The next Spider-Man movie has started filming and star Tom Holland has shared the first, albeit cheeky, photo from the set of him reprising the role of Spider-Man.
In what appears to be the first photos from the set of the third Spider-Man movie, Holland is seen wearing his black and red suit from Spider-Man: Far From Home. Over his Spider-Man mask, however, he’s wearing another mask.
“Wear a mask, I’m wearing two,” Holland writes in the Instagram captions.
A third Spider-Man movie was almost in doubt after Sony and Disney failed to reach an initial agreement that would see Tom Holland’s web-slinger continue to be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But a deal was ultimately reached and a new Spider-Man movie is planned to be released on December 17, 2021.
While plots are under wraps, Sony announced that Jamie Foxx will reprise his role as Electro for the third film. Foxx was last seen portraying the character in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 which was not part of the MCU and instead part of a film series were Andrew Garfield played Spider-Man.
Doctor Strange, played by MCU’s Benedict Cumberbatch, is also slated to appear in the film as a mentor to Peter. The appearance of Strange and Electro has fueled speculation that the third Spider-Man movie will tackle the spider-verse in some way.
No word on when the Spider-Man 3 will wrap filming, but Sony has allegedly said a first look will arrive sometime in December. Though considering filming just started it’s unclear how in-depth the first look will be.
