Spider-Man: Far From Home: Tom Holland Debuts New Spidey Suit

Spidey's got a brand-new suit, and Tom Holland ain't afraid to show it off. 

During his Thursday, October 18 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Spider-Man actor Holland debuted his new costume for Spider-Man: Far From Home, the upcoming sequel to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming

The suit reveal started with Kimmel's security-guard-turned-sidekick Guillermo running out on stage, wearing a Spider-Man mask over his face and flinging his wrists as if he was activating his web shooters. (He threw in a few "pew-pew-pew"s for added effect.) Just as Kimmel began to laugh and after Guillermo insisted that he wasn't himself and was actually the real teenage vigilante Spider-Man, Holland appeared at the back of the stage with an orange traffic cone on his head, apparently having just stepped off the set of Spider-Man: Far From Home

In his perfect Brooklyn accent, not once breaking character, Holland demanded that Guillermo give him back his mask. As he followed Guillermo around the stage, Holland showed off the sleek red and black suit he'll wear in Spider-Man sequel pic. 

Asked how exactly Guillermo swiped Spidey's mask, a still-in-character Holland explained, "It's a long story, Jimmy. It's a sad story too. I ran out of web fluid. I was waiting for the B38 and he snuck up behind me and stole it right off my head." 

When Kimmel quipped that he thought the hero had Spidey sense, Holland answered that Guillermo's "not really all that threatening," so there was no need for his special sixth sense to kick in. Holland then mentioned that he needed to get back to set — a surprising statement considering Spider-Man: Far From Home wrapped filming on Wednesday, before he popped up on Jimmy Kimmel Live! for this sketch — which Kimmel took as a tease that a third Spider-Man movie is in the works.

Kimmel then brought up the fact that Spider-Man seemingly died at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, and questioned whether Spider-Man: Far From Home was a prequel movie. (It isn't, as Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously revealed.) Learning from his past mistakes of dishing up details he doesn't have the authority to discuss, Holland hilariously skirted around the situation: "I think Thanos is robbing a bank, so I'm going to go," he said as he flipped off the stage. 

Shifting focus back on the new suit, this marks the first instance that we've seen the red and black Spider-Man suit on video. Holland gave fans a sneak peek at the costume via a photo he uploaded to his Instagram page earlier this week, in which he's seen standing next to his co-star Zendaya, who plays Michelle "MJ" Jones. He also shared a snap of himself wearing the Far From Home suit while whipping around some kind of pole

An updated costume isn't the only bit of newness Holland's Peter Parker will experience in Spider-Man: Far From Home. The sequel, directed by Jon Watts, will take the blossoming Avenger around the world, seeing him swing across international locations during his summer vacation before his third year of high school. He'll also face off against a new villain: Mysterio, the evil alter ego of special effects artist Quentin Beck, played by Jake Gyllenhaal

With principal photography on Spider-Man: Far From Home done and dusted, now begins the post-production process and the start of the sequel's promotional campaign. Fans should keep their eyes peeled for more Spidey-related announcements the closer Marvel and Sony get to launching Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5, 2019.
