Spidey Swings Through Europe In New Spider-Man: Far From Home Posters

Never did we think Peter Parker and Austin Powers would have something in common. 

The friendly neighborhood hero is an international man of mystery (and vigilantism) in the newest batch of posters for Spider-Man: Far From Home

Sony Pictures dropped a trio of one-sheets on Monday morning, then presumably gave Spider-Man star Tom Holland the a-okay to post them on social media. (Listen, Holland is an infamous spoiler-spiller, having gotten in hot water with Marvel Studios a number of times before. It's not out of the realm of reality that ol' Sony had to give the Brit permission beforehand.)

In one poster, Spidey's hanging (literally) in Venice, Italy. Another sees him watching over the city of London, with Big Ben (the clock, of course, not Peter's late uncle) spotted in the background. The third one takes the web-flinging hero to Berlin, where he crouches on the cobblestones in front of the Brandenburg Gate.

"I thought I'd kickstart your week with a little Spidey action," Holland wrote in the caption of his most recent Instagram post, which shows off all three posters in a carousel arrangement. "Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theatres July 5th and it's his craziest ride yet." 

With its international setting and globe-trotting story, Spider-Man: Far From Home is set to be unlike any other solo Spider-Man film that came before it. Sam Raimi's trilogy from the early 2000s, the Amazing Spider-Man duology that hit theaters in 2012 and 2014, and Sony's Spider-Man: Far From Home all took place primarily in New York. That Far From Home makes a hop, skip, and jump across the pond to explore several European countries makes it stand out — and probably for the better. These posters hint that Peter and his pals — like best bud Ned (Jacob Batalon) and burgeoning love interest MJ (Zendaya) — will visit many iconic landmarks during their summer vacation, and that the teenage hero will tussle with some baddies at those very same locations when he slips into his Spidey suit. 

Director Jon Watts and screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers (who co-wrote Spider-Man: Homecoming with Watts, Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, and Christopher Ford) return for Far From Home, and it will be interesting to see how the creative trio make use of the international backdrops. Will Watts bring some unique set pieces to the big screen? Will McKenna and Sommers lean into the landscape and let that influence how the story unfolds, and how the characters interact with one another? We have a feeling it's all very likely — but we'll have to wait a while before we know for sure. 

Now that this new collection of posters has arrived, there's a good chance Sony might release another trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home, as the studio has unveiled just one full-length look at the Spidey sequel. That came in January and Far From Home is due out in July, so it isn't a stretch to think that Sony will roll out a new trailer in mid-May or early June to get everyone thinking about Spider-Man's next adventure. Marvel has Avengers: Endgame, the superhero ensemble event of the decade, lined up to launch on April 26 — and Sony would be wise to bring Far From Home back in the spotlight when Endgame hype has calmed down after the film releases in theaters. Fingers crossed we'll see more of Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio and make sense of those Elemental monsters in a new Far From Home trailer, should Sony actually give us one. 

Spider-Man: Far From Home will swing into theaters on July 5.
