Spider-Man Far From Home

Grab your web slingers and get excited, because Sony released the first Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer this morning, as well as a new poster for the movie.

Releasing in theaters on July 5, this is the second stand-alone Spider-Man movie starring Tom Holland, and the trailer gives us a lot to unpack.

We don’t know exactly when this movie takes place in MCU chronology (before Infinity War? After Endgame?), but this time around there’s no Iron Man around to help or guide Peter. Instead, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) turns up in Peter’s European hotel room, recruiting him to help stop some seriously weird stuff happening across the continent (cue giant water monster).

We also get our first footage of Mysterio, played by Jake Gyllenhaal. Described well in the trailer by Peter’s classmate as “Iron Man and Thor rolled into one,” Mysterio has been assumed to be the movie’s antagonist, but doesn’t come across that way in the trailer—he also battles the giant water monster, and tells Peter not to get involved.

The trailer also gives fans a look at Peter’s personal life, both his relationship with Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) now that she knows about his super-alter ego and his budding—and perfectly awkward—romance with MJ (Zendaya).
