‘Far From Home’: The ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ sequel gets a title
Even though he wasn’t feeling so good the last time we saw him on the big screen, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker is showing some signs of improvement. While attending Seattle’s Ace Comic Con over the weekend, the actor posted a fun surprise to his Instagram account. In the player above, you can check out the title reveal for next summer’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” follow-up, officially revealed to be “Spider-Man: Far From Home.”
What could “Far From Home” mean for a webhead who the last time we saw him was fading away into ashes? It’s likely that we’ll have an explanation before “Far From Home” arrives next July, as the still untitled fourth “Avengers” film hits the big screen two months earlier on May 3, 2019. What’s more, Sony Pictures is building out a full Spider-Man cinematic multiverse that will deliver both the live-action “Venom” on October 5 and the animated “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” on December 14. Although neither is believed to connect to the MCU proper, collaboration between Disney and Sony has already delivered some true surprises.
What is known about “Spider-Man: Far From Home” is that “Homecoming” director Jon Watts is back at the helm. Although rumors have emerged online that suggest Jake Gyllenhaal will play a villain (rumored to be Mysterio), the only confirmed cast member outside of Holland is Marisa Tomei as Aunt May.
