Tom Holland's latest Spider-Man: Far From Home set video could hint at new villain

Tom Holland is already making waves with the latest set video from the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home.

While Holland originally uploaded the video to his personal Instagram account to promote a Crowdrise campaign from non-profit charity organization The Brothers Trust (founded by Holland's parents Nikki and Dom Holland), eagle-eyed fans are already poring over the details spotted in the background — and whether or not they could allude to a surprise appearance from a new villain in the Spider-Man sequel.

While the video itself is captioned with a completely straight-faced quip about how Holland does all of his own stunts, we get to see first-hand that there are professionals ready to take the fall where Holland can't — and in this specific instance, the stunt appears to involve Peter Parker being knocked back by a giant wave.

Our heads are swimming with possibilities to consider about this water-logged sequence, and who exactly might be wielding H20 as their weapon. Could it be Hydro-Man, long-time Spider-Man villain, according to ComicBookMovie?

His origin story is definitively linked to the web-slinger, as Hydro-Man (aka Morris "Morrie" Bench) receives his powers after being accidentally knocked into the sea by Spider-Man — during the testing of a radiation device, of course. Given that backstory, we wouldn't blame Hydro-Man for wanting to get some wet revenge on the young superhero. We know that Jake Gyllenhaal has already been cast as the foggy-headed Mysterio, but since Spidey is definitely roaming outside his original Queens stomping grounds, it stands to reason that he could encounter any number of other secondary baddies in his travels abroad.

Of course, this speculation could all very well be a wash. We'll have to fish out the truth for ourselves one way or another when Spider-Man: Far From Home premieres on July 5, 2019.
