Other than the fact that the untitled Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel occurs minutes after the events of the untitled Avengers 4, not much is known regarding the webbed-Avenger’s next solo adventure. Some rumors have been revealed by a supposedly “trustworthy” source on Reddit. Like any rumor though, take these with a giant grain of salt.
POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD!
Mysterio, an international thief and master of illusion, is on the hunt to steal one of Tony Stark’s latest groundbreaking inventions. This of course, leads to Spidey getting involved. The classic fishbowl helmet will be included, but he will not wear it throughout the movie.
Peter and his friends are in London for a majority of the film. They’re attending a conference sponsored by Stark Industries. Jessica Drew has a role as an MI6 agent. Drew is not Spider-Woman and doesn’t have any powers. She reluctantly teams up with Spider-Man to stop the main villain, Mysterio.
MJ, Ned, Liz, Flash and Aunt May return, along with an appearance by Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts. As expected, the Midtown students and staff from Homecoming also appear.
A mysterious character who hired Mysterio to steal the Stark tech, also hires Scorpion and they try to get Vulture to give them Spider-Man’s identity. This unknown character is apparently a major villain from the comics and will be prominent in the Spider-Man movies going forward. Casting won’t be officially announced, however, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures are searching for A-list actors.
Alistair Smythe is also introduced as a technology prodigy and new student that Peter develops a rivalry with. Smythe tries to turn Peter’s friends against him and manipulates situations. Spencer Smythe, Alistair’s father, is employed by Stark Industries.
With all that being said, the reported title of the webhead’s movie, as of right now, is Spider-Man: Field Trip.

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 the sequel hits theaters on July 5th, 2019.
