Now that we know the title of the next Spidey movie, Spider-Man: Far From Home, fans have already started to dissect what it could mean for the upcoming sequel. 

After spoiler extraordinaire Tom Holland revealed the title in an Instagram video yesterday, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has officially confirmed not only the title, but that it has multiple meanings. Just don't expect him to go into specifics about it. 

"I won't say what the meanings are, but we enjoy that title because, like Homecoming, it is full of alternate meaning," Feige said in an interview with CinemaBlend. "And we liked continuing the 'Home' thing, with the little Spidey symbol in the 'Home.'"

Similarly, the title for last year's Spider-Man: Homecoming worked on a couple levels. First, the movie returned the character of Peter Parker to his high school roots. Second, it was the wall-crawler's official solo outing after returning to the MCU, following his appearance in 2016's Civil War

Holland's reveal also confirms what we've known about the sequel for the last couple months, namely that it will split Spidey's time between New York City and, according to Feige, "other parts of the globe."

Recently, Feige had confirmed that the sequel, which is currently in production, was filming in Atlanta as well as London. This doesn't necessarily mean that London will be a setting for the sequel, as it could just be a stand-in for another city. But the last time we saw Spider-Man, he was facing off with Thanos on his homeworld of Titan in Infinity War. So, all considering, he's probably happy to be back anywhere on his home planet. And also, you know, alive. 

Spider-Man: Far From Home will kick off the MCU's Phase 4 when it hits theaters on July 5, 2019.
