The cat’s out of the bag. Or, it was a few days back, when Tom Holland confirmed the title of the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming as being Spider-Man: Far From Home. It’s yet another play on the word home and that’s certainly no coincidence. Later on, Cinema Blend was able to catch-up with Marvel Studios head-honcho Kevin Feige who explained the significance of the title while hinting at other potential meanings.
[It’s] similar [to Spider-Man: Homecoming]. I won’t say what the meanings are, but we enjoy that title because, like Homecoming, it is full of alternate meaning. And we liked continuing the ‘Home’ thing, with the little Spidey symbol in the ‘Home.’
It goes without saying then that the third movie in the franchise should also have home in its subtitle. Titles like Spider-Man: Home Sweet Home are already being speculated by fans although it’ll be a few years before we learn about that officially. For now, we can only guess what the title of Homecoming 2 could hint at.
For starters, there’s the literal interpretation. According to sources, Far From Home will see Spidey on a globe-trotting adventure confronting the enigmatic Mysterio (for whom Jake Gyllenhall is being tapped). His adventures will take him to Europe and London as he’s largely left on his own to battle the masked villain.
Then, there’s the other implication of Far From Home not really referring to Spider-Man but to his mentor, Tony Stark. There’s rampant speculation that Tony Stark might end up losing his life in the events of Avengers 4. Either that, or he could possibly end up in an alternate dimension of some sort, far away from home.
Finally, there’s the off-chance that Spider-Man could end up being transported to the cosmos during or after the events of the movie setting the stage for his return to earth. Don’t count on that one though, that’s just us working our brains out.
So what do you think? What does far from home imply? Sound off in the comments below with your own interpretations and spins on the title.
