Sony has finally released a trailer for next summer’s Spider-Man: Far From Home. In it, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and his class take a trip to Italy. And for the duration, Peter plans to be Spider-Man no more, but Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) have other ideas for the webhead.
Bright and colorful, this seems like a million miles away from the grit of Avengers: Infinity War. So much so, you almost have to wonder if this material predates the events of that film.

Oh, also, did you notice Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) flirting with Aunt May (Marissa Tomei) instead of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.)? That is quite an interesting change.
Spider-Man: Far From Home opens on July 5th.
