What's in store for the web-head?
Posting a video to fans online following an appearance at ACE Seattle Comic Con, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, apologized to fans for not having any big announcements to share.
At the end of the video above, he revealed some excitement about diving into the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel script pondering what could be in store for Peter Parker following the events of Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War.” Eagle-eyed fans spotted the script title on-screen as “Spider-Man: Far From Home.”
Is this the official title for the Spidey sequel? What are our heroes fates following “Avengers: Infinity War”? Time will tell. In the meantime, keep it on Marvel.com for all Marvel Studios-related news!

We wrap up our look at Spidey's story so far with the Clone Conspiracy and much more!
For over 50 years, Spider-Man has been a sensational standout in the Marvel Universe and the web-slinger is now back on the silver screen once again in Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War”! In celebration of his memorable history, we present our final installment of Spidey’s spectacular step-by-step story so far…
The Jackal revealed his resurrected dead villains to Spider-Man in DEAD NO MORE: CLONE CONSPIRACY #2, while Carrion attacked Peter Parker’s clone Kaine in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #21. Spidey dodged the bad guys in DEAD NO MORE: CLONE CONSPIRACY #3 and a returned Ben Reilly swung in to help and to illustrate his amazing recovery in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #22.
Doctor Octopus and the Lizard ramped up their violence in DEAD NO MORE: CLONE CONSPIRACY #4, and the Gwen Stacy clone began to decay when Ock set wheels in motion to hurt his foe as much as possible. Gwen tried to convince Spidey to join with Jackal in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #23, but when he refused she ran interference for him before she disintegrated completely in DEAD NO MORE: CLONE CONSPIRACY #5. Ben Reilly took on Jackal directly in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #24, and gained a new life for himself in DEAD NO MORE: CLONE CONSPIRACY OMEGA #1.
Spider-Man witnessed the return of Kang the Conqueror in AVENGERS #1, learned the truth behind it in AVENGERS #2, watched as Wasp attempted to fix the problem in AVENGERS #3, learned of Kang’s history in AVENGERS #4, found himself lost in time in AVENGERS #5, and helped to bring about Kang’s ultimate defeat in AVENGERS #6.
Comedian-magicians Penn and Teller helped Spidey and Deadpool battle Tarot in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #11, then the wallcrawler and the Merc with a Mouth tried to save Christmas in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #12, and somehow ended up in Weirdworld in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #13. Spidey made it a major mission to seek out Norman Osborn for capture in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #25, leading to he and Silver Sable invading her home nation of Symkaria in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #26.
In Symkaria, the wallcrawler learned of Osborn’s plan to gas citizens with Goblin Serum in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #27 and disabled the missile that would carry it in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #28. Doctor Doom sought the Avenger’s help in AVENGERS #7, and Avenger X made a surprising reappearance in AVENGERS #8. Nightcrawler manifested in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #14, while Itsy Bitsy planned more mischief. The underground Monster Metropolis rose up in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #15, and Dracula made his presence known to Spidey and Deadpool in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #16.
Otto Octavius joined with the Hydra Captain America in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #29 and began to destroy Parker Industries. Cornering Spidey in Shanghai in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #30, the “Superior Doctor Octopus” saw his plans crumble when Peter Parker tore down his own company and fortune to halt his enemy’s march to victory in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #31. Later, the webslinger joined with other rebel heroes at the Washington Monument to battle Hydra in SECRET EMPIRE #9, and cheered on the real Captain America as he confronted his corrupt doppelganger in SECRET EMPIRE #10.
After standing alongside his teammates in the aftermath of Hydra’s defeat in AVENGERS #11, Spidey investigated a criminal tech ring in Chicago in PETER PARKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #1. Peter’s long-lost sister Teresa, now a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, sought his aid in PETER PARKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #2, helped him confront the Kingpin in PETER PARKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #3, and then fight the Vulture in PETER PARKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #4 and PETER PARKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #5.
Our hero’s hackles rose over Itsy Bity’s and Patient Zero’s killing spree in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #17, and he subsequently believed Itsy destroyed in a “plasma breeder” in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #18. Spidey and Deadpool decided to get serious about crimefighting in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #19, but the presence of Slapstick during a brouhaha with El Tenor in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #20 put Peter back on the laugh-track.
Norman Osborn traveled to Tibet to find a way to reactivate his goblin powers in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #32, and Peter Parker found himself once more down on his luck and hated by everyone around him in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #789, including his old friend Johnny Storm in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #790. Things grew worse when Arcade kidnapped him for a new Murderworld in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #21, prompting Deadpool to make a hard choice over whether to rescue him or not in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #22.
Elsewhere, a mystery meteorite fell to Earth and demanded the attention of Spider-Man and Earth’s Greatest Heroes in AVENGERS #672…
Now that we’re (mostly) caught up through the end of last year and Spidey’s more recent adventures, this is the last installment of History of Spider-Man for now.

The PlayStation 4 game’s main character will be seen in SPIDERGEDDON #0 and on variant covers.
This September, the star of an epic blockbuster video game will make his way to the pages of a comic book, when the new web slinger from Marvel’s Spider-Man makes his Marvel Comics in-continuity debut in Spidergeddon #0!
On top of that, to celebrate the launch of the highly anticipated game — which will be available exclusively on PlayStation 4 on September 7 — the game’s version of the wall-crawler will be showcased in a set of five variant covers.
How will the star of one of the most anticipated video games of 2018 enter the Marvel Universe, and what role will he play? All will be revealed on September 26 by writer Christos Gage – who not only is the scribe of SPIDERGEDDON #0 but is also one of the co-writers of Marvel’s Spider-Man – and acclaimed artist Clayton Crain.
The Marvel’s Spider-Man Video Game Variant cover program is illustrated by Insomniac Games artists Dennis Chan, Daryl Mandryk, Eve Ventrue and Sing Ji, and Marvel Games’ own Art Director Tim Tsang, and all five covers pay homage to classic Amazing Spider-Man comic covers!
Look for Marvel’s Spider-Man Video Game Variant covers on these select titles in September:
1. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL #1 MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN VIDEO GAME VARIANT by DENNIS CHAN (homage to Amazing Spider-Man #546 by Steve McNiven)
2. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #5 MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN VIDEO GAME VARIANT by DARYL MANDRYK (homage to Amazing Spider-Man #46 by John Romita)

5. WEST COAST AVENGERS #2 MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN VIDEO GAME VARIANT by TIM TSANG (homage to Amazing Spider-Man #151 by John Romita)
You can see all five variant covers in the gallery below.
“Growing up as lifelong fans of the web-slinger, everyone on the Marvel Games, Insomniac Games and PlayStation teams are honored and thrilled that characters from Marvel’s Spider-Man are not only gracing all-new variant covers, but are also starring in an in-continuity Marvel Comics event,” said Marvel Games executive creative director Bill Rosemann. “While making the game we poured through hundreds of Spidey’s comics, which inspired our take on his many famous friends, foes, costumes and moments. For the creative process to come full circle and see our version of the characters now appear in the web-slinger’s latest comic book saga is a dream come true for these True Believers.”
“It’s been such an honor for all of us at Insomniac Games to bring the friendly neighborhood wall-crawler to the PlayStation 4, but to see our version of Spider-Man now swing to the pages of a Marvel comic and be featured in SPIDERGEDDON is something we could have never imagined,” said Insomniac Games creative director Bryan Intihar. “We’re all web heads and super excited for the upcoming comics.”

Peter Parker deals with the Spider-Verse, Secret Wars and life as a billionaire!
For over 50 years, Spider-Man has been a sensational standout in the Marvel Universe and the web-slinger is now back on the silver screen once again in Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War”! In celebration of his memorable history, we present Spidey’s spectacular step-by-step story…
One of Spider-Man’s greatest foes, Carnage, became “inverted” in AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #4 due to the Red Skull’s machinations, as well as Captain America and other heroes. In AXIS #5, Spidey escaped his friends’ evil actions, but Apocalypse showed up to make things worse. The webslinger helped gather former villains to save the day in AXIS #6, and he joined with Deadpool to stop Apocalypse’s “gene bomb” in AXIS #7. The heroic Carnage actually stopped the bomb in AXIS #8, while Spidey fought the X-Men until everything could be put back the way it should be in AXIS #9.
Alternate universe Spider-heroes sought out Spidey in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #9 to beg his help in stopping Morlun and the Inheritors from killing them all. Our hero went to the Great Web to hand-pick a team in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #10, which included Otto Octavius, the Superior Spider-Man, who quickly wanted to take over the group. The wallcrawler challenged Otto in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #11, and after making a pact with Spider-Gwen, went toe-to-toe with Morlun in battle.
Multiple versions of Spider-Man clashed with the villains to gather the Spider-Totems in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #12, but the tide turned with the inclusion of an Uncle Ben Spider-Man in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #13, and Otto’s key to victory over the Inheritors in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #14. Later, Otto picked a fight with everyone in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #15, but Peter Parker set him right.
Spidey assisted the Fantastic Four versus the Quiet Man in FANTASTIC FOUR #643, a twisted version of the Avengers in FANTASTIC FOUR #644, and the Psycho-Man in FANTASTIC FOUR #645. Peter’s Parker Industries vied with Alchemax to bid on building a super-prison in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #16, Spidey fought the Ghost in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #17, and lost his building in the battle in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #18.
After a scrap with Tombstone in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #16.1, the webslinger joined with the Wraith to investigate a mystery that led into a gang war in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #17.1, the return of the Black Cat in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #18.1, a clash with the Circus of Crime in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #19.1, and big, violent misunderstanding with the Wraith in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #20.1.
As Spidey’s universe prepared for an incursion by another universe in SECRET WARS #1, he boarded Reed Richards’ “life raft” with other heroes to escape the cataclysm. Seemingly years later, the raft opened up on a planet called “Battleworld” in SECRET WARS #2 and our hero learned its ‘god” was none other than Doctor Doom. Spider battled another group stranded there, the Cabal, in SECRET WARS #4, until Dr. Strange scattered him and his teammates to the far corners of the planet when Doom took notice.
Peter, along with fellow Spider-Man Miles Morales, sought the planet’s power source in SECRET WARS #6, but found the all-powerful Molecule Man instead. The final war with Doom’s forces kicked off in SECRET WARS #8, and after his defeat by Reed Richards in SECRET WARS #9, Peter welcomed Miles to his rebuilt universe as the second official Spider-Man.
Now a billionaire from “webware” he created, Peter Parker swung into battle as Spidey with his new Spider-Mobile in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 against the Zodiac, who then returned in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #2 to challenge our hero again with a scheme to steal his tech from him.

MARVEL PUZZLE QUEST
Spider-Man (Infinity War) arrives in the hit mobile game Marvel Puzzle Quest this week with the fresh Stark Iron Spider suit inspired by Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War! Recruit him onto your team this Thursday!
Our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will have to use his wit, strength, and Spidey sense to help our other heroes stop Thanos from collecting all the Infinity Stones and enacting his master plan to wipe out half of all existence! The 4-Star Spider-Man (Infinity War) sees tons of new upgrades courtesy of. Tony Stark. Spidey can create web tiles to prevent damage to himself, hinder opponents, strengthen allies and deal additional damage to the enemy. Team up Spidey with other characters that can create web tiles like Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen!
The passive blue power Quick Reflexes activates his Spidey-sense letting Spider-Man anticipate danger and react accordingly. Whenever Spidey makes a match, create 2 web tiles. Enemy powers deal 12% less damage to Spider-Man for each web tile on the board. Whenever Spider-Man takes damage from an enemy power, remove half of all web tiles.
With Thwip, Thwip, Pow!, a green power, Spider-Man swings through the air lobbing a quick burst of web-shots into battle. His webs hit 4 random colored tiles, locking any enemy tiles, fortifying any friendly tiles and converting the rest to web tiles.
Proportional Punch, a red power, allows Spidey to grab his enemy with his cybernetic spider legs to deliver a blow with the proportional strength of a spider! It deals 333 damage plus 134 damage for every Blue, Green, or Red web tile on the board, and 67 damage for every other web tile.
Recruit Spider-Man (Infinity War) during S.H.I.E.L.D. Training – Heroes for Hire or Spider-Man & Friends. Don’t miss the following events as well – Spider-Man vs Sinister Six and S.H.I.E.L.D. Training both kick off this Thursday, May 31, while the Deadpool vs MPQ kicks off this Sunday, June 3! The Made Up Name tournament also kicks off this Sunday where you can snag Spider-Man (Infinity War) as a progression reward!
