Let's Talk About The New SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Trailer and I've Included a Bunch of Screenshots
A new trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home dropped today, and it was filled with all kinds of fun goodies!
The biggest thing revealed in the trailer was that Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) is from a different Earth from an alternate universe. Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) also says that the snap tore a hole in their dimension. I talk about what this could all mean here, and I’m not entirely convinced that it’s true. Remember that time when Marvel made us believe that The Mandarin was going to play a big role and be a big villain in Iron Man 3?
Anyway, if the MCU is going to actually play with the multiverse, I’m all for it! This means that things in the MCU are going to get even crazier from here on out! I hope that it turns out to be true, we’ll just have to wait and see how the story for Far Form Home plays out and if Mysterio is full of shit or not.
One thing we do know is that the world has changed, and Peter Parker is having a really hard time coping with the death of Tony Stark. While a lot of people think that this whole multiverse thing will be used as a way to bring back Robert Downey Jr. as Tony, I don’t think that will be the case at all. His death in Endgame needed to have a real impact on the MCU and I think Marvel is smart enough not to cheapen the sacrifice that he made.
Happy (Jon Favreau) tells Peter (Tom Holland) that Tony wouldn’t have done what he did if he didn’t know that Peter was going to be there when he was gone. I love that Happy is going to have a big role in this movie! I’ve really enjoyed this character, so to see him continue to help Spider-Man in this new film is a real treat for fans. I imagine he feels obligated and a sense of duty to do this after Tony died.
I also love the fact that at the beginning of the trailer, Peter is just trying to avoid Nick Fury because he wants to just go on vacation with his friends. He totally deserves a break, but as we lean in the trailer, Spider-Man is the only hero available to help him out with fighting against The Elementals, which we get a really good look at in the trailer! But Fury ends up getting his way and taking Peter away from his friends and MJ, who he is clearly trying to start a relationship with.
Speaking of MJ, judging from what we see in the trailer it looks like she has figured out that Peter is really Spider-Man. That will make for an interesting dynamic as the characters slowly form a relationship with each other.
One of the other aspects of the story that I like is that Mysterio seems to serve as a new mentor for Peter. A lot of fans think that the story is going to build up this great relationship and then completely tear it down when Peter finds out that Mysterio is a liar and that he’s the real person behind The Elemental attacks. I hope that’s not true, but the film could very well play out that way.
There’s also a line of dialogue where Peter says that “world needs the next Iron Man.” He seems to believe that Mysterio could be that person. But maybe the next Iron Man will be Peter Parker, especially with that proud look that we see Happy give Peter while playing with some Iron Man tech, after he says that line. That’s followed by Nick Fury asking Peter, “Are you going to step up or not?”
Clearly Spider-Man is going to step up! I loved what I saw in this new trailer, and I’m excited to see how this will lead into the future of the MCU.
Here are a bunch of screenshots from the trailer to scroll through. Check them out and let us know if you have any other thoughts on what this latest trailer revealed to us now that you’ve had a little bit of time to soak it in and watch the trailer a ton of times.
