Sony Pictures unveils an official logo for the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home. The studio has made excellent use of their partnership with Marvel Studios, as Peter Parker has appeared in three MCU films so far. That includes 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming, which was his first solo outing in the franchise. That movie was a hit on all fronts, earning widespread critical acclaim and $880.1 million at the worldwide box office. Obviously, a sequel was quickly green lit, and it's now in the midst of production.
Peter's ultimate fate in Infinity War presents something of a dilemma when it comes to marketing Far From Home, as the existence of the Homecoming followup ensures the youngster's death will not be permanent. While it will be interesting to see how the trailers and TV spots come together (and hopefully preserve Avengers 4 secrets), there's little harm to be done in today's bit of news. The film now has a logo.
Sony revealed it today, as their way of celebrating Spider-Man Day. Aesthetically, it is very similar to the Homecoming logo, utilizing the same font and the Spidey mask in place of the letter "O" in the word "home." The only noticeable difference between the two is that the name "Spider-Man" is filled with a darker color. Check it out for yourself in the space below:
Since there isn't much deviation in the logo design, it's an indication Far From Home will be tonally similar to its predecessor. Seeing that key members of the Homecoming creative team (director Jon Watts, co-writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers) are returning, this shouldn't come as the biggest surprise. Your Friendly Neighborhood's previous standalone successfully channeled the coming-of-age vibe of John Hughes and played as a high school comedy, so there's little incentive to mix things up too drastically. Of course, no Spider-Man film is complete without weighty personal drama (and, following Avengers 4, there should be plenty of that), but Far From Home should be a fairly light-hearted outing for the MCU - one that leans on Tom Holland's youthful and energetic portrayal of the titular character.
With Far From Home about a year from reaching theaters (and Marvel being as quiet as they can about Phase 4), fans shouldn't expect to learn too much more about the movie until some time next year. Of course, with Holland always a threat to spoil something on one of his social media accounts, there is a chance some information will come out during production. After all, it was the actor who first revealed the movie's title, so who knows what other "leaks" are on their way.
