Spider-Man: Far from Home will hit theaters next summer, but we don’t need to wait that long to see Tom Holland in action. The actor made an appearance last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live where he showed off his new Spider-Man costume and a bit of acrobatic skill, but only after he got his mask back from somebody who’d run off with it. Check it out.
The clip starts out with Jimmy Kimmel’s frequent comedy source Guillermo coming out on stage to the music of the classic animated Spider-man theme. He’s wearing a Spider-Man mask and making “pew pew” noises because apparently nobody ever taught him that “pew pew” is the noise a Star Wars blaster makes. Web shooters make a “thwip” sound. Doesn’t everybody know that?
Next, we see “somebody” come out in a full Spider-Man costume, save a traffic cone on his head. It’s not long before the Spider-Man in question is revealed to be Tom Holland himself. He’s sporting the Spider-Man costume that we’ve seen in set images, both those official and those leaked. It trades in the more traditional red and blue costume for a red and black outfit. The suit looks amazing. Considering this is likely to be the only real look at the suit in action until the first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home hits, it’s a great way to show it off, and since images of the suit had leaked anyway, there’s no reason not to do it.
After Tom Holland officially plugs Spider-Man: Far From Home on Jimmy Kimmel Live the host asks how the new movie will work considering Spider-Man’s fate in Avengers: Infinity War. This leads Holland to beat a hasty retreat to avoid answering the question. Kimmel asks if the movie is a prequel, and as far as we know that’s not the case, but exactly what the deal is, we don’t really know.
It’s not even clear why Spider-Man will have the new costume in the first place. Between the previous Spider-Man: Homecoming outfit and the Avengers: Infinity War Iron Spider costume, Peter Parker has plenty of stuff to choose from. Unless whatever brings Spider-Man back from “the snap” brings him back without his clothes. Of course, if that happens there may end up being a lot of naked people at the end of Avengers 4.
The clip ends as Tom Holland flips his way off stage, showing off the natural acrobatic skill that helped him land the role of Spider-man in the first place.
While Tom Holland says he has to get back to the set, all indications are that principal photography on Spider-Man: Far From Home has officially wrapped. There will almost certainly be reshoots at some point, but the heavy lifting is done. Spider-Man: Far From Home is set for release July 5 2019.
