Though Spider-Man: Homecoming isn’t done shooting yet, a big part of the production has finally wrapped. The cast and crew are moving out of their Atlanta home base, with director Jon Watts and star Tom Holland headed for New York City. To make the announcement, the director showed off a special Spider-Man themed cake, while Tom Holland had this short but sweet good-bye for the city he’s called home most of the summer.
“See you soon Atlanta. It’s been real #spidermanhomecoming”
Spider-Man: Homecoming has been shooting at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, which has become home base for quite a few Marvel movies over the past couple of years. This second reboot of the franchise marks the first ever collaboration between Marvel and Sony, and it allows Spider-Man to become a full-fledged member of the MCU, with his first introduction coming in this past May’s Captain America: Civil War.
Fans got their first look at the Spider-Man: Homecoming set when shooting began in Queens, with a lot of the High School set scenes taking place in the city. Now that production has entered its final stages, everyone is moving back to NYC, the actual home town of Peter Parker. Shooting on location will give the movie just the right amount of authenticity that fans have come to expect from the Marvel movies.
Jacob Batalon, who stars as Ned Leeds, also shared some video on Instagram, as he is part of the NYC shoot. There are only a few more weeks left on the shoot. And the trip to New York is expected to be a short one. It’s quite possible that we’ll get to see some set photos soon, as some of the action will be taking place in the wide open streets of the city, where paparazzi and local fans will all be able to get a good look in person. Perhaps more details about the story will emerge at this time as well.
Though we’ve seen plenty of set photos and video over the past couple of months, there has been no sign of Michael Keaton on set. He is reportedly playing villain The Vulture. We have also yet to see Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark or any of the other Avengers, with Black Widow and Captain America rumored to show up for just a few minutes of screen time. It’s possible that we could see Spidey swinging along with a few other Marvel superheroes in the streets of New York City.
While the Atlanta portion of Homecoming has wrapped, many speculate that Tom Holland’s Instagram message, where he says he’ll see Atlanta soon, is indication that his character is returning in Avengers: infinity War. Though that hasn’t been confirmed yet. While we await more info, check out all the new photos and video as Spider-Man enters phase three of it’s reboot.
