A new Spider-Man: Far From Home TV spot features Mysterio inviting Peter Parker to save the world with him. In less than a month, Marvel Studios' final film of the year will hit theaters, coming in the aftermath of both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Directed by Jon Watts, it focuses on the friendly-neighborhood hero as he moves forward with his life after essentially coming back from the dead once Thanos' snap was undone.
Taking some time off for himself, Peter joins his schoolmates for a trip around Europe. Following the catastrophic end of his budding romance with Liz in Spider-Man: Homecoming, he gets back in the dating pool with MJ just as she begins figuring out he's actually Spider-Man. Soon, what is supposed to be a fun and relaxing trip is disrupted by Nick Fury coming to recruit Spider-Man for a new mission that will team him up with Quentin Beck aka Mysterio - allegedly a hero from another dimension. In a new spot for Far From Home, the two superheroes band together as they try to save the world.
With Far From Home's release nearing, Marvel and Sony are ramping up the marketing for the film with several new TV spots. Usually a mix of previously seen and never-before-seen bits, this 30-second clip features a string of new footage. This includes Aunt May and Peter's phone call talking about the "new guy," as well as Mysterio telling Peter: "let's save the world, Spider-Man." Check out the promo (via The Comical Universe) below:
Marketing materials for Far From Home have been leaning on Peter and Beck developing some sort of camaraderie throughout the film. However, Peter and Fury should keep their guard up around this newfound ally considering Mysterio is a conniving character in the comic books. Mysterio best known for his tricks and illusions and there's a good chance that he's using some of that here to manipulate Peter who, due to his emotional stress over Tony Stark's death, is more susceptible than ever. Holland also promises that there's a plot reveal in Far From Home that rivals that of the Vulture twist in Homecoming, which means that there's so much more than meets the eye in this film.
It's possible that Mysterio is telling the truth about the existence of the multi-universe and how the snap opened a portal that allows inter-dimensional hopping. After all, it's the natural narrative progression in the MCU with splintering timelines created by Endgame's time-travel rules. Having said that, it's still difficult to believe that Beck is the hero-type that he presents himself, especially since Marvel Studios tends to stick closely to their source material when adapting such big name characters. Whatever his secrets are, Peter and Fury need to be ready once the table is flipped on them in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
