Your friendly neighborhood "Spoiler-Man" has struck again!
Tom Holland has built a reputation for spoiling plot points in various movies -- sometimes even movies he's not in. He is aware of that reputation now, and just had some fun with it in a cheeky Instagram video revealing the title and logo for "Spider-Man 2."
In the video, Tom Holland apologized for having "no real revelations" about the new "Spider-Man" movie (other than to re-spoil the ending of "Avengers: Infinity War.") But he then shared a pretty big revelation about the "Spider-Man: Homecoming" sequel -- the title.
"I don't now much about it. I'm a little confused because I died. So I don't really know how it all comes into play. But what I do know is I've got the new script. I'm super excited to read it. It's going to be great. So yeah. 'Spider-Man 2.' Let's do this!"
While saying that, he held up his tablet showing the title of the new movie to be "Spider-Man: Far From Home."
He knew exactly what he was doing. For once, he got ahead of the message by playing it into his brand. Well done.
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige confirmed the title, and had this to say when CinemaBlend asked him to explain the meaning:
"[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.'"
At least one meaning for "Far From Home" reflects that this movie will take Peter Parker out of New York and to faraway places -- like London.
Feige talked about that with io9 back in April:
"We start filming early July. We film in London. We shot [the] 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."
This sequel will include Jake Gyllenhaal as the villain Mysterio ... and also somehow address the fallout from "Infinity War." Since it's coming out two months after "Avengers 4," it's probable that film will answer a lot of current questions.
"Spider-Man: Far From Home" opens in theaters on July 5, 2019.
