Now that we’re all getting over Avengers: Endgame, Sony has released a new trailer for this summer’s Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel. Now that Endgame’s spoiler ban has lifted (according to the Russo brothers at least), the trailer also definitively reveals that Spider-Man’s new movie takes place after the Avengers film in the MCU.

Parker is hoping to continue his trip, but Fury tells him that other heroes like Thor and Captain Marvel are not available right now. Also, if it wasn’t obvious enough that Spider-Man is the only available option to deal with threats to Earth, MJ tells him it’s obvious that Parker’s Spidey.

We also get looks at Mysterio flying through the city, Spider-Man dealing with a fiery Molten Man and Hogan trying to rescue Parker’s friends by saying he works with Spider-Man.

In the comics,  Mysterio is typically an acclaimed “bad guy,” but it looks like we may be getting a European buddy-comedy in this film — which leaves many fans with a lot of questions. The official movie description from Sony seems to insinuate that Spidey will at least team up with someone, but maybe it’s just Fury instead of Beck:

Our friendly neighborhood Super Hero 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!

This multiverse was rumoured previously, and only somewhat fueled by an interview the directors did, wherein Joe Russo confirmed that Ned was also dusted during the Snap and his reunion with Peter in Endgame is just that: “That’s the two of them seeing each other for the first time after having disappeared.”

Akhil was raised by movies, television, and the internet. A never-ending source of absolutely useless information. He would tell you more, but he was distracted by something shiny
