After the release of the latest Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, we got teased about the future of the MCU. We are getting a world beyond Avengers: Endgame with Peter trying to figure out what to do with himself. He is trying to take some time off from being the iconic web-slinger but Fury won’t let that happen. Even after meeting Mysterio, a man from a completely different universe, Peter is still trying to find a way to avoid getting involved in Fury’s plans. A set visit offers a good look at Peter’s internal conflict and Fury’s stubbornness for letting the kid enjoying his vacation.
Peter Parker pulls Nick aside and says, ‘Listen man, I really want to help. It sounds like you’re really up against it. But there’s gotta be somebody else you can call, and besides, last time I went on a field trip, Spider-Man showed up and saved the day. Don’t you think somebody’s going to connect the dots? My secret identity is important to me. If this guy shows up, saves the day, somebody’s going to do the math. I really want to help you, but it seems like you’ve got everyone you need anyway, so if you don’t mind…’ and Nick Fury is like, ‘I totally understand.’ He’s like, ‘You do? That’s great!’ So he thinks he’s off the hook and he takes off.
Fury not only brings Peter back into the game during his vacation but he also provides him with a brand new suit. Yes, alongside the Iron Spider, the Homecoming Spider-Man suit and a brand new variation in black, we will also get a completely black stealth suit. The MCU has given us the most variations on a Spidey suit for one actor that it will be exciting to see what other redesigns we might see in the future. Here’s hoping we get a similar shot of Spidey’s various suit designs like Iron Man’s armor wall. Perhaps this comparison is also intentional when one considers the theme that Far From Home is going for. Still, the brand new designs have some interesting inspirations from comics and the MCU’s history.
“It’s inspired by a bunch of different looks in the comics. We have Noir, we have Big Time, but when [Marvel Studios’ head of visual development] Ryan Meinerding was designing this, he had all of those past S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in mind, so it’s very reminiscent of what Black Widow or Hawkeye would wear. It’s got amazing little details. This would be the patch where there would be a S.H.I.E.L.D. logo if S.H.I.E.L.D. were still a thing, stuff like that. This is supposed to be a really tactical version of the suit. It doesn’t have all of the bells and whistles of the suit Tony gave him. But that’s OK, it allows him to operate in Europe without everyone just assuming Spider-Man’s on the scene.”
One of the largest reveals in the last trailer alongside the stealth suit was also the inclusion of a new variation of his original suit. It has more black elements and it looks like it may be a more advanced version. Maybe we will get a chance to see Peter create his own suit and take inspirations from the stealth suit he gets from Fury. There is the question as of when he switches to the brand new costume and it looks like the stealth suit will mostly dominate the second arc.
He wears it for a big chunk of the movie. He gets it not long after he crosses paths with the water elemental [villain], and then he wears it right up until the third act of the movie. By that point, allegiances have shifted and so on, so maybe he’s decided he doesn’t want to wear Nick Fury’s costume anymore. It is a big part of the movie, and he is wearing it for more or less the second act of the film.”
The most interesting reveal is that Peter will at one point abandon Fury’s mission for some reason. Anyone who has read a comic will most likely point to Mysterio for being the reason why there might be a fallout between Peter and Fury. There is still some time until the film is released in theatres but it is always fun to speculate what this comment may entail.
What do you think of the stealth suit? What are your theories for the film?
