It's a big morning as we just received the first trailer for what is currently the last officially scheduled film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man: Far From Home. Both the North American and the International trailer hit the internet at the same time and while those two trailers are usually pretty close to identical, the international version of Far From Home gives us significantly different footage and even answers one question the main trailer leaves open. Check it out.
The first 30 seconds of the international trailer are completely different when compared to the other trailer. While the standard trailer opens with Peter and May at some sort of fundraiser and an awkward bit with Happy Hogan, the international trailer opens with Peter going through airport security in Europe. His bag is opened to reveal that May has tossed Peter's Spider-Man costume in his bag, which he almost forgot it.
This is interesting because in the other trailer, but not this one, we specifically see where Peter decides to not take the costume with him to Europe, wanting to simply have fun on his European trip.
This trailer also contains a number of different shots that don't appear elsewhere. They're mostly just establishing shots of Europe and Peter and Ned in an airplane, nothing that's going to spawn fan theories about what will happen in Far From Home, but if you're hungry for as much content as you can get, the trailer has it.
Though it's missing MJ's follow line to Peter where she tells him he looks pretty.
It also has Ned delivering a different line, or a different part of the same line, when he gets tranquilized by Nick Fury.
From the point where Nick Fury appears, confirming that, whatever else happens, at least one guy who got dusted by Thanos will return, the trailers basically fall in sync. We see Spider-Man swinging around Europe, we see him in a black suit, we see a giant water monster and the appearance by Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio, and seemingly as an ally to Spider-Man rather than his traditional role as a foe.
It's not uncommon for international trailers to give us new or different information, but that frequently happens when an international trailer gets released by itself, weeks or months after the domestic version. When the two come out side-by-side, they usually turn out pretty identical.
The international trailer likely wanted to spend more time focusing on the European setting, since that's one of the places that this trailer will be seen, as it might help draw in more viewers. That's assuming, of course, that "new Spider-Man movie" isn't going to do the job on its own.
Spider-Man: Far from Home hits theaters in July.
