MCU fans want to be sedated after watching the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer. Though dubbed as a “teaser,” it balanced a fine line between giving fans footage to go crazy over and vague plot elements to theorize about. Sony will probably ruin this with a second or third trailer (maybe more), but things are off to a good start for Far From Home.
Zendaya, who plays “Michelle” aka MJ, celebrated the trailer’s release by sharing a BTS photo that was taken during production. It’s clear that the singer-turned-actress enjoys doing these stunts since she did some of her own wirework during The Greatest Showman. Seems like she is having a blast and we can only hope that the fans experience similar fun when watching the movie.
Everyone loved Zendaya’s version of MJ in Homecoming since the character clearly stood out thanks to an eccentric personality and some funny gags involving her. Her sense of humor was kept for Far From Home, as she reacts aggressively to Peter calling her pretty, saying “therefore I have value?” before ending the charade and claiming that Parker looked pretty too.
Romance, Mysterio, and Spider-Man villains might make this one of the better live-action films starring the web-slinger. It probably won’t be as good as Into the Spider-Verse but that isn’t a fair comparison since animation has more freedom.
Spider-Man: Far From Home comes out on July 5.
