AceShowbiz - Aunt May isn't going to stay single in "Spider-Man: Far From Home". The first trailer for the movie was recently shown at the Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil, revealing a new love interest for the character portrayed by Marisa Tomei.
According to Comic Book Movie, [SPOILER ALERT!] the trailer opens with a scene hinting that May already knows about Peter Parker's (Tom Holland) secret identity as Spider-Man and she's supportive about it. Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) later turns up, revealing that he's romantically involved with Peter's aunt.
In the next scene, Peter and friends are going on a school trip in Europe. Opting to remain a civilian during the vacation, Peter gets a surprise visit from Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) who asks for his help to battle The Elementals, who can manifest himself as sand (Zephyr), water (Hydron) and fire (Magnum).
Quentin Beck a.k.a. Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) later appears and is featured battling the same enemy, The Elementals, as he is also recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D. Making it more interesting, Tom Holland said during the panel at CCXP that Spider-Man and Mysterio indeed work together in the film and described their relationship as like "brothers."
As comic book fans have known, Mysterio a.k.a. Quentin Beck is a Hollywood stuntman and special effects artist who dreams of becoming a big film star. When his dreams aren't obtainable, he turns into a criminal mastermind using his ability to create expert illusions. He is often depicted as a supervillain and enemy of Spider-Man.
It remains to be seen whether or not their friendship will turn sour in "Far From Home" and if so, how.
In real life, the two actors clearly have no problem poking fun at each other. Holland recently shared a video from their hotel room in Brazil in which he greeted his international fans. As the British star moved around the room, the camera captured Gyllenhaal trying to imitate Spider-Man's web-shooting moves while looking at himself in the mirror.
"Jake, what are you doing?" Holland asks with a chuckle. "Just drying my hands," an embarrassed Gyllenhaal answers as he exits the bathroom.
"Spider-Man: Far From Home" is still directed by Jon Watts who also served as helmer for "Spider-Man: Homecoming". The superhero pic is set for a July 5, 2019 release in the United States. The first trailer has not been released online, but it likely will arrive in a matter of days.
