A Spider-Man: Far From Home set photo shared by director Jon Watts shows star Tom Holland's creative solution for drinking coffee while in costume. Super-suits might look cool, but they're not always practical when it comes to eating, drinking, or - as Shazam pointed out - peeing. Fortunately, it looks like Holland has come up with a creative solution for fueling up while wearing his new red-and-black spider-suit.
Picking up after the events of Avengers: Endgame and rounding out Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man: Far From Home sends Peter Parker on a well-deserved vacation to Europe, along with his classmates. Unfortunately his plans to relax and take some time off go awry when he's recruited by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to join new superhero Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) in the fight against some bad guys from another dimension: the Elementals. To aid in this mission, Peter gets two new spider-suits: a black stealth suit from Nick Fury, and a new red-and-black suit that Peter himself designs as an homage to Tony Stark.
One of the benefits of the red-and-black spider-suit is that, unlike the Iron Spider suit from Avengers: Infinity War (which was CGI), Holland can actually wear the costume on set. In one featurette he described the suit as like "wearing a work of art" - but there's one unfortunate drawback to it: no mouth hole. Fortunately, as this behind-the-scenes photo shows, Holland came up with a workaround so that he could save Europe from supervillains and get his coffee fix.
The "tonight" in the caption refers to the world premiere of Spider-Man: Far From Home in Los Angeles, ahead of the movie's wide release next week. The review embargo hasn't yet lifted, but early reactions from critics offered high praise for Holland's second solo outing as Spider-Man. As with most Marvel movies, Far From Home has two post-credits scenes that fans should stick around for, and it's expected that Marvel Studios will start officially revealing plans for the next phase of the MCU shortly after this movie's release.
Meanwhile, Avengers: Endgame is re-releasing in select theaters with the promise of new footage, so if you're fortunate enough to live near one of those theaters then it could make for the perfect double bill with Spider-Man: Far From Home. And if you need a fix of Spider-Man content while you wait for next weekend, be sure to check out Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which just made its way onto Netflix.
