Spider-Man may have not made it out alive in “Avengers: Infinity War,” but fans already knew that the webslinger would return following a social media post from the film’s star, Tom Holland, confirming a sequel was in the works. On Tuesday (Jan 15), following weeks of speculation and a massive postponement, the first official trailer for the upcoming film was released.
The clip begins with Peter Parker dressed as Spider-Man attending a charity event with May on hand to thank Spider-Man, pretending to not know that it’s her nephew under the red and blue suit. Once they’re done, they head to the back where Peter removes the mask and hugs his aunt. While chatting, Tony Stark’s trust bodyguard Happy Hogan appears with a massive check in hand and begins to flirt with May; a direct reference to their rumored romance in the upcoming film. “What just happened?” is the only thing Peter is able to mutter.
The teaser continues with Peter talking about a massive trip his class will be taking to Europe as he goes about packing his bag (which has the letter BFP). May goes through a list of item he may need and asks if he had packed his suit. He responds by telling her that “Europe really doesn’t need a friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man.”
The video follows Peter and his friends as they explore the different cities on their itinerary, but thing begin to take a turn following an awkward moment of flirtation between Peter and MJ in what appear to be a church.
Upon returning to the room, Peter starts telling Ned how he feels a connection with MJ, only for Ned to go limp and fall on the floor. The camera turns to a dark corner where a certain, one-eyed former director sits.
“So nice to finally meet you….Spider-Man,” Nick Fury drawls.
As an action-packed sequence soon follows with Peter telling someone “I think Nick Fury just hi-jacked our summer vacation.”
In between all the action shots, viewers get their first look at Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio.
