Filming To Start On Spider-Man 3 In July

Filming To Start On Spider-Man 3 In July

Filming is set to start on the new Spider-Man film in July this year.

The eagerly-awaited third instalment, which is yet to be titled, will be shot in Atlanta, New York, Los Angeles, and even Iceland.

It will also see Jon Watts return as the director and, of course, Tom Holland back to reprise his role of Peter Parker.

Not much is know in terms of plot, but it will follow on from last summer's Spider-Man: Far From Home, which starred Jake Gyllenhaal as the villainous Mysterio.

The news comes just after the trailer was released for another upcoming Marvel blockbuster, Morbius.

The movie is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, who originated as Spider-Man villain but went on to become an antihero in his own series.

"Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease."

The trailer also includes a brief appearance from Michael Keaton's villain Vulture from Spider-Man: Homecoming, a character many fans were excited to see.

Speaking about the to IGN, Leto said of his character: "Inside of Morbius, there's a person who has a moral code. There's a good person. Ultimately it's that common struggle between good and evil. And, I guess, we'll see what ultimately prevails.

"That's what I like a lot about this movie. We're not walking such a clear path. There's not a clear line between what's right and what's wrong. There's some gray area there.

"And Morbius is an imperfect person. He's not your grandfather's superhero. He's a deeply complex character and imperfect. And I really loved that aspect that here we're taking someone who is like all of us, has a fair amount of challenges and issues."
