Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio is definitely one of those "worst kept secret" type deals, but at least he's having fun with it.

Oh great, even more spoilerific stuff for us. I wouldn't mind if we get a teaser then a full trailer, but they really need to slow their pace.

Well, one of them is the international trailer, which is usually identical to the American trailer, with maybe one or two slight differences.

I assume this trailer was concocted by Sony's marketing people, especially since it's Sony releasing the trailer, so I hope they were careful to be mindful of Avengers 4 spoilers :sweat:.

Thoughts:

- I wonder how long before this footage or screengrabs from it leak online ;)?

- The fact that they're emphasizing that Spider-Man's famous makes me wonder if they're going to turn it around with this movie or building up to an event that turns Spider-Man into the public menace he's viewed as in the comics :ack:.

- I dunno, I have a hard time seeing Peter leaving his suit behind. From what we've seen of his character so far he seems like the type who would have taken it as a precaution or plan to do Spidey stuff out of the country :shrug:.

- I guess we know why he ends up creating the "stealth suit" and why it looks more handmade. Although there's still the question of who made the new main suit...

- Poor Ganke getting the raw deal of MCU sidekicks :p.

- I'm really curious how they'll spin a Peter and Michelle romance since, even if you spin Michelle as having an interest in Peter from her actions towards him in the movie, I'm not sure if he'd be so quickly attracted to her. Also, should we still keep viewing her as an MJ stand-in :sweat:?

- Aunt May and Happy dating? Why? Just why :(?

- They confirmed the fishbowl :D!!!

Elemental creatures? Okay... so a consequence of the Decimation, these creatures start coming to Earth or just an elaborate hoax created by Mysterio to help his real agenda. But that explains the rumors of Sandman and Hydroman earlier this year. Doesn't ring any bells from Marvel lore.

It was always a longshot to release on Saturday, imo. Because with Homecoming, they only had a clip shown at CCXP on December 2 and the news outlets only had clip descriptions and Sony Brazil released only footage of audience reaction then the next week December 7, they debuted the trailer and international trailer via Jimmy Kimmel's show. I'd say keep an eye on Kimmel this coming week to see if there are new episodes like December 14.

The fact that they're emphasizing that Spider-Man's famous makes me wonder if they're going to turn it around with this movie or building up to an event that turns Spider-Man into the public menace he's viewed as in the comics :ack:.
Tough break for that real life guy that climbs buildings in Europe. :p

Makes you wonder if the suit has a function to help it avoid detection from scans at the airport.

I can see Fury giving him some black op gear and he improvises the goggle eyes.

Aunt May and Happy dating? Why? Just why :(?
Wha-huh?!

It's Mysterio. It has to be an elaborate hoax that he's fooling everyone with. Mysterio pretending to be a hero through crimes he concocted dates back to his original appearance ;).

I'll actually give him credit if he's able to genuinely pull the wool over Fury's eye(s) :p.
It just seems implausible. Fury who suspected HYDRA infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D., who is always 10 steps ahead of you, doesn't trust anyone -- gets fooled by Mysterio? Some of the info from this panel is 'unexpected'. Granted it could be they are changing Quentin Beck's backstory to be some merc for hire.

I wonder if there are any "zombie channels" within WarnerMedia's portfolio that can be flipped.
Ahh, finally, the weekend is here. And this isn't just any old weekend. This is the weekend that SpongeBob and Patrick go camping. Wouldn't it be great if they got lost in the woods and never came back?
The Aladdin remake is one of few films that I am actively hoping underperforms. The more we can convince Disney to stop giving animation the finger with these remakes, the better.
I can't believe Russell fricking died.
