Thanos may have turned Peter Parker to ash in Avengers: Infinity War, but fans who have been paying attention have known for a long time that that heart-wrenching scene would not be the last time we'd see Spider-Man swinging through the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After several months of anticipation, fans have finally been treated to their first real look at Spider-Man: Far From Home, the sequel to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Any fan searching for some hint about the events of Avengers: Endgame may be disappointed. For the most part, nothing shown overtly tells us anything about when this film takes place in relation to the Avengers films. But although it's less than forthcoming with clear hints about the MCU's overall future, in less than three minutes, we learn a whole lot about what the world is like for Spider-Man and his friends once Thanos is finally defeated. Let's break it down!
A SUPPORTIVE AUNT MAY
The first clip shows a masked Peter Parker on stage in the suit he got from Tony Stark, lost and earned back in Homecoming -- the same outfit he was trying out when Aunt May found out her nephew's secret identity. Now she's joining Spidey on stage, introducing and thanking him on behalf of the crowd, who have all evidently gathered to support the homeless in what some comic book fans might assume to be something akin to the F.E.A.S.T shelter.
While May was understandably shocked enough to yell an expletive the last time we saw her, she's now apparently completely supportive of Peter's career as a superpowered vigilante, high-fiving him and cheering him on with everyone else.
HAPPY AND AUNT MAY
Apparently Iron Man wasn't the only one charmed by May Parker. The next scene in the trailer reveals that Happy Hogan remains tasked with keeping an eye on the young superhero. What his appearance says about Iron Man's fate is up for fans to debate, what we're focusing on here is the fact that both Happy and May seem incredibly flirty, to the astonishment of Peter, who -- despite being dressed in that outfit -- seems to be completely forgotten during the pair's conversation.
Whether or not there's actually something going on there or if it's just the two having a bit of fun remains to be seen. It seems a little odd but it's entirely possible. Both of them know what it's like being left to worry for their superhero friends and/or family, they could be a perfect match.
The last time we saw Peter's classmates, they managed to survive a deadly trip to Washington. This time around, we find out that that near-lethal adventure hasn't discouraged any of them in the slightest -- they're all are bound for Europe, with plans to visit London, Venice and Prague, specifically. And, as you'd expect, throughout their European tour, they appear destined to be hounded by what appears to be some of the film's antagonists.
It's worth noting that Peter and MJ seem to be growing closer, if that slightly awkward conversation on a theater stage is anything to go by. (Apparently, they both take flirting lessons from Happy and May.) In general, the Europe trip seems like it'll unfold similarly to the one they took in Spider-Man: Homecoming, only this time it's on a much larger scale, meaning a lot more excitement.
