Nick Fury Is the 'Mean New Stepdad' of Spider-Man: Far From Home

Peter Parker is getting a new mentor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After Tony Stark served as Peter's superhero coach in Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming, Nick Fury will take over in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Far From Home director Jon Watts described Peter and Fury's relationship in the film, saying, “If Tony is like the supportive cool uncle, Fury's more like the mean new stepdad. Fury doesn't see himself in Peter Parker. Fury sees Peter Parker as an asset that he needs who is too preoccupied with a bunch of high school problems."

Based on the trailers for Far From Home, Fury will play a big role in Peter's European adventure. However, he very nearly had a part to play in Homecoming, too. “Part of my pitch for the very first movie was bringing Nick Fury in and making him the mean substitute teacher,” Watts said.

Fury's fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill will also appear in the film, as can be seen in promotional photos. The film will be set in Europe as Spider-Man goes against Mysterio, one of his most famous villains.
