Marvel confirms when Spider-Man: Far From Home begins filming

Tom Holland is going to be swinging around the high-rises of New York City for Spider-Man: Far From Home again very, very soon.

Given the universe-shattering snap in Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel has understandably tried to keep quiet about what happens to Spidey after the events of Avengers 4, going so far as to have Tom cheekily deny that the wall-crawler would even get a sequel.

But, Marvel boss Kevin Feige has since come clean and confirmed that a number of post-Avengers 4 projects are getting ready to start production, including the follow-up to Spider-Man: Homecoming.

In a recent interview with Collider, Feige confirmed that Holland and company will begin filming the sequel with the next two weeks, or more generally, “early next month”.

Holland revealed, either accidentally or sneakily on purpose, over the weekend that the title of the Homecoming follow-up will be Spider-Man: Far From Home.

The gravity of the Far From Home subtitle was foreshadowed when Kevin Feige confirmed back in April that there would be a global scale to the sequel, as the majority of the action moves from New York to London.

“We shot the first film in Atlanta,” he recently explained. “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.”

Michael Keaton is expected to return as The Vulture for Far From Home, with Jake Gyllenhaal joining the franchise as mind-bending villain Mysterio as well.

Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released on July 5, 2019. Avengers: Infinity War is still out in some cinemas now. Book tickets here.
