Spider-Man: Far From Home is a huge success at the box office, while critics and fans alike are generally enjoying it, so a third movie in the new series starring Tom Holland is expected.
Now, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has started to talk about it. Marvel has yet to make any official announcements about a new Spider-Man movie, but it seems clear that Marvel and Sony are already mapping out the character’s future in the MCU. Scroll down to see what Feige had to say.

At the end of Far From Home, J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons) broadcasts a video that Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) recorded before he died, revealing to the world that Spider-Man is Peter Parker. The fact that Spider-Man’s identity is now known will be a major storyline going forward, Feige said.
It will be similar to how Tony Stark revealed himself to be Iron Man at the end of the 2008 film. “The rules have changed,” Feige said.
This means the next Spider-Man movie will “have to do something completely different.”
With Iron Man, the sequels told new stories where the world knew Tony Stark was the superhero. Everything is different for Spider-Man/Peter Parker in this way as well. Not only is his identity revealed, but Jameson is leading a disinformation campaign alleging that Spider-Man killed Mysterio.
“Now people know Peter’s identity. People now think he’s a villain, Mysterio plays one last trick on him and succeeds… [so that] means everything’s different,” Feige said. “Where it goes, we’ll see. But it’s exciting that it once again sets us up for a Peter Parker story that has never been done before on film.”
