Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: Far From Home Stunt Video Fuels Hydro-Man Rumors


It’s looking increasingly likely that Marvel is rounding up a who’s who of incredible villains for Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Up first was the casting of Jake Gyllenhaal as Quentin Beck (AKA Mysterio), which came hand-in-hand with the news that Michael Keaton’s Vulture will be returning for the 2019 sequel. And that’s not all.

Not only has Numan Acar been tipped to play the Chameleon, but we’ve since learned that Far From Home may feature yet another Spidey staple – Hydro-Man. Take this one with a pinch of salt for now, as the only real evidence can be traced back to a YouTube video. That said, the latest Instagram post from Tom Holland certainly presents some food for thought, as it shows what can only be Holland’s stunt double being blasted out of shot by a powerful water cannon.

Hydro-Man, is that you?

The Avengers: Infinity War star is taking a moment between takes here to promote The Brothers Trust, an organization run by the Holland family that helps cast light on those smaller charities in need of attention. They’re running a competition of sorts that will allow one lucky Marvel fan to hang out with Tom Holland on set, where you’ll presumably be able to see him do all his own stunts…yeah, about that.

In all seriousness, Holland really is a believer in performing every stunt himself (not unlike Tom Cruise before him), this set video is merely a way for him to deliver a fun-filled message to his legions of followers. And while it’s by no means official, the use of a giant water cannon will certainly lend credence to those Hydro-Man rumors. Has Tom Holland accidentally revealed a spoiler once again?

All will be revealed when Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into theaters on July 5th.
