‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Adds Numan Acar

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Adds Numan Acar:

EXCLUSIVE: Turkish-born actor Numan Acar has come aboard Sony/Marvel’s Spider-Man sequel, now titled Spider-Man: Far From Home, which has Tom Holland reprising his role as the teenage webslinger. Not much is known about Acar’s role, other than his character’s name is Dimitri. Sony declined to comment. He joins new castmember J.B. Smooth and potentially Jake Gyllenhaal, who is in talks to play the big baddie Mysterio.

Michael Keaton, Zendaya, and Marisa Tomei are also expected to return. Jon Watts is directing once again, from a script by Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are producing the pic, which has a release date set for July 5, 2019.

This is the second big-budget feature that Acar has landed after being cast in Disney’s live-action Aladdin adaptation, also due out next year. He recently appeared in Nicolai Fuglsig’s 12 Strong, Terry George’s The Promise, and with Diane Kruger in the Golden Globe-winning film In The Fade.

He is repped by D2 Management.

J.B. Smoove Joins ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’:

EXCLUSIVE: Sony Pictures has set J.B. Smoove to star in Spider-Man: Far from Home, sources said. Sony would not comment and nobody would divulge Smoove’s role but I’m told it is a lead in the ensemble. So far, he’s the first new cast member to be set beyond Jake Gyllenhaal, who is expected to play the villain Mysterio. Jon Watts is directing, and Tom Holland returns as the webslinger, with Michael Keaton, Zendaya and Marisa Tomei expected to reprise. The film is dated for July 5, 2019. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are producing.

Smoove will shoot his role before returning to his regular role in Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. He’s repped by UTA, Authentic’s Rick Dorfman and attorney Roger Pliakas.

Spider-Man Homecoming grossed $334.2 million domestically and $880.1 million worldwide after it bowed in July 2017.

Peter: You just announced Spider-Man: Far From Home, the title.

Peter: I’ve heard.

Kevin: With him and Ruffalo.

Peter: Yeah.

Kevin: Like ha-ha-ha, what did you do?

Peter: I was wondering since this is gonna take place mostly in London or you’ve insinuated that large–

Kevin: Shooting in London.

Peter: But there are scenes in London.

Kevin: Yes.

Peter: And you’ve also said in the past that the plan for these Spider-Man movies is to kind of have another Marvel cameo in each one kind of like you did with Tony Stark.

Kevin: I did?

Peter: Ha, I thought you did in some older interview.

Kevin: It’s in the MCU so yeah.

Peter: I’m wondering ’cause London there is a sanctum there.  Is Doctor Strange gonna be the one in this one?

Peter: No?

Kevin: I could be coy about it but no.

Peter: (shocked that he gave a direct response) Okay.

Kevin: I don’t wanna get people excited. But Benedict and Holland have liked the idea of working together.

New Spider-man movie: Filming to take place in Bishop’s Stortford:

Spider-man will be making himself at home in Bishop’s Stortford next week when filming begins on Marvel Studio’s latest superhero blockbuster.

Star Tom Holland is expected on set when Rose Line Productions UK Ltd crews start work on the feature inside two locations – one in South Street and the other in North Street – on Monday (July 2).

The 22-year-old Londoner is reprising his role as web-slinger Peter Parker in June 2017’s Spider-man: Homecoming for Spider-man: Far From Home, which will be released in July 2019.

Holland has also appeared as Spidey in Captain America: Civil War and, most recently, Avengers: Infinity War. He will also play the radioactive hero in the fourth, as yet untitled Avengers film.

The movie’s working title is “Bosco”, and last week businesses and residents in the town centre were warned of potential disruption “for a number of days” in order to prepare and then reinstate the locations for the feature.

The new Spider-man film will also star Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes/Vulture, Jacob Batalon as Ned, Zendaya as Michelle Jones, Marisa Tomei as May Parker and heart-throb Jake Gyllenhaal rumoured to be cast as villain Mysterio. It is being directed by Jon Watts, who was at the helm of Homecoming.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Sequel Begins Filming…

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Sequel Begins Filming in Two Weeks:

While Marvel Studios may be playing tight-lipped about its upcoming projects, we know for sure that Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is on its way—and soon. Star Tom Holland took to Instagram this weekend to reveal the sequel’s official title, Spider-Man: Far from Home, and now we know when, exactly, filming on the highly anticipated follow-up is set to begin.

Collider’s own Christina Radish recently spoke with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige during a 1:1 interview at the press day for Ant-Man and the Wasp, and during the course of their conversation Feige revealed that Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 filming begins in about two weeks, or “early next month.” That’s somewhat surprising as we haven’t heard too much casting news for the sequel, but all will no doubt be revealed in due time.

The Avengers 4 Trailers Are Going to Have a We…

The Avengers 4 Trailers Are Going to Have a Weird Marketing Problem:

Speaking of Holland, we then asked Feige about Spider-Man: Far From Home, the sequel to Homecoming, which will be released two months after Avengers 4. It has the same tricky issue, because Spider-Man was also snapped away by Thanos.

“Well, when does that movie take place?” Feige asked. “We know it’s the summer. I think it’s summer vacation. I think he’s going to Europe with his friends. I don’t know what summer… I mean, I do know [but you don’t].”

The suggestion that Far From Home could happen before Infinity War is a nice deflection, but ultimately is probably not true. What Feige forgot were his quotes from one year ago, when we spoke with him about Spider-Man: Homecoming:

“So much happens in [the third and fourth Avengers movies], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the MCU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker?” Feige told io9 last year. “So, coming out two months after Untitled Avengers, [that’s what] much of what the next Spider-Man film will be about.”

“It was purposefully done like [that],” Feige continued last year. “Like how the events of Captain America: Civil War impacted Peter as he was dropped off by Tony and expected to go back to continue his sophomore year, how the hell are the events of Infinity War and Untitled [Avengers] going to affect him as he, yes, goes back to his junior year?”

So, though Feige joked this week that Far From Home may not take place after the events of Infinity War, it almost certainly does. And that means we still don’t know how that film will be marketed. However, Tom Holland’s tongue-in-cheek title reveal may offer a clue. In the video, he said “I’m a little confused [about Spider-Man 2] because I died so I don’t really know how it comes into play.” Maybe Marvel will just treat the whole thing with a great big shoulder shrug. Or, maybe Feige’s suggestion of a different timeline is the answer—and nothing in the trailer will confirm when the movie takes place.

Before Far From Home, though, audiences will see Ant-Man and the Wasp next week, then Captain Marvel in March 2019, followed by Avengers 4 in May. Feige thinks marketing for Avengers 4 is likely to start sometime in the fall or winter–and when it happens, it seems like anyone who died in Infinity Warwill not be a part of it. Though, Feige did leave open the possibility that could change by saying he isn’t sure of how it’s all going down. “We are working with the greatest marketing team in the world with Disney so I’m anxious to see how they start to put [the marketing] together,” Feige said.

Marvel Studios President Opens Up About Post-‘Avengers 4’ Plans:

Speaking to ComicBook.com in an exclusive interview at a press event for the upcoming Ant-Man and The Wasp film, Feige opened up about whether or not the studio plans to build towards another Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 type of cinematic event and what else the future might entail. “It’s always one film at a time,” Feige is quick to point out.

“It’s one film at a time,” Feige said with the business slate on his mind. “Between Captain Marvel finishing in two weeks, Spider-Man starting in two weeks, Avengers 4 post getting underway right now, releasing this movie… That’s keeping us busy over the next year.”

Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio Confirmed For The N…

Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio Confirmed For The Next Spider-Man Movie:

It’s all fun and games, of course, but it seems Holland has already ‘spoiled’ the title of Marvel’s Homecoming sequel. It’ll seemingly release as Spider-Man: Far From Home come 2019, and when it does, it’ll pit our friendly neighborhood Web-Head against Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio, the classic Marvel villain known for his illusions and trickery, which push Parker’s spider-sense into overtime.

Or at least, that’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, who have now confirmed that Gyllenhaal has closed his deal to play Mysterio, with Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers on script duties.
