Less than a fortnight after the release of 'Avengers: Endgame', which still continues to break hearts and records, Marvel has already released a new trailer of 'Spiderman: Far from Home' and this will be the web-slinger's fifth appearance in the MCU. Said to be the last movie of Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige himself, 'Far from Home' offers the world a glimpse of what happens post 'Endgame' while also introducing us to new allies and foes. Here's what we know about the movie so far.
'Spiderman: Far From Home' will hit theatres on July 2 this year
According to the official synopsis, shortly after the events of 'Avengers: Endgame', Peter Parker goes on a vacation trip to Europe with his friends. But while abroad, he is recruited by Nick Fury to team up with Quentin Beck, who appears out of a tear in the Multiverse caused by the Decimation, in order to battle The Elementals.
Tom Holland will be back as Peter Parker, the friendly neighborhood Spiderman with Marisa Tomei as Aunt May. Jacob Batalon will reprise his role as Ned, Peter's best buddy, while Zendaya returns as Michelle "MJ" Jones, Peter's love interest in the movie. Samuel L Jackson and Cobie Smulders return as Nick Fury and Maria Hill. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Quentin Beck aka Mysterio, a foe in the comics, but now an ally from another universe after 'the snap' ruptures the time and space continuum. 'Spider-Man' co-creator Stan Lee is also set to have a posthumous cameo in the film.
Jon Watts ('Spiderman: Homecoming') will helm the movie which is written by Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna ('Jumanji: Welcome to the jungle', 'Ant-Man and the Wasp')

The first trailer shows Peter Parker prepare to go on a Europe trip with his pals and the young hero gets to know MJ better until Nick Fury comes calling with a mission — Stop The elementals. In Mysterio, Parker gets a new ally as the duo take on the fresh breed of supervillains.

The second trailer gives out more information about Mysterio and how he uses Spiderman to help stop The Elementals. The trailer also sees Peter trying to come to terms with Tony Starks death from 'Endgame' and the first hints of the multiverse are shown. Plus, it does look like MJ's put two-and-two together and realized that Peter was Spiderman all along.
As a part of promotions for his film 'Spider-man: Far From Home' actor Tom Holland visited South Korea. During his visit, the actor who portrays the titular role in the Marvel movie visited the children's ward of Seoul National University Hospital where he spent time with children in his super suit. According to The Korea Times, Holland toured all eight wards, two on each floor, meeting children in hallways and even entering patients' rooms to meet those who could not get out of bed.
According to a report in Variety, Tom Holland's 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' is off to a great start as it recorded $39.2 million in box office collection at 4,634 North American locations on opening day. The film released on July 2 in the U.S. Coincidentally, the record for highest ticket sales on a Tuesday was previously held by the Andrew Garfield-led 'The Amazing Spider-Man,' which recorded a $35 million in box office collections.
The biggest challenge for Peter in 'Far from Home' is to figure out what it means to be "The next Iron Man". And there does seem to be a few instances of time travel again as we see Peter wear close to four new suits. The original suit from 'Spiderman: Homecoming', the new Iron Spider suit that Stark upgrades him in 'Avengers: Endgame', a black suit with goggles and, of course, the new black and red suit seen in the first trailer.
