Once again, Tom Holland “leaks” something from one of his movies, as he revealed the title for the upcoming highly-anticipated sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. The aforementioned sequel is officially called Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Some fans are confused as to why it is called that. The president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, not only confirmed the Far From Home title, but gave us a little insight, although not much, into why the title was chosen.

Feige said the following about the title’s multiple meanings:

“[It’s] similar [to Spider-Man: Homecoming]. I won’t say what the meanings are, but we enjoy that title because, like Homecoming, it is full of alternate meaning. And we liked continuing the ‘Home’ thing, with the little Spidey symbol in the ‘Home.’”

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is available on Blu-ray and Digital, while Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into theaters on July 5th, 2019.
