This globetrotting first look sees Peter and friends venture to Venice and London, marking the first time that we’ve seen Spider-Man go to a friendly neighbourhood that isn't his own. Based on this footage the film seems to be continuing the high-school comedy feel of its predecessor, Spider-Man Homecoming, showcasing more of the back and forth between Holland’s Peter Parker and Zendaya’s MJ.
However, the biggest part of this trailer is the reveal of Mysterio, a famous nemesis of Spider-Man’s from the comics – now played by Jake Gyllenhaal. Mysterio swoops in to save the day, with one character going as far as to say that ‘he’s like Iron Man and Thor rolled into one.’ In the comics, the man behind Mysterio is a special-effects guru called Quentin Beck, who realizes that he could put his technical prowess to criminal use. This begs the question as to how much we can trust his apparent heroism here.
With Avengers: Endgame coming out on 26 April, fans will be scouring this trailer for clues as to how that film ends, as Spider-Man: Far From Home is the first film to follow that supposed finale. While it is possible that Far From Home could take place before Infinity War, the absence from this trailer of Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark will be seen as an ominous sign for his fate.
