This weekend past, Avengers: Infinity War star Tom Holland let the cat out of the bag – the next Spider-Man movie will be titled Far From Home, and it’ll build on the foundations laid by Homecoming when it arrives next summer.
Aside from Peter Parker’s trip to Europe and the fact that Jake Gyllenhaal has officially signed on to play Quentin Beck (Mysterio), plot details remain few and far between. But that won’t be the case for much longer, as Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has confirmed via Collider that Spider-Man: Far From Home will likely begin filming in the latter stages of July – if not in the next two weeks.
That’s a little earlier than expected, particularly when you consider that Marvel Studios is yet to disclose any casting announcements – you know, aside from Gyllenhaal and the long-rumored return of Michael Keaton’s Vulture. Plus, Marisa Tomei will also reprise her role as Aunt May.
From what we understand, London will serve as the creative hub for Spider-Man: Far From Home, as Peter Parker and his friends embark on a globe-trotting (but primarily European) journey. Various locations have already been earmarked by Marvel Studios, too – Berlin included – before the Spidey sequel swings back to film additional scenes in New York.
And it wouldn’t be a Spider-Man movie without one or two big-name baddies on the masthead, right? As we mentioned above, chief among them is Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio, the classic Marvel villain known for his illusions and trickery, which push Parker’s Spider-Sense into overtime. Far From Home also heralds the return of Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes, the crooked construction worker better known as the Vulture. Sinister Six, anyone?
Look for Spider-Man: Far From Home to begin filming sometime next month ahead of its arrival in July of 2019.
