Sony Pictures has confirmed what Marvel tried to keep under wraps and what Tom Holland leaked to the public — the next Spider-Man film will be called Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Holland, who plays Spider-Man/Peter Parker in the MCU universe, accidentally leaked the film’s title during an Instagram video which showed the film’s title on Holland’s iPad. Holland, like his MCU co-star Mark Ruffalo, is a serial leaker. But I don’t know how much of an accident this particular leak is since he was talking about getting the next Spider-Man script. That, plus Holland’s message below the video–“Sorry for no announcements”–seems like a tease of a tease.
Anyways, tin-foil hat deducing aside, it seems a little taxing to force actors to keep all these secrets anyway, especially since everyone is ready to get the ball rolling on Avengers 4 news. By now, everyone who has seen the film knows those who didn’t make it to the end of the film will somehow come back–the next Spider-Man film is proof of that–so one would think the time for secrecy surrounding Avengers events would be over.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is set to star Holland alongside Zendaya, who plays Michelle Jones aka MJ, Parker’s zany friend from school and future love interest. Also starring in the film are Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei and Michael Keaton, who played Vulture, the villain from the first film. Jake Gyllenhaal is rumored to star in the film as the new villain on the scene, Mysterio.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will be in theaters July 5, 2019.
