Spider-Man: Homecoming is finally here, and with it, we get a proper introduction of the wall-crawler into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Helping him get used to the water -- as you probably already know from certain unsubtle advertising -- is Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man. Tony Stark is serving as a mentor figure in Homecoming but he probably won't be around to help in the sequel. A recent report claims that Marvel wants a different MCU character to fill that role, and though the sequel (and plenty more Marvel movies) are still years away, we've got some ideas.

Spider-Man is no stranger to the team-up in comics, having partnered up with pretty much every hero under the sun. There are no shortage of characters in the MCU, but not all of them make sense popping up in Spider-Man: Homecoming 2. Whoever does eventually get the honor will likely be determined by who has the best chemistry with Spidey after Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, but for now, these seem like the most promising and interesting candidates.

Ant-Man and Spider-Man already crossed paths in Captain America: Civil War on opposite sides of the battlefield, but man, was it memorable. Spider-Man battling Giant-Man was one of the absolute highlights of the movie, and it would be really fun to see that dynamic explored more in the Homecoming sequel. Maybe Spider-Man needs just a little help pulling off a heist and turns to Scott Lang for assistance. If he's Tom Holland's top pick, then who are we to say no?
