Spider-Man: Far From Home will mark the 5th appearance of Tom Holland in the MCU and he will be the fastest to actually have appeared 5 times. Within just 4 years, he will have appeared in 2 solo Spidey movies and3 mega-crossover events. Marvel is really great at marketing their movies but their first film of Phase 4 actually does not need a big marketing push because the marketing of the second Spider-Man film has been going on through set leaks ever since the movie began shooting 3.5 months ago.
We saw the film begin its shooting in Tom Holland’s home city London, where the first set photos of Holland hit the net. Then the shoot went on to Venice and Prague, and quite a lot of reveals were teased from those locations. We got a hint of Hydro-Man being involved. Set photos revealed the involvement of Happy Hogan, Nick Fury, and Maria Hill. The giant wheel sequence in Prague gave us the first look at Spider-Man: Noir inspired stealth suit and it also revealed Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio.
Now when the shoot moved back to New York at the beginning of October we got even more set reveals as we got our very first look at the new suit Spidey will be wearing in the film. Peter will switch from the Homecoming Stark suit to the new Black Stealth suit, and then he will finally don the new Red-Black Spider suit based on a rejected concept art of Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The recent set photos did not just reveal the new suit, but we also got a tease at a new relationship building between Spidey/Peter and Michelle/MJ. These last three months have been really remarkable and we do know quite a lot about the upcoming Spider-Man movie (even more so than Captain Marvel and Avengers 4). Tom Holland celebrated his final day moving onto the sets. Here’s what he posted:
The film has finally wrapped production and it will now move into the post-production stage. Holland announced the wrap through his Instagram in great swag posting a photo in his new Spidey suit along with Zendaya’s Michelle:
It is good to know that all three upcoming MCU movies of 2019 are now in the post-production stage. Captain Marvel will obviously be close to finishing its VFX and special effects because it comes out first. Avengers 4 will come out almost 2 months later and the Russos have given us the deadline of March to wrap the post-production of the film. For Spider-Man: Far From Home, the post-production stage could drag on to May. So everything is in total sync!
Spider-Man: Far From Home will be a refreshing film after the insane events of Avengers 4. Here’s what Kevin Feige had to say:
“Much like Ant-Man, there are things that people know about that movie, which is a great deal of the movie: the villain of the movie, the storyline of the film, that we’re shooting in Europe and that Peter Parker goes on continuing that [Captain America: Civil War] was a big giant super hero class movie. The fall out of that in Homecoming was John Hughes and him going to his high school. So that’s what’s fun to us about the Spider-Man movies. And again going from Infinity War to Ant-Man and the Wasp, the tonal shift. So, there’s a lot of fun stuff. How it connects, where it connects, when it takes place, very similar to Ant-Man and the Wasp in that we’re not gonna say right now.”
Feige went on to talk about the title of the film and how it will incorporate into the film. He said:
“Well, I mean, sure, let the speculation begin. That’s always fun. We like [the title] of course because it ties into Homecoming, not just keeping that word going, which we like and we liked it more than Homecoming 2, but that notion of ‘home’ is a word that has dual meanings we’d like to continue with this [Marvel Cinematic Universe] version of Spider-Man. So, Far From Home has multiple meanings.”
Spider-Man: Far From Home hits the theatres on July 5, 2019.
