Avengers: Endgame may have wrapped up a lot of Marvel Cinematic Universe plot threads, but it’s Spider-Man: Far From Home that’ll bring an end to Phase 3 of this superhero franchise. Although the Web-Slinger popped up in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, it’s been two years since his last solo movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming came out, and judging from early reactions, the sequel will go down as another critical hit on Spidey’s film resume.
Naturally Spider-Man: Far From Home is introducing new characters, most notably Quentin Beck, a.k.a. Mysterio, who is being positioned as a good guy (for now?) and claims to be from another Earth. However, there are also many characters who we’ve previously seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming and other MCU movies who will be back for Far From Home. Let’s go over those returning players now, shall we?
Duh, it wouldn’t make any sense not to bring back Tom Holland’s Peter Parker for Spider-Man: Far From Home! The sequel will see Peter still mourning the loss of his mentor, Tony Stark, as he goes on a class trip to Europe over the summer. Unfortunately for the teen, who was hoping to get a break from fighting evildoers and wearing costumes, he’ll be dragged back into action to battle the Elementals alongside Mysterio.
While Joe and Anthony Russo said last year that May Parker survived Thanos’ snap, it turns out that wasn’t the case at all. Fortunately, like her nephew, she’s back among the living, and while she was initially angered to find out that Peter was Spider-Man at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, the previews for Spider-Man: Far From Home indicate she’s good with it now. While May won’t be accompanying Peter on his trip, it does look like romance is in the air for her during Far From Home, but we’ll get back to that later.
