Last night Tom Holland, who plays Spider-Man in the MCU, revealed the title to his upcoming sequel on his Instagram. In what has become an ongoing gag with the actor, he seemingly “leaked” the title by showing a picture of it on his tablet. Just as Marvel used this marketing tactic before with having him “leak” the Avengers: Infinity War poster. Spider-Man: Far From Home is the official title for Spider-Man’s second movie in the MCU.
Kevin Feige in an interview with Comicbook discussed why the decision on that to be the title and why they liked it.
“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.”
Rumors that the film would feature Peter on a field trip have been constant for a while, well before the announcement of the title. A big concern among fans is how Marvel will market the movie without spoiling anything from Avengers 4 with Spider-Man: Homecoming trailers revealing a lot of information about the plot of the movie, it has been a legitimate fear. When asked about this Feige said this.
“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 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.”
So he doesn’t exactly say how they’ll avoid it but with their ability to hide spoilers form trailers I trust them. Do you think they’ll be able to market the movie around Avengers 4 and do you like the title of the film? Let us know what you think by tweeting us at @SuperBroMovies.
