Spider-Man: 12 Spoilers From The 'Far From Home' Trailers (And 8 Lingering Questions)

While Avengers: Endgame marked the end of an era and truly felt like the perfect conclusion to the past eleven years of epic superhero blockbusters, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is far from over. In fact, the massive crossover event wasn't even the final film of the MCU's Phase 3! That honor belongs to Spider-Man: Far From Homethe second solo film featuring Tom Holland's beloved portrayal of the friendly neighborhood wall-crawler, which will debut on July 2.

Spidey was one of Thanos' many casualties in Infinity War, and shortly after he was brought back in this year's sequel, he was forced to watch helplessly as his mentor Tony Stark sacrificed his life to stop the Mad Titan. Far From Home will take place immediately after the events of the latest Avengers film, and will see Peter Parker try to take a vacation from the dangerous life of a superhero and figure out how to move on in a world without Iron Man.

Marvel typically tries to keep their films' big surprises a secret, but the Far From Home trailers were filled with juicy spoilers about what fans can expect from the highly-anticipated film. Luckily, there are still a few questions we likely won't see answered until it hits theaters later this summer. Here are Spider-Man: 12 Spoilers From The 'Far From Home' Trailers (And 8 Lingering Questions).

20 SPOILER: ALL OF PETER'S CLASSMATES WERE CASUALTIES OF THE SNAP

via: youtube.com

When Bruce Banner snapped his fingers to undo Thanos' elimination of half of the galaxy's population, those who had dissolved to ash five years prior were revived at the same age they were when they initially perished. Fans were glad to see the return of so many beloved characters, but it raised some serious questions about Peter Parker's classmates.

If any of Peter's friends weren't casualties of the Mad Titan's snap, they'd now be in their twenties and far removed from high school. Viewers were worried that some of Peter's friends wouldn't be his age anymore, but the Far From Home trailer proves that MJ, Ned and even Flash will still be Peter's peers.

19 SPOILER: PETER WILL TRY AND FAIL TO TAKE A VACATION

via: ign.com

Peter spent five years as a pile of ash on the distant planet of Titan and was forced to engage in an epic battle for the fate of all existence the moment he was brought back to life. He definitely deserves a break from the dangerous life of Spider-Man, and we're glad to see that in Far From Home, he'll finally get the chance to just be a normal teenager alongside his best friends.

Unfortunately, his international vacation is going to get hijacked by Nick Fury. Trailers reveal that the former head of S.H.I.E.L.D. will repeatedly try to contact Peter, and when he gets tired of the teenager dodging his calls, Fury will show up and force him to get back to work as Spider-Man.

18 LINGERING QUESTION: WHAT DOES AUNT MAY THINK ABOUT PETER'S DANGEROUS HOBBY?

via: youtube.com

At the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Aunt May walks in on Peter while he's still wearing his Spider-Man costume and understandably freaks out. The film closes on her swearing at the alarming realization that her teenage nephew is a superhero that risks his life every day, and fans were distraught that the two latest Avengers films didn't address her feelings about Peter's dangerous hobby.

The Far From Home trailers don't really address May's reaction to Peter being Spider-Man, either. In one shot, she stands proud beside the masked hero, which makes it seem like she'll be perfectly fine with Peter putting his life on the line on a daily basis. Surely there will be more to the story than that.

17 SPOILER: MJ FIGURES OUT PETER IS SPIDEY

via: youtube.com

The Vulture was able to piece together that Peter Parker is actually Spider-Man in Homecoming, and in the sequel, another major character will apparently put two and two together. During a conversation with MJ in a trailer for the film, Pete's dry and sarcastic friend outright tells him that she knows he's the iconic web-slinger.

This is definitely a major plot spoiler, and one that fans didn't expect Marvel to drop on us in a trailer. But, like MJ went on to say, Peter does make it pretty obvious that he's Spider-Man. It makes sense that the incredibly observant Academic Decathlon leader figured it out.

16 LINGERING QUESTION: IS MYSTERIO REALLY A HERO?

via: youtube.com

When Jake Gyllenhaal was first cast as Far From Home's Quentin Beck, Spider-Man fans understandably assumed that Mysterio would be the film's primary villain. After all, the master of illusions and frequent Sinister Six member is one of Spidey's most notorious antagonists.

That's why everyone's jaws dropped when Nick Fury actually introduced Peter Parker to Beck in the first trailer for the film. It looks like Mysterio will actually fight alongside Spider-Man as a fellow villain, but comic book fans are still hesitant to believe he's not secretly up to something.

15 SPOILER: PETER WILL BE FIGHTING HIS "ELEMENTAL" ROGUES

via: ign.com

Since Mysterio will apparently be an ally in Far From Home, the film is in need of some bad guys for Spidey to fight against and trailers prove that some of the wall-crawler's elemental villains will serve that role.

We've seen a gigantic lava creature that resembles Molten Man, a being with the powers of Sandman, and a massive water humanoid who could definitely be Hydro-Man. It's still unclear if the film will explore the human alter-egos of those classic comic villains or if they'll simply be mindless monsters, but the "Elementals" will undoubtedly be fun to watch either way.

14 SPOILER: THE WORLD KNOWS ABOUT TONY STARK'S SACRIFICE

via: youtube.com

Despite the combined efforts of the Avengers and their allies, Thanos still acquired the new Infinity Gauntlet which Earth's Mightiest Heroes assembled via their "time heist" in Endgame and was seconds away from rewriting all of existence with it. Luckily, Tony Stark snatched the Infinity Stones away from the Mad Titan at the last moment and snapped his own fingers, causing Thanos and his entire army to dissolve into ash.

This move cost Iron Man his life, but as Doctor Strange assured Tony, it was the only way to save countless lives across the universe. Trailers for Far From Home thankfully prove that the world will know all about Tony's heartbreaking sacrifice, and that Peter won't be alone in trying to honor his legacy.

13 LINGERING QUESTION: IS A MCU MULTIVERSE OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED?

via: nerdist.com

While explaining the rules of time travel to Bruce Banner in Endgame, the Ancient One made it clear that even the slightest deviation from a particular timeline could result in the creation of alternate realities and universes. In Marvel Comics, there are hundreds of different universes to explore which contain different versions of well-known heroes, and it seems like the MCU is going to start exploring them.

Mysterio will apparently claim that the events of Endgame opened some sort of rift that allowed him to travel to Peter Parker's Earth from an alternate universe. If the MCU does explore this potential multiverse, they may be able to use it to explain the sudden appearance of newly-Disney characters like the X-Men and the Fantastic Four or bring back fallen characters like Loki, Vision, or Quicksilver. Or Quentin Beck could simply be lying about his origins.

12 SPOILER: SPIDER-MAN WILL DON A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT SUITS

via: youtube.com

Peter Parker has certainly come a long way from his original Spider-Man costume made out of boring red and blue sweats. We didn't think Tony Stark could top the high-tech suit he gave Peter in Civil War until we saw the Iron Spider suit in Infinity War, and it seems like he made several other amazing options for his young protege before his tragic sacrifice.

In Far From Home trailers, Peter briefly wears an all-black Spider-Man costume that might make him a more stealthy hero for his missions with Nick Fury. He also dons a new uniform that replaces his typical blue secondary color with black.

11 LINGERING QUESTION: WHAT DOES PETER SEE IN TONY'S GLASSES?

via: youtube.com

One particularly interesting moment in the latest Far From Home trailer shows Peter briefly trying on a pair of Tony Stark's glasses and looking incredibly surprised at whatever he sees while looking through them.

In the comics, Tony has used an A.I. hologram of himself to advise his fellow heroes and operate his Iron Man suit when his body was physically unable to do so. Endgame showed film Tony's mastery of holographs, so is it possible that Peter sees his mentor through these glasses, allowing Robert Downey Jr. to stay in the Marvel Cinematic Universe despite his character's passing?

10 SPOILER: NICK FURY HAS FOUND HIS NEW PROJECT

via: youtube.com

In all of his interactions with Tony Stark back in Iron Man 2, it seemed like Nick Fury disliked the genius billionaire playboy philanthropist and didn't consider him a worthy member of the Avengers Initiative. Now, fans believe that he was just hard on Tony in an attempt to push him to become the hero the world needed and that his criticism was necessary to help Tony mature into the Iron Man who saved the universe.

Since Tony saved billions of lives in Endgame, it's clear that Fury picked the right guy to turn into his personal project, and Far From Home trailers seem to imply that Peter Parker will be the new hero Fury will try to push to reach his full potential.

9 SPOILER: MYSTERIO SEEMINGLY HAS POWERS HE DOESN'T HAVE IN THE COMICS

via: youtube.com

Spider-Man has a very long list of exceptionally powerful villains whom he regularly faces off against, but Mysterio has never really been a particularly threatening adversary. The master of illusions doesn't share Rhino's strength, Electro's manipulation of electricity, or Lizard's animal savagery... he is just an expert in the field of special effects.

In the comics, Quentin Beck is merely a disgraced Hollywood stunt man who uses his special effects skills to commit crimes. In Far From Home, however, it looks like he'll be able to fly and command magic on par with Doctor Strange's! While it's possible that these "abilities" could still be special effects, if they are, they're still much more impressive than the ones Mysterio is typically known to use.

8 LINGERING QUESTION: COULD AUNT MAY MOVE ON WITH HAPPY HOGAN?

via: themarvelreport.com

The comic book version of Peter's Aunt May has always appeared to be a sweet old woman, but the May we were first introduced to in Captain America: Civil War was absolutely stunning. Tony Stark couldn't help himself from flirting with her, and everyone in Queens seemed to follow suit in Spider-Man: Homecoming. 

In Far From Home, Happy Hogan will find himself similarly unable to ignore Aunt May actress Marisa Tomei's beauty and will share an adorable yet completely awkward moment with her right in front of Peter. Happy and May Parker don't date in the comics, but it looks like the films may give her a chance to move on from her husband Ben's passing with Tony Stark's former bodyguard.

7 SPOILER: THE FILM WILL TAKE PLACE ALL OVER THE WORLD

via: youtube.com

Peter Parker may wish he could just remain a "friendly neighborhood Spider-Man," but now that he's been to space and fought alongside the Avengers to determine the fate of all existence, he can't really go back to fighting common criminals in Queens. His adventures in Far From Home will take him all over Europe, putting a serious damper on his junior year "vacation."

Landmarks seen in trailers for the upcoming film reveal that Spidey will fight in England, Venice, Prague, and likely several other countries as he swings his way through Europe.

6 LINGERING QUESTION: WHAT'S GOING ON WITH VULTURE AND SCORPION?

via: ign.com

When Spider-Man crashed a deal between Adrian Toomes and Mac Gargan in Homecoming, the criminal fated to become Sinister Six-staple Scorpion found himself in the same prison as the Vulture. Gargan asked Toomes to tell him the wall-crawler's secret identity, but in a surprising act of loyalty to Spider-Man for saving his life, Vulture refused.

Sadly, none of the Far From Home trailers have shown signs of either Vulture or Scorpion appearing in the film. Will they spend the sequel off-screen plotting their revenge against Peter, or will one of the villains escape their cell and come after Spider-Man?

5 SPOILER: PETER IS OFFICIALLY CRUSHING ON MJ

via: youtube.com

Peter Parker spent the bulk of his first solo movie pining over Liz, but his would-be romance with his fellow Academic Decathlon member was cut short upon discovering that she was the Vulture's daughter. In Far From Home, he's going to finally fall for someone with a bit less baggage—Michelle.

Michelle, who is now going by "MJ," seems like she's going to be the MCU's version of Mary Jane Watson, Peter Parker's most iconic love interest. So it's definitely appropriate that he'll spend the film trying to win her over and we'd be surprised if they aren't a couple by the time the end credits roll.

4 SPOILER: SPIDEY WON'T BE ABLE TO STOP HIS VILLAINS FROM LEVELING CITIES

via: youtube.com

Spider-Man is one of the most powerful and capable superheroes on the planet, but he's not always able to stop some of his more formidable adversaries. Looking at the scenes of destruction in Far From Home trailers, it's pretty clear that Spidey's best efforts won't keep the Elementals from causing some major damage throughout Europe.

The trailers are filled with images of leveled cities, and it's hard to believe there wouldn't be a few casualties in all of that wreckage. Maybe Nick Fury should have tried harder to recruit some Avengers to fight alongside his teenage hero-in-training.

3 LINGERING QUESTION: WILL ANY OTHER AVENGERS FIGHT ALONGSIDE SPIDER-MAN?

via: cinemablend.com

Speaking of Avengers joining the fight alongside Spider-Man, rumors spread last year that Doctor Strange might appear from Far From Home. They were quickly shot down, but Marvel's recent trend of throwing Earth's Mightiest Heroes into other characters' solo films has fans expecting at least one of the Avengers to make a surprise cameo appearance.

Since Molten Man, Sandman, and Hydro-Man can all grow to enormous sizes and command some seriously destructive elements, it's hard to believe that Nick Fury and Maria Hill wouldn't be able to find a single hero to help Peter out. If they can interrupt a high school student's vacation, surely they could call in a favor from Scarlet Witch or Falcon.

2 SPOILER: THE ELEMENTALS WILL MERGE IN A CLIMACTIC BATTLE

via: youtube.com

Marvel may have dropped the biggest spoiler of all with this image, as it seems to feature a villain with the combined powers of the Elemental villains and spoil Far From Home's greatest battle. This will surely be Spider-Man's final confrontation with the antagonists, and they'll merge together in an attempt to finally take down the web-slinging hero.

A massive monster with mastery over water, sand, and fire will undoubtedly be tough for Peter (and apparently Mysterio) to contend with and provide an epic CGI climax for the film.

1 LINGERING QUESTION: ARE THE ELEMENTAL VILLAINS EVEN REAL?

via: collider.com

Marvel has done their best to convince viewers that Mysterio will be a hero from another universe who is ready to help Spider-Man save the world from the Elementals, but we're not buying it. It's definitely possible that he's still going to be Far From Home's ultimate villain.

The Elementals may just be special effect creations designed to help him earn recognition as a hero when he takes down the monsters he created. Mysterio's initial comic book appearances had him use his Hollywood wizardry to make everyone think he was a hero, so viewers should keep an eye on Quentin Beck.
