Spider-Man: Homecoming Sequel Title Revealed By Tom Holland
If you don’t love Tom Holland, you probably don’t have a heart. He’s handsome, talented, and immensely kind (just look at the pictures of him in costume visiting sick kids in hospital), and like the rest of us, he’s only human, so he occasionally makes mistakes. Such as how he just accidentally revealed the title for the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel.
Whileat the ACE Comic-Con in Seattle, Holland uploaded a video to Instagram in which he apologized to fans for the lack of news about the upcoming sequel, before he briefly assured us that he had recently been handed the script for the film, which he briefly showed on his iPad. If you looked carefully, you could see that the screen showed a title reading Spider-Man: Far From Home, in a similar font and design style to the logo for the original Spider-Man: Homecoming. In all honesty, it seems like Holland was probably in on the joke this time, but either way, this was still a pretty funny way to announce the title.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will see Holland returning at the titular wall-crawling superhero, who will have to battle special effects artist turned supervillan Mysterio, who is expected to be played by Jake Gyllenhaal. Michael Keaton will also be returning as the Vulture, whilst Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, and Jacob Batalon have also been confirmed to reprise their roles from the first film. As the title suggests, Far From Home will mostly be set in Europe as opposed to New York City, with filming set to begin in London next month. Director Jon Watts will once again be calling the shots, and the film will swing into screens on 5 July 2019.
On a practical note, if you’ve seen Avengers: Infinity War (and everyone has, as it’s grossed over $2 billion), you’ll know that it will be kind of difficult for there to be any more stories featuring the MCU version of Spider-Man, because, you know, he was turned into a pile of ash. We’ll probably have to wait until Avengers 4 next year to learn how Spider-Man will escape from his particularly messy situation.
