Spider-Man leaves New York for Europe in Disney-owned Marvel's latest film about the web-slinging superhero, who once again has to fight off a new enemy.

Rough cut (no reporter narration).

"Spider-Man: Far From Home" sees protagonist Peter Parker, played by Tom Holland, take on his superhero responsibilities again when Samuel L.

Jackson's super-spy Nick Fury, a regular "Avengers" character, asks him to step up against a new threat.

But Parker is reluctant as he heads off on a school trip to Europe, where he just wants to enjoy himself and share his feelings to love interest MJ, played by singer and actress Zendaya.

The film follows on from Marvel's "Avengers: Endgame", the finale to a decade-long superhero series.

Jackson said Fury was "definitely trying to regain control of his life and a modicum of control of the world" in this movie, which also looks at the concept of fake news and misrepresentation.

"We are living in a time where there is a lot of complication and people don't really know what's going on," Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays newcomer Quentin Beck, said.

The film also introduces a new twist on Spider-Man's early warning reflex, "Spidey Sense", where it is renamed the "Peter Tingle".

"Spider-Man: Far from Home", which begins its worldwide cinema roll-out later this week, is Holland's second film in the leading role as the superhero.

He also made appearances in several "Avengers" movies.
