Just like what Tom Holland says at the beginning of the latest Spiderman: Far From Home trailer, this article has spoilers, and it’s best if you watch Avengers: Endgame first before you continue reading.
Barely a month after the box office phenomenon, Avengers: Endgame, Marvel releases the most awaited trailer of Spiderman: Far From Home.
With the past two final Avengers movies: Infinity War and Endgame – Tom Holland captured our attention, as well as, our hearts with his small yet impactful performances. Immediately looking forward to a Spiderman movie after the post-Endgame emotional roller coaster fans, like ourselves, are curious about what Marvel has in store, knowing that we’re entering the phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
First thing first, we’ll still see the same casts from the previous Spiderman installment such as Zendaya as Mary Jane or MJ, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds (Peter Parker’s funny best friend) and Marisa Tomei, who plays the youngest Aunt May in the entire franchise. But other than that, we’ll also see Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury. And, the most exciting newcomer is Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio.
The latest trailer of Spiderman: Far From Home had fans bawling all over again. In typical Marvel fashion, Spiderman: Far From Home connects with the events right after Avengers: Endgame, (Spoiler Alert) a world where Iron Man is dead.
In the first few seconds of the trailer, we get to see Peter Parker and the world mourn over Iron Man’s death through graffitis and memorials in the streets of Brooklyn. He said, “Everywhere I go, I see his face. I miss him.”
Jon Watts, the director of Spiderman: Far From Home, told Fandango how the events in Endgame will significantly play in the movie. He said, “In classic New York style, everyone is just moving on and getting on with their daily lives. Ya know, half the people that disappeared are now back, so let’s move on.”
Moreover, it’s quite apparent in the trailer that the movie will follow along the lines where Nick Fury hijacks Peter Parker’s vacation with a mission to save the Earth. You know, the regular Spiderman duties. There’s also the possibility of seeing the fallout after Endgame, where everyone disappeared apparently aged five years without them noticing and how that will affect their passport applications and the like as Watts described.
Overall, Spiderman: Far From Home will be a refreshing take to the entire Spiderman franchise, where Peter Parker wants to manage his ordinary life with school, friends, and blossoming love interest like normal teenagers should.
Jake Gyllenhaal will be introducing the multiverse to the MCU with his character Mysterio, which is most likely pegged as an ally to Spiderman. While on the topic of the multiverse, I’m afraid that we’ll have to wait for the movie and let Nick Fury explain how it works or how it happened. But one thing’s for sure, this will definitely set the stage for Marvel’s Phase 4.
As previously reported, Marvel plans with taking on the more cosmic and intergalactic perspective of its comics. Meaning, Infinity War will least likely be Spiderman’s last trip to space, at least not until after Far From Home. So everything about the multiverse will certainly cause more repercussions across future Marvel movies, so better listen well to what Nick Fury has to say.
Moreover, as Watts said in an interview, “Nick Fury is playing catch-up. He disappeared for five years and the world changed dramatically in his absence, and here he is trying to put together a new team,” where “Spider-Man and Mysterio are being recruited to tackle this threat of the Elementals. That’s what Nick Fury does, but now things are crazier than usual.” This could probably mean that a new set of Avengers–probably with a different name–is in its early days.
Before we wrap it up, here are some easter eggs found by the internet’s greatest detectives aka Twitter that’s worth noticing:
The black suit Spiderman is rocking in the trailer is apparently his stealth suit, as @MarvelousRealm suggests.
Here’s tweet where a Twitter user implies the uncanny resemblance between Iron Man and Spiderman, tech and apparently, glasses included!
Lastly, let Twitter users, specifically @petermjned, dissect the trailer to find gems like these and point out the little details MCU puts in every movie.
