We knew it was coming. We knew they’ve been holding off from showing the new Spider-Man trailer because of the potential spoilers for Avengers: Endgame. But it’s finally here: the new trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home has been released. It’s time to take a deeper look into the trailer and what it could mean.
Be warned – there are potential spoilers for Avengers: Endgame!
The world is mourning the loss of Iron Man. A few times in the trailer, we see murals dedicated to him. Here, we can see that Peter is a wreck after the loss of Tony Stark.
This is a great look at the Iron Spider Armor. Its inclusion makes me curious at how many suits Peter have during the movie.
Peter Parker isn’t interested in working with Fury while he is mourning Tony, but later we see that Nick doesn’t take no for an answer.
It looks to me that after Tony’s passing, Peter got a lot more access to his tech. The glasses in particular look like the glasses that Tony wore during Avengers: Endgame.
We get a better look at Mysterio in the trailer, and I have to say that I love the costume. His powers seem to work on a magic scale like Dr. Strange but I’m still betting it’s going to be illusions based on his comic book power set.
This trailer gives us better looks at the film’s “villains” – a group called the Elementals. There are a few different ways the movie could portray this group.
I’ve been thinking for a time that the group will end up being illusions created by Beck to make him seem heroic. But they could go with them being based on the group of Captain Marvel villains of the same name that consist of the leader Hellfire, Hydron, Magnum and Zephyr. Or they could use the classic Spider-Man villains of Molten Man, Hydro-Man, Sandman and Cyclone as within the comics since they have control of the same elements.
I do want to point to the final image in the group that I’ve labeled as Cyclone/Zephyr. Both of these two in the comic control the wind. But in this frame, it seems to me this is more of a final act amalgamation of the other three elementals instead of a separate entity.
I also want to point out the hair color of the woman shooting at the earth elemental next to Fury is the same as Maria Hill in this still. So it does look like that my earlier speculation of it being Jessica Drew was wrong.
Here’s to hoping she does show up though.
I also want to mention that this scene in the trailer is the first time I noticed that Carol Danvers was recognized as Captain Marvel within the universe.
This is an interesting part here.
It seems Quentin Beck is trying to become Peter’s new mentor, asking him what he wants. Peter’s response? He just wants to spend time with MJ.
Cut to MJ knowing that Peter is Spider-Man and Peter trying to deny it.
Notice here that we get a great look at Becks wedding ring while in the bar. I don’t recall Beck being married in the comics but if he is, that could lead to great motivation for him.
This Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer states a few things:
- Thanos’ snap in Avenger’s Endgame opened up multiple universes
- Quentin Beck is actually from another one of these universes
- It alludes to the Elementals being from that same universe
It also goes into what it’s like to grow up.
Peter is reminded a few times of the need for someone to fill the void that has risen after Tony Stark’s death. With Fury reminding him that he’s been to space, it seems that Fury wants Peter to fill that void.
The problem is Peter still hasn’t come to terms with Tony’s death or his own death and resurrection. Add to this he’s only a Junior in high school, and we see he isn’t ready to make the choices that are being asked of him.
It’s a theme that I’m excited to see this film tackle.
The trailer ends with a funny scene as Happy Hogan tries to keep Peter’s friends safe. It’s nice to see that Happy will have more to do in this film, and that Betty Brant (Angourie Rice) has been more prominent in the trailers for Far From Home, alluding to she’ll be doing more as well.
