First Glance: “Spider-Man: Far From Home” Trailer

Today Marvel Studio’s sure-fire box office behemoth “Spider-Man: Far From Home” dropped its first trailer and let’s just say things look promising. That comes from someone who wasn’t the biggest fan of 2017’s “Homecoming”. I can’t say whether “Far From Home” will solve the issues I had with its predecessor, but (aside from the cringy beginning and cringier ending) it’s looking pretty good so far.

Take a look and tell me what you think:

  1. Truth be told, I’ve never been the biggest fan of Spider-man. Any version. That being said, I thought that Homecoming was at least a pretty decent affair with an awesome villain and I think they found the right guy to play Peter Parker. I’m really curious about this new one. It looks pretty decent, but I just hope it relies less on the awkward teenager shenanigans that’s plagued most of the previous Spider-Man films.

    • You hit on two of the real strengths of “Homecoming”. Holland is a great Peter Parker and I loved Michael Keaton. I remember being frustrated at how they used Keaton though. Seems like there were times where he all but vanishes. I remember also feeling it spent too much time making sure we knew it was an MCU movie.

      • That was one of my biggest issues with the film, it HAD to let you know it was part of the MCU. Honestly, I could have done without Tony Stark in a Spider-Man movie. I could also do without Nick Fury in a Spider-Man movie as well, but that’s neither here nor there.

  2. I’ll definitely go see this. Plus, hearing the Ramones once again provide the soundtrack for Spider-Man just feels right. I really think Marvel should collaborate with the estate of the Ramones in making a special compilation CD of their music as if it was compiled by Peter Parker/Spider-Man as a way to introduce the band’s music to a new generation of music fans. They should do the same with Led Zeppelin and Thor since I think Taika Waititi was the one who finally found a proper use for Zeppelin’s music as it relates to Thor.

    I’m totally on board with this as I enjoyed the hell out of Spider-Man: Homecoming as I think Tom Holland is perfect as both Peter Parker/Spider-Man and they grounded the film more to show Parker trying to learn the ropes while balancing it as a high school student. Plus, the movie did something the other films weren’t able to do. Put in a music soundtrack of decent music for once.

    • I really like Holland as Spidey and I really liked it getting back to the high school roots. But I felt “Homecoming” could have done more with Keaton. I also don’t care for their ‘hot’ Aunt Mae. I remember thinking some of the recasting of roles didn’t work nor did the constant reminders that it was an MCU movie. I felt it ended up taking away from Peter’s story. BUT, There is no doubt I was in the minority. Most people really went for it.

  3. I can’t help but muster ambivalence about this portrayal of the webhead. But in the plus column, Mysterio looks incredible, a perfect melding of actor and ascetic. I look forward to seeing how he will be portrayed, even if it’s a total reinvention.

    • Mysterio was the absolute highlight for me. He looked really cool and I’m anxious to see what Gyllenhaal brings to the character. Hopefully they will give him room to develop.

  4. I’m no fan of the first and this one made me cringe even worst. So much I dislike about this version of Spidey I could write a essay. But I won’t, all I will say this movie will get zero bucks from me. Yes I really dislike this version. Only thing I will say, Holland is being so wasted and that frustrates me .

    • I can completely understand where you’re coming from. I thought the beginning and ending of the trailer was incredibly lame. The middle interested me though especially Gyllenhaal as Mysterio, a villain I’ve always liked. But after Homecoming I’ll be going into this one with plenty of caution.
