Marvel Studios is currently shooting Captain Marvel, and reports have come out that the movie will end production in two weeks. Perfect timing, as Spider-Man: Far from Home is also set to begin shooting early July.
This was confirmed by Kevin Feige, who told Collider that Far from Home will start rolling cameras in a few weeks. After the title reveal from Tom Holland yesterday, we should expect regular updates on the film moving forward.
Feige has also given us a small update on where Peter Parker is in the story and how he finds himself “far from home.” He tells io9:
“Well, when does that movie take place? We know it’s the summer. I think it’s summer vacation. I think he’s going to Europe with his friends. I don’t know what summer… I mean, I do know [but you don’t].”
All this time, everyone guessed that the movie would have Peter and a few friends becoming exchange students abroad. However, no one was able to guess that he would be in Europe on vacation. Of course, he could still be there for academic purposes, so him being an exchange student isn’t entirely wrong.
With the earlier Spider-Man films only brushing on Peter Parker’s school life, Marvel Studios and Sony plan to follow Tom Holland’s Spider-journey as a young man. The film could probably even end with his graduation from high school. I’m not entirely opposed, but I would still love to see Peter finding a job or attending college. How else is he going to meet J. Jonah Jameson?
