Sony Pictures premiered a trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home at Comic Con Experience Brazil earlier today. It’s not available online, but we do have a description from CinePop. The footage screened at CCXP hints at new romances and Hydro Man joining Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) as an antagonist for Spider-Man (Tom Holland)
Here is the description, translated from Portuguese to English via Google Translate.
The trailer begins with Peter and Aunt May at an event inside a gym. He’s wearing the hero’s uniform. Then they find Happy, who flirts with May.
Peter is planning a vacation with his friends at school, prepares his suitcase and leaves his uniform at home, claiming he only wants to spend time with his friends.
A quick scene brings Peter issuing his passport, picking up his things and embarking for Europe. Next we see him in Venice, on a gondola ride, the camera cuts to Michelle. Shortly afterwards Peter says that he seems to be connecting with his schoolmate and a mood arises between them, with embarrassed exchanges of praise within a theater.
Peter and Ned are in the hotel room when their friend is surprisingly attacked by a dart. The projectile came from a gun fired by Nick Fury, who was sitting in an armchair in the dark. He is summoned for a mission.
A quick scene brings the Spider in his furtive uniform.
Then a succession of scenes brings explosions on the emblematic London Bridge, people on the run and much destruction.
Then the Hydro Man emerges from the water in Venice, waging an epic battle with Spider-Man. Shortly afterwards, the villain Mysterio emerges unexpectedly, uniformed, like a kind of hero, ending the trailer.
The romance between Peter and Michelle (Zendaya) is expected, but not Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) and Aunt May (Marisa Tomei). We’ll have to see if that flirting leads to a relationship.
According to fans who were at the panel (via Super Bros Movies), Tom Holland described the relationship between Peter and Quentin Beck (the real name of Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio) as brothers in arms. Spider-Man and Mysterio are said to be teaming up to battle elemental enemies, like Hydro Man.

Rumors of Hydro Man being in the film actually started when Holland shared a video of a big water stunt on Instagram back in August.
The notion of Spider-Man and Mysterio teaming up sounds strange. Mysterio is a major Spidey antagonist and most fans expect him to be exactly that in Far From Home. He still could be, though, as it wouldn’t surprise me if these elemental villains are working for Beck, or are elaborate illusions that he’s created. Mysterio making himself out to be a superhero is a fitting villain plot for the character.
Sony should be dropping this trailer (or perhaps a different one) online in the coming days. There’s no way the studio will pass up an opportunity to pair a trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (out December 14).
Spider-Man: Far From Home is in theaters July 5, 2019.
