Swinging Around The Globe
Spider-man: Far From Home is out in cinemas now and here’s its director Jon Watts talking about the inspiration for the film’s settings from Marvel themselves…
In Spider-Man: Far From Home, Peter Parker must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever, following the events of Avengers: Endgame.
The film takes Peter out of his comfort zone and his home in Queens, NYC, and hurls him across Europe during what was supposed to be a high school vacation.
During the Spider-Man: Far From Home junket, Earth’s Mightiest Show had the chance to sit down director Jon Watts and learn how Spidey came to be on a European adventure after the fallout of Endgame. Watch the full interview above.
“The idea for a European vacation first started when Tom [Holland] and I were on the press tour for Homecoming,” revealed Watts. “There was a moment where we were on this rooftop in Rome, and I looked out across the way and there was this stuntman wearing the full Spider-Man costume posing on this rooftop with the panorama of Rome behind him. I thought, ‘That looks cool; I’d go see that movie.’ That’s where the seeds were planted.”
