Tom Holland has been a welcome breath of fresh air to the MCU. He’s amped to be Peter Parker, swinging around and having fun, displaying none of the reluctant, “eh, maybe I don’t want to be doing this” you’ll sometimes hear from other actors in the franchise (regardless of how delightful they may be otherwise).

So while it’s not the most Earth-shattering news in the world, the discovery of an official title for the upcoming sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming is still a nice chance to see him excited about returning to the world of the wall-crawler and his stand-alone movies. In a new Instagram post, Holland talks about how he’s sad to not have any big exciting announcements, while holding up a tablet that contains the name of the next Spider-Man film. Well played, sir.

Admitting he’s a little bit uncertain as to what exactly will happen in the sequel (“I’m a little confused, because I died, so”), the actor nonetheless expresses enthusiasm about reading the new script, the title of which—Spider-Man: Far From Home—is plainly visible on his device. It’s a pretty understated way to get the title announcement out there, but then again, Spider-Man’s always been one of the most down-to-earth of Marvel’s heroes. Even after a pretty upsetting death scene, Peter Parker is ready to get back to work, flinging webs and cracking wise—presumably nowhere near Queens, given this news. (The Hollywood Reporter confirms this, mentioning the film will take Spider-Man to London, among other places.)
