While he might play the heroic Spider-Man on the big screen, Tom Holland has also become somewhat known for sometimes spoiling (whether accidentally or possibly on purpose) some things connected to the Marvel films. He took it up a notch over the weekend as the actor dropped a pretty big spoiler about the upcoming web-swinger sequel film.
In an Instagram video taken during Seattle’s Ace Comic Con, Holland revealed that the title for the next Spider-Man film will be Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Many were left wondering if he was telling the truth or just playing with fans, but now Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has come out to confirm that the title is indeed the true one.
Talking with CinemaBlend, Feige said: “[It’s] similar [to Spider-Man: Homecoming]. I won’t say what the meanings are, but we enjoy that title because, like Homecoming, it is full of alternate meaning. And we liked continuing the ‘Home’ thing, with the little Spidey symbol in the ‘Home.'”
As mentioned, the Homecoming title not only referred to the high school setting and the dance that was held in the film but also to the fact that with the film Spider-Man was coming home to the Marvel Universe following the deal with Sony Pictures to produce the films together and place Spider-Man/Peter Parker into the Marvel Cinematic Universe at last.
This new title also seems to support the rumors that the sequel will find Peter/Spidey traveling from New York to Europe, thus actually making him physically far from home. There is also the matter of this film reportedly taking place just moments after the climax of the upcoming Avengers 4, and all the events of that film and Avengers: Infinity War will likely change Peter a great deal and he could be mentally and emotionally far from home as well as he tries to find himself and his place in the world again.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far From Home arrives on July 5, 2019.
