Wow, there’s a LOT to unpack in this newest trailer. First off if you haven’t already, go check out my breakdown for the First Far From Home Trailer from back in January. Once you’ve done that c’mon back over here and dive right in.
A huge amount of questions we had about the MCU post Avengers: Endgame are answered in this trailer. It is chock full of spoilers for that movie so if you haven’t seen that yet be forewarned. I mean, even Tom Holland himself starts this trailer off telling you that there are spoilers inbound. So with all that said…
There’s still no word on if this movie takes place before or after The Snappening as there’s no mention of it in the trailer. But what we do get info on is our movie’s antagonist… maybe. Jake Gyllenhaal shows up as Mysterio to fight off what I originally thought was Hydro-Man and maybe Sandman but the prevailing internet theory is that he is “pulling a Syndrome” from The Incredibles and creating these monstrous threats to portray himself as a hero. To what end? We don’t know yet, probably money and fame. Quentin Beck/Mysterio is a failed actor and special effects artist who, in the comics, takes to a life of crime when things don’t work out in his chosen profession. He uses his skill set, creating illusions, to aid him in his heists. I really like that the MCU adjacent Spider-Man movies dive a little deeper into Spidey’s rogues gallery. We’ve gotten some of his biggest foes in other movies so it’s great to see characters like The Vulture (Michael Keaton) and Mysterio get their due.
Ok, enough of all that. Let’s Talk About The First Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer! Continue reading →

This week, the guys cover some movie news and ALL THE TV NEWS!!! AGAIN!!! Seriously though, it’s that time of year and after last weeks deep dive, the networks released a whole mess of trailer for their mediocre new shows! Yay!
First let me just say thank you to whatever deity deals with movie trailer releases. After getting the abysmal Justice League trailer over the weekend we are blessed with this pretty great Spider-Man: Homecoming one.
I’ve already covered a ton of the Spider-Man/Sony history in my Breakdown of the first trailer so I won’t rehash that here. I will note, however, that this trailer doesn’t focus as much on Peter/Spider-Man being in high school. That was the first trailer’s job to give us that John Hughes Movie feel that they are going for. This one is more about the story and the action. We get a lot of both here so let’s not waste any more time. Let’s Talk About The Second Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer: Continue reading →
