He’s done it again!
In a perfect mirror to his excitable character, Tom Holland has built himself a reputation for being a leaky faucet of Marvel spoilers. With Avengers: Infinity War, the production team even decided to keep the script away from him as much as possible to prevent him from leaking info. Because he’s Spider-Man and he can do anything he wants, though, Holland has once again revealed something pretty big. But this time, it seems to have been on purpose.
Taking to Instagram earlier this evening, the actor shared a video apologizing to fans for not having any substantial updates on Spider-Man: Homecoming 2. However, in the process, he actually gave us something pretty massive: the film’s title.
In the clip below, you’ll see Holland showing off the script for the sequel, the front of which reads Spider-Man: Far From Home. Granted, Marvel hasn’t confirmed that this is the title yet, but it’s pretty clear that the fan favorite actor’s letting it slip intentionally (or at least, we hope it was intentional – for his sake) and it’s safe to say that this is what the pic is being called.
After all, Far From Home would certainly align nicely with what we’ve heard about the sequel being a globetrotting affair. Just the other month, in fact, producer Kevin Feige confirmed as much, saying:
“We start filming early July. We film in London. We shot first film in Atlanta. And we shoot a lot of films in London but there’s another reason we’re shooting in London which is, yes, Spidey, of course, will spend some time in New York, but he’ll spend some time in other parts of the globe.
The way Civil War and the fact that he went to Leipzig Airport and then has to go back to school, informed Homecoming, the two Avengers films that precede [the sequel] will greatly inform, probably even more so, the next movie.”
Fresh from his battle with the Mad Titan, look for Tom Holland’s Avenger to butt heads with Vulture and Mysterio when Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 – or should that be Spider-Man: Far From Home? – swings into theaters on July 5th, 2019. Next up for Marvel Studios though is the launch of another MCU sequel: Ant-Man and the Wasp.
