New images from Spider-Man: Far From Home feature Peter Parker's (Tom Holland) two new suits and his team-up with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). All eyes may currently be on Avengers: Endgame's rapidly approaching release, but it won't be that long after it debuts that the next entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe arrives. Spider-Man: Far From Home will pick up minutes after the ending to Avengers: Endgame, making it the first Phase 4 MCU film.
Thanks to this placement, Marvel Studios and Sony have been put in a difficult position when it comes to marketing Spider-Man: Far From Home. As of right now, Spider-Man is still among the half of the universe's population that was turned to dust at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, and how he returns - and what the state of the MCU will be once he does - is likely a spoiler for Avengers: Endgame. Sony has still continued to promote their big summer blockbuster, but they've also refrained from showing off too much. What we have seen is plenty of Peter's overseas summer vacation and that he'll be recruited by Fury to stop the Elementals.
The lone trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home officially revealed the new suits that Peter was previously seen wearing on set, and now USA Today has provided two new images that feature them. The first image puts Peter in a brand new red and black suit, and he appears to be preparing to take Michelle (Zendaya) somewhere. The second image only shows the back of his all-black stealth/tactical suit, which has the eye goggles flipped up. This photo shows Peter meeting with Nick Fury and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), potentially prepping for a mission.
This exact sequence of Michelle and Peter together was previously seen taking place on set, and the interaction between them has led many to wonder if MJ will learn that Peter is Spider-Man during Spider-Man: Far From Home. The suit looks fantastic regardless. The stealth suit is not prominently featured here, but Peter wearing it in a meeting with Fury and Hill could serve as further evidence that they (and S.H.I.E.L.D.) give him this new suit as part of their partnership.
Now that some official images have been released, many will now begin to wonder when the second trailer will arrive. There have been rumors that Sony and Marvel Studios are waiting until after Avengers: Endgame has been released to do so. Considering the first trailer was lacking on many story details, the second trailer may be prepared to let more information out of the bag - but these details may be spoilers themselves for Avengers: Endgame. The wait for a second trailer isn't even being felt at the moment thanks to the attention the end of Phase 3 is getting anyways. But, with a now slightly earlier release date set, Sony is likely itching to kick the marketing into high gear, and these Spider-Man: Far From Home photos can help tide everyone over until that can happen.
