The next Spider-Man movie will be set outside of New York.

Filming on the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel gets underway in July and when it does, shooting will take place in London.

Why? Because Spider-Man is heading abroad!

Speaking to io9 about shooting the forthcoming movie, Marvel Studios’ President, Kevin Feige, said:

“We film in London. We shot the 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.”

So, why is Spidey leaving the familiar territory of New York for his next adventure?

Well, it seems that each time Peter Parker has a brush with the Avengers, it changes the way he experiences the world around him – i.e. Spider-Man metaphorically grows as a person. It would seem as though the team behind this next Spider-Man movie are keen to let Parker spread his wings, rather than tread familiar ground and this means he can’t just go back to being the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man of before.

Feige said:

“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.”

The as-yet-untitled Spidey sequel is set for release in July 2019, shortly after the release of the also as-yet-untitled Avengers 4. Marvel Studios is once again co-producing the Spider-Man sequel alongside Sony Pictures.
