In the trailer just released, the young superhero doesn't even bother packing his Spider-Man costume, saying, "Europe doesn't really need a friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man."

But his plans change in Venice when perturbed spymaster Nick Fury (played by Samuel L. Jackson) shows up to deal with several creature attacks that are plaguing the continent.

So Parker swings back into action and encounters the enigmatic criminal Mysterio. Portrayed by Jake Gyllenhaal, the villain warns Peter, "You don't want any part of this," as he tries to destroy London.

"Spider-Man: Far From Home," directed by Jon Watts, hits theatres early July with retrning cast members Zendaya as MJ, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Jon Favreau as Harold "Happy" Hogan, and Jacob Batalon as Parker's best friend Ned.

And in other teaser trailer news, albeit brief and showing only a glimpse of the Ecto-1, Sony Pictures also released a teaser for the upcoming Jason Reitman Ghostbusters movie, a sequel to the 1984 classic.

Reitman's father, Ivan, directed the original "Ghostbusters," starring Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis, and Sigourney Weaver. 

Jason Reitman co-wrote the screenplay with Gil Kenan for the sequel. He plans to shoot the film this summer. Variety reported Tuesday story details are still being kept under wraps, but sources say Reitman has begun testing teenagers for four mystery roles.

The franchise is a priority for the studio, despite the disappointment over its 2016 reboot of "Ghostbusters," starring Melissa McCarthy and directed by Paul Feig. This installment will not be connected to the 2016 movie.
