This Honest Trailer For Spider-Man: Far From Home Makes Fun Of The Most Obvious Plot Twist All Time

Did they really think we'd believe that?!

Spider-Man: Far From Home has finally received the Honest Trailer treatment and pokes fun at the Mysterio twist and the whole Spider-Man isn’t Iron Man thing.

Let’s cut the movie some slack first, it had to follow Avengers: Endgame, the biggest movie of all time, and not only that, but Tony Stark’s death and Peter Parker’s reaction to it was a huge part of the film – because of that, they couldn’t really advertise the film properly without spoiling Endgame.

Also, critics and audiences alike were left pretty happy with Far From Home, so there is that.

Now that the movie is available to buy, the people at Screen Junkies gave the film its own Honest Trailer and the film does take some deserved hits, especially for trying to trick us into thinking Mysterio was a good guy.

Considering the fact Mysterio is one of Spider-Man’s most famous comic book villains, most fans knew he was an untrustworthy character. And because of this, when Peter put his trust in Mysterio, only for it to be later revealed he was the film’s villain, it wasn’t really a huge surprise.

The Honest Trailer also pokes fun at just how much focus lies with Iron Man/Tony Stark, I mean, they even joke in the film that he chose the name EDITH because it stands for ‘even dead, I’m the hero’.

It does make Far From Home feel more like an MCU movie than a standalone Spidey flick, which would have made the Sony/Marvel split even more tragic had they gone through with it. How could Sony have resolved the issues in the second film if they couldn’t refer to 90 per cent of what happened?

Unsurprisingly, the trailer also makes fun of the Sony/Marvel split, which would have been devastating if it had gone through. But reports last week suggested the companies formed a new partnership because of Tom Holland himself.

Sources told The Hollywood Reporter Tom “made multiple appeals to Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger and Sony film chairman Tom Rothman to reach a resolution, announced Sept. 27, for Marvel to produce a third Spider-Man movie for Sony, and for the character to appear in at least one additional Disney-Marvel film.”

Tom also reportedly “leaned on Rothman to re-engage with Disney,” and mentioned the fan support for Spider-Man to remain in the MCU.

So, yeah, he’s a real-life superhero.

Here's How Spider-Man: Far From Home's Cliffhanger Can Be Solved

Very interesting!

Spider-Man: Far From Home’s mid-credits scene showed Peter Parker (Tom Holland) getting outed as the webslinger by J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons) thanks to information from Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) and his pals.

In the mid-credit scene, Mysterio’s colleagues edited a video of the final confrontation between the villain and Spider-Man to frame Parker as his murderer as well as the mastermind behind the fake Elemental plot. They then revealed his secret identity to the world, something that’s never happened to Spidey in the movies.

While this could be setting up a very bleak third movie, another post-credit scene showcased an easy fix to the whole situation.

In the movie, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) recruit Spider-Man into getting involved with Mysterio in the first place.

However, we later find out Fury and Hill were never actually there, instead Captain Marvel’s Skrull general Talos (Ben Mendolsohn) and his wife Soren (Sharon Blynn) were posing as the duo after receiving orders from the real Nick Fury.

While we obviously want to know more about Fury and the Skrulls, the shapeshifters could be key to solving Spidey’s problem.

Talos or Soren could easily impersonate Peter in public, while the real Spider-Man appears alongside him to ‘prove’ they’re not the same person.

It might seem a little wild, but a similar situation has occurred in the comics according to ScreenRant.

A feverish Peter tells Harry Osborn, Mary Jane Watson, Gwen and George Stacy his real identity, but later organises a situation to have him attacked by the ‘real Spider-Man’ to fool them again.

In that situation, ‘Spider-Man’ was Hobie Brown AKA the Prowler, who wore Peter’s costume.

There have been other situations in the comics where Daredevil, Patriot, Iron Fist and Nightcrawler teamed up to help Spidey, however, given that none of these characters have appeared in the MCU, it’s unlikely they’ll help him out of this bind so the Skrulls could do it instead.

Talos was embarrassed by Mysterio and feels guilty about not protecting Spider-Man, so it wouldn’t be all that surprising if he felt guilty enough to help him recover his secret identity.

So, it’ll be interesting to see whether Sony and Marvel take this option to protect Peter’s identity or if they choose to keep Peter out in the open and vulnerable.

The other option is that the entire thing was actually another Mysterio illusion and it never actually happened? It’s not impossible.

Peggy Was Totally Lying To Steve In Captain America: Winter Solider And It All Makes Sense Now

This scene feels very different now.

In Avengers: Endgame we find out that Steve Rogers AKA Captain America went back in time and lived out his days with the love of his life, Peggy Carter.

Peggy and Steve first met during World War II, but their time together was cut short when Steve was forced to crash Red Skull’s ship into ice. However, they were later reunited when Steve was unfrozen, but it didn’t last long as Peggy sadly passed away from old age. In Endgame we find out Steve actually lived a full life with Peggy, we just never knew.

This means that after Steve goes back in time there are technically two Steves in the MCU, the one we see in all the movies and another one who was with Peggy, at least according to the film’s writers.

Writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus wrote Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, so it’s safe to say they know Cap very well. And they’ve previously said they’ve had the idea of Steve returning to be with Peggy for a long time.

So, this means that when Peggy sees Steve in Captain America: The Winter Soldier she knew about his future and was lying to him, reports ScreenRant.

In the movie, Steve visits Peggy in hospital and she tells him her only regret was that Steve didn’t get to live his life. However, she knows that Steve will live a full life with her one day.

She tells him, “The world has changed and none of us can go back. All we can do is our best and sometimes the best we can do is to start over.”

This feels very different once you know Markus and McFeely’s explanation about wanting them to be together.

This scene in Winter Soldier is where the time travel set up first happened. It was for this reason we never saw any photos of Peggy and her husband.

In an interview with Peggy from 1958, she says that Steve saved the man who would become her husband back in WWII. She says, “Even after he died, Steve was still changing my life.”

As we know, he didn’t die, he was just frozen, but it’s pretty crazy watching that back now knowing they got married.

Peggy had to lie to Steve, because if she told him what happened his mindset and decisions would have likely changed.

However, she could have maybe told him not to pursue a relationship with her great-niece!
