Tom Holland revealed the title for Spider-Man: Homecoming’s sequelJune 24, 2018
The sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming is just over a year out from hitting theaters, but its star Tom Holland seems to have revealed the title in an Instagram post: Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Holland is at Ace Comic-Con in Seattle this weekend, appearing alongside other Marvel actors Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Mackie, and Elizabeth Olsen. While there, he posted a video to Instagram, and said that while there wasn’t any announcements for the upcoming sequel, he did just get the script, and held it up on an iPad, revealing the title.
Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War ahead.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is an apt title. Back in April, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told io9 that would filming will begin in July in London, and that the reason they were shooting in England was that while Peter Parker/Spider-Man will be in New York City for part of the film, “he’ll spend some time in other parts of the globe.” Not much else is known about the film at this stage, although actor Jake Gyllenhaal is reportedly in talks for the role of supervillain Mysterio.
Obviously, with sequels to Guardians of the Galaxy and Black Panther reportedly in the works, Thanos’ master plan to depopulate the universe won’t be permanent, so it remains to be seen just how Peter Parker will return to the world of the living after the end of Avengers: Infinity War. We’ll find out next year, when the film hits theaters on July 5th.
