Spider-Man: Far From Home is really going all-in on this early marketing blitz for a movie that doesn’t even come out until the beginning of July. Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zendaya, and a few other cast members from the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel have been making the rounds, jumping from Disneyland appearances to Jimmy Kimmel Live. The latter is where the cast debuted a new Spider-Man Far From Home clip where Peter Parker faces down his first Elemental in the form of Hydro Man. Read More »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe just got shaken up by the latest trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home, which dropped the major reveal that the MCU is just one of many alternate realities. This concept is not new to readers of Marvel Comics, who have become familiar with the concept of other Earths — mostly since Marvel uses it as leeway to create as many “alternate” titles as possible.
But the Marvel multiverse is entirely new to the MCU, which until now, had operated under the assumption that there was only one reality. Earth’s Mightiest Heroes had only recently discovered that they were not alone in the universe! But with the establishment of alternate realities, Spider-Man: Far From Home just opened up the door to infinite possibilities — or did it? It may turn out that the upcoming Spider-Man movie wasn’t the first to introduce the concept of the Marvel multiverse to the MCU after all.

Marvel fans have been buzzing about Spider-Man: Far From Home since the new trailer arrived, revealing the prominence that the multiverse seems to be playing in the plot of the sequel. And if the viewing numbers for the latest trailer are any indication, fans aren’t any less hungry for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the epic conclusion in Avengers: Endgame.
Spider-Man: Far From Home officially set a record for Sony Pictures Entertainment by being their biggest digital launch ever. The new trailer amassed the highest view count in the first 24 hours of its debut, which means fans will undoubtedly be flocking to theaters in July when the movie closes Phase Three of the MCU.

A studly magic-using superhero that looks like Jake Gyllenhaal? He could only exist in another universe. That’s exactly what is taking place in Spider-Man: Far From Home, in which Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio apparently travels from an alternate Earth in order to save the one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s a concept not unfamiliar to fans of the Marvel Comics, where there are alternate dimensions galore, each with their own numerical designation. And it looks like those numerical designations are making their way over to the MCU, according to a new Spider-Man Far From Home clip.

On the set of Spider-Man: Far From Home, a handful of journalists and I watched a scene being filmed in which Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan tries to protect Peter Parker’s high school friends from an unseen threat in the Tower of London. Glass cases were smashed, pyrotechnics were being utilized, and the kids – standing in a defensive pose, armed with ancient weapons they seemingly grabbed from exhibits in the Tower, but certain they were facing death in only a few short seconds – all began revealing their regrets and secrets. Some were funny (“I dream to be an influencer, but I buy all my followers,” admitted Flash Thompson), some were sad (“I have a fake ID, but I’ve never used it,” said Betty Brant), but Happy Hogan’s was the most surprising of them all.
Read on to find out what he said and to read our full Jon Favreau interview, who took some time away from filming to tell us about Happy’s role in this superhero sequel, managing his time between all of the projects he’s working on, and the possibility of an Iron Man 4. Read More »
One of the reasons Spider-Man: Homecoming felt so fresh was because it centers on a young Peter Parker who is still in the early years of high school. That film introduced us to Ned Leeds, Peter’s loyal best friend who quickly discovers Spider-Man’s secret identity and becomes Peter’s “guy in the chair.” Jacob Batalon returns as Ned in Spider-Man: Far From Home, and during a group phone interview, the actor told us about Ned’s new “whirlwind romance,” his relationship with Peter in this movie, his unexpected reaction to Peter’s dusting in Infinity War, and more.

“There’s a scene in this film where audiences will feel like they’ve been punched in the face,” Tom Holland tells our group of journalists on the London set of Spider-Man: Far From Home. After spending a few hours watching the filming, it’s clear audiences won’t be the only ones who will feel like they’ve been clocked: Holland’s Peter Parker is taking plenty of hits as he teams up with Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio to fight off the villainous Elementals who are wreaking havoc across the globe.
Near the ruins of a bombed out city set, Holland joined us in a tent on the Warner Bros. lot in London and told us about what it feels like to play Spider-Man in more movies than any other actor, the dynamic between Peter and Mysterio, his efforts to not spoil anything for fans, and yes, a scene that’s designed to take the audience’s breath away.

When we talk about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’re largely talking about Marvel Studios movies – at least until those Disney+ shows debut. Yes, TV series like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, and the Marvel Netflix shows were technically set in that same universe, but let’s be real: so far, the movies are the non-comic stories with the biggest sense of importance. They’re the ones that count. It’s strange, then, that a commercial – which is way less relevant than any of those TV shows – could end up having an influence on a major MCU entry.
During our visit to the set of Spider-Man: Far From Home, we learned how a car commercial caught the eye of Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and how a character that originated in a tie-in advertisement ended up appearing as a supporting role in the MCU. Check out the commercial and read about its impact below. Read More »
