Kevin Feige has confirmed that the upcoming sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming will be called Spider-Man: Far From Home, and that the title will reveal multiple meanings.

A logo for the film has also been released, which shows a little Spider-Man head in place of the “o.”

The movie’s star, Tom Holland, revealed the title in an Instagram post from Ace Comic Con in Seattle. While apologizing that there will not be any new announcements about the film at the event, he held up his tablet with the title displayed on the screen.

Holland has been known to let information slip in the past, though in this case it seems to have been a purposeful reveal jokingly designed as an accident. (Warning that the video does spoil what happens in Avengers: Infinity War, however.)

Feige discussed the title in an interview with CinemaBlend, which was mostly to promote the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie Ant-Man and the Wasp.

“[It’s] similar [to Spider-Man: Homecoming],” he said. “I won’t say what the meanings are, but we enjoy that title because, like Homecoming, it is full of alternate meaning. And we liked continuing the ‘home’ thing, with the little Spidey symbol in the ‘home,'” he added.

A few meanings can be discerned from Homecoming: Spider-Man coming home after his overseas trip in Captain America: Civil War, the fact that his high school homecoming dance is a plot point, and on a meta level, the character returning to the Marvel Universe after a complicated legal situation with Sony.

Though we do not know a lot about Far From Home, one meaning is already apparent: it is primarily set in Europe, not New York, meaning that Spider-Man will indeed be away from his typical stomping grounds. Any other meanings in the title remain to be seen, however.

What we do know about the film: Jake Gyllenhaal will be playing the villain Mysterio, traditionally depicted as a stage magician who uses his special effects mastery for crimes. There is rumored to be some sort of femme fatale character whose identity is currently unknown.

Far From Home will be the first MCU film of Phase 4, coming out July 5, 2019. Meanwhile, we’re still waiting on a title for Avengers 4, coming out May 3, 2019.
