According to Deadline, Sony Pictures will miss out this year’s CinemaCon and therefore we won’t see a Spider-Man: Far From Home preview at the convention.
Sony Pictures decided to skip CinemaCon, which will take place April 1-4 in Las Vegas, allegedly pursuing a new strategy for their amazing movie line-up for this year. With movies like Men in Black International, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Zombieland 2, Charlie’s Angels, the Mister Rogers movie A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Greta Gerwig’s Little Women and the Jumanji sequel, the studios will focus on a day-to-day strategy rather to a big drop one for these films thus skipping this huge event.
This means that we won’t be able to anticipate when the next footage of Spider-Man: Far From Home will drop next, unfortunately. We’ll have to rely on Tom Holland’s already famous slip-ups as we get closer and closer to July. The first trailer for the movie dropped some days ago showing Peter Parker and his friends traveling to Europe, Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury return to the MCU and Jake Gyllenhaal’s official debut as Mysterio.
Sony’s change of heart regarding the advertisement for its movies actually plays well with what Kevin Feige, the Russo Brothers, and Marvel Studios are doing for Avengers: Endgame. The secrecy involving the latest of the Avengers’ movies has been astounding. The Endgame name was only revealed in December, after months of speculation and cementing the Russo’s stone-cold-secret-keeping tradition. Also, Feige revealed that advertisement for the movie will only feature the first few minutes of the film, so no one really knows what will happen. This spiked speculation once again among fans which are expectant on what Endgame can bring to the table to further expand the MCU.
While we wait for more on Spider-Man and the MCU, here’s the synopsis for Far From Home:
“Peter Parker returns in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the next chapter of the Spider-Man: Homecoming series! Our friendly neighborhood Super Hero decides to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation. However, Peter’s plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks are quickly scrapped when he begrudgingly agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks, creating havoc across the continent!”
Spider-Man: Far From Home is directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Micheal Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Laura Harrier, Zach Barack, Marisa Tomei, Tony Revolori, Numan Acar, J. B. Smoove, Oli Hill, Remy Hii and Hemky Madera.
The film will swing into theaters on July 5, 2019
What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.
Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click “Next” to find out.
1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes’ (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as “MJ” that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.
Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter’s motivations in Far From Home.
2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home
Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter’s secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she’s aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.
3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic Affair
This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won’t be awkward for Peter.
4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury
The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.
The unlikely duo has been described to have a “brothers in arms” dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?
5. Spider-Man & Mysterio’s Relationship Is The Central Focus
During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:
“The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There’s no one more professional than him.”
Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.
