Trailer drops for new 'Spider-Man' movie and it looks spectacular
Spider-Man: Far From Home has got something of an uphill battle. People are going to see it regardless, but it bears a lot of responsibility considering it will be the next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to hit theatres since Avengers 4 - which we recently found out will be called Avengers: Endgame when its first teaser trailer dropped last month.
Even though we don't know exactly how it will turn out in Endgame, which serves as the conclusion to multi-film arc Marvel Studios have been orchestrating since 2008, it was a safe bet that they'd be making more movies in the future. After all, did you really think Disney were going to leave money on the table? Spider-Man level money?
Still, the next entry in the rebooted Spider-Man franchise is dropping only a couple of months after the Avengers sequel, meaning they've got to market it without dropping any spoilers for what happens in Endgame.
So, they've been a little coy about the details in the build-up to the summer 2019 release so far. Tom Holland even joked about the confusion during his appearance (in costume no less) on The Jimmy Kimmel Show in October.
This time around, they're changing things up a little. We may associate the superhero with his web-swinging between the towering skyscrapers of Manhattan, but for Spider-Man: Far From Home, he'll be leaving the United States entirely.
Heading out on a school trip across Europe with fellow classmates from the Midtown School of Science and Technology, Peter Parker (Holland) is ready to enjoy the sights and leave his costume behind - but things rarely go his way.
He soon has to don the suit once more to take on a new threat, in the form of Mysterio - played by none other than Jake Gyllenhaal. However, all may not be what it seems with this strange character, as the latest trailer has hinted.
Yesterday, Tom Holland teased his fans with the new trailer, responding to one fan's intense request for them to drop it with a "I'll see what I can do."
The following day, he wrote, "So I spoke to Sony..." only to leave his fans to writhe with impatience for the next 22 or so hours.
Thankfully, the wait was over eventually, and they dropped the full trailer, which you can watch below:
Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, and Jacob Batalon are all returning to the cast as MJ, Aunt May and Ned Leeds respectively, while there will be some unexpected guest stars to join them. Both Samuel L Jackson (Nick Fury) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) are returning, with Fury being the one to recruit the teen hero to help him out.
It looks like Gyllenhaal's Mysterio will be a hero, at least at first, but there's bound to be more to be revealed once the next trailer hits in a few months. In the meantime, we've got plenty to keep us going, with Captain Marvel coming out on March 8.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released on July 5 this year.
