Oddly enough, a lot of people are complaining about the fact that Sony has already dropped the first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home on us, which no spoilers — shows us Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man/Peter Parker.
Yes, Avengers: Infinity War left things in an interesting place for Marvel, but that doesn’t mean that the global marketing machine is going to stop. That also doesn’t mean that the sequel to Jon Watts‘ Spider-Man: Homecoming takes place after “The Snappening”.
And if it does, who really cares? If you honestly thought that Marvel (and more importantly, Sony) was going to kill off one of the most popular comic book characters, after two reboots, then ya’ll be as crazy as Jamie Foxx‘s Electro.
What this latest Spidey-Film offers us is a refreshing change of scenery, with Peter Parker traveling abroad with some classmates and friends, only to have his vacation rudely cut short by good ol’ Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).
Jake Gyllenhaal‘s Mysterio doesn’t initially look like the main bad guy here, but I’m sure things will change or maybe we’re in for more surprises than we thought?
All I know is that Sony is really trying to establish their own cinematic universe and after the success of Homecoming and more importantly, Venom, you damn well better believe that they have a lot riding on Far From Home.
I’m definitely looking forward to seeing it, but I’m still indifferent about these new solo Spider-Films, but I do enjoy watching him mix and mingle with The Avengers.
