What the ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ poster tells us about Peter Parker’s future

Warning: Spoilers for “Avengers: Endgame” below.

 “Spider-Man: Far From Home” has a new poster, and it’s centered around Iron Man.

The new “Spider-Man” film shared the new poster to its Twitter account Tuesday. The poster shows Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland) crouched on the top of a building with a mural honoring Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) right behind him.

“I don’t think Tony would have done what he did, if he didn’t know you were going to be here after he was gone,” the tweet reads. The quote comes from Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau), who says those exact words in the “Far From Home” trailer.

In “Avengers: Endgame,” Iron Man saves the world after he dons a makeshift version of the Infinity Gauntlet and snaps Thanos (Josh Brolin) out of existence. Iron Man and Spider-Man had a close father/son-style relationship in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Why it matters: The poster is a clear sign that “Far From Home” will lean into Parker’s grief over the death of Iron Man, since the two were as close to family as possible. As the trailer shows, Parker’s grief for his mentor will play a role in the film.

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” hits theaters July 2.
