Sony officially names new Spidey film: ‘Spider-Man Far from Home,’ set for next summer

Sony Pictures has officially given a title to its new Spider-Man movie, the follow-up to 2017’s successful franchise reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming, titling the sequel Spider-Man: Far from Home, which will hit theaters July 5, 2019.

Star Tom Holland pretty much leaked the new title in an Instagram post last week from Seattle’s Ace Comic-Con, sharing a pic of the movie script with the name on the cover.

“We film in London. We shot first film in Atlanta. And we shoot a lot of films in London but there’s another reason we’re shooting in London which is, yes, Spidey, of course, will spend some time in New York, but he’ll spend some time in other parts of the globe,” Marvel Exec Kevin Feige said of the project back in May about the production.

The new film returns Holland, also a fixture in Marvel’s Avengers films, director Jon Watts and the rest of the original cast. Jake Gyllenhaal has been rumored to play the villainous Mysterio, but little is known about the plot.

Spider-Man Homecoming grossed $334.2 million domestically and $880.1 million worldwide in 2017.

Zendaya, Marisa Tomei and Jacob Batalon are all certain to be back with a whole gallery of characters possible as well: Donald Glover as Aaron Davis, the uncle of Miles Morales (the new Spidey in the comic books); Bokeem Woodbine and Logan Marshall-Green, who respectively played Herman Schultz and Jackson Brice, both incarnations of Shocker; and of course, a cameo by Michael Keaton.

Spider-Man: Homecoming opens July 5, 2019.
