    Default Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)


    Spider-Man: Far From Home Cast, Release Date, Story, Villain, Story, and More News
    It looks like the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer is coming soon...

    Marvel Studios and Sony wasted no time in locking in a sequel for Spider-Man: Homecoming, first announcing it back in December 2016, right after the earliest teaser was released. John Watts returns as director. Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is known as Spider-Man: Far From Home.

    Filming was completed in London earlier this year, meaning Spidey will spend some time outside of NYC in this one.

    Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer

    There are rumors circulating that a trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home will arrive within the week. That would make sense so they can get it playing with the wonderful Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in theaters.\

    Spider-Man 2 News

    More of a joke than hardhitting news, we cannot begrudge Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal teasing fans with the below Instagram of himself reading an apparent mind-bender of a Spider-Man comic... featuring his alter-ego Mysterio as the big baddie!

    Could this mean a trailer is imminent? Well, we do know a certain other Spider-Man movie is opening next week...

    Spider-Man 2 Cast

    Tom Holland and Marissa Tomei will return as Peter Parker and Aunt May, and we expect Jacob Batalon to return as Ned Leeds, as well. Jake Gyllenhaal will be here as Mysterio, too. We have more info on that right here. Zendaya is also returning as MJ (Michelle, not Mary Jane).

    JB Smoove will play "a lead in the ensemble" according to Deadline. No other details are available, but all I can say right now is...please let him be J. Jonah Jameson.

    And as for other returning characters, well, we'll just let the man himself tell you...

    In other words, regardless of the events of Avengers: Infinity War, it's safe to say that certain other things will be back to normal after Avengers 4 and before Spider-Man: Far From Home.

    Numan Acar (12 Strong, Prison Break, Homeland) has joined the cast of Spider-Man: Far from Home, reports Deadline.

    The only thing revealed about Acar’s role is that he will play a character named “Dimitri.” However, purely for the sake of context, the name “Dimitri” in the annals of Marvel Comics has referred to a few characters. The obvious choice is the Spider-Man-pertinent character of Dmitri Smerdyakov, a.k.a. The Chameleon, the scheming master of disguise, who also happens to be Spidey's first proper supervillain, first appearing in solo series launch issue The Amazing Spider-Man #1 back in 1963.

    However, in the spirit of getting obscure, there’s also Dimitri Bukharin, an updated version of Iron Man villain Crimson Dynamo, a character whose original version manifested in Iron Man 2 as Mickey Rourke’s Ivan Vanko, an amalgamation of Crimson Dynamo and villain Whiplash. Second, there’s Dimitri Smirkov, a.k.a. M.O.D.O.T., an alternate version of the giant-headed hoverchair-rocking villain, M.O.D.O.K.

    ...Just throwing that out there. Read nothing into any of it. Considering the new franchise's affinity for Ditko-era Spidey villains, Chameleon seems like the most likely choice.

    Vulture reports that Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders are signing on for another mission post-SHIELD and post-Thanos snap. Details are scarce at the moment, but they are of course appearing as their characters Nick Fury, former director of SHIELD (unless SHIELD is still out there, which is kind of nebulous in the film side of Marvel), and Maria Hill, the second in command. Jackson has been in the MCU since the beginning with 2008's Iron Man, and Smulders is also a longtime mainstay, first appearing in Joss Whedon's The Avengers (2012).

    What makes their inclusion in Spider-Man: Homecoming intriguing is that both characters technically died in May's Avengers: Infinity War. Zapped into dust during the final end credits sequence. Then again, Spidey himself also got vaporized, so presumably they all get better.

    Spider-Man 2 Release Date

    Spider-Man: Far From Home is coming on July 5, 2019.

    Spider-Man 2 Villain

    While there will probably be more than one villain involved, we do know that Jake Gyllenhaal is on board as Quentin Beck, known as Mysterio. Beck is a disgraced Hollywood stuntman and special effects guru who turns to crime. This actually brings some intriguing new elements to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and we outlined some of those possibilities right here.

    Spider-Man 2 Story

    “We've chosen a villain, and I think the story line is fairly impacted by the locations we go to," Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told us recently. "We love the notion of taking Spider-Man to places around the world that we haven't seen him in before. And we have a villain who I think will play into that nicely.”

    That "places around the world" quote makes us feel that maybe Peter feels he needs to find himself after seeing things he never expected to see in Avengers: Infinity War. It would make sense that once you encounter aliens (and more), it's not enough to be just a "friendly neighborhood Spider-Man" anymore.

    Anyway, now that Spider-Man: Far From Home title makes a lot more sense, doesn't it?

    Spider-Man 2 Characters

    One difference this time is that instead of teaming up with Iron Man, THR reports that there will be a different Marvel Studios hero accompanying Peter on his adventures. Spidey and Doctor Strange? Spidey and Captain America? Place your bets!

    There are reports that Spidey will cross paths with a European "femme fatale" type character, as well. Could this be the MCU version of Felicia Hardy? Maybe Silver Sable?

    We'll update this as more information becomes more available.
