So with Spiderman Far From Home doing extremely good business currently having earned over $844m it seems that making a billion is within its reach. So we’ve done a bit of digging and here’s what you don’t know about Spiderman Far From Home
- After the bombshell in the post credits scene it appears that the next film in the series will feature comic baddie Kraven the Hunter who hail from Wakanda (Black Panther)– specifically a now non-existent tribe exiled from the country. It’s potentially riskily idea to take a comical villain into one a film both linked to the wider MCU and with more gravitas.
2. On his social media profile Jake Gyllenhaal has revealed he had a cameo in the film. Dressed in a Hawaiian shirt Gyllenhaal can be seen walking behind found a shot Peter in Venice as the high schooler was preparing to buy his Black Dahlia murder necklace.
3. Sam Raimi the director of the original Spiderman trilogy has said that he still hasn’t quite shaken off his original plans for a fourth “Spider-Man” – plans scrapped after the hugely expensive third film: “I think about it all the time. It’s hard not to, because each summer another ‘Spider-Man’ film comes out! So when you have an unborn one, you can’t help but think what might have been. But I try to focus on what will be, and not look into the past.”
4. Journalist Richard Rushfield’s recently revealed that “the original Sony/Marvel deal to co-produce these movies stipulated that if Spiderman Far from Home cleared a billion, Marvel would get to oversee a third. If it hadn’t, full control would have reverted back to Sony.” In other words, if the new sequel didn’t make enough money at the box-office, Sony would be able to get out of its deal with Marvel Studios and have full autonomy over the character again as they did with the Maguire and Garfield films. As such they will still continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of the films!
