For those of us who love the Marvel series, viewers seemed to take a hard turn after the ending of “Avengers: Endgame”. However, after hearing the news about the newly released “Spider-Man: Far From Home” movie, people seemed to be excited but curious how director, Jon Watts, was going to follow the 2.783 billion dollar box office movie of “Avengers: Endgame” that was directed by Joe Russo.
Now Peter Parker (Tom Holland) has made many appearances in previous Marvel movies but is most known for his appearance in the previous Endgame movie, and the first movie in his series “Spiderman: Homecoming”.
In this new movie, our “friendly” neighborhood superhero decided to take a little vacation with his friends, Ned (Jacob Batalon), MJ (Zendaya), and the rest of the gang to Europe. Although this little trip gets interrupted when Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) needs Spider Man’s help to uncover the mysterious element creature attacks, creating destruction across the continents. However, when Peter refuses to help Nick because he longs to be a normal kid for a couple weeks, Nick throws a wrench in Peter's plan by “upgrading” his class trip to all the places Nick needs Spider Man to help.
So, when Peter finally does accept the offer to help Nick, he needs to do it on the downlow, so his classmates don't find out. While still trying to impress MJ, Peter meets a new friend, Mysterio (Jake Gyenhaal), who pretends to help Peter defeat these creatures while also helping Peter with his girl problems.
Imagine the shock that comes to Peter when he finds out he passed on the one thing Tony Stark left behind for him to someone who was trying to create chaos among the continents. Although, as you might think, Spider Man would win in the end even though Mysterio put up a fight. However, in this case, the world was turned against Spiderman after some fake footage was released to the world - leaving it wide open for another movie.
If you haven't seen “Spider Man: Far from Home” yet, I would highly recommend taking a trip to your local theater to watch the latest Spider Man adventure film. It is an excellent addition to not just the Marvel series but also the Spider-Man series, too.
