Following their return in The Avengers: Infinity War post-credit scene, both Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders will be back for Spider-Man: Far From Home, the sequel to last year's film that rebooted the Wall Crawler under Marvel Studios starring Tom Holland.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will be the fifth collaboration between Sony and Marvel Studios, which worked out a deal that allowed Spider-Man to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe while also leaving the character and his immediate world under the Sony Pictures umbrella. Spider-Man's sequel also confirms that Peter Parker did not die as shown towards the end of Infinity War.
Now that Avengers: Infinity War has been released digitally, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have used the commentary track to expand upon the creative choices made in the film. As for the Spidey sequel, it would appear that we're looking at a stacked cast indeed.
At the time, we believed it might have something to do with Captain Marvel reshoots, since we know for a fact Jackson is in that-but, obviously, now we know that's not the case. Both the character were last seen in the post-credits scene, dismantling into ashes like Spider-Man, of the summer blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War. The film will see Peter Parker leave NY, heading to London in a film that will reflect the global aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.
This will be the first time Nick Fury and Maria Hill have encountered Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Certainly a hint that Avengers 4 will change the course of the narrative. If that theory holds, it'll make three MCU films in the span of about four months for Jackson, at a time when we'd previously thought his time with Marvel might be winding down. The film is also the Marvel debut of Jake Gyllenhaal, who will play the big bad villain, Mysterio in the film.
Jackson is ready to swing with Spidey. Far From Home is scheduled to hit theaters in July 2019 with the fourth Avengers movie preceding it in April 2019.
