Beware. There are massive Endgame spoilers in this trailer. But it’s been two weeks, if you haven’t seen it yet, what’s wrong with you!
Is Marvel the new Pixar? Always pulling on our heartstrings. It’s tough to sit there and see Peter cry, over the death of his BFF. That’s right folks, Tony Stark just took one for the team and Peter is understandably shaken up by it. Who wouldn’t be? Tony acted as his mentor and a father figure in his life, things that Peter desperately needed. Now he’s gone and Peter doesn’t quite know who to turn to for guidance. One thing he does know, he just wants to go on a regular summer vacation and do regular vacation things with his friends.
The vacation is short lived when Nick Fury hunts him down to discuss a mission. This is where we are introduced to Quentin Beck aka Mysterio, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, a terrific addition to the MCU. This is where we get a bomb dropped on us as his presence is evidence of a multiverse. This is clearly HUGE news, as it will inevitably lead to so many possibilities within the MCU. It may also be their secret back door plan in case they ever want to give Chris Evans or Robert Downey Jr a boat load of money to return to the MCU. Hopefully Marvel decides to put a new spin on Mysterio and makes him somewhat of an anti-hero. We know he’s the master of illusions and it’d be weird for that to be the twist, knowing full well that, well to quote Quicksilver, “you didn’t see that coming?”
Peter needs a new mentor and having Jake Gyllenhaal fill that void would just be incredible and then teasing us with the fact he could become the new Iron Man, or Iron Spider is pretty damn cool. This movie looks great and a fantastic way to end Phase 3 of the MCU. One thing Peter needs to work on, his secret identity skills. Everyone and their dog knows he’s Spider-Man at this point.
