Featuring 100% fewer standoffs with a scheming purple fiend (unless there's something the trailers aren't giving away), Cherry represents directors Joe and Anthony Russo's next step in filmmaking away from the MCU. They're sticking with one element of it, though, with Tom Holland the focus of the film and the new, full trailer.

Cherry, which was adapted by Angela Russo-Otstot and Jessica Goldberg from Nico Walker's book, parallels the true life story of the author. Holland stars in the title role as an unhinged character who drifts from dropping out of college to serving in Iraq as an Army medic and is only anchored by his one true love, Emily (Ciara Bravo). When Cherry returns home a war hero, he battles the demons of undiagnosed PTSD and spirals into drug addiction, surrounding himself with a menagerie of depraved misfits. Draining his finances, Cherry turns to bank robbing to fund his addiction, shattering his relationship with Emily along the way. Walker, who also turned to crime, was caught in 2011 and scored early release in October 2019.
