‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Sequel to Shoot in Prague this Summer
Last summer, the highly-anticipated return of Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Spider-Man: Homecoming was met with rave reviews by both critics and audiences.
The success of the Marvel movie, directed by Jon Watts and starring Tom Holland as Peter Parker, did not exactly come as a surprise. Six months earlier, the studio had already greenlit a sequel.
This week, the latest issue of Production Weekly has revealed filming dates and locations for that sequel, which has yet to receive an official title.
The Spider-Man sequel, again set to be directed by Watts with Holland starring, will begin shooting on May 19, and production will wrap up in September. Filming locations include New York, London, Venice... and Prague. Previous reports had also listed Berlin as a filming location.
Details about the latest production, or what scenes might be filmed in Prague and when, are yet to be known.
Spider-Man: Homecoming left off with high-schooler Peter Parker turning down a job offer from The Avengers’ Tony Stark in order to stay in school in New York. The Spider-Man character will also be featured in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, scheduled for release next month (April 27), with a sequel to that film due in May 2019.
Given the locations in London, Venice, and Prague, and the previous Berlin report, one might infer that the story of the Spider-Man sequel involves Peter Parker, now a high school junior, studying abroad in Europe.
According to some reports, Marvel and casting director Sarah Finn have been auditioning for a European actress in her 20s to play a “femme fatale.”
In December, audition tapes surfaced online of European actresses reading for the part of Gwen Stacy, a major recurring character in the comic books, though their authenticity was unverified.
According to the Production Weekly roundup, the Spider-Man sequel will be filming under the fake working titles of “The Fall of George” and “Bosco”, both references to Seinfeld.
The untitled sequel is set for release on July 5, 2019.
