Being brought back five years after he turned into dust, Spider-Man still fights the bad guys in his neighborhood. “Are you the next Iron Man now?” a police officer asks the teen superhero
The new trailer for “Spider-Man: Far From Home” is here for fans’ viewing pleasure. As reported before, the video contains a spoiler warning for those who haven’t watched “Avengers: Endgame” as the movie picks up right after the events in the last “Avengers” movie.
“Everywhere I go, I see his face. I just really miss him,” says a teary-eyed Peter Parker (Tom Holland) about his mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) while talking with Tony’s right-hand man Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). “Yeah, I miss him, too,” looking equally emotional, Happy echoes the sentiment. “I don’t think Tony would have done what he did if he didn’t know you were going to be here after he was gone.”
Being brought back five years after he turned into dust, Spider-Man still fights the bad guys in his neighborhood. “Are you the next Iron Man now?” a police officer asks the teen superhero, who quips, “I don’t have time, I’m too busy doing your job.”
But Spider-Man plans to go on a break to go on a European trip with his classmates. After he ignored Nick Fury’s (Samuel L. Jackson) phone call, Nick interrupts Peter’s trip to ask him to team up with Quentin Beck a.k.a. Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) to stop the four Elementals, who can manipulate nature and are terrorizing Europe.
“Look, I’m just a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man,” Peter pleads. “B***h, please,” Fury replies. “You’ve been to space.” With heavy hitters like Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) unavailable for the task, Peter has to step up and become the Earth superhero.
In the trailer, Mysterio is introduced as a hero from an alternate Earth. Director Jon Watts explains to Entertainment Weekly that the use of the Infinity Gauntlet “tore a hole in our dimension” and has led to some unexpected crossovers. ” ‘Endgame’ opened up the possibilities for a much, much larger universe,” he teases. “All that stuff sort of converged in the perfect way for us.”
He goes on saying about the Mysterio twist, “What I wanted to do was bring this iconic character into the world in a way that people weren’t expecting. And Mysterio as the hero is definitely something that we haven’t seen before. The idea of Spider-Man, Mysterio, and Nick Fury teaming up to take on this global threat of the Elementals was really exciting.”
Holland, meanwhile, is relieved that the trailer is out. “It’s so nice that the trailer’s out and now that people have seen ‘Endgame’, I don’t have to carry this around with me,” he says with a laugh. “You’re always worried that you’re going to say something to the wrong person or forget that someone doesn’t know or say something to a journalist. I didn’t want Joe and Anthony Russo showing up at my house in the middle of the night!”
Also starring Zendaya Coleman as MJ, Jacob Batalon as Ned, Marisa Tomei as aunt May and Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, “Spider-Man: Far From Home” is heading into theaters across the nation on July 2.
