Peter Parker Fights the Elementals in First Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer
Behold, Spidey-fans; Sony has dropped the first Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer. The youngest member of the Avengers has returned from the dead (somehow) after the events in Avengers: Infinity War and has taken his talents abroad. Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and his high school pals are on a school trip to Europe, but you know that wherever Peter goes trouble awaits. The poor kid has already had to fight against Captain America in Germany (Captain America: Civil War), best the Vulture (Michael Keaton) in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and go into outer space to fight the universe’s most powerful supervillain, Thanos, in Infinity War. The kid hasn’t even gotten his high school diploma yet. Things get no easier in Far From Home, where Peter finds himself fighting elemental creatures from outer space that are terrorizing the good people of Europe. He’s tapped by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to fight these bizarre beings, making Peter wish he was back in Queens taking down bank robbers.
The trailer is brisk, fun and snappy; much, much closer to Homecoming than Infinity War. We only glimpse Jake Gyllenhaal‘s Mysterio briefly—he reminds us of Alfred Molina’s Dr. Octopus from Spider-Man 2, a brilliant, once good man who became a major villain. Far From Home follows the game-changing Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, two very different films exploring two very different Spider-Man realms. Far from Home looks to be breezy and sun-lit compared to the Russo Brothers somber, MCU-shaking Infinity War.
We’ve embedded the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer below. The film opens July 5, 2019, and also stars returning champions Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Jon Favreau, and Marisa Tomei, with newcomers Cobie Smulders, Angourie Rice, Martin Starr, JB Smoove, and the aforementioned Jake Gyllenhaal.
