[incoherent screaming] The first Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer is here!
We’ve all been on the edge of our seats since April 2018, when Peter Parker first mentioned he wasn’t feeling so well in the waning moments of Avengers: Infinity War. What happened? Where did Peter and all his friends go? Will they ever come back?
All of those questions will be answered when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters in April. Far From Home is coming later, over the summer. It’ll likely be a very different Marvel Cinematic Universe by then. But one thing we can count on: Tom Holland’s Peter Parker will remain a reliable constant of thwips, wisecracks, and teenage innocence.
Far From Home finds him facing off against a new threat in Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), a villainous master of illusion who wears a giant fishbowl on his head. He’s always been a joke in the comics. Will we be expected to take him seriously in the movie? Or is this another bait-and-switch a la Ben Kingsley’s “Mandarin” in Iron Man 3?
Also (seemingly) spotted in the trailer: Spidey villains Sandman and Hydro Man. That’s what it looks like anyway! It could also just be Mysterio doing his master of illusion thing, I suppose.
Time will tell what the truth is. Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters on July 5.
