Spider-Man: Far From Home is only about a year away. So now it's time to start speculating.
What we know so far:
- Tom Holland is returning.
- Mysterio will be the main villain, and Marvel wants Jake Gyllenhaal to play him.
- The movie will "span the globe" and take place partially in London.
- Ned Leeds, Aunt May, MJ and Mr. Delmar will be back.
- Michael Keaton will return as Vulture.
- Iron Man won't be back.
Now, without further ado, let's get down to what may or may not happen in this sequel.
Nick Fury will appear
Samuel L. Jackson has been spotted on set, and may have just teased his appearance in this movie. While it could be a flashback or a hologram, Fury could certainly appear, since Iron Man won't be back.
Captain Marvel will take Iron Man's place
According to Kevin Feige, Brie Larson's Captain Marvel will "lead the MCU going forward". Since that was Iron Man's duty, it makes a lot of sense Captain Marvel could take his place as Peter Parker's mentor in Far From Home.
Mr. Delmar is more than just a side character
Since Spider-Man: Far From Home will span the globe, it's surprising Mr. Delmar, the bodega owner, will be in it. It's possible he's something more than just a sandwich guy. My theory is that he could be an undercover SHIELD agent, or maybe even a villain in disguise.
A casting call for a "femme fatale" as the female lead for the movie has been issued. In addition to this, possible plot leaks have pointed to Jessica Drew's inclusion in the movie. She'd be a great fit!
Mysterio and Vulture team-up
If Vulture is returning, chances are he'll team up with Mysterio.
This is extremely unlikely, due to the film, but even if they can't merge the character with the MCU, they can still introduce their own version of the character.
Mysterio's boss is either Norman Osborn or Doctor Octopus
Mysterio is a good villain, but I don't see him working alone. Potential plot leaks have pointed to Mysterio working for someone. If so, it should be a classic villain like Norman Osborn or Doctor Octopus.
Scorpion was set up in the post-credits scene of Homecoming, and I could see Mac Gargan becoming one of Spidey's most frightening villains in this sequel, especially if Vulture returns.
Donald Glover will return as the Prowler
Glover had a brief role as Aaron Davis in Homecoming. In the Ultimate Comics universe, Davis is the prowler, and his nephew is Miles Morales. It'd be cool if he returned as the thieving antihero in the sequel.
It'll set up a "Sinister Six" team-up
The Sinister Six haven't been seen in a movie, so the MCU should totally bring them in, whether it's for Spider-Man 3 or a Sinister Six solo movie. It could fuse the MCU and Sonyverse.
A Miles Morales Cameo
While I wouldn't bet on the kid actually becoming a "Spider" in the movie, I would bet on a cameo as just a normal kid.
So, what do you guys think? Do you want these theories to come true? Comment!
