Spider-Man: Far From Home gets a new IMAX poster that shows off two of Peter Parker's Spider suits in the film. In addition to being a Homecoming sequel, Far From Home marks the official conclusion to Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie picks up shortly after the events of Avengers: Endgame, when Peter is still grieving Tony Stark's death and adjusting to life in a world where Thanos' snap happened five years ago. Needless to say, Peter could use a break, and jumps at the chance to take a vacation to Europe with his friends (who were also "dusted" by Thanos and, as a result, are still in high school when the sequel begins).
However, with Iron Man and the original Avengers no longer in the picture, it falls to Peter to step up when trouble comes a-knockin' on his trip. Specifically, he's recruited by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to battle mysterious creatures known as Elementals, with the assistance of Quentin Beck aka. Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) - a fellow who claims to be another dimension. Fortunately, as the film's new poster highlights, Peter will have a couple of different Spider suits to help him along the way.
Fat From Home's IMAX one-sheet features two such Spider suits, in the forms of Peter's (Tom Holland) regular costume and his new stealth suit. You can check out the poster, below.
It's been confirmed that Fury gives Peter his stealth suit in Far From Home, as a way to try and keep his secret identity, well, secret. And while it's a good thought, the film's trailers and TV spots have revealed that MJ (Zendaya) eventually puts two and two together, and realizes that Spider-Man didn't just happen to show up in Europe while Peter was there. The stealth suit doesn't have all the bells and whistles that Peter's regular Spider outfit comes with either, much less the advanced tech that's built into his Iron Spider suit (which he will also wear at certain points in the movie). That means Peter may have to be smarter about how he fights the Elementals and/or Mysterio - when he doesn't have one of his more advanced super-suits to fall back upon, anyway.
Similarly, the hope is that director Jon Watts (returning from Homecoming) will find clever ways of integrating Peter's Spider suits into Far From Home's action scenes. The film already looks to take advantage of its scenic European backdrops and deliver set pieces that are unlike those in Spider-Man movies past, which is encouraging. By having Peter suit up in a collection of different costumes along the way, the hope is that Far From Home's Spider-battles will all have their own unique feeling and style, and avoid blurring together. If it can manage that task, the Spider-Man sequel may yet succeed in closing out the MCU's run on this big screen this year (not to mention, Phase 3 in general) on a satisfying note.
