Sony and Marvel have released the first trailer for the sequel to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, called Spider-Man: Far From Home. Presumably set after the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, it shows off the latest adventures of Peter Parker as he and his classmates head overseas on a school trip. It also introduces Mysterio, a longtime Spider-Man rogues’ gallery villain, here played by Jake Gyllenhaal.
Sony Pictures also debuted the first poster for the film prior to debuting the trailer. It can be seen below.
The film will be the latest in a long line of live-action Spider-Man films, and it’s the second in Marvel’s larger cinematic universe. Sony has long held the rights to the Spider-Man character, starting with 2002’s Spider-Man and its sequels starring Tobey Maguire, which helped kick off the superhero craze in Hollywood.
The company rebooted the character with a new story and lead actor Andrew Garfield for a pair of films — Amazing Spider-Man and Amazing Spider-Man 2 — which earned mixed reviews. That changed in 2015, when Sony and Marvel Studios reached an agreement to bring the webhead over to the MCU, re-introducing him in Captain America: Civil War, played by yet another actor, Tom Holland. He subsequently appeared in his own film, Homecoming, as well as Avengers: Infinity War.
Holland says his Spider-Man will head up a trilogy of films, making this the middle installment. On its side, Sony has been at work to try to create its own live-action Spider-Man cinematic universe without him, spinning off films like Venom and Silver & Black, as well as a new animated Spider-Man film called Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which could kick off a franchise of its own.
Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into theaters on July 5th, 2019.
