The second part of the trilogy was revealed to be called SpiderMan: Far from Home when Tom Holland himself accidentally revealed it. The president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, also confirmed it soon after the incident. The sequel began shooting in July 2018, and its release date is currently scheduled to be in the same month of 2019. While many longtime fans of the series have a place in their hearts for previous Spiderman Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, they are certain the the new Spiderman will be a great addition to the series. Being such a great fans of the series, we can’t wait to hear more about the movie, so here is what we know so far.

Marisa Tomei is also likely to be back as Aunt May. Robert Downey Jr. is reportedly not going to be returning as Iron Man, although there will be another Marvel character to take his place.

As for the bad guys, Jake Gyllenhaal is reportedly in talks to play the villain, Mysterio. Numan Acar has been cast to play Dimitri, but there is not a lot of information about this character.
