Peter Parker tours Europe in a series of new Spider-Man: Far From Home posters. Despite suffering a tragic death at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, Your Friendly Neighborhood remains in the plans for the Marvel Cinematic Universe's future. This July, the character headlines his next standalone film, which sees Peter and his friends embark on a summer vacation that's interrupted by Nick Fury. Back in January, Sony started up the marketing campaign earlier this year by releasing the film's first trailer, which showcased Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio.
Obviously, the MCU's focus right now is on Avengers: Endgame and the culmination of the 22-film Infinity Saga they've been working on since 2008. However, a little over three months remain until Far From Home is scheduled to hit theaters (as of this writing), which means sooner or later that film will have to get some of the spotlight too. Fans are still waiting for the next preview, but for now there are a few more one-sheets to check out.
Today, Sony unveiled a trio of new posters, which feature Spider-Man in various locations around Europe. The artwork depicts the hero in London, Venice, and Berlin. Check them out in the space below:
Like many of the earlier Far From Home advertising materials, these posters look to highlight the film's European setting, which is different from any of the other standalone Spider-Man movies before. Most of the previous Spidey films have based their action in New York City (even last year's Into the Spider-Verse), so it'll be fun to see Peter Parker explore new environments and what kind of set pieces director Jon Watts came up with. It goes without saying Europe has no shortage of iconic landmarks (which the posters emphasize), and any of them would make gorgeous backdrops for a sequence or two. Since there are apparently multiple locations Peter and friends will be visiting, hopefully each country gets a standout moment.
It'll be interesting to see when the next Far From Home trailer comes out. Normally, the release of posters is a clue that a new theatrical preview is right around the corner (see: John Wick 3 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood last week), but Marvel operates differently. Though Sony is in charge of Far From Home marketing, perhaps there's an agreement in place to coordinate the unveiling of advertising materials. Since Endgame is the priority, there's a chance fans won't get another proper look at Spider-Man until after Endgame comes out - much like how the second Endgame trailer debuted one week after Captain Marvel. Regardless, Sony is doing what they can to keep Far From Home at the forefront of people's minds.
