Spider-Man: Homecoming Sequel Targets June Start Date

Tom Holland in Spider-Man Homecoming

The production start date for the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel has seemingly been revealed -- the film will reportedly go into production this June. The sequel will then kick off the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4 when it premieres in the summer of 2019.

Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 will have the dubious honor of establishing the MCU’s tone post-Avengers: Infinity War, which looks to have reality-bending ramifications for the long-running cinematic universe’s continuity. Infinity War is rumored to feature a sizable superhero body count, so it’s unclear exactly what the MCU will look like after Thanos is done trashing Earth with his Infinity Stone-powered gauntlet.

The news comes courtesy of Omega Underground, which also revealed that Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts’ might be returning to Berlin, Germany for the sequel. Berlin has played a significant role in Spider-Man’s story. Edward Leeds, the Hobgoblin, met his end in the city. Hobgoblin hasn’t been confirmed for the film, but that hasn't kept fans from their usual rampant speculation. Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is expected to begin filming on June 1 and conclude in September.

Debuting in theaters in 2019, the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is directed by Jon Watts and, barring any catastrophes in Infinity War, will star Tom Holland as Peter Parker.
