If you’re even just a casual fan of Tom Holland, by this point you probably know that Holland has become infamous for his accidental leaks and reveals of MCU secrets. From posters, to plot points, to character details, it seems Tom Holland just can’t keep a secret. Marvel Studios didn’t even let Holland read the full script for Avengers: Infinity War out of fear he would accidentally reveal major spoilers.
Holland even spoiled the plot to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom for Chris Pratt before Pratt had ever read the script. Holland got the info from Fallen Kingdom director J.A. Bayona, who he worked with on The Impossible.
Holland is currently at ACE Comic Con in Seattle, Washington, where he posted an Instagram video today telling fans he’s having a great time but apologizes for the fact that there won’t be any revelations about the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming at the con this weekend. Holland also said he was confused, because Peter Parker perished in the snap by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. He goes on to say that he has received the script and that he’s excited to read it, holding up a tablet with a title image that reads ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home‘.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming would take Peter Parker around the globe, and just last month news broke from Variety that Jake Gyllenhaal was in talks to play famous Spider-Man nemesis Mysterio. Micheal Keaton is set to return as Vulture, along with Zendaya as Michelle Jones, Jacob Batalon as Ned, and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May.
After making his first MCU appearance in Captain America: Civil War, Holland starred in his own solo film, Spider-Man: Homecoming. It was a critical and financial success, grossing $880 million worldwide. After the success of Homecoming, Sony was quick to greenlight a sequel, slated for release on July 5, 2019. Jon Watts is returning to direct, with Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers writing the screenplay. Filming is set to commence in London in July 2018.
One would assume that Peter Parker will make it out of the aftermath of Infinity War, despite disappearing after the snap. It’s safe to say at least Spider-Man will be revived in Avengers 4, though promotion for Spider-Man: Far From Home may prove to be difficult, as the Spidey sequel releases just two months after Avengers 4’s May 3, 2019 release date.
Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into theaters on July 5, 2019.
