Far From Home now in Theaters

Marvel has got a good start this year, with Captain Marvel released earlier this year. The next released Avengers: Endgame made records and created milestones. Now Spider-Man: Far From Home joins the que.

Debuting on Tuesday in over 4,600 theaters, Jon Watts‘ superhero sequel tallied an impressive $39.2 million.

Fortunately, the film has surpassed the record of The Amazing Spider-Man, which made $35 in 2012. Far From Home is expected to bring about $125-$150 over the extended Fourth July Holiday.

According to Variety,  that strong start signals a successful holiday week and weekend ahead for Far From Home.

Internationally, the film has already opened in China, Japan, and Hong Kong to the tune of $111 million so far. By Sunday, global estimates should reach a half billion for the Jon Watts-directed movie.

Worldwide, Spider-Man: Far From Home has collected $111 million after opening last weekend in China and Japan.

Good to say, the movie has made a fast growth beyond the first film in the rebooted franchise.

Over the same course in 2017, Spider-Man: Homecoming took in $117 million over a three-day weekend.

Spider-Man: Far From Home once again stars Tom Holland in the lead role as he encounters the villainous Mysterio, portrayed by Jake Gyllenhaal.

Spider-Man in Columbia Pictures’ SPIDER-MAN: ™ FAR FROM HOME

Holland’s first solo adventure, Spider-Man: Homecoming, grossed $880 million worldwide.

Spider-Man liked by fans

Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is now established as one of the more popular characters in the MCU and Far From Home was jumping off from the mega-hit Endgame.

Spider-Man: Far From Home has been strong, with fans and critics alike all giving the film high praise.

That consensus of approval should get more families out over the holidays, and the buzz around Far From Home’s epic post-credits scenes is a definite draw for MCU die-hards.

Peter Parker aka Spider-Man is already in vain and depressed for losing his mentor. As the film depicts, the events revolve around the effects of Endgame.

It seems Tony Stark, Nick Fury has some different plans for the kid superhero.

The possibilities for the film to come at a lower end are less, as the Spider-Man character has had a large presence on the big screen lately.

Spider-Man got an entry in Marvel since Captain America: Civil War and then featured in Infinity saga. With the entry in Marvel Tom Holland got a two solo movie, first in 2017 Spider-Man: Homecoming and the newly released Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Last week, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse went to Netflix for streaming, an unrelated animated featuring Spider-Man.

Currently Spider-Man: Far From Home and Avengers: Endgame is in theaters, with Endgame getting its digital print on July 30th and Blu-ray on August 13th.

The tragic events of Avengers: Endgame may have closed the paths of some superheroes, Phase 4 may look into the situation and more movies to come forward in this era.

And of course, there will also be several Marvel characters with their own shows on Disney’s new streaming site, Disney+.

The official release dates

It looks like Disney will make official announcements at their Hall H panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, it wouldn’t be a surprise if they only confirmed projects that are already known to be in development and release in the coming years.

Black Widow

The stand-alone film about the Avengers’ Black Widow doesn’t have a premiere date yet, but we do know that the story is reportedly taking place before the first Avengers movie, so we might get to see a bit of the spy-turned-heroine’s origin story.

Considering that Black Widow is likely the next movie to enter production, we think it’s a fair guess that this will be the Marvel film to drop on May 1, 2020.

Black Panther 2

While it hasn’t been officially confirmed, a sequel to 2018’s Black Panther is already a given.

The movie was a record-breaking smash hit and universally loved, plus we all want to go back to Wakanda!

It’s been rumored that Ryan Coogler has signed up to direct the follow-up, and we cannot wait to see what he comes up with for the sequel.

Since any work on the film has been very hush-hush, we’ll put this one around the Feb. 12, 2021 date, which would make its release around three years after the first.

The Eternals

Another cosmic superhero team is joining the Marvel roaster! Based on Jack Kirby’s comics, The Eternals focuses on a cosmic group called the Celestials, which creates two super-powered beings called the Eternals and the Deviants.

The first star to be attached to the project was Angelina Jolie, followed quickly by Kumail Nanjiani and Richard Madden. Chloé Zhao has been tapped to direct, though the film’s story has been on the very deep hush-hush.

Doctor Strange 2

After years of rumors, Marvel is finally pushing ahead with Doctor Strange 2. C. Robert Cargill will reportedly return as a writer, while Scott Derickson is on board as director.

Benedict Wong has suggested filming could begin later this year, essentially confirming this for a 2021 release.

Shang Chi

Marvel is reportedly fast-tracking production on Destin Daniel Cretton’s Shang-Chi, with filming scheduled to begin in the fall. As per leak reports, Mandarin will be the main villain, that could redeem Iron Man. The movie is also slated to release in February 2021 that may coincide with Chinese New Year.

Spider-Man Sequel

Tom Holland was originally contracted for six Marvel movies, which means that there’s sure to be a third Spider-Man film as part of the MCU. Holland’s solo Marvel movie Spider-Man: Far From Home released this week in theaters. As we know, Marvel is keen on making trilogy movies, so Spider-Man could also have a third sequel, could happen as soon as 2021.  

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was pushed back due to writer-director James Gunn being fired, and then re-hired, by Disney. It’s intended to be a swan song for the OG Guardians, and may feature Thor, who joined the crew of the Benatar at the end of Avengers: Endgame. Due to busy schedule of Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has probably been pushed back to 2023.

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ full movie leaked online on Torrent

Marvel Studios has again taken over the box office with its new flick Spider-Man: Far From Home.

The previously released Avengers: Endgame stormed the box office and created milestones for future movies.

Also, see Avengers Endgame vs Avatar box office: Even after the re-release, Endgame falls short of Avatar

Far From Home Leaked!

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ is a new addition to Marvel’s solo Spider-Man movie, much-hyped movie of the year with Tom Holland playing the title character.

But much to the shock of fans, the movie has already been leaked online on piracy websites for download and streaming days ahead of its release in U.S. and India.

However, the quality of the pirated leaked movie is of poor quality camera-rip. The movie got a release in China and some Asian countries over the weekend.

The leaked print of the movie has subtitles in the Chinese language, may have been leaked from China. Spider-Man: Far From Home is the last in the queue in Phase 3 and concludes 23 films.

The leaked print is now available on torrent websites with file size varying from 1GB to over 2GB and has runtime one hour 54 minutes.

However, the original movie has a runtime of two hours nine minutes. The ripped file also had intermittent watermarks and advertisements for 1xBET, a Russia-based online betting company.

Though most of the movies released nowadays get pirated the day before the release, making financial loses to the makers.

But here, the leaked print is of very low video and audio quality that has been recorded by a handheld camera.

So its a kind of relief to Disney and Marvel of the movie. Also, the leaked print has a shorter runtime than the original movie, which implies that they aren’t the full thing.

Essentially, all the leaked versions of the full movie only reinforce the fact that you should check it out for yourself on the big screen.

Tom Holland in MCU

Tom Holland joined MCU with Captain America: Civil War in 2016. He had his first solo movie under MCU with Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), and will be back as the superhero with his second solo film Far From Home.

The Marvel movie grossed nearly $111 million dollars in its opening weekend in two Asian countries.

With the release, Spider-Man: Far From Home stands third in the list of best opening for a superhero movie after the Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity Wars.

The new Marvel Cinematic Universe film opens Tuesday in the UK and the US, Wednesday in France and South Africa, and Thursday in India, Australia, Germany, Russia, and the UAE among several other regions across the week.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is to release in India on July 4, is set minutes after Avengers: Endgame wraps up the Infinity Saga.

Directed by Jon Watts, the movie follow up Spider-Man: Homecoming and shows events aftermath of Avengers: Endgame.  Far From Home sees Holland return as Peter Parker, whose alter-ego Spider-Man is recruited for a special mission by Nick Fury..

Tom Holland Thinks Tony Stark Is The New Uncle Ben Figure

When it comes to Peter Parker aka Spider-Man, it seems he’s unlucky with father figures. Every version of Spider-Man has lost one of its favorite person in his lives.

We saw the tragic scenes unfold in both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man movies, but the MCU seemed to gloss right over Uncle Ben when it came to be Tom Holland’s turn.

Also, see Spider-Man: Far From Home Swings In With Spectacular Rotten Tomatoes Score

Holland in an interview

In a recent interview, Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home star Tom Holland opened up about Peter Parker’s relationship with the late Tony Stark, whom he had come to look up to after the death of his Uncle Ben.

The demise of dear ol’ Ben after Peter failed to stop the crook who would be responsible for the crime is a well-known part of Spider-Man lore, having first been depicted in the character’s debut appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15.

Previous film incarnations of Spidey have always prominently featured the narrative beat; Tobey Maguire’s Peter sobbed over the body of Cliff Robertson’s Uncle Ben, while Andrew Garfield’s version of the wall-crawler mourned the loss of an uncle who happened to look a whole lot like Martin Sheen.

In their interview with Holland, Uproxx mentioned that the MCU’s Peter didn’t initially have an origin story based on losing Uncle Ben.

Though, as we saw in Avengers: Endgame, Peter ended up losing Tony Stark, who became more of an important figure in his life than any Uncle Been we saw on screen. Holland agreed that Tony has taken over that role, saying:

“I think he probably was, you know? I think he was very– very much took on the mantle as his father figure, and losing him is a huge blow to Peter Parker obviously. And that’s what’s so nice about Mysterio kind of flying in is that he can fill those shoes a little bit and be Peter Parker’s mentor and his big brother at the same time”

Holland playing Spider-Man’s character

Holland has mentioned before that his character and Mysterio will get on quite well in the movie.

And we’ve said countless times before that were highly suspicious of Mysterio’s motives. He is a comic book villain after all, and we don’t think he’ll be innocent for long.

We don’t doubt that he and Peter will be best of friends, though. That seems pretty solidified at this point. But the disappointing thing will be if Peter loses Mysterio’s trust, especially since he’s still hurt about losing Tony.

becomes the Uncle Ben figure in the MCU, that doesn’t take away the fact that Peter became a hero because of the death of his original mentor. Whether or not the MCU will fully tackle that moving forward is another conversation.

But in the service of what’s been established in the MCU, it makes sense that Iron Man’s death affects his mentee deeply reminiscent of how past incarnations of the character were impacted by Uncle Ben’s demise.

Jake Gyllenhaal Reveals Why He Loves Spider-Man Actor Tom Holland So Much

With few days left to the Marvel’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, fans are excited to see what it sets up for the MCU future after the events of Avengers: Endgame.

Spiderman Far From Home

This new film is about the story of the true strong friendship between the stars Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal a.k.a Mysterio.

When these two stars came together for their film’s press tour, it was like seeing a new version of Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie. The Marvel Studios welcomed Jake Gyllenhaal into their universe.

Also, see Spider-Man: Far From Home’s Spectacular Runtime Revealed

Jake and Holland at a press tour

Jake typically stays away from these big-ticket films like Spider-Man film and he is always known for his smaller but effective roles in films which are not big on budget.

While talking with GQ about the most iconic films that he loved to play, he literally took a minute to speak about his co-star Tom Holland.

Jake Gyllenhaal was seen in a joking mood while he tagged Holland as nothing less than as a disaster before starting seriously.

“Disastrous times, he’s got a bland personality, he’s basically just very boring,” Gyllenhaal joked about Holland before getting serious. “It was genuinely lovely. He puts everything into making Spider-Man great.

He knows how much pressure there is on him and he knows how much people care about that character, and he puts everything physically, emotionally, mentally into it. I think it wasn’t until literally a day ago when he saw the movie finally that he said he could relax.”

Jake Gyllenhaal sheds light on how Tom Holland advised him when he started off in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, just like how everyone else did. This is how actually both the actors became such good friends.

“He offered me a lot of advice that I needed, and he just constantly was like ‘Yes, that’s exactly how everyone feels when they first start off in this space.’ And we just became friends that way,” Gyllenhaal explained.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Holland’s bromance

Talking about working with Holland, Jake said:

“I think he admires me, I admire him, both for very different reasons. And as much as actors in press junkets after the fact like to talk about how wonderful the other one was to work with, and who knows if it’s true or not half the time. I really like him a lot as a human being and I enjoy being with him outside of all this stuff so that all went into the movie as well.”

Since the movie is about to release, the duo actors are busy in promotions. The movie will hit theaters July 2 worldwide.

Spider-Man: Far From Home Swings In With Spectacular Rotten Tomatoes Score

With the Endgame’s craze going down among fans, Marvel has yet another deal to boost it again for the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home.

The movie is yet to get into theaters, only then we know if it lives up to the hype.

Far From Home Spoiler-Free Reviews!

On June 26, Marvel arranged a special premiere of the movie ahead of the Spider-Man: Far From Home public release.

Fans will get an idea of what they will get to see and things to seem to be positive so far.

It’s currently got a 91% approval on Rotten Tomatoes from 41 reviews counted, so it’s currently trailing Homecoming’s 92% Tomatometer rating by just one point.

Check out the review highlights below, and click through for the full takes.

Games Radar (4 / 5 stars):

“Holland cements his position as the finest live-action wall-crawler.

His physicality is flawless, but its Pete’s endearingly goofy demeanor that sets him apart from webheads past, the film never forgetting that Pete is a teenager dealing with responsibilities no-one his age should have thrust upon them.

When he confides in a sympathetic Mysterio that he wants a break from saving the world, it feels completely relatable, despite the comically exaggerated stakes.”

Empire (4 / 5 stars):

“Far From Home is a looser film than Homecoming, with pacing that occasionally slackens, and a compulsion to give every minor character time to shine.

But it’s a light-footed summer blockbuster that faces Endgame’s monolithic legacy head-on, before leaving it behind to embark on its own globetrotting adventure. The MCU doesn’t need a new Iron Man yet — Far From Home proves it’s more than safe in the web-slinging hands of Spider-Man.”

Entertainment Weekly (B grade):

“I wound up liking Far From Home more than any Spider-Man film this decade. There’s something eerie in the constant assertion of Tony Stark as Tycoon SuperJesus — but don’t underestimate the shifty layers the final act.

The hero worship has a slippery quality here, with a less cheerful purpose than the sincere devotion of Homecoming or Into the Spider-Verse.”

USA Today (3 / 4 stars):

“Watts’ two Spider-Man films are aces at prioritizing the high-school experience over the superhero stuff: Far From Home tackles young romance, summer flings and the way two kids can “fall in love” in just a matter of hours.

Marvel hasn’t always done that sort of stuff well – look how many movies it took Captain America to finally kiss soulmate Peggy Carter – but there’s a fun “Will they or won’t they?” push-and-pull between Holland and Zendaya.”

Image by Movie Web

The Guardian (3 / 5 stars):

 “Holland is very good but he needs someone to play against, someone with Downey’s heft. That someone could well be Zendaya, like MJ, the great love of Peter Parker’s life.

We shall have to see how the Marvel franchise plays this romance in forthcoming episodes.”

IndieWire (2.5 / 5 stars):

“The Spider-Man we find at the end of the movie is no different than the one we met at the start; he’s more confident now, and ready to accept a truth of his own design, but you can’t help but feel like he could have learned all of the same things without leaving Queens or wasting our time.”

Spider-Man: Far From Home is in UK cinemas on 2 July.

Spider-Man: Far From Home’s Spectacular Runtime Revealed

We are now a just week ahead of Marvel’s mega release Spider-Man: Far From Home in theaters.

Fans have already booked their seats and planned with their moviegoing buddies.

Moreover, Marvel has also released Avengers: Endgame’s re-release this week. So, fans have been anxious to see how the latest MCU flick will pave the way for Phase 4.

Also, see Sony’s Spider-Man Spinoffs Will Remain Standalone Films.

Far From Home runtime revealed

We all know Endgame was a bit lengthy, but the new update over the latest release will bring a smile on your faces.

Now just before the official release, the official runtime of the movie is revealed. According to the British Board of Film Classification, the next adventure for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man clocks in at 129 minutes, or two hours and nine minutes.

The earlier released Spider-Man: Homecoming had a runtime of 133 minutes, a little longer than upcoming and in the middle of the rest of the MCU pack.

The Two hours plus runtime can see the development for both Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio and a post-Tony Stark Spider-Man, who looks to be doing battle with the otherworldly Elementals.

This also means Spider-Man Far From Home is almost an hour shorter than Avengers Endgame.

Of course, this isn’t too surprising since the latter was a climatic crossover epic and the newer Spider-Man is summer blockbuster like the Ant-Man.

Looking at past Spider-Man flicks, the longest runtime was that of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 at 142 minutes, with shortest, with the shortest being 2002’s Spider-Man, clocking in at 121 minutes.

Surprisingly, this news confirms a recent theory that the total runtime of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be 3000 minutes, as Spider-Man: Far From Home’s runtime takes it up to that number.

By ScreenGeek

That’s more than likely a coincidence (“I love you, 3000” was included in Avengers: Endgame because that’s what one of Robert Downey Jr.’s children says to him) but it’s still very interesting.

The end of Phase 3..

Spider-Man: Far From Home closes the gate of Phase 3 officially and will open the doors for Phase 4.

It will reveal how MCU is going after the tragic events of Endgame and Infinity Wars. Peter Parker aka Spider-Man is shown mourning the loss of his mentor after Tony sacrificed himself for the world.

Plus, Tom Holland’s character been nothing but dust for the previous five years. The movie’s early reception is overwhelmingly positive, so so the fandom should be excited about its impending release.

Opening up July 2, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home, expected to earn $120 million in its opening weekend. It is already expected to have a large opening weekend, possibly beating out Homecoming.

Sony’s Spider-Man Spinoffs Will Remain Standalone Films

In the coming years, we’ll be seeing Sony and Marvel Spider-Man movies in a different spin. Earlier this week, we just saw Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige teased that a Venom/Spider-Man crossover film would likely happen in the near future.

Fans were excited and thinking about the crossover as Sony’s Venom was last year hit.

Also, see Avengers: Endgame Re-Release Bonus Material Revealed.

Amy Pascal Spoke about Spider-Man

The producer of Spider-Man: Homecoming and the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home, Amy Pascal spoke with Screen Rant about the spin-offs while on a press tour for latter’s release.

She was asked about Sony’s character merging in MCU. She responded,

“The most important thing is that each of these movies can stand on their own. So I think the first thing for us to think about is: Venom has to stand on its own, Far From Home has to stand on its own, Spider-Verse has to stand on its own. They all have to be great movies themselves. And then the possibilities are endless…”

Pascal addressed the possibilities for future Sony Spider-Man films, saying,

“That’s the thing about the Spidey universe. There are so many characters; we haven’t even scratched the surface of it. I’m always getting calls from Dan Slott saying, “But you haven’t done this one yet! You haven’t done that one yet!”

Pascal attempted to clear things up, but she may have made the situation even more confusing.

While it’s evident that Sony wants their Spider-Man spinoffs to succeed on their own merit, she doesn’t rule out that they could crossover into the MCU somewhere down the line.

At this point in time, Marvel fans shouldn’t be too concerned about seeing Jared Leto’s Morbius or a currently-uncast Black Cat interact with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man anytime soon though.

Image by Movie Web

Pascals clears that currently, Sony is eying on their upcoming stand-alone movies.

Sony on the way for Venom 2

Sony hasn’t had the greatest track record when it comes to developing solo Spider-Man movies and spinoffs in the past, so it’s promising to see that they’re trying to put the properties themselves first instead of immediately chasing after the quickest buck.

Pascal’s comments seem to imply that they have much larger plans once Venom 2, Morbius, and their other future films get off the ground.

While Venom wasn’t the critical hit that fans have come to expect from Marvel Studios, still it managed to break big box office records and took the internet by storm.

Sony already made the movie PG-13, so that it could pave the way for Marvel and also recently Kevin Feige too seemed to be optimistic for the crossover.

Of course, this is all up to Sony, but with next month’s Far From Home introducing Holland’s Spider-Man to the multiverse, the possibilities for interconnecting the two cinematic universes truly does feel. Spider-Man: Far From Home will hit theaters on July 2.

Tom Holland Spoiled Avengers Endgame For Far From Home Co-Stars

Our Spidey Tom Holland is well known for revealing massive spoilers in media and in interviews.

It looks like his spoiler streak isn’t over yet. Tom Holland told his “Spider-Man: Far From Home” costars about a major “Avengers: Endgame” death years ago. Holland has infamously loose lips when it comes to Marvel movie secrets.

Also, see Why Tom Holland Really Wants A Spider-Man And Doctor Strange Team-Up Movie.

Tom Holland reveals something again

Recently, Spider-Man: Far From Home actor Tom Holland appeared on The Graham Norton Show with Emmy-winning entertainment actor Jake Hamilton on Friday night.

Once again revealed some highly classified intel: Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) dies at the end of Avengers: Endgame.

Tom admitted that he told Zendaya and Jacob Batalon about Tony Stark’s death in Endgame years before the film hit theaters.

“The film is a direct continuation of Avengers: Endgame so we deal with the ramifications of the blip, of the death of Tony Stark,” “Sorry if anyone hasn’t seen the film! If you haven’t, then you’re living under a rock, to be honest.”

“He told me too early,” Zendaya said. According to Batalon’s memory, Holland dished up the devastating dirt about three years ago: “I feel like we talked about this way back in, like, 2016.”

Iron Man’s death was a huge moment for the Marvel fans and the scene was a major misstep by Marvel regulation.

The leak may have left Zendaya and Batalon square in their heart.

Holland stated that he simply told Zendaya and Batalon, “Yo, what’s up? Iron Man dies!” Though Holland’s tone of voice made it sound like a joke, Zendaya recalled, “Honestly, that’s probably exactly how it went.”

The English actor maintained his belief that a bandaid-rip-style reveal is “the best way to hear” a spoiler as massive as Iron Man’s death.

“You think you want to experience that in the cinema for the first time? No!” he said.

Holland’s spoiling nature

It was later revealed by Tom Holland that he already knew the fate of Iron-Man “for a really long time.” It seems that it was no use trying to stop himself from telling his pals.

It shouldn’t surprise you when we say that this has become something of a personality trait of Holland’s.

After joining MCU, he has repeatedly spoiled every movie he works in through various means.

He let slip details about a scene in Spider-Man: Homecoming during a live Q&A session, spoiling his own death in Avengers: Infinity War.

Also “leaking” the title and logo for Spider-Man: Far From Home on social media, and “accidentally” leaked the initial poster of Avengers: Infinity Wars during an Instagram live stream.

The Russo Brothers even told IndieWire that because of his inability to keep spoilers secret, Holland didn’t even get to read the Endgame script.

It looks like Holland may have a tough time in leaving his practice of spilling the beans but it may take time.

Why Tom Holland Really Wants A Spider-Man And Doctor Strange Team Up Movie

Marvel is well known for crossing over their characters beautifully. The interconnectivity opens the door wide open for various interesting pairings and team-ups even outside of the huge Avengers movies.

Also, see Every Suit Confirmed For Spider-Man: Far From Home

Doctor Strange–Spidey Team

Earlier, we saw Thor–Hulk team up in Thor: Ragnarok resulted in a truly unique work of comedy, while the pairing of Tony Stark and Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Homecoming brought about some emotionally powerful moments that were then carried over into Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.

Spider-Man has been a part of five movies with Tom Holland’s  Marvel’s definitely made the most of having Spider-Man in the MCU over his past five movies, with Tom Holland’s wallcrawler rubbing shoulders with pretty much all of the Avengers by now.

We may see the actor again in the Marvel Universe, though we saw the Spidey–Doctor Strange teamed up in Avengers: Infinity War.

Image by Inverse

Its look like more to be explored of this team in the future.

Meanwhile, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland talked with CinemaBlend about teaming of Doctor Strange and Spider-Man.

“I’m really wanting to do a team-up with Doctor Strange because we’re both New Yorkers and I just really like the idea of a science guy being teamed up with a guy who does magic because it totally contradicts everything he knows.

And I like the idea that there is real science that Peter Parker talks about, and then there’s Doctor Strange gibberish, where he’s like ‘The time rift and the thing and the thing.’ So it’s kind of fun.”

Doctor Strange in other Marvel movies

As shown in Infinity War, there’s also the great contrast of personalities, as the dour Strange doesn’t seem to know what to make of a peppy kid like Peter. Then there’s Holland and Benedict Cumberbatch’s hilarious chemistry.

During the press conferences and met–up, we saw Benedict was all time together with Holland. There’s the reason for that, he was with him to prevent him from spoiling anything about the film.

Doctor Strange had a short role in Thor: Ragnarok as well as meeting heroes in Avengers movies. So, he might show up in, say, Spider-Man 3. Or maybe he could have a cameo in Doctor Strange 2.

We got similar magic vs. science dynamic between Doctor Strange and Iron Man in Avengers: Infinity War, but given how packed that movie was, After the Infinity Wars release, it was revealed that Spider-Man will have chance to cross paths in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

The multiverse chapter would be added to the list which will enable the Spidey to act with Strange.

Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige tried to frame out Doctor Strange appearance, as both, the actors were keen on working together.  For the moment, though, Peter’s got enough superhero shenanigans on his plate in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Not only will Nick Fury hijack his summer vacation, but there’s a new hero on the block in the form of Mysterio to contend with. The movie will hit theaters on July 2.

Every Suit Confirmed For Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man is the one character who has a big fan following and his suit is admired by millions. From the beginning, we have seen Spider-Man in many suits.

We have seen much change till the release of upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home.

As Tom Holland has revealed, producers made a much more important alteration that you didn’t see in the trailers. Let’s have look at the Spider-Man suits.

Also, see Every Villain Confirmed & Rumored For Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Original Stark Suit.

Spider-Man made his ways to Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of Captain America: Civil War.

As a part of Avengers, Tony Stark gave Peter his first “proper” suit, a technologically advanced version of the well-known blue-and-red attire synonymous with the hero.

Upgrading Parker’s skills and abilities across the board, the gift also came with the benefit of equipping the teenager with the tools to help Tony fight against Captain America.

Spider-Man: Homecoming saw the same suit, making it as formal MCU canon Spider-Man’s standard look. In the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, Aunt May sneaks it onto Peter’s luggage as he’d left it at home, hoping to enjoy his European school trip as a normal teenager and not as a masked vigilante fighting for justice.

Sadly, things are never that simple, and trouble finds Parker in short order.

Iron Spider Suit

At the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Peter Parker was seen rejecting the Iron Spider Suit along with the offer of joining Avengers.

However, it wasn’t long before he got to try it out, with Tony Stark deploying the suit to rescue Peter during the opening act of Avengers: Endgame.

The Iron Spider costume is armored and also comes with a collapsible helmet that allows Peter to breathe at high altitudes. As a bonus feature, it has metal spider legs that come out of the back and can be used for climbing or combat.

In the trailers, we’ve seen Peter using the Iron Spider suit to foil bad guys in New York City before heading off for his trip to Europe.

Stealth Suit

The stealth suit makes the jump to the big screen in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

The design and concept is an amalgamation of various looks – the original stealth suit was created in the comics in 2011 for a battle against Hobgoblin.

However, in the movie, the stealth suit will actually be a lot more low-tech; as producer Eric Carroll explained, “We thought it was funny too for Nick Fury to give a suit to Spider-Man that was just basically a tactical black jacket with pants and then slap the glasses on.”

Red and Black Suit

The new formal addition to the Spider-Man oeuvre is the red-and-black suit that’s used for many of the shots in the trailer.

Peter’s wearing it in both London in this footage and New York inset photos, so it’s safe to conclude this is what he will be wearing for the back half and climax of the movie.

Interesting enough, Spider-Man’s original design by Steve Ditko was with a red and black suit. Like many comic book colors, the highlights got filled in with blue as you see in other black objects like Superman’s hair.

It wasn’t until later that the blue highlights became more predominant and eventually became the default suit everyone knows.

Every Villain Confirmed & Rumored For Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home is just a week ahead of its release and rumors are flooding everywhere about the plot and villains.

There have been a lot of rumors and speculation about which villains will appear in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

With that being said, let’s take a look through the bad guys associated with Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Also, see Robert Downey Jr is as special to me as Tony Stark is to Peter Parker, says Tom Holland.

Mysterio

Jake Gyllenhaal is reported to playing the role of Mysterio, the main villain of the film. Marvel and Sony opted to keep his involvement secret throughout production and only recently confirmed his role,

Mysterio had been a part of Marvel comics and is being introduced to Marvel Cinematic Universe with Far From Home.

Hydro-man

When some behind the scenes pics were released by Spider-Man actor, Tom Holland while filming the Far From Home.

It was shown – his stunt double was struck down by a giant wave. Rumors suggested that Marvel was planning to introduce Hydro-Men who is Spider-Man’ most prominent water-based opponent.

The giant waves were shown in the first trailer and confirmed by producer Eric Carroll the Elemental is based on Hydro-Man.

Molten Man

Molten Man’s involvement in the Spider-Man: Far From Home was also confirmed in the movie’s first teaser trailer, along with his identity being revealed thanks to another Easter egg.

Sandman

Another Elemental villain after appearing in the first trailer, earlier debuted in Spider-Man 3. This makes the villain the first one to be reused by Marvel Studios in the MCU.

Chameleon

Earlier in 2018, Numan Acar was reported to join the cast of Far From Home as “Dimitri.” In comics books, Dimitri is well known by the name of Chameleon.

The Chameleon is a master of disguise who uses his skills for international espionage. He’s crossed paths with Spider-Man many times, and on occasion has even kidnapped and replaced Peter Parker.

Vulture

The relationship between Spider-Man and the Vulture is a fascinating one; Vulture knows the web-slinger’s secret identity, but he also respects Peter for saving his daughter’s life. Michael Keaton’s Vulture was the highlight of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Rumors of his casting were shot down by director Jon Watts, who said plainly that “Keaton is not in the movie.”

The Scorpion

Michael Mando has played the role of Scorpion in the Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Spider-Man: Homecoming’s post-credits scene saw Scorpion attempt to get Vulture to reveal Spider-Man’s secret identity; it was clear Gargan hoped to get his revenge on Spider-Man.

However, during Screen Rant’s visit to the set of Spider-Man: Far From Home, producer Eric Carroll, says, “He is not in this movie. Nor is Michael Mando playing him.”

The Prowler

We saw Donald Glover playing the character of “Prowler” in Spider-Man: Homecoming. He’s particularly important given that he’s the uncle of Miles Morales, a.k.a. the Ultimate Spider-Man.

Unfortunately for Glover fans, it was confirmed during Screen Rant’s set visit that neither Aaron Davis nor his villain alter-ego will be in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

The Tinkerer

Michael Chernus played the Tinkerer in Spider-Man: Homecoming and his character is still out there, potentially serving as a source of advanced technology for the film’s villains. However, there’s no evidence to suggest that the Tinkerer will be in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Shocker

Played by Bokeem Woodbine, Herman Schultz inherited the Shocker gauntlets over the course of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

He even managed to get the drop on Spider-Man in one notable scene. Since the Vulture won’t be appearing in Spider-Man: Far From Home. It’s safe to assume that Shocker won’t be in the sequel.

Spider-man Venom

Kevin Feige Says He’s Interested In A Spider-Man And Venom Crossover

Spider-Man’s entry to Marvel was a great step, but he comes with a lot of studio baggage with him.

As we know Marvel Studios have the rights of the Spider-Man character, use him in the non-Spider-Man movie and the Sony enjoys the profits from revitalized Spider-Man franchise.

Fiege is interested in Venom.

Sony Pictures has found financial success in sharing the Venom and Spider-Man with Disney in order for the character to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Venom crossover is just speculations by fans and not an official confirmation from MCU.

Kevin Feige was asked about the crossover of the two characters at the Spider-Man: Far From Home junket.

“I think probably it’s up to Sony,” says Feige. Sony has both those characters and, has Venom in their world. I don’t know what their plans are for another Venom or if they’re doing that. But it seems likely at some point.”

Sony’s “Venom” hit screens last year was released in theaters October 2018 and became a worldwide box office sensation. The film grossed $855 million globally despite poor reviews from film critics.

At the beginning of 2019, Sony made some announcement regarding the future projects and told that they are working on a sequel scripted by Kelly Marcel.

We’ll be seeing Tom Hardy reprising the role of Venom and Woody Harrelson making comeback after debuting in post-credit scenes of “Venom”. But the news of making the sequel of Venom is under wraps from Sony.

Venom- Spider-Man Crossover

The buzz around the filming of a  joint Venom and Spider-Man movie is in the news since Sony decided to go with a PG-13 cut of the Tom Hardy tentpole.

As with the “Venom”, Sony was not interested to proceed with R-rated because it might have closed the doors for the character to join MCU and Spider-Man movies.

It was only a few years ago that Marvel and Sony managed to reach a deal that would see Sony “lend” Spider-Man to Marvel, resulting in Spider-Man: Homecoming and also allowing the character to appear in other MCU movies.

It is unclear how they might fold Venom into the MCU or what kind of licensing deal they would need, but we’re sure that many would be interested in seeing both characters on the screen together again.

Tom Holland has been a part of two solo Marvel movies: 2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and this summer’s “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” It looks like it was a Fiege’s play in making “Venom” PG-13 as he seems interested in exploring if Sony approves.

Sony began sharing the “Spider-Man” character staring with “Homecoming,” which made $880 million worldwide. Spider-Man: Far From Home will hit theaters coming July 2.

Bringing the hugely profitable “Venom” and “Spider-Man” franchises together would appear to be a no-brainer for financial success.

The Infinity Saga events were one of the most heartbreaking moments in Marvel.

Tom Holland recently had an interview where he talked about the importance of Robert Downey’s character in his life.

“RDJ (Downey Jr) means so much to me. He is such a role model for me when I was a kid and before I’d met him.

And then to get a chance to work with him and to get to know him was really a dream come true. He holds a special place in my life like Mr. Stark does in Spider-Man’s journey,”  

He added that Robert Downey Jr. inspires him to work hard and be humble.

“I love Robert. It’s kind of reassuring for a young actor like me to meet someone who’s at the top of the game. But he is pretty professional, kind and hardworking. He is just a really good guy. So for me, it was a really wonderful experience,” he added.

Far From Home, which is Holland’s second stand-alone as the Marvel superhero, is set post the events of Endgame.

The actor said the film is about Parker’s struggle to move on from Stark’s death and the responsibilities which comes with being an Avenger.

Chris Hemsworth Explains How He Helped Tom Holland Get Spider-Man Role

We know that Marvel hasn’t given a fair chance to Thor and Spider-Man to share screens, but we do know that both stars are friends off-screen.

It was revealed that the 35-year-old has made a ‘phone call’ in hopes that he could help his pal become the next Peter Parker.

Chris Hemsworth reveals how he helped Tom Holland

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Hemsworth revealed that he did all he could to help him once and future costar.

“I mean, look, we worked on In the Heart of the Sea together, obviously, then through Avengers and as they were casting him for Spider-Man, I did what I could do and made a call and said he’s one of the most talented people, I’ve worked with and has such a big heart and appreciation,” Hemsworth said. “I don’t know, we have a great friendship, it’s a good mutual respect.”

Holland made his debut as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the MCU in Captain America: Civil War back in 2016.

The British actor’s performances in The Impossible, Wolf Hall, and In the Heart of the Sea impressed the studios and producers and secured him the role of Peter Parker in the highest-grossing film of 2016.

Holland became also the youngest actor to play a title role in the MCU.

They both were recently featured interviewing each other and proved a strong bond exists between the two.

Announcing the news on Twitter, Chris told his fans that he ‘sat down with competition winner @TomHolland1996 in Bali’.

‘So great to see the look on his face when he got to meet his hero,’ the Avengers actor added. And they didn’t stop with the roasting.

Tom is it? Tom Hiddleston?’ mocked Chris, before asking why Thor wasn’t in Far From Home.

‘It was for the front running Avengers in this one,’ Tom explained before adding: ‘Who is going to take up RDJ’s spot?’

‘Yeah, that’s why I asked where Thor was…’ scoffed Chris.

Thor and Chris Hemsworth’s friendship

Tom, who’s renowned for slipping spoilers left, right and center, recently posted a behind the scenes video of one of the most devastating scenes of Endgame.

It turns out the cast were led to believe they were filming a wedding, but despite the film being released in late April he admitted he was nervous about sharing his clips due to his reputation.

He wrote: ‘I don’t know why I’m so stressed posting this. The movie is already out. I guess when Barry [Curtis] said no cameras we all heard bring your cameras.’

That friendship forged in Hemsworth’s 2015 film allowed Holland to act opposite him in his first Marvel film, 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Holland returned for his own standalone film Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2017, as well as Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. He’s ready to hit theaters with Spider-Man Far From Home next month.
