'Spider-Man: Far From Home' has a brand new bag of villains, including the infamous Mysterio
With the release of the first trailer on January 15, fans got a glimpse of one of Spidey's more prominent antagonists, Mysterio!
Set to take place after the events of 'Infinity War', Tom Holland reprises his role for the second installment of what's said to be a Spider-Man trilogy. The first movie was all about Spider-Man coming to terms with his powers and bore no semblance to the comic book with the same title.
Though, in the comic book, we did get to see Spidey sport his sweet, black spider-suit (which we now know was actually Venom), 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' wanted to touch upon one of Spider-man's most primary villains, The Vulture. The movie did so without compromising the story arc, and also without making spidey do a silly dance like his predecessor (you know who you are).
While 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' had our web-slinger return home after the events of 'Civil War', 'Spider-Man: Far From Home', as mentioned, is set to take place after the whole 'Infinity War' arc is completed, thereby showing us our favorite wall-crawler will definitely be returning from the dead!
Things to watch out for in 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'
The hot-headed director of S.H.I.E.L.D, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), returns in this sequel along with Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), so they've also come back from the dead. We see Fury has now taken up the mentor role for Spider-Man, filling in for Tony Stark (who may not have survived the past cataclysmic event), and he's just as "furious" as ever (sorry, couldn't resist).
In what would be arguably one of the youngest, and not to mention the hottest remakes of Aunt May, Marissa Tomei is back, and this time there seems to be sparks flying between her and Harold 'Happy' Hogan (Jon Favreau). So, Spidey seems to be fighting a different battle alongside the one he usually fights - the only mother figure he's ever had is not paying him any mind. Also, May now knows he's Spider-Man, and we're waiting to see that development.
After the first appearance of Spidey's black suit in Spider-Man 3 (2007), the internet went crazy with what this could entail for our capeless-crusader. Though the black suit here was depicted as a symbiote (Venom), we see Spidey sporting a curious black suit in this trailer. While this suit closely resembles the Spider-Man Noir suit (minus the overcoat), it's safe to say this could be Spider-Man's new stealth suit, and with his ties to Tony Stark, it makes this suit all the more believable.
The Villains, of course:
Michael Keaton is taking up the role of Vulture again in this sequel, but it doesn't seem he'll be the main villain in this movie. Fans are introduced to what seems to be Sandman, Hydro-Man, and Molten Man, but again they seem to be small fry (if they exist at all) in comparison to Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal). It could be very well that Mysterio, using his powers, uses the other villains as a distraction, or as a way to win Spidey's trust by defeating them, for that is how his nature's been portrayed throughout his time as a villain in the Marvel Universe.
All-in-all, with Mysterio without his headgear, seemingly playing the good guy in the trailer, we're in for a lot of double-crosses in this new Marvel addition. 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' releases in theaters July 5. Take a look at the trailer below to see how the new villain looks!
