The wait is over. The first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home is now online and features Spider-Man fighting giant monsters in Europe teaming up with none other than Mysterio himself. That’s right, Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio is being marketed as a good guy. And considering that Far From Home takes place minutes after April’s Avengers, that’s Avengers: Endgame officially spoiled for you right there. Have a look.
This is essentially the same trailer that Sony played in front of the audience at Brazil’s CCXP 2018 in December. A dejected Peter Parker has given up his Spider-Man costume to enjoy a normal life. That dream quickly ends though when Nick Fury assigns him on a mission and supplies him with a suit to take down some strange villains causing mayhem and destruction in Europe. Among the villains it appears is Hydro-Man who uses his control over water to flood the city’s streets. The trailer concludes with Mysterio arriving to Spider-Man’s aid.
It’s been quite a road to get to the trailer. Sony missed several opportunities to release it online, first with Into The Spider-Verse, then with Aquaman and later with their critically panned Holmes and Watson. M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass releases this week and it appears the trailer will play ahead of that movie’s screenings. We also speculated if Marvel was responsible for the delay to keep Endgame a secret but unfortunately the cat’s out of the bag now. Spider-Man is alive in a post-Infinity War world and that only means good for the rest of the heroes. Sure no one doubted that they’re gone for good but this is pretty much official confirmation that our dusted and disintegrated superheroes are coming back for certain.
Spider-Man: Far From Home features an ensemble cast that includes Tom Holland as Peter Parker, Zendaya as Michelle a.k.a. M.J., Sally Field as Aunt May, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan and Jake Gyllenhaal as Quentin Beck / Mysterio along with Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. The movie releases in theaters worldwide on July 5, 2019. Look out for our breakdown of the trailer soon; there’s just a lot to unpack here.
