The first Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer just premiered at Brazil Comic-Con. Sadly, only those who were there get to see it for now, with Sony/Marvel holding back on the online release. However, the stars in attendance teased a lot of interesting details about the characters. Jake Gyllenhaal is joining the film as the mysterious Mysterio, and apparently his suit -- like Gretchen Wieners' hair -- will be full of secrets. Here's what Gyllenhall said:

It was incredible, the suit is an incredible suit, and there are a lot of different secrets in the suit that I think are really cool. So there are a lot of things revealed about that suit.

Jake Gyllenhaal shared his suit teases via a Spider-Man: Far From Home panel. Collider was there, and said the trailer ends with a shot of Gyllenhaal as Mysterio in the suit.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) both shared more funny details about the suit in a video interview with Omelete. Here's scoop on the unexpected disco setting of Mysterio's suit:

Jake Gyllenhaal: It lights up.Tom Holland: Sometimes the lights don't light up the right way, they go disco colors.Jake: There actually was one day when they all just started going different colors. And I can't see the lights [from within the suit.]Tom: So you're doing a scene with him...Jake: ... and everyone would start looking at me like...Tom: ... ugh, it's so bright!Jake: The coolest thing about the suit is that there are some major secrets in it, and that are pretty cool.Tom: Totally.

It sounds like Spider-Man: Far From Home is going to go out of its way to surprise us. Not only does Mysterio's suit have secrets, Mysterio himself is already throwing us for a loop. It was revealed via the actors at this Comic-Con that Mysterio -- presumed to be the villain -- was actually hired by Nick Fury and works with Peter Parker.

Tom Holland revealed that his stealth suit -- which he calls "the comfy suit" was designed by Nick Fury, although he wouldn't explain what it was designed to do "because it's a secret." (Finally, Tom Holland has learned to stop spoiling.) However, he added some teases on his own new suit:

It's really cool, it has all sorts of cool little features. For me as an actor, it was really interesting to try and figure out how Spider-Man would move and act in such different attire.

Jacob Batalon, who plays Peter Parker's best friend Ned, shared more details on the plot of Spider-Man: Far From Home:

It's basically just about the kids going on a European vacation. We go to London, we go to Prague, we go everywhere. And it's just a really fun thing. There's a lot of dynamics that go on, like a lot of relationship stuff, a lot of cool funny stuff, and fun stunt stuff. The main focus is for [Peter] not to be Spider-Man, per se. But he gets dragged into it. He reluctantly saves the world again with Mysterio. Mysterio is a good guy in this. They're both teaming up to kill it -- kill the game. To defeat all these Elementals monsters.

That's very different from what fans may have expected from Mysterio and Peter Parker. Watch more from the stars' Omelete interview toward the start of this video:

Spider-Man: Far From Home will eventually release a trailer to the rest of us. For now, we have to wait. The Sony/Marvel film will open July 5, 2019. Here are more amazing movies to look forward to in 2019.
