Well, not to get all spoilery on you (by the nature of this story we actually have to), but at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, we saw Tom Holland’s Spider-Man among those turned to dust by Josh Brolin’s bad guy Thanos. Well, with the arrival of the first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home just released, we’ve got the proof that Spidey is back (not that anyone is really surprised).
Sony Pictures describes the film as follows: “Peter Parker returns in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the next chapter of the Spider-Man: Homecoming series! Our friendly neighborhood superhero decides to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation. However, Peter’s plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks are quickly scrapped when he begrudgingly agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks, creating havoc across the continent!”
Oh, yeah, Nick Fury’s back, even though we saw him turned to dust in the final tag of the Avengers film, too. Also, there was a rumor going around that this film will actually be a prequel to May’s Avengers: Endgame, but given that that movie is being released April 26 and Far From Home reaches theatres on July 5, we’re going with the notion that this takes place afterward. And both of those films, incidentally, will take place after March’s Captain Marvel, which is set in the 1990s anyway.
Other cast members in the new Spider-Man include Samuel L. Jackson as Fury and Cobie Smulders as his “associate” and former spy Maria Hill; Jon Favreau as “Happy” Hogan, who works with Tony Stark but these days is keeping an eye on Spidey’s alter-ego of Peter Parker; Jacob Batalon reprising his role of Peter’s best friend, Ned; Zandaya back as Michelle “MJ” Jones, a friend of Peter who gives the impression in this trailer that there could be something more going on; Marisa Tomei returning as Peter’s Aunt May Parker; and Jake Gyllenhaal as Quentin Beck/Mysterio, who is an expert on the Elementals and brought into the mix by Fury.
To say we can’t wait would be an understatement.
