Sony Pictures has officially unveiled the logo for their upcoming film Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Not much is known about the film’s plot except that it will be taking place in different countries around the globe and that it will be Marvel Studios’ jumping off point for a new story arc following Avengers 4.
Looking at the logo, it’s evident it doesn’t stray too far from the design of the Homecoming‘s so that’s a good indication that the film will be tonally similar to its predecessor. This shouldn’t come as a surprise since key members from the first film’s creative team are returning for the sequel including director Jon Watts and co-writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers. The sequel looks like it plans to keep the lighthearted feel of Homecoming, but it will likely have its fair share of drama since it is coming out mere months after the weighty conclusion of Avengers 4. Marvel Studio’s positioning of this film is likely purposeful as it would serve as a nice palate cleanser from all the doom and gloom and will give the universe’s next arc a youthful and energetic jump-start. This is thanks to Tom Holland’s dedicated performance as Spider-Man/Peter Parker, who will be reprising his role for the sequel. He has previously appeared in Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Avengers: Infinity War.
Peter’s ultimate fate is yet to be seen as the ending of Avengers: Infinity War left him as little more than dust in the wind. Whatever happens, it is likely Peter will have some sort of trauma to deal with heading into Spider-Man: Far From Home. Not to mention his rogues gallery is heating up, so maybe his first interaction with the Sinister Six isn’t too far in the future.
2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming was the first solo outing for Spider-Man in the MCU, garnering wide-spread critical and commercial success, and earning the film $880.1 million at the global box office. Thanks to Spider-Man‘s presence and popularity in Infinity War, it is likely the sequel will surpass $1 billion.
Spider-Man: Far From Home releases in theaters July 5, 2019.
