The new trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home opens with a warning from Tom Holland. Do not watch this trailer if you have not seen Avengers: Endgame and you want to avoid spoilers. It should also go without saying that, if you are avoiding Endgame spoilers, do not read any further on this post.
Judging from the trailer, Spider-Man: Far From Home finds Peter Parker mourning the loss of his mentor, Tony Stark. Looking to get away from the pressures of crime fighting and saving the world and also wanting to pursue his crush on Zendaya’s MJ, Peter joins his classmates on a trip to Europe. Were all of Peter’s classmates from Spider-Man: Homecoming wiped out by the Snap? According to Avengers: Endgame, bringing everyone back did not change anything that happened over the previous five years. Peter got lucky that MJ apparently wasn’t around to graduate high school and move away while he was non-existent.
Peter may want to escape from it all but Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury has other ideas. Judging from the trailer, it appears that Peter has replaced Tony with three new mentors, Nick Fury, Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau, making the transition over from the Iron Man films), and Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio. Of course, anyone who is familiar with Mysterio’s history knows that Peter should be careful about trusting him.
The trailer also introduces the concept of the Multiverse. With all the questions that Endgame raised about time travel and alternate realities, the Multiverse is surely going to be an important factor moving forward. For instance, it may explain how there’s both a Loki TV show and a Black Widow movie in production when both of those characters were apparently very dead at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
Spider-Man: Far From Home opens on July 2nd.
