Spider-Man Far From Home

Spider-Man Far From Home - Elemental

At a completely different time and place, the fire Elemental makes an appearance, looking like some kind of lava monster. It explodes out of a hardened, molten egg. But where did it come from?

There are two shots like this that are completely out of place with no indication as to what’s going on. Some armed gunmen are busting into some kind of upscale restaurant. Could this be tied to whatever mission Nick Fury needs Spider-Man to help with in Venice? Does this all somehow lead to the fire Elemental?

Spider-Man Far From Home - Stealth Spider-Man

Here’s our first official look at the stealth Spider-Man suit, and it looks like there’s some fire there in the background, so maybe it’s also part of the fire Elemental monster reveal. You’ll also see that Nick Fury and Maria Hill are standing there in the background.

The third Elemental we see appears to be Hydron, Lord of Waters. However, there’s also a chance that this could be Hydro Man. Either way, this appears to be the first encounter that Peter Parker has with these strange creatures.

Spider-Man Far From Home - Tom Holland as Peter Parker

Peter Parker is wearing street clothes and a backpack like any American tourist in Italy, and he gets blasted by this water creature, proving to be too much for him to handle. Without the Spider-Man suit, what’s he supposed to do?

Spider-Man Far From Home - Mysterio

It turns out he doesn’t have to worry about it for long, because Jake Gyllenhaal shows up and knows exactly how to deal with this nonsense. He tells Peter, “You don’t want any part of this.”

Spider-Man Far From Home - Mysterio

Jake Gyllenhaal is playing Mysterio, a signature Spider-Man villain who uses intricate special effects to make it look like he has super powers. At least, that’s what the character known as Quentin Beck does in the comics. There’s a good chance that’s the case in the movie, and somehow these Elementals are creations of his own that he can somehow control while making it look like he’s fighting them, not unlike the robot that Syndrome controls and pretends to defeat in The Incredibles.

Spider-Man Far From Home - Mysterio

It would appear that Mysterio has done his homework if these powers of his are completely fake, because he’s taken a cue from Doctor Strange to make it look like he’s using similar magic to battle these Elementals. You can see certain symbols and shapes that we’ve seen Strange conjure before. So if this is fake, Mysterio did a good job making it look real.

Meanwhile, back at the hostel, Peter’s classmates are keeping up with the news of Mysterio fighting these weird creatures. One of the classmates says he’s like Iron Man and Thor. But one of the kids doesn’t care.

I love that Flash Thompson (Tony Revolori) defends Spider-Man and loves him so much. It makes his treatment of Peter Parker all the more ironic, as we see when he calls Peter Parker a dickwad.

Peter Parker gives the perfect sarcastic thumbs up back to him, knowing that he’s the real winner here as the object of Flash’s superhero affection.

That’s all for the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer breakdown. There were plenty of details to take notice of, but we still have a lot of questions since the story of the Elementals and the involvement of Mysterio still remains unclear. We know the villain and Spider-Man will be working together at first, but there’s going to be a big turn somewhere. Hopefully more details will arrive sooner than later.

Spider-Man: Far From Home arrives on July 5, 2019.
