Spider-Man: Far From Home is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man, produced by Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios, and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing. It is intended to be the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and the twenty-third film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film is directed by Jon Watts, and written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers. It stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, alongside Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jake Gyllenhaal, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson. The film depicts Parker and his friends as they go on summer vacation to Europe.

By October 2016, discussions had begun for a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, with a release date given to the film in December 2016. Holland was confirmed to return as the title character in July 2017, Watts was confirmed to return to direct in December 2017, and Gyllenhaal joined the cast as Mysterio in June 2018. Holland revealed the film's title ahead of filming, which began in July 2018, taking place in England and the Czech Republic. Filming is expected to last until December 2018.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is scheduled to be released on July 5, 2019 in the United States.

Premise

After the events of the untitled Avengers film,[1][2] Peter Parker and his friends go on summer vacation to Europe.[3]

Cast

Additionally, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, and Hemky Madera reprise their roles as Parker's best friend Ned, Parker's rival Eugene "Flash" Thompson, and Mr. Delmar, the owner of a local bodega, respectively.[9][10][11] Numan Acar has been cast as Dimitri,[12] while J. B. Smoove,[13] Oli Hill,[10] and Remy Hii have been cast in undisclosed roles.[14]

Production

Development

In June 2016, Sony Pictures chairman Thomas Rothman stated that Sony and Marvel Studios were committed to making future Spider-Man films after Spider-Man: Homecoming.[15] The following month, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said if additional films were made, the company had an early idea to follow the model of the Harry Potter film series, and have the plot of each film cover a new school year,[16] with a second film intended to take place during Peter Parker's junior year of high school.[17] By October 2016, discussions had begun for a second film, including which villain would be featured, according to Spider-Man actor Tom Holland, who was signed for three Spider-Man films including Homecoming.[18][19] In December, after the successful release of the first Homecoming trailer, Sony slated a sequel to the film for July 5, 2019.[20]

It was revealed in June 2017 that Sony will have use of another Marvel Studios-controlled character for the film, as it did with Iron Man for Homecoming.[21] Feige stated that Marvel and Sony were "just starting to solidify our plans" for the film, and felt Spider-Man's appearances in Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled Avengers film would "launch him off into a very new cinematic universe at that point", similar to how Captain America: Civil War "informed everything in Homecoming".[1] Marvel and Sony were both keen on having Homecoming director Jon Watts return for the sequel, with Feige saying "that’s the intention for sure" and Pascal noting they "would be crazy [not to]" have Watts return. Watts also noted he was signed for two films.[22] Additionally, Feige mentioned the film would be titled in a similar fashion to Homecoming, using a subtitle, and would not feature "2" in the title. He also stated that filming was expected to begin in April or May 2018.[23] Pascal noted that the film would begin "a few minutes" after the conclusion of the untitled Avengers sequel.[2] As with Homecoming, Feige stated the film's villain would be one that had not yet been seen in film.[24] By July 2017, Watts was in negotiations with the studios to return for the sequel,[4] and Marisa Tomei expressed interest in reprising her role as Aunt May from the previous film.[25]

Pre-production

At the end of August 2017, as the film was entering pre-production,[23] Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, two of the writers on Homecoming, were in final negotiations to return for the sequel.[26] In early October 2017, Jacob Batalon confirmed he would reprise his role of Ned in the film.[9] In December 2017, Feige confirmed that Watts would return to direct the sequel.[27] By February 2018, Zendaya was slated to return for the film, reprising her role as Michelle "MJ" Jones.[6] By late April, filming was scheduled to begin in early July 2018, with Feige noting filming would occur in London, instead of Atlanta as with the first film. Feige noted one of the reasons behind this was because a majority of the film would be spent around the world, outside New York City.[28] A month later, Jake Gyllenhaal entered negotiations to play Mysterio, while Tomei and Michael Keaton were confirmed to reprise their roles in the film; McKenna and Sommers were also confirmed as the film's screenwriters.[5][29] At the end of June 2018, Holland revealed the film's title to be Spider-Man: Far From Home,[30] and the casting of Gyllenhaal was confirmed.[7] Feige explained that there was potential for the title to leak after filming began, so they decided to reveal it themselves.[31] He compared the title to Spider-Man: Homecoming in that it is "full of alternate meaning" while continuing the use of "Home",[32] and added that the film focuses on Parker and his friends going to Europe on summer vacation, away from their home of New York.[3]

Filming

Principal photography began on location in Hertfordshire, England on July 2, 2018,[33] under the working title Fall of George.[34] Filming also took place in London,[28] with filming locations including East London.[35] Shortly after the start of filming, set photos revealed Hemky Madera would reprise his role as Mr. Delmar, the owner of a local bodega,[11] and J.B. Smoove and Numan Acar joined the cast.[13][12] By early August, Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders were confirmed to be appearing in the film, reprising their respective roles of Nick Fury and Maria Hill from previous MCU films,[8] and Remy Hii joined the cast later in the month.[14] Filming is taking place in Prague and Liberec in the Czech Republic from September 7 through September 29, 2018.[36] Principal photography is expected to conclude in December 2018.[37]

Release

Spider-Man: Far From Home is scheduled to be released in the United States on July 5, 2019.[30]

Marketing

Due to Parker dying at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, and likely not being resurrected before the release of that film's sequel in May 2019, Germain Lussier of io9 noted that Sony would either have to begin marketing this film only two months before its release or spoil the fact that the character is resurrected for general audiences that may not realize that this would happen in the next Avengers film. Lussier suggested that the latter approach be taken, while a representative of Sony said that the studio would be working with Marvel to "figure out the Spider-Man strategy".[38]

Future

A potential third film would occur during Parker's senior year of high school.[17]
