Spider-Man: Far From Home will be the first film connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to hit theaters following the juggernaut that is Avengers: Endgame.
Our source tells us that Spider-Man: Far From Home will have a much shorter runtime compared to Avengers: Endgame. The movie will clock in at 130 minutes making it just a little over 2 hours.
As we previously reported, advance tickets for the film will go on sale on May 6th at 6 am PT and 9 am PT.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will see Peter Parker leave the comforts of New York City and head on a European vacation with his friends from school including Ned and MJ. While, Peter was hoping to take a break from his friendly neighborhood Spider-Man duties, Nick Fury and Maria Hill recruit him to uncover the mystery of a number of elemental creature attacks wreaking havoc throughout Europe.
In fact, it looks like Tom Holland’s Parker will team up with Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio who is described as a “cool uncle” by director Jon Watts. Watts explains, “If Tony Stark was sort of the mentor in the previous films, we thought it would be interesting to play Mysterio as almost like the cool uncle.” That description has a ton of meaning given the events of Avengers: Endgame and Peter Parker saw his mentor Tony Stark give his life in order to defeat the Mad Titan.
In fact, it appears that Mysterio will actually know Peter Parker’s identity and he might be working with Nick Fury and Parker in order to take down these elementals. But as fans of the comic books know, the partnership and “cool uncle” vibe might be a little more than it seems. Mysterio is one of Spider-Man’s greatest foes after all.
Spider-Man: Far From Home recently had its release date moved up. The film will hit theaters on Tuesday, July 2nd.
