SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Clips Feature An Awkward Romantic Moment And Hydro-Man's Arrival

Two new clips from Spider-Man: Far From Home have been released, and as well as a sweet moment between Peter Parker and MJ, we get to see Hydro-Man's arrival in Venice! Check them out after the jump...

We didn't really get to see any clips from Avengers: Endgame due to the secretive nature of the movie, and while Spider-Man: Far From Home has plenty of mysteries (no pun intended), Sony Pictures isn't shying away from showing us some key moments from the Marvel Studios production. 

The first clip features Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and MJ (Zendaya) clearly growing closer as they enjoy a night at the opera alongside their classmates, but things quickly start to go wrong when the wall-crawler's superhero duties get in the way. 

In the second, Hydro-Man arrives in Venice much to the shock of Parker, and we see Mysterio arrive to try and save the day. It's a cool visual and this Elemental looks particularly terrifying as it unleashes its powers on the iconic Italian city. 

There's still over a week to go until Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into theaters, so it remains to be seen whether Sony will continue to reveal new footage before then. With any luck, they'll start slowing down a little as it would be a shame to see too many big moments before July 2nd arrives.

Check out the clips in the players below:

Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts!

How Far After The Event Of Avengers: Endgame Is The Movie Set?

Yesterday's trailer finally confirmed that, yes, Spider-Man: Far From Home does indeed take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. However, we've heard conflicting reports about just how much time will have passed. Is it minutes, hours, days, or more?
"We don't say specifically how far after, but the idea is that it's almost immediately after the events of Endgame," Watts confirms. "So we get to see the neighborhood from the first movie dealing with the implications of all of the crazy fallout of Endgame. And, you know, in classic New York style, everyone is just moving on and getting on with their daily lives. Ya know, half the people that disappeared are now back, so let's move on. [laughs]"

Is that an indication that the movie will mostly just brush over the five-year time jump?!

Does The Movie Really Introduce The Marvel Multiverse?

The trailer reveals that Mysterio is from another Earth and that the Snap ripped a hole in reality (are we sure it wasn't The Avengers travelling through time?). However, does Far From Home really introduce the Multiverse or is "Mr. Beck" trolling Spider-Man and those of us in the audience? 

"Well, I mean, yeah," Watts claims. "We had to look at it in terms of the scope of what happened at the end of Endgame. Seeing all the crazy things that they did and all the questions that raises. So we're definitely trying to answer one of the big ones -- alternate timelines. So many possibilities opened up at the end of Endgame, and Peter Parker is one of the few people on the ground dealing with them."
As for whether he could explain the rules the MCU's Multiverse, Watts would only say, "I wouldn't dare! I'll let Nick Fury do that."

Why Is Nick Fury Trying To Recruit Spider-Man? 

After being inspired by Captain Marvel, Nick Fury created The Avengers Initiative and brought together Earth's Mightiest Heroes to tackle threats too big for the rest of us. Now, it sounds like he might be trying to do the same thing in a world he's been absent from for the past five years. 

"Well, that was what was very exciting to me because this is a version of Nick Fury I don't think we've ever seen, which is a Nick Fury who is playing catch-up," the filmmaker explains. "He disappeared for five years and the world changed dramatically in his absence, and here he is trying to put together a new team."
"Spider-Man and Mysterio are being recruited to tackle this threat of the Elementals," he continues. "That's what Nick Fury does, but now things are crazier than usual."

Who Is Mysterio And What Are The Elementals?

Quentin Beck is a villain in the comic books and a well-known con-man but this big screen version has clearly gone through some major changes. Asked who Mysterio is and what his agenda is when we first meet him, Watts replies: "In the film, it's similar to the trailer, he is introduced as a potential ally to fight off this elemental threat."

As for those Elementals, just like most of us suspected, they're from the same world as Beck. "They're both from the same sort of parallel dimension, yeah," the filmmaker adds. 

What Happened To Aunt May Following The Snap? 

Spider-Man ended up being dusted alongside the Guardians of the Galaxy on Titan so has his Aunt May spent the past five years not knowing what became of her nephew? Well, in a bid to make things a little more straightforward, Watts confirms that May was actually one of the Mad Titan's victims back on Earth. "She disappeared and came back," he confirms when asked about her fate.

Are The Criminals In The Trailer Working For The Kingpin?

At the start of the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, the Iron Spider can be seen taking on some heavily armed goons and, well, they look a lot more serious than the Bodega Bandits from the first film. So, is it possible that they're tied to someone like Wilson Fisk? "Well, I don't want to say too much, but I will say they're not specifically tied to Kingpin in this movie," Watts confirms.

"But you do get to see what it's like now for Spider-Man to be a very confident and friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. I feel like he's got the neighborhood under control."

Is Miles Morales Going To Be Introduced In The Movie?

Donald Glover's Aaron Davis mentions his nephew Miles in Spider-Man: Homecoming and now that five years have passed, he might just be the right age to become a superhero...right? "There is no Miles in this film, or at least not yet," Watts reveals when asked about the character's big screen future. "But who knows... we edit these films down to the last second, so you never know."

How Does Far From Home Address The Fallout From Endgame?

"I've always seen Spider-Man as the most relatable superhero for that reason," Watts says when asked about how Spider-Man: Homecoming offered a more personal look at the MCU. "I used Peter Parker/Spider-Man as an opportunity to get that ground-level perspective to show you what it would look like if all these crazy things had happened. What would day-to-day life be? If you were snapped away, you'd have to work backwards and retake your midterms."

"That was one of the most fun things," he continues, "just talking through what the most mundane implications would be. Like, your birthday on your driver's license or passport would say that you are five years older than you technically are. Those sorts of questions are just so fascinating to me, and I really wanted to get into the minutiae of it and really explore that."

What Is Happy Hogan's Role In The Movie?

Happy Hogan is clearly going to play a large role in proceedings moving forward but beyond what we've seen in the trailers, what should we expect from Tony Stark's old friend in this movie? 

"Similar to Peter, who lost his mentor in Tony... you know, Happy has been there since the very beginning. I think a big part of this story is trying to find your place in the world if the center of your world is gone. I've always liked Happy as a character, and to use him to explore some of these things was really exciting. To explore a world without Tony, who was the man that created Iron Man."

Will The Vulture Return?

Since the start, reliable sources have claimed that Michael Keaton will reprise his role as The Vulture in Spider-Man: Far From Home, something which has led to a lot of speculation about the formation of the Sinister Six. Unfortunately, it sounds like neither he nor Liz (Laura Harrier) will appear. "Keaton is not in the movie, and Laura is not in the movie," Watts states, shooting down those rumours.

Will The Action Be Bigger In Scale This Time?

Spider-Man: Homecoming didn't hold back in terms of action but Peter Parker was very inexperienced and things were relatively small in scale. So, how will things change this time around? 

"[In] terms of a pure filmmaking level, I really wanted to turn up the action and make that huge," the director reveals. "In the last movie, we kept things a little bit smaller, intentionally, to remind people why they love Spider-Man. And without changing the tone, I wanted to keep that ground-level relatability, but also turn up the level of action to create something really spectacular. I wanted to show people things that they've never seen before at the movies."

Is Spider-Man Trying To Fill The Void Iron Man Left?

One of the biggest themes in the new trailer is Peter Parker's attempt to fill the void that's been left by Iron Man's death. The question is, can he really take Iron Man's place in the MCU? 

"Now, the world is asking him to step up, and he's not sure whether he's ready for that level of responsibility," Watts explains. "Like, he's still a 16-year-old kid from Queens. It's something I can relate, too. I remember being a kid and you desparately want to be treated as an adult. But then suddenly you're treated as an adult, and suddenly you realize that maybe it was better back when I was being treated as a kid. Once you cross that threshold, there's no going back."

Will Characters From Homecoming Be Five Years Older?

While it appears as if most of Peter Parker's classmates were dusted by Thanos, surely some of the characters we met last time will no be five years older? Well, Watts confirms that will be the case in the sequel but doesn't name names. "Yeah, that's one of the fun things that we get to play with -- the sort of real-world, ground-level implications of something like that. You don't get to see any of the fallout in Endgame, and we get to explore that in our movie. It's really interesting and fun."

Is There More To The Movie Than The Trailers Let On?

Heading into Captain Marvel, we all thought that the Skrulls would be the movie's villains but the reality was much different. Asked if the there's more to the wall-crawler's latest adventure than meets the eye, the director says: "You know, for a trailer that has a lot of stuff in it, it's just really scratching the surface." We'll just have to wait and see what he means by that...

That first clip with MJ was really well done. Holland and Zendaya have off-the-charts chemistry.
bkmeijer2 - 6/20/2019, 5:51 AM
You know, I take my what I said this morning. In fact I am hyped and might wanna see this on the big screen. That hydro-man clip was really cool
SpideyPuffsMJ - 6/20/2019, 5:56 AM
I'm really excited for this. For all the trailers and clips there's a lot we don't know and the footage has only gotten more and more interesting. Looks great!
Webheaded225 - 6/20/2019, 6:02 AM
I really like that awkward conversation. Pretty good actually. I just think that the problem with this films is that they don't give enough of that, because you have three hundred thousand things happening at the same time. It would be cool if this film, like Spider-Man 2, had the opportunity to just delve deep in this character's relationships, so that the punches and fight scenes are more heartfelt. My problem with Homecomming is that you couldn't really feel how terribly heavy the burden of being a hero is on Peter Parker, even though some of that was shown, it wasn't as terrible as it could've been. I hope Peter just gets punched by life in all kinds of ways in this film.
Origame - 6/20/2019, 9:45 AM
@Webheaded225 - yeah but that would require actually understanding how spiderman works, and they seem much more interested in making him the next iron man.
BigPhilbowski - 6/20/2019, 1:06 PM
@Origame - he's nothing like Iron Man in any of his MCU appearances so far. But sure, whatever floats your boat troll.
Origame - 6/20/2019, 2:25 PM
@BigPhilbowski - so the fact he relies more on a stark suit than his actual powers isnt the case? Or how about money never being an issue for him? He may not have the same personality as tony but its clear they're more focused on making these movies iron man sequels than spiderman movies.
BigPhilbowski - 6/20/2019, 3:13 PM
@Origame - you're really stretching aren't you. Yes he uses a tech suit but that's where any similarities end. He also uses his powers a lot more than he relies on the suit. Anyway, he's always used tech in the comics. And what do you mean by money isn't an issue for him? There's nothing that shows that in the movies and there's no situation where he needs money. By your logic Black Panther is also just another iron man as he also uses tech in his suit and is rich.
Origame - 6/20/2019, 11:22 PM
@BigPhilbowski - 1) so you admit that he shares the gimmick for iron man that separates his superhero adventures from any other? Ok.

2) no he doesnt. At least not in homecoming or infinity war/endgame. Outside of civil war and the end of homecoming he never had a problem that wasnt solved by his suit working for him.

3) key word HIS tech. Where is he using his own tech? This is stark tech. Sure peter invented the web shooters but these are clearly fancy stark made models that are shown to be better in every way.

4) dude you literally just answered your own question there. Civil war set up peter as being part of a struggling household, to the point where peter has to dumpster dive for a computer. Yet in homecoming he can lose 5 bookbags while aunt may just keeps buying them. He can get a nice suit for the dance. Hes enrolled in a school that clearly isnt public and can go on trips to dc and london without worries. And this is peter parker. Of course there should be issues with money involved.

5) well black panther actually has other elements going for him. Hes a king first. He actually uses his powers outside of just his tech. Mcu peter has none of that. While they claim they're meant to focus on high school drama, peter spends most of the movie literally trying to live up to iron man.
BigPhilbowski - 6/21/2019, 5:30 AM
@Origame - your points aren't even worth adressing. Your strecthing every little thing to prove your point. Tthe fact you actually beleive he doesn't use his super strength or agility in Homecoming proves you're just here to troll. Don't you have a DC thread to run along to?
Origame - 6/21/2019, 6:27 AM
@BigPhilbowski - thank you for not actually reading my comment and just placing me as a troll. If you actually READ my comment youd know i never said he doesnt use his powers. What i said is that he uses tech MORE than his powers. And ill throw that last part in, dont you have a dc thread to blindly troll on dc fans while making marvel look perfect?
BigPhilbowski - 6/21/2019, 11:15 AM
@Origame - nah you see I don't go on posts looking to diss films purely because I like ones from another company. Come back when you hsve some legitimate complaints about the movie.
Origame - 6/21/2019, 1:29 PM
@BigPhilbowski - dude ive praised guardians and black panther on this site. Ive dissed suicide squad and bvs. But please, keep telling yourself im a dc fanboy just because i have problems with homecoming you're too blind to see.
GhostDog - 6/20/2019, 6:05 AM
That conversation clip reminds me of just how AWKWARD it was being a teenager.
KWilly - 6/20/2019, 6:08 AM
I already like Zendaya's MJ more than Kristen Dunst's MJ. She's quirky and Zendaya (at least from what I've seen) is doing a great job at this role.

regularmovieguy - 6/20/2019, 6:39 AM

Honestly I think most people would be on board if it wasn’t for the tag at the end of Homecoming (“friends call me MJ” bit).

She was a fun character and her and Tom have awesome chemistry. She just doesn’t resemble MJ. I’m sure she’ll have a bigger role in Far From Home so I’m looking forward to that.
knocturnalzen10 - 6/20/2019, 6:32 AM
is this confirmed hydro man and why is it in the tittle tho Josh -_- ?
Origame - 6/20/2019, 9:54 AM
@knocturnalzen10 - apparently the toys call him hydro man. Apparently the way they're handling things is that the elementals are the mcu versions of molten man and hydro man but that they're just monsters (or illusions) and not the actual characters.
knocturnalzen10 - 6/20/2019, 10:06 AM
@Origame - oh ok understood thank you good sir.
WakandanQueen - 6/20/2019, 6:32 AM
The Elementals are going to look glorious!
