Spiderman: Far From Home will be releasing in a few months. This will be the lone movie announced in a post-Avengers: Endgame world. It is too soon to start the promotion, but some light press has already started. The movie’s director Jon Watts handed out a sneak peek via USA Today.
A picture which was released yesterday shows Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) back at work despite being “snapped away” in Avengers: Infinity War.
Jon Watts’s Interview
Jon Watts explained what fans could expect when Peter Parker (Tom Holland) swings back into his solo franchise. According to Watts, there’s a lot of growing to be had by the eponymous character between Avengers: Endgame and the follow-up. Watts said:
“I have this memory of being a kid and wanting so desperately to be treated like an adult. And then there’s one day, suddenly, where everyone does treat you like an adult and you start to think, ‘Oh, I liked it better when I was being treated like a kid. Could I go back?’ But by the time that happened, you’re never allowed to go back.”
When it comes to Nick Fury, Watts said that the SHIELD director’s dynamic in the flick will be much different with Holland’s web-slinger character than the relationship between Peter Parker and Tony Stark found in Spiderman: Homecoming. In fact, Watts says if Stark was the cool uncle figure, Fury is going to be an angry stepdad.
He also added:
“Fury sees Peter Parker as an asset that he needs who is too preoccupied with a bunch of high school problems. Part of my pitch for the very first movie was bringing Nick Fury in and making him the mean substitute teacher.”
Tom Holland’s Spiderman: Far From Home will hit the theatres on July 2nd. You can check out the teaser trailer below.
