While the sequel to Spider-Man Homecoming has been under wraps so tight we don’t even know for sure what actors decided NOT to be in it, some new information has broken from the Marvel higher-ups about the official start of a post-Thanos MCU.
Phase 4 will begin with the untitled Homecoming sequel - and not in Peter Parker’s typical ‘hood - which io9 confirmed with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. The film won’t be happening entirely within the confines of Queens, or even New York. “We start filming early July,” Feige told the outlet. “We film in London. We shot first film in Atlanta. And we shoot a lot of films in London but there’s another reason we’re shooting in London which is, yes, Spidey, of course, will spend some time in New York, but he’ll spend some time in other parts of the globe.”
So, though there aren’t really any more details about why or where Spidey will be slinging, it’s not hard to imagine the webhead needing to grow beyond the borders of his hometown if he truly does want to be more involved with the Avengers - in both Infinity War and Avengers 4.
Feige continued by saying that, “The way Civil War and the fact that [Spider-Man] went to Leipzig Airport and then has to go back to school, informed Homecoming, the two Avengers films that precede [the sequel] will greatly inform, probably even more so, the next movie.”
After Infinity War drops, we’ll likely have a bit better idea about the status of Earth’s heroes and their motives where it comes to geography. There’s plenty of time to unravel this mystery before the untitled Spider-Man Homecoming sequel opens on July 5, 2019.
