Sony Officially Reveals Name And Release Date For ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Sequel

Three days after star Tom Holland spoiled the name of the sequel to ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ in an Instagram video, Sony has officially announced that it will be called ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’.  Not only did Holland leak this news days ago, but Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has already discussed the meaning of the title in the press!  But now, it’s official.  Sony also announced the release date, which is July 5, 2019… which was also already known.  Not sure why this announcement was even necessary.  But there it is.

We know that not only will Holland’s Peter Parker be back, somehow miraculously resurrected after the events of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, but so will his classmates Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) and Michelle “MJ” Jones (Zendaya).  News just surfaced this weekend that Sony and Marvel Studios were collaborating on another film, ‘Silk’ featuring another of Peter’s classmates, Cindy Moon played by Tiffany Espensen in ‘Homecoming’.  Presumably, this means that Cindy will also be back for ‘Far From Home’ in order to help build up her character a bit more before her solo movie.

It hasn’t yet been announced, but it’s hard to believe that some of Peter’s other fellow students like Flash Thompson (Tony Revolori) or the faculty members like Principal Morita (Kenneth Choi), Mr. Harrington (Martin Starr), Ms. Warren (Selenis Leyva) and Coach Wilson (Hannibal Buress) will be left out.

Marisa Tomei will return as Aunt May, as will Michael Keaton as the ‘Homecoming’ villain Adrian Toomes/The Vulture.  Joining Keaton will be Jake Gyllenhaal as new villain Mysterio, a.k.a. Quentin Beck.  In the comics, Mysterio is a master of movie magic, using his knowledge of stunt work, special effects and even magic and hypnotism to entrance his victims so that he can rob them.

Before ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’, Holland will return (in more ways than one) in ‘Avengers 4’ on May 3, 2019.

Jason Motes

Jason’s earliest memory is of watching ‘Batman,’ followed shortly by a memory of playing Batman & Robin with a friend, which entailed running outside in just their underwear and towels as capes. When adults told them they couldn’t run around outside in their underwear, both boys promptly whipped theirs off and ran around in just capes. Jason’s father gamely agreed to read him comic books as bedtime stories instead of ‘Snow White.’ (Super Friends being his favorite.) Jason saw all of the original Star Wars movies (and Indiana Jones and Superman and Star Trek…) in the theaters. Yes, he is old. And grew up in the most GEEKTASTIC decade ever, the 80s, devouring a steady diet of GI Joe, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power and (best of all) Jem! (It totally counts as sci fi! They had a sentient computer that projected holograms!) Jason has studied literature, journalism, film history and has a degree in creative writing (and a minor in psychology) from the University of South Alabama. He has worked as a technical writer and proofreader. These days, most of his creative energy goes into his blog and writing for this site! He lives with the cutest puppies ever.
