Spider-Man: Far From Home will carry over the older hero mentor dynamic that Peter Parker and Tony Stark had in Homecoming, but this time his older mentor will be Nick Fury - and he'll have a different approach to his relationship with the younger hero.

“If Tony is like the supportive cool uncle, Fury’s more like the mean new stepdad," director Jon Watts told USA Today, saying he's been trying to bring Fury into his Marvel films since Spider-Man: Homecoming. "Fury doesn’t see himself in Peter Parker. Fury sees Peter Parker as an asset that he needs who is too preoccupied with a bunch of high school problems. Part of my pitch for the very first movie was bringing Nick Fury in and making him the mean substitute teacher.”

Along with Fury, Cobie Smulders' Agent Maria Hill will play a role in the film as the pair recruit Spider-Man to take on the Elementals, and potentially team up with Mysterio while Peter Parker is on a class trip through Europe.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is due out in North American theaters July 2.
