Sony Pictures Entertainment has released the first official trailer for the sequel to the wildly successful Marvel Studios film, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The new film sees Peter Parker taking a school trip to Europe where he’s recruited by Nick Fury to stop an international terrorist in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame.
Tom Holland is returning as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, with Zendaya and Marisa Tomei as “MJ” and Aunt May. Jake Gyllenhaal will play Mysterio while Michael Keaton is set to return as Adrian Toomes/The Vulture. New additions include comedian J.B. Smoove and Numan Acar as Dimitri, with Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders signed on to join the sequel as Nick Fury and Maria Hill respectively. Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters on July 5th.

It’s been rumored that classic Spider-Man villain, The Chameleon, would be showing up in Spider-Man: Far From Home, and now it seems we’re a little closer to that confirmation. Deadline is reporting that Numan Acar (Homeland) has been added to the cast of the sequel, though no details on his role have been revealed, we know that he’ll be playing a character named Dmitri, which could signify his role as Dmitri Smerdyakov, a.k.a. The Chameleon.
This is still speculation, but given the that Acar can speak numerous languages, and the globe-trotting nature of the film, it could certainly be true.
It would seem that Nick Fury has more to do after his return in Captain Marvel. Samuel L. Jackson has confirmed over on his Instagram that he’s in the United Kingdom, and that he’s making his return as Nick Fury. However, it looks like the former S.H.I.E.L.D. Director will be rocking some facial hair, confirming this role likely won’t involve Captain Marvel, but instead the currently filming friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
How the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. will play into the story has yet to be seen, but seeing as Spider-Man: Far From Home is the first film after Avengers 4, meant to lead us into a new chapter of the MCU, it makes sense to see the man that started it all.
Tom Holland has let slip another secret, which has since been confirmed by Kevin Feige. The official title for the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is now Spider-Man: Far From Home. The script is finished, and Tom Holland used that to reveal the title on Instagram video while at ACE Comic-Con Seattle, this weekend.
The title confirms the rumored globe-trotting adventure the film is set to consist of, with Jake Gyllenhaal playing Mysterio, and Michael Keaton reprising his role as the Vulture.
