While Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters this weekend, many have begun to already turn their attention to the film's sequel.
At this point, we don't know a whole lot about the upcoming Marvel Studios film, aside from the fact that it will be set minutes after Avengers 4, will continue to feature the title character's high school adventures, and will feature an Iron Man-like cameo from another Marvel Cinematic Universe character. But according to Peter Parker himself, Tom Holland, the general themes of the sequel are already beginning to be discussed.
"I will be on Spider-Man 2 about mid-July next year." Holland explained to Collider. "I think the most interesting thing about a young man's life is his journey from being a boy to a man, and imagine seeing that journey while having superpowers. That's something I know I'm definitely excited to explore. I know Kevin [Feige] and the rest of the team are very excited to explore."
With Homecoming pitting the web-slinger against Adrian Toomes/The Vulture (Michael Keaton), many are wondering which antagonist Spider-Man will face off against in the sequel. Holland's response was rather vague, hinting that fans need to stay tuned on the villain front.
"Villains are obviously the big thing at the moment, but we'll have to wait and see who we choose. Who they choose."
You can find the official synopsis for Homecoming below, which has a 4.13 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with theAvengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
