Actor Tom Holland has just reassured many Spider-Man fans who saw Avengers: Infinity War that their favorite hero will return.
'Spider-Man: Far From Home'
Holland, who has become notorious for dropping crucial information about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, revealed the title of Spider-Man's next solo chapter. The actor, who was at Seattle's Ace Comic-Con this past weekend, brought out a white iPad in a quick 30-second video. It turned out that the iPad had the logo of the Spider-Man: Homecoming's sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Holland was confused on how the story would spin off following the events of Avengers: Infinity War. Fans who saw the film know that Holland's Spider-Man died in Iron Man's (Robert Downey, Jr.) arms when Thanos (Josh Brolin) harness the power of the Infinity Gauntlet. However, he stated that he was "super excited" to read the script.
What We Know About 'Far From Home'
Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts is directing the second solo chapter. Several media outlets reported that the sequel could pick up following the immediate aftermath of Avengers 4. Writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers have written Spider-Man: Far from Home's screenplay. Meanwhile, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed in an interview with ComicBook.com that the sequel's title might have multiple interpretations.
"We like [the title] of course because it ties into Homecoming, not just keeping that word going, which we like and we liked it more than Homecoming 2, but that notion of 'home' is a word that has dual meanings we'd like to continue with this [Marvel Cinematic Universe] version of Spider-Man. So, Far From Home has multiple meanings," said Feige.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will also mark Jake Gyllenhaal's debut to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is heavily rumored that he could play Mysterio. Meanwhile, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, and Marisa Tomei will also reprise their respective roles as Vulture, Michelle "MJ" Jones, and Aunt May for the second film. Spider-Man: Far From Home opens in theatres on July 5, 2019.
