The Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps getting bigger. This Summer, it will get even larger when Spider-Man: Far From Home touches down. Prior to Spidey’s adventure, Marvel completed their Thanos narrative. Avengers: Endgame closes the decade-long story that began with Iron Man. Far From Home will jump-start the next era of Marvel movies (although it is the final phase 3 film), so there has undoubtedly been extra care put into this effort. Homecoming was the best Spider-Man movie since Sam Raimi’s second film in the series, and the sequel will be helmed by the same director, Jon Watts.

Watts reinvented the classic Spidey villain Vulture for Homecoming. Despite the error in the MCU timeline, Homecoming did an amazing job of re-visioning main characters in Spider-Man’s history. Aunt May is much younger, MJ is an ethnic girl, and Peter Parker is Tony Stark’s young protege. Watts will continue to play with Spidey's lore for Far From Home, something that can already be discerned by the film’s plot. It reads, “Peter Parker returns in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the next chapter of the Spider-Man: Homecoming series! Our friendly neighborhood Super Hero decides to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation. However, Peter's plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks are quickly scrapped when he begrudgingly agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several Elemental creature attacks, creating havoc across the continent!” The Elemental creatures that are referenced will bring Spidey in contact with his purported (we'll see) villain: Mysterio.
