It looks like Marvel Studios has another hit on their hands. The Spider-Man: Far from Home first reactions are in and they are positive, with some calling it the most "comic book-like" movie out of anything the Marvel Cinematic Universe has churned out to date. Avengers: Endgame is still lurking around the box office and is coming to theaters again this weekend with some new footage to entice repeat viewing and prepare fans for Far From Home.
Spider-Man: Far From Home brings Tom Holland back as the young Peter Parker. However, things are not the same from the last time we saw him. For one, he was Decimated in Infinity War, which had him displaced for five years. Now, his mentor and father figure, Tony Stark, is dead after the tragic events of Endgame. The young hero just wants a normal European summer vacation with his friends, but it doesn't look like Far From Home is going to allow that to happen.
Nick Fury brings Peter Parker together with Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio in an attempt to stop the Elementals, who are wreaking havoc on Europe and reportedly the ones responsible for destroying Mysterio's version of Earth. From the sound of things, Marvel Studios has delivered another hit. The box office estimates were already off to a great start for the upcoming holiday week release, and now it seems those numbers may even get higher through positive word-of-mouth. While we'd all love to know if Mysterio ends up becoming a foe by the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home, the reactions below are completely SPOILER-FREE.
One viewer already wants to go see Spider-Man: Far From Home again and calls it a "Homerun." Apparently the combination of Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal is something MCU fans did not know they needed. Zendaya's performance of MJ has also been praised and the early reactions are happy to say she has an expanded role this time around. While the sequel is getting rave early reviews, there are more than a few who aren't sure if it can get out from beneath the major shadow of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
There have already been some warnings related to Spider-Man: Far From Home. More than one early reaction says MCU fans should already plan on having to see it in the theater twice, which sounds like a good problem to have. "My jaw dropped. And then dropped again. It's a paradigm shift," says one viewer. For fans wondering how Far From Home fits into Endgame, it apparently is the perfect epilogue that will remind MCU fans why they love Marvel Studios so much. Overall, it sounds like Marvel Studios is closing out Phase 3 with another hit. You can check out some of the Spider-Man: Far From Home first impressions below, starting with Heather Catlin's Twitter reaction.
My thoughts on SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME:— Jake Hamilton (@JakesTakes) June 19, 2019
A movie that starts out good and turns great with every minute that passes — leading to one of the best climaxes of any solo Marvel movie.
Tom Holland is, and will forever be, the greatest Spider-Man ever.
This movie is a MUST SEE. pic.twitter.com/lTGf4F5ftq
#SpiderMan#FarFromHome is an absolute home run. It’s SO much fun. It’s huge in itself and for the future of the MCU in the most surprising ways. Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, just a lethal, awesome combo!!— Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) June 19, 2019
I cannot wait to see this movie again. And again. pic.twitter.com/0hYJvKkdjN
I’ve been reading Spider-Man comics non-stop since 1995, so I always breath a massive sigh of relief when his movies are good. I haven’t decided if Far From Home is better than Spider-Verse yet, but it’s certainly the best live action outing. #SpiderManFarFromHomepic.twitter.com/nqI4W5TKqx— Sean Keane (@SpectacularSean) June 19, 2019

Absolutely loved SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME. I’m a huge Mysterio fan and Gyllenhaal nails him. Also the movie is very clever (and funny) how it handles the fallout post ENDGAME in explaining how this world works now.— Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) June 19, 2019
#SpiderManFarFromHome: far superior to its predecessor & really delightful, w/a terrific theme of trust well-threaded throughout. Could say more, but it's spoiler-laden, full of fun secrets, so be careful who you follow and what they say. Jake G is great #SpiderMan#FarFromHome— Rodrigo Perez 📽🎞📺 (@YrOnlyHope) June 19, 2019
#Spiderman#FarFromHome is SUCH a good movie! Jake Gyllenhaal suits up & completely embraces his role in its entirety & he’s clearly having a blast. This is such a refreshing film after the heaviness of #EndGame. The post-credit scenes are a MUST WATCH & will blow your dang mind! pic.twitter.com/wcTh9iHaYq— Maude Garrett (@maudegarrett) June 19, 2019
Spider-Man: Far from Home is an extremely fun, cleverly executed, and frequently hilarious culmination of the MCU’s wall-crawler’s journey so far. Some very sweet moments, sly commentary and deft action set-pieces throughout #SpiderManFarFromHomepic.twitter.com/5sAmxh4E3p— Jim Vejvoda (@JimVejvoda) June 19, 2019
FAR FROM HOME has dethroned Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 & is now favorite Spider-Man film.— Kevin McCarthy (@KevinMcCarthyTV) June 19, 2019
What’s insane is that I can’t even tell u why I’m so in love with this film because it would be a spoiler.
Gyllenhaal is incredible. Holland re-confirms as the best Spidey to date. Amazing. pic.twitter.com/pbynxYIEyQ
