After plenty of speculation, the upcoming sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming has been given an official title.
It was left to ol’ Web-head himself to break the news, with star Tom Holland taking to his Instagram page to reveal the title:
So, Spider-Man: Far From Home it is!
Given how the follow-up is said to take place in Europe, the Far From Home subtitle is certainly a good fit.
Of course, things didn’t go all that well for Spidey by the time that Avengers: Infinity War came to a close, so it remains to be seen just how the famed Wall-crawler will swing back in to action. Expect that to all be explained when the Infinity War follow-up hits the silver screen next May.
For Spider-Man: Far From Home, what we know so far is that Jake Gyllenhaal has recently signed on to play the nefarious Mysterio. On the villain front, Michael Keaton will be back as Adrian Toomes, too, and it could well be that Michael Mando may reprise his Mac Gargan role. Mando had a small supporting role in Homecoming, and comic book fans will be well aware that Gargan is better known as the villainous Scorpion. With Far From Home potentially featuring Mysterio, Vulture, and Scorpion, many are predicting that we could see the early foundations being laid for the Sinister Six team; a team of six supervillains who come together to finally wipe out Spider-Man once and for all.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will see Homecoming’s Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers penning the screenplay, with Homecoming director Jon Watts another returning.
At this point, Spider-Man: Far From Home is set for a July 2019 release.
