At Brazil’s Comic-Con CCXP,  Holland, Gyllenhaal, and Batalon shared some plot details of the follow-up, writes Collider.

"It’s basically just about the kids going on a European vacation. We go to London, we go to Prague, we go everywhere. It’s just a really fun thing. There’s a lot of dynamics that go on. A lot of relationship stuff. A lot of cool funny stuff. A lot of fun stunt stuff. The main focus is for him not to be Spider-Man per se, but he gets dragged into it. But you know he reluctantly saves the world again with Mysterio. Mysterio’s a good guy in this, they’re both teaming up to kill the game, to defeat these Elemental monsters."

The filming of Spider-Man: Far from Home ended in October. Michael Keaton, Zendaya and Marisa Tomei will reprise their roles with new cast additions — JB Smoove and Gyllenhaal. Samuel L Jackson and Cobie Smulders will also reprise their MCU roles as Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill.

Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man is scheduled to release on 5 July, 2019.
