Spider-Man Far From Home Easter Eggs And Breakdown For First Trailer
By Mat Elfring | @ImMatElfring on
After numerous days of waking up early, staying up late, and getting mad at the internet about over-speculation of its release, the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer is finally here! The friendly neighborhood web-slinger is heading to Europe, but wherever he goes, he tends to find trouble.
However, Spider-Man also seems to have a ton of help in the second Sony/Marvel movie. Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is here to help guide Parker along and Spidey finds a new ally in Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) as he battles giant, elemental monsters.
There hasn't been a lot of news released about the movie. We know it takes place after Infinity War/Endgame, Colbie Smolders returns as Maria Hill, and Peter Parker has been un-Thanos snapped. So this new teaser truly is our first real look at the new movie, which is one of three Marvel films set for 2019.
While this new trailer was a tad vague, it did give us a decent amount of insight into the film. Below, you'll find a breakdown of the Far From Home trailer, followed by some cool Easter eggs hidden throughout it.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will hit theaters on July 5, but before we can get some more web-slinging, Captain Marvel is coming on March 8. Recently, the third trailer for the Brie Larson-led movie was released, and it gives a bit of explanation to who and what the Skrulls are. Finally, sandwiched between these two movies is Avengers: Endgame. The fourth Avengers movie's first trailer was released in December, and it got everyone exceptionally pumped, especially Ant-Man fans. Endgame hits theaters on April 26.
Spider-Man Helping The Homeless
The trailer opens with Spidey at a Salvation Army event, helping the homeless, which Aunt May is hosting. Aside from kicking supervillain's butts, Spider-Man has seemed to step into the role of helping all those in need through community service as well as crime fighting, which is something that sets him apart from the rest of the heroes in the MCU.
Aunt May Knows Peter Is Spider-Man
If you think back to Spider-Man: Homecoming, you'll remember that Aunt May saw Peter in the Spider-Man costume during the mid-credit sequence. Now, she seems strangely ok with Peter as the webhead, as the two embrace each other.
Happy Hogan And Aunt May's Meet Cute
While it was established that Happy and May have met each other before in Homecoming, there is a little bit of awkward romantic chemistry going on between the two, and Peter watches it all unfold--much to his dismay
Peter Is Headed To Europe
As we already knew, Peter is going to Europe on vacation. The only new information here is that it's with his friends from school and not so much of an actual school trip. Even Flash will be there, and he calls Peter a "dickwad" later in the trailer, while praising Spider-Man in the same breath.
Spidey Is Staying At Home
Peter decides he needs a vacation from being Spider-Man as well. With that, he leaves his Spider-Man costume in his closet and closes the door. But how does he get it later on in the movie? Well, in the international trailer, you find out that Aunt May packed the superhero suit without Peter knowing, and an Italian customs agent spots it when going through his luggage.
Peter Meets Nick Fury
Surprise! Nick Fury and Spider-Man finally meet, after Fury invades his and Ned's room. Also, Ned gets shot with a tranquilizer dart. The rest of the trailer is pretty vague as to what Fury's role will be in the movie, but it seems like he'll be filling in for Tony Stark.
Maria Hill & Nick Fury Take On Magnum
Some people have been calling the monster in this scene "Sandman." Actor Tom Holland has stated the group of superpowered monsters he fights is "The Elementals," so Magnum--who will be played by Numan Acar--was the "Master of Earth" for that group, and so it stands to reason that's who the former members of SHIELD are fighting.
Here's Molten Man
While Far From Home will stick close to the comic roots for the Elementals, there have been some rumors that the character Hellfire--from the comics--will be replaced by Spider-Man villain Molten Man. There was an alleged leak of an upcoming Lego set which included Molten Man, and these leaks are usually a good indicator of what's happening in movies. Anyway, there's a quick shot of him--whoever he is--in all his fiery glory.
It's our first look at the Stealth Suit. Why does Peter have this suit? We don't know, but it looks exceptionally simple and almost like it was quickly pieced together. It looks as though he puts it on in the aftermath of a giant battle, as there is a bunch of destruction behind him.
Here's Hydro Man
Again, in the comics, the water Elemental member was Hydron, but because Hydro Man is such a predominant Spider-Man villain, he'll be switched in for this role. And again, there was an alleged leak for the movie via a Lego set which has Hydro Man in it. Anyway, he looks like a giant wave of water with a vague human form. It's perfect.
We finally get our first look at the Mysterio costume, and it looks fantastic. It's almost entirely based on the 616 version of the character, with nothing coming from the Ultimate version. The gold chestplate is an excellent addition, and he almost looks heroic.
Easter Eggs: Behind The Counter
The deli owner has a few images behind the counter, two of which are newspapers. Both of those stories are about how his deli was destroyed--in Homecoming--and how Spider-Man saved him. He also has two pictures, one with Spider-Man and one with former U.S. President Barack Obama.
Easter Eggs: Spider-Man's Birthdate
The Marvel cinematic universe doesn't have years, apparently. Or they don't print them on passports. On Peter's passport, you can clearly see Peter Parker's birthday is August 10.
Easter Eggs: The BFP
The suitcase Peter takes to Europe with him has "BFP" inscribed on it. This case originally belonged to Peter's late uncle and May's husband, Ben Parker.. What's the "F" stand for? Well, that we're not sure of, so let's just say "Francis."
Easter Eggs: How Mysterio Got His Name
We're going to make a couple assumptions here, but let's roll with it. Mysterio--more than likely--gets his name because of an Italian news report showing him battling a large water monster.
"Una creatura fatta d'acqua emerge dal canal grande e minaccia l'intera citta."
This translates to, "a creature made of water emerges from the big canal and threatens the whole city."
Under that is where we get his superhero/villain name: "L'uomo di misterio ha combattuto con la…"
This translates to "the mystery man fought with the…"
So, Mysterio's name is just "the mystery man" in Italian.
