Before we get too far into discussion, obviously this video was staged to parody Tom Holland’s propensity to spoil upcoming Marvel Movies and reveals, which was initially parodied with the reveal of Infinity War’s Release Date. With the announcement of the new film, fans are already speculating on what Far From Home will be about, given that Peter Parker in the MCU is well…. Dead. We do know a few things about the film, so let’s break it down for you and what this could all mean. Again, potential spoilers for the upcoming film.
-Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to play Mysterio in the film.
-The title is referencing the fact that Spidey will be leaving New York and heading overseas for a new adventure. The rumored title for the sequel was Spider-Man: Field Trip.
-Robert Downey Jr. has stated that he will not be appearing in Far From Home. After his major role in Homecoming and the father figure role he played for Peter in Infinity War, it would be weird to have Tony Stark not show up at all in Far From Home, which does take place after Avengers 4 (The title of which will most likely not be announced until the end of 2019), it could be assumed that the film might center around the death of Tony Stark and how his prodigy is handling the death.
-The Film begins production in two weeks, so don’t expect any trailers at SDCC, but there may be a teaser before the end of the year.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will be directed by Jon Watts and release sometime in 2019.
