When it comes to Marvel, the powers that be tend to be pretty good at keeping secrets. If something is revealed, odds are that Kevin Feige has blessed it in some way. That’s just how the Marvel Cinematic Universe operates. So, while it seems like Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, has spilled the beans on something, it’s clearly not that. Clearly, it’s a clever bit of promotion for a film still a bit off in the distance for the MCU. Anyway, we now know what the sequel to “Spider-Man: Homecoming” will be called. No longer will “Spider-Man: Homecoming 2” have to suffice as placeholders.
Yes, Holland revealed on Instagram, in a post about how he has no announcements to make, the new title. It will be called “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” That title evokes a ton of possibilities. Namely, that Peter Parker and his web slinging alter ego won’t be just swinging around New York City. Considering how Spidey just went to space (and, you know, died), it makes sense. The world is a lot bigger for Parker, so he’s no longer just a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Whether it’s another city, another country, or even another planet, at this point, the possibilities are endless.
Here’s the Instagram post making the announcement:
“Spider-Man: Far From Home” will be hitting theaters next year on July 5th. Holland again stars, while Jon Watts returns to co-write and direct. Joining the cast this time around is Jake Gyllenhaal as the villain Mysterio. We’ll have lots more on this upcoming MCU project in the months to come, so stat tuned.
