' original plan. 

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, the writers were asked if Robert Downey Jr was considered to be roped in to reprise his role for a flashback scene. The makers revealed that there were talks about Tony's voice being used as artificial intelligence via EDITH. However, it was eventually dropped. 

"I think if anything, it was always going to be re-used footage. We had talked about possibly hearing Tony's voice through EDITH at one point, but I think a little goes a long way and we didn't want to lean too hard," Mckenna told THR. "He is so beloved and we definitely talked about so many things, but at some point it's about the absence of a person and about the loss of that person. If you show that person and that person has such a presence, does it fight trying to portray the loss?" Sommers added. 

"Doing the flashback like we did with Civil War is probably the most you'd want to see and hear Tony in this movie. Like Erik says, if you are doing a movie about loss, you don't want to keep going to the well. "He's still alive and now he's a hologram, showing you around Avengers compound,"" Mckenna added. While it would have distorted the purpose of the movie, it would have been such a heartwarming moment to see Robert Downey Jr in the Spider-Man movie.
