There are some spoilers for 'Avengers: Endgame' in this article, but the spoiler ban has also been lifted today, May 6. So, read at your own discretion.
On May 6, I woke up to a new 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' trailer, and of course I have to talk about it. The trailer opens on Spider-Man looking at an Iron Man mural. The movie was speculated to take place after 'Avengers: Endgame', and this trailer confirmed that.
At the beginning of the trailer, we see Spider-Man talking to Happy Hogan about how much he misses his mentor. I already know that I'll be shedding tears for Peter within the first few minutes of the movie. Now, say what you will, but I think that Spider-Man is arguably one of the strongest heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. First, his parents die, then he loses his uncle Ben, and now he's lost Tony Stark, another father figure. Peter has so much emotional baggage, I'm amazed at how he seems to stay happy all the time.
It's mentioned a few times in the trailer that there is a need for a new Iron Man. That dialogue is even said by Spider-Man himself. This leads me to believe that it might be up to Peter to fill that role. We even see him put on a prototype Iron-Man glove. While I don't know if this is right for him, it's just a hunch that I have. But if I'm right, it'd be cool to see him and Sam Wilson, the new Captain America, team up for a movie in the future.
One thing that I am curious about, is the scene where Spider-Man takes off a pair of glasses and says "Oh my God." These glasses are reminiscent of Tony Stark's, so I wonder if that will play into Spider-Man becoming the next Iron Man?
We're also introduced to Mysterio more in this trailer, after only getting one line from him in the first trailer. He comes from Earth, but from a different universe. It's explained by Nick Fury that "the snap" created a hole in the universe, which is something that I'd like more of an explanation on. Was it Thanos' snap? Or Iron Man's? The idea of a multiverse will probably be explored, as well.
Since the announcement of Mysterio in this movie, I thought that he was going to be the villain in 'Far From Home.' This trailer leads me to speculate that he still might be the bad guy, but fronts that he's a good guy, seeking help from Spider-Man.
As for MJ and Peter, we might see them advance in their relationship. There's a scene in the trailer where Peter confides in Mysterio, saying that he just wants to tell MJ how he feels. We get a preview of this scene, but it doesn't go as planned. Instead, MJ guesses that Peter is really Spider-Man, which is alarming, but exciting. Only Ned Leeds, Peter's best friend, knows who is really behind the mask. Maybe this will help MJ and Peter further their relationship, since telling someone that you're a superhero takes a lot of trust.
Another thing that I'm excited about is the dynamic between Nick Fury and Spider-Man. Before this movie, they had never met. Maybe Nick will become a new father figure for Peter? Or will help Nick in a new Avengers plan?
I cannot wait for July 2nd to roll around. The Spider-Man movies are more lighthearted, and I always have a fun time watching them. Spider-Man is my favorite character in the MCU, and I'm never stressed out when I watch Spider-Man movies, unlike Captain America or Avengers ones. I'm excited to see where this movie leads the MCU next.
