Nick Fury hijacks Peter Parker's vacation in first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home

Mr. Stark, we're starting to feel a little better ... The first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home is here, and it's helping with the emotional trauma caused by Thanos' deadly snap. Possibly set before the traumatic events of Infinity War, or perhaps after the events of Endgame that set the world back right, the movie finds Peter Parker (Tom Holland) going on a Eurotrip with his friends over the summer break.

Even so, the biggest reveal of the trailer is that of Jake Gyllenhaal's Quentin Beck/Mysterio, who, according to certain folks who saw the trailer at Brazil's CCXP, is actually not the movie's main villain. In fact, rumors say he is actually a good guy who helps Peter fight the Elementals, ancient beings that, like The Last Airbender's Aang, are able to control all four natural elements: earth (Magnum), air (Zephyr), fire (Hellfire), and water (Hydron).

Judging by the trailer below, that seems to be the case. Following in the footsteps of the first movie's end credits, which used "Blitzkrieg Bop," we are treated to another Ramones tune, "I Wanna Be Sedated."

Okay, there's a lot to unpack here, so buckle up, kiddos.

For one thing, Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) is aware of her nephew's secret identity after the final scene of Spider-Man: Homecoming. For another, Tony Stark's driver/security guard/best friend Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) is crushing on May pretty hard.

Beyond that, Peter wants to enjoy his summer vacation (and get closer to Zendaya's MJ), meaning that he leaves his Spidey suit behind. This proves to be the wrong call because Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) shows up to ask for his help in defeating those elemental villains we mentioned earlier.

"Are you going to step up or not?" the eye-patched S.H.I.E.L.D. veteran asks Peter point-blank.

So yeah, Peter's vacation is kinda ruined, but at least he gets a cool gliding suit, right?! Oh, and Gyllenhaal's comic-book-accurate Mysterio looks so awesome when he makes an appearance to fight Hydron.

Jon Watts returns as director, as does the cast from Homecoming: Michael Keaton (Vulture), Tony Revolori (Flash Thompson), and, of course, fan favorite Jacob Batalon (Ned). Fury's right-hand woman, Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), is also a part of the film's ensemble roster.

Written by Homecoming alumni Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into theaters July 5.

As an added bonus, here's the international trailer, which features the gag of a customs agent disregarding the Spider-Man suit in Peter's suitcase and telling him he can't travel with a banana:
