Spider-Man has barely finished saving the world with the Avengers, but he's swinging back into cinemas for a new solo outing at a key moment for Marvel's record-smashing superhero movies. While Earth is now safe from master villain Thanos's evil clutches, an epic storyline spanning all 22 previous Marvel films of the most lucrative franchise in film history ended with April's monster hit "Avengers: Endgame."

"It makes for such a great playground where he's trying just to get up onto that tower and he can't." Similarly, an early battle sees Venice's ornate bridges, canal walls and bell towers provide Spider-Man the ideal platform for spinning his webs -- though not all survive unscathed. Iconic locations are useful in complex action scenes, Watts says, because they provide a simple geography that means "people understand where they are and what's going on." "It really helps … [Read more...] about Venice canals to Tower Bridge: Spider-Man takes on Europe

Following the loss of his mentor Iron Man/Tony Stark, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is looking to take a break from all his worries with MJ (Zendaya) and the rest of the crew, but Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) soon interrupts his European jaunt to request he helps Mysterio/Quentin Beck (Jake Gyllenhaal) take on a dangerous new threat, the Elementals.
