Digital Cover Shoot: 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'
Watch Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Holland interview each other at EW's first ever digital cover shoot.
Holland shared the update in a series of videos posted to his Instagram Story this weekend that documented his travel. The actor had started filming a different blockbuster movie for Sony Pictures, the movie adaptation of Uncharted, back in July. A first look at Holland as videogame character Nathan Drake arrived just last week, and the studio is keeping him busy by sending him next to tackle Spider-Man.
Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his role of Doctor Strange alongside Holland in this next joint production between Sony and Disney's Marvel Studios—something that was worked out by both studios late last year. In the absence of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Strange will take on a mentor-like presence for Holland's Peter Parker.
Far From Home saw Holland's web-slinger face off against Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), who revealed the teen hero's secret identity to the public and painted him as a villain. J.K. Simmons, who played cranky Daily Bugle boss J. Jonah Jameson in the Tobey Maguire era of Spidey pics, reprised the character briefly for a Far From Home post-credits scene. The presence of Jameson, the reality-warping Strange, and (the reported presence of) Electro imply some kind of multi-verse. Almost like a... Spider-verse.
The Spider-Man films also feature newly minted Emmy winner Zendaya as M.J., Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and Jacob Batalon as Pete's bff Ned. Jon Watts returns to direct the third installment after helming Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home.
