We’re still six months out from “Avengers 4,” but we can breathe a sigh of relief knowing Peter Parker will somehow rebound after being finger-snapped out of existence in “Avengers: Infinity War.” That’s because he’ll be back in “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” the first trailer for which was finally unveiled today. Watch it above right now. Right now!
“Spider-Man: Far From Home” sees Peter Parker and his high school friends taking a trip to Europe during their summer vacation, where Peter finds himself up against a new supervillain: Mysterio. It marks the first-ever live-action appearance of one of Spider-Man’s earliest enemies, created in 1963 by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
The trailer plays pretty similarly to how “Homecoming” did, giving off a teen comedy sort of vibe. But the fun comes to a halt midway through the teaser when Nick Fury appears suddenly to shoot Peter’s best friend Ned with a sleep dart — so he can recruit the young Spider-Man for some kind of mission while he’s in Europe.
From there we get a few brief glimpses of some new villains, the Elementals — like that water monster that fully flummoxes Spidey — and the mysterious Mysterio appearing out of nowhere to…save the day?
The trailer is light on plot, so for now it’s tough to know what to make of all that. And if you were hoping for some kind of clue about “Avengers: Endgame,” well, sorry. There’s no mention here of that whole thing.
The Elementals are a quartet of ancient beings who have complete mastery of the four elements — earth, wind, fire and water — and we see all four in play in the form of that rock monster, the fire dude, that previously mentioned giant water person, and the violent lightning storm that Spider-Man glides through. For a deeper dive on Mysterio and the Elementals, you can check out our closer look right here.
Tom Holland returns as Peter Parker — Holland actually debuted the trailer via Instagram Live — with Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio. The film also sees the return of Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Zendaya, and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, joined this time out by Cobie Smulders as ex-S.H.E.I.L.D. agent Maria Hill, and Samuel L. Jackson as former head of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury.
Meanwhile, “Spider-Man: Far From Home” comes out July 5, two months after whatever the fourth “Avengers” movie ends up being called. Which means you’ve probably got as many questions as we do, especially since we also have “Captain Marvel” hitting theaters first.

Go here for what we think Doctor Strange saw in the one version of the future in which the Avengers defeat Thanos. Meanwhile, we wonder if this is who Annette Bening is playing in “Captain Marvel.” And if you need it, here’s what happened in the comic book version of the “Infinity War” story.
