Early Reactions to Spider-Man: Far From Home Praise Post Endgame Adventure

As the concussive power of Avengers: Endgame finally starts to lift, Marvel is just about to release Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home, the final film in Phase 3. In the past, every Avengers film has been the shot and the follow-up film was the chaser. We went from the first Avengers to lighter Iron Man 3. Avengers: Age of Ultron was followed by the first, zippy Ant-Man. Avengers: Infinity War was followed by the slightly heavier Ant-Man and the Wasp. We’ve always looked at whatever film came after the marquee (and always colossal) Avengers ensemble movie as lighter fare. Spider-Man: Far From Home might change that calculus a bit.

Now that the film has been screened we’ve got a round-up of some of early reactions. Homecoming exists in a post-Endgame world. This means (spoiler alert) that Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is dealing with the aftermath of his mentor and friend Tony Stark’s death. The story finds Peter and his friends heading to Europe for a summer vacation. Yet danger always lurks around the corner, and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is never far behind. Fury recruits Spider-Man to help fight a new threat, the Elementals. He also introduces him to a new “friend,” Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), who will be helping him in the fight. Considering Mysterio is a classic Spider-Man villain in the comics, this relationship will be one to watch.

So there’s your brief synopsis, let’s see what folks are saying. Spoiler alert—they like it, a lot. And everyone seems to love Gyllenhaal as Mysterio:
