Set in Venice, London, and Prague, ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home‘, which is about to be released, is the sequel of the popular 2017 Marvel movie ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ and see’s Peter and his school friends head to Europe for a summer vacation.
At the time of filming, Spider-Man star Tom Holland took to social media to share photos and videos of himself, along with two of his friends and co-stars, Zendaya Coleman and Jacob Batalon (Peter’s classmates and confidants, Ned and MJ) in the most romantic city in the world. The crew filmed for 12 days in several different locations including Rio di Sant’Anna canal, Castello, Celestia, Cannaregio in Rio dei Gesuiti, Ponte de la Panada, Canal Grande Rialto, San Basilio, Santa Maria Formosa, Rialto, and Erbaria.
Also, the iconic San Marco square has, of course, been included in the scenes. In this location, the film crew apparently spent a great deal of time throwing rubbish on the floor and turning over chairs and tables before hosing the area down with a large volume of water to portrait the devastation of a storm caused by Jake Gyllenhaal’s villainous character Mysterio as he tries to ruin the world.
Director Jon Watts said that Venice’s ornate bridges, canal walls, and bell towers provide Spider-Man the ideal platform for spinning his webs – though, in the movie, not all survive unscathed.
The shooting obviously conditioned the daily life of locals for almost two weeks, but people have been happy to cooperate and about a thousand Venetian were recruited as extras. There has also been a local double for Tom Holland: 19-year-old Edoardo De Luca from Treviso grew up devouring Spider-Man comics and for three days he interpreted his favorite super-hero.
