Spider-Man: Far From Home has unveiled a new embarrassing name for the iconic spider-sense. Marissa Tomei's Aunt May is the one to coin the phrase and Tom Holland's Peter Parker isn't very happy with it. Holland and the rest of the cast and crew are currently busy on the promotional tour for the highly anticipated sequel, which hits theaters in a few weeks. Holland has been doing an excellent job of keeping the Marvel Cinematic Universe's secrets to himself this time around, despite getting into some recent hot water over Avengers: Endgame.
In a new Spider-Man: Far from Home TV spot, Peter Parker can be seen in his bedroom as Aunt May comes in and throws a banana at him, which hits him in the face. May didn't do it to harm her nephew, but instead wanted to see if he could dodge the fruit without knowing it was coming. She asks, "you can dodge bullets, but not bananas?" She then gives the MCU their new name for the spider-sense. She had this to say.
"I thought you could sense that with your Peter Tingle..."
Peter Parker is slightly embarrassed about the use of the term "Peter Tingle" and he should be. The young superhero should hope that Aunt May doesn't refer to his spider-sense that way publicly because it's pretty terrible. It brings up all kinds of things and Spider-Man: Far From Home is not one of them. The cast recently revealed "Peter Tingle" is the new name, but they did not mention whether or not anyone else uses the term in the sequel besides Aunt May.
Spider-Man: Far From Home looks like it has the potential to be a pretty dark entry in the Spider-Verse. Peter Parker has been through a lot over the past few years and losing Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame has been all over the promotional material for the movie. With that being said, director Jon Watts chose not to focus on the darkness. He explains.
"This isn't the start of a new, dark 'emo' phase for Peter. Even though he's gone through all these dramatic and traumatic events, he's still the same Peter Parker we know and love. It's seeing how he deals with those things that's interesting for me."
Even with all of the doom and gloom surrounding Avengers: Endgame, Peter Parker is going to rise above and partner with Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio to fight off the Elementals in Spider-Man: Far From Home. He is going to take the tools Tony Stark gave him and move on to become even better than he was before. But, will Mysterio end up turning the tables and learning the secrets of the "Peter Tingle"? We'll just have to wait and see. Until then, you can check out the Spider-Man: Far From Home "Peter Tingle} TV spot below, thanks to the Tom Holland New Twitter account.
