Tom Holland is officially back shooting the sequel to 'Spiderman: Homecoming', which will be released in July 2019. Here's everything we know so far, including the cast, release date and leaked footage from the set.

Your friendly neighbourhood legend, Tom Holland has already finished filmed his role in Avengers 4 (it was shot back to back with Infinity War) but it looks like we're not going to have wait for very long at all before he suits up and heads off on another adventure as Spiderman.

Filming on Spiderman: Far From Home has begun and Holland has been spotted in various parts of London shooting scenes for the upcoming movie, including a very emotional one, alone, on top of a building.

When will Far From Home be released?

Spiderman: Far From Home will be released in the US on July 5, 2019. That's just a few months after Avengers 4.

What is the title of the movie?

The sequel will be called Spiderman: Far From Home, which was revealed in a "leaked" Instagram video from Tom Holland. The devil works hard but the Marvel marketing team work harder.

Who is in Far From Home? Who will be reprising their roles?

Well, Tom Holland is back on board as Peter Parker, of course. Zendaya and Jacob Batalon are also set to be reprising their roles of Michelle and Ned respectively. Marisa Tomei will also return as Aunt May and Michael Keaton's Vulture will be back to wreak more havoc.

It's also been heavily rumoured that Jake Gyllenhaal will be joining the cast as the villainous Mysterio.

There's also been rumours that casting for a new female lead has begun. Fans seem to think that she might be a new take on Gwen Stacy who Peter will meet on his European travels. Other theories suggest that we'll finally get to meet Jessica Drew aka Spider-woman.

What will happen in Far From Home?

After surviving whatever events happen in Avengers 4, Peter will embark on a summer holiday around Europe. It's already been confirmed that the movie will take place in several different locations and production began shooting in London at the beginning of July.

Speaking to io9, Marvel boss Kevin Feige said: "We start filming early July. 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."

"The way Civil War and the fact that he 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."

Whether or not Peter will travel back into space remains to be seen.

It also looks like Peter might have to face off against two villains in the sequel as well, with both Vulture and Mysterio making appearances.

When will Far From Home take place?

You'll remember how Homecoming picked up right after Civil War? Well... it's already been confirmed by Sony producer Amy Pascal that Spiderman: Far From Home will pick up right AFTER Avengers 4 (or Avengers: End Game, if you believe the recent news).

And that obviously means that Peter will be coming "back to life" at some point during Avengers 4. It's not yet known how he'll go from ash to a fully fledged human again.

Will there be any other Avengers in Far From Home?

There's a possibility that other Avengers might appear in the film but it all depends on what happens at the end of Avengers 4. It's already been all but confirmed that there will be some permanent deaths in the fourth Avengers movie judging by the intense synopsis of the film.

Tom Holland has already been spotted filming an emotional scene on location in London - could he be upset about the potential death of someone close to him? Sayyyyy, his mentor Tony Stark perhaps?

Has the trailer for Far From Home been released yet?

Nope. Not yet! Production has only just started on the sequel so it looks like we'll be waiting for quite a while. Marvel also have two more films to promote before Spiderman: Far From Home so we'll likely see our first teaser after the Captain Marvel trailer and the trailer for Avengers 4, which will arrive toward the end of the year.
