THE brand new Spider-Man movie is out and with it comes a Hollywood A-lister making their Marvel movie debut.
Here's the lowdown on Spider-Man: Far From Home which came out on July 2…
When is Spider-Man: Far From Home out?
The new film hit UK cinemas on July 2.
It will be released in the US on July 5, 2019, while being released in European countries a day before on July 4.
The age rating of the film is 12A and running time is 2 hours 13 minutes.
What has been said about there being a gay Spider-Man?
Spider-man actor Tom Holland revealed that there would be a gay version of Spider-Man in the next few years.
He hinted the next Spidey, potentially Miles Morales, will be different to straight Peter Parker.
Asked about the possibility of an LGBT+ superhero suiting up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tom told the Sunday Times Culture magazine: "Yeah of course.
"I can't talk about the future of the character because honestly I don't know and it's out of my hands.
Asked on EW Morning Live to clarify if he was playing the first out gay character in a Marvel movie, Joe said: "Yes, openly gay. There've been insinuations about other characters' sexuality, but this is the first openly gay character."
Pressed on who else is gay, he added: "Uhhh. We're gonna find out!"
Anthony added: "That's a story for another day."
But Joe then expanded on the evasive answer and said: "There is a gay character coming up in one of their films, and I think Kevin will make that announcement, I'm sure pretty soon."
What happens in the trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home?
The trailer shows Peter Parker travelling to Europe with his friends and wanting to just be a regular teenager.
That doesn’t last long, as he’s contacted by Nick Fury, who alerts him to a special mission in Europe and informs him of his duty.
At the heart of the mission is the villain Mysterio (played by new comer to Marvel Jake Gyllenhaal), but it’s unclear just who Spidey is dealing with or what exactly Mysterio is up to.
