Spider-Man: Homecoming Sequel Looks To Introduce New Villain & Lead

The production work on Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is expected to begin in June in Berlin. With just two months remaining for the filming to begin, the casting process is well underway. Fans are quite keen to know who Peter Parker will confront in the 2019 sequel.

It was previously reported that Marvel Studios was looking out for a Bond-girl type femme fatale to star opposite Tom Holland in the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel. But the role won’t likely be of the lead villain. Now, a new report coming from That Hashtag Show suggests that Marvel Studios casting director Sarah Finn is on a lookout to fill two major roles for the sequel.

The first is a baddie with “elevated ideas.” For the role, the studio is open to auditioning male and female actors of any ethnicity between the age brackets of 30-45 years. As Spiderman has a long list of enemies including Norman Osborn, Mysterio, Kraven the Hunter, and Otto Octavius, it remains to be seen who will fight Peter Parker in the untitled Spider-Man 2.

As for the second role that is of a high school student, the makers are looking for an 18-24-year-old male lead of any ethnicity, who will presumably be introduced as a friend to Parker. As per the role description, the character will be on par with Tom Holland’s Peter Parker and should have leading qualities.

Talking more about the sequel project, there are reports which claim that the film’s production work will take place in London, Venice, and Prague. While the film’s story details have been kept under wraps, it is confirmed that the untitled Spidey movie begins just a few minutes after the events of Avengers 4.

Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is set to arrive on July 5, 2019, just two months after Avengers 4, which hits theaters on May 3, 2019.
