Spider-Man: Homecoming fans are probably impatiently waiting for updates on the upcoming sequel to Peter Parker’s first solo Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Now fans may have a piece of information to get excited about the upcoming sequel. Thanks to a new report, we now have an idea about when and where the shooting of the sequel will take place.
According to Omega Underground, filming for the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is set to begin in June in Atlanta with a wrap date sometime in the fall/winter of 2018 -- likely between October and December. The film is likely to see the return of director John Watts as well as screenwriters Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna and is presently slated for release on July 5, 2019.
While no other details on the movie have been released, the film is expected to be the first installment of the MCU’s Phase 4 following the Avengers: The Infinity War movie, which also filmed in Georgia. The recently released Avengers: Infinity War trailer shows the arrival of Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet and Avengers 4 said to be an end of the beginning for the MCU - possibly even with the deaths of some of the current characters. The Spider-Man sequel will also likely somewhat deal with the Avengers 4 aftermath for Tom Holland’s Peter Parker.
The new shooting schedule also lines up with other Sony Marvel projects. Venom, with Tom Hardy in the lead role, is expected to finish shooting in Atlanta this February 2018; While Gina Prince-Bythewood's Silver & Black is set to begin filming after that. Venom is scheduled in theaters October 5, 2018, with Silver & Black expected February 8, 2019.What do you think? Discuss this story with fellow Project Casting fans on Facebook.
