The new Spider-Man movie will be filming on the streets of Sunnyside, Long Island City and Astoria this week.

Film notices have been posted throughout the neighborhoods with filming set take place in Long Island City and Astoria on Oct. 15 and in Sunnyside on Oct. 16.

The film has a working title of “Serenity Now,” a reference to an episode of Seinfeld, according to entertainment news outlets. The phrase was used in the hit series by the character Frank Costanza, who was played by Jerry Stiller.

The previous two Spider-Man movies in the current reboot also used Seinfeld references. Spider-Man: Homecoming, was labeled “Summer of George,” and its sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home went by the cover of “Fall of George,” which were references to Jason Alexander’s character George Costanza.

The title of the latest Spider-Man installment has yet to be released and story details are being kept under a web of secrecy.

However, Tom Holland will return as Forest Hills native Peter Parker who turns into the web-slinging super-hero.

Jamie Foxx is believed to be reprising his role as the villain Electro, which he played in the Amazing Spider-Man 2, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The notices have gone up along 46th Avenue between 5th Street and 11th Street in Long Island City and on 23rd Avenue in Astoria between 31st and 33rd streets.

The notices are instructing residents not to park along those roadways on Oct. 15 from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Filming will take place in Sunnyside on Friday, along Greenpoint Avenue between 45th Street and Queens Boulevard. The production crews will also be filming on adjacent streets on the south side of Queens Boulevard.

This will not be the first time Queens has played host to a Spider-Man movie set. The production crew of Spider-Man: Homecoming did a lot of filming on the northern side of Queens Boulevard in 2016.

Several scenes were also shot in the former Dime Bank on the north west corner of Queens Blvd and 43rd Street.

The new Spider-Man movie is slated for a December 2021 release.

I haven’t been on these comments in a while. It’s good to see it is still a bunch of anonymous people complaining and being mean to each other. In an unpredictable world of fear and anxiety, seeing something familiar… is very soothing.

There's actually a new Spiderman villain named Virus

If anything Trump will play that role (from his hospital bed)

Just great, another boring exercise in CGG. No theaters, no On or Off Broadway Shows, yet residents of Sunnyside will be inconvenienced by movie productions of rehashed comic book pap. Junk food for the brain.

Just heard on tv that corona virus might not go away similar to the flu despite the flu shot. Masks are the best defense. Get used to watching movies online.

There was a filmtwo weeks ago in front of my house for a day. They left bags of garbage on the sidewalk that the squirrels and rats tore up. They also left food gloves and surgical masks all over our block. It was unsanitary and a health hazard. Truly disgusting. I had to ask a worker to stop smoking and talking on his cell in my private backyard. He quickly apologized and left when he saw i was recording the interaction. I am latina so i am careful when confronting men in general.

Productions have a lot of rules they have to follow. They are not supposed to leave trash. Report them to their company and it *should* be remedied.

This movie franchise should hire a person of color to play spiderman. Im tired of watching young white boyish looking adult actors in the role. Hollywood needs more diversity in leading roles. Instead of Peter what about Pedro, Pablo or Praxton?

Celebrate diversity or else!

Who is stopping you from going out and making the kind of movie you want to see with actors of the racial and ethnic background of your desire? Or investing in movies where “diversity” is the main priority?

They did a study.

They interviewed children of all races and everything and asked them if they would like to see a multiracial superhero and they all said no.

Spiderman of Color

Into the SpiderVerse has a Spiderman of color in Brooklyn. My kids and their friends talk about Milo, the main character, a lot. It’s actually very good and I think the art work was nominated for an Oscar.

Looking forward to watching the movie 🎥 in a theatre with a big bucket of buttered popcorn 🍿 one day. I really miss life before covid 19.

More woke than thou

In the new woke, social justice-obsessed world, Spiderman is now a soya latte-sipping vegan named Spidertran (the era of the cis-gender super hero is over) and swings from his web all across Queens (the country’s most racially and ethnically diverse county as any conversational bore will tell you) as he fights off rampaging mobs of homophobic, non-mask-wearing white supremacists who have been looting, rioting and parking in bike lanes across the borough.

Can you say Oscars sweep?

This is the kind of corny garbage boomers love

Ooh soy milk jokes! Is it 2006 already?!

Would you rather the social justice reforms be phrased in a way you find more politically correct?

Why does the Radical Right want everything to be PC?

I’m sorry the “ageist” comment offended you. Would you rather it was more PC?

we don’t want Marxism disguised as fake social justice reforms at all…we just want you to go back to Ohio and stop cosplaying as mini Che Guevara…and no you can’t have sharks with laser beams on their heads…
