Notoriously famous for not being able to keep secrets when it comes to Marvel films, Tom Holland has today seemingly revealed the title of the much-awaited sequel to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.
In an Instagram video apologising for the lack of updates on the Homecoming follow-up at Seattle’s Ace Comic-Con where he is currently making a guest appearance, Holland showed an iPad which apparently contained the script for the new film, with the title appearing on the screen as Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Assuming that he’s not trolling the entire Internet, the Far From Home moniker does fit the the rumoured plot of the film, which would see Spider-Man journeying from New York to London, where Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed parts of the film will be set, in addition to other locations around the globe.
Today’s ‘reveal’ isn’t the first time Tom has flown dangerously close to the wire with Marvel, who are known for the extreme lengths they go to keep their films’ plots under wraps. Back in November, he revealed a poster for Avengers: Infinity War on Instagram which had been sent to him via his co-star Mark Ruffalo, as well as accidentally spoiling the ending of the same film to a packed cinema after he thought they’d already seen the film prior to him making a special appearance at the screening. His notoriety for leaking secrets has also inspired a mash-up video of Doctor Strange and Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch covering for Holland during interviews in the press tour of Infinity War:
