Why The Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer Still Hasn't Released Yet

The first Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer isn't out yet, despite being rated, so why is that? The first Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer was screened at CCXP earlier this month and two different trailers have been submitted for rating and approved for broadcast, yet two projected release dates have come and gone with nothing official showing up online.

A direct follow-up to the Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios joint production Spider-Man: Homecoming, Far From Home is shaping up to be one of the greatest films of 2019. Tom Holland will return in the role of Peter Parker, whose superheroic alter-ego Spider-Man will be recruited for a special mission by Nick Fury himself. Details on the story so far are limited, but it has been suggested that the wall-crawler will be teaming with a new character called Mysterio to fight against a group of immortal beings called Elementals.

Spider-Man: Far From Home's trailer is the third Marvel trailer that was expected to release this month, and since it's the first movie to take place in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame, fans were curious as to how it would address Spider-Man's death in Avengers: Infinity War. Even though Spider-Man: Far From Home is another chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it still needs to be marketed for general audiences to develop an interest in it. So why hasn't the trailer released yet?

Spider-Man: Far From Home's Trailer Was Expected To Release In Early December

The first Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer was rumored to be arriving sometime in December 2018. There were a number of good, logical reasons for this speculation. The first was that the trailer would have been perfectly paired with Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse - Sony's animated feature built around an all-star team of spider-themed heroes from around the Marvel Comics multiverse. Beyond that, the trailer would reach a larger audience during the holiday moviegoing season and have a better chance of reaching its core demographic appearing before films like Aquaman and Bumblebee. Plus, the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming - which also hit theaters in July - debuted the previous December, so everything was falling in-line.

The first Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer was going to release on December 8, following its unveiling at Comic Con Experience Convention (CCXP) in San Paulo, Brazil. While the trailer did debut there, the online release did not. It was rumored that the online release may have been delayed to coincide with the U.S. release of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse on December 14; however, that date also came and went with no new trailer release.

Two Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailers Have Been Rated

One bit of vexing news for fans is that Sony Pictures has created not one, but two Spider-Man: Far From Home trailers and submitted them for an official rating. A regular, domestic trailer for North American audiences was confirmed as approved by Consumer Protection BC, signaling that the trailer is ready for airing in Canada. A separate international trailer has also been confirmed as existing and being rated officially. (This is actually standard practice for many studios, with hardly if any new footage being found in the international trailers.) Yet in all of this news of two different trailers being out there, and being ready for public perusal, no new release date has been announced. This has left Spider-Man fans around the world asking one big question: why the delay?
