Above we have two brand new TV spots that have hit for the almost upon us Spider-Man: Far From Home. The second MCU Spider-Man film will stand as the bookend to Marvel’s Infinity Saga and the end of Phase 3 and it hits theaters on July 5 in the US, a day earlier in Europe.
From the trailers and TV spots, we have already seen we know a little about what to expect from Spidey’s next outing. The two TV spots above focus on different narratives being explored within the movie. The first focuses on Tony Stark’s legacy and the hole he has left in Peter’s life by his sacrifice in Endgame. Fury tells Peter that Stark chose him to follow in his footsteps and Happy tells him that Stark wouldn’t have done what he did if he didn’t know Peter was there to take over.
With Far From Home taking place not long after the funeral of Stark, it sets the stage for the way the world is dealing with the loss of Iron Man and how Peter has to grow up and take on the responsibility. Of course, Peter is still just a kid in the movies and we also have that more typically self-focussed teenager Peter in the second TV spot worrying about having fun in Europe with his friends and telling MJ how he feels about her.
These two aspects of Peter’s story will clash as Fury recruits Peter for a secret mission to help Quentin Beck defeat some bad guys they are calling The Elementals, but seems to be based on the likes of Hydro Man, Sandman and Molten Man from the comics.

I’ll guess that Peter will start looking up to Beck as a father figure and a replacement for Stark, only to later find out he has been looking after himself. Peter will then have to take on that mantle of hero to stop the Elementals and likely Beck/Mysterio himself. I can’t wait to see how it all works in a couple weeks’ time and I’ll be seeing the movie opening weekend barring anything unexpected.
