“Europe doesn’t really need a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.” Ohh, Peter, you sweet baby superhero. That already tells you plenty about Spider-Man: Far From Home, but watch the delightful first trailer for the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming!
Just as its predecessor infused such high school rites of passage as the homecoming dance with potentially world-ending stakes, Far From Home takes on the quintessential high school Eurotrip, as Peter (Tom Holland), Ned, MJ, and Flash take in the sights in London, Venice, and other picturesque destinations. But superheroes don’t take a vacation, as evidenced by the presence of one familiar face and a new one, who’s Iron Man and Thor (and Doctor Strange, we’d say) all wrapped up in one. Watch the trailer for Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), a new Spidey suit, and Aunt May being the best:
Of course, the presence of Nick Fury and Peter himself gives some clues as to how Avengers: Endgame will go, seeing as this film comes out about two months after the resolution of Thanos’ snap. (We wondered if Far From Home could actually be set before the events of Avengers: Infinity War, but that would require it to wrap up rather neatly in order to fit within the timeline without affecting all the Thanos business.) The official synopsis, from Sony Pictures:
Peter Parker returns in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the next chapter of the Spider-Man: Homecoming series! Our friendly neighborhood Super Hero decides to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation. However, Peter’s plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks are quickly scrapped when he begrudgingly agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks, creating havoc across the continent!
