Spider-Man fans had a little disappointment this week, as the much-rumored ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ trailer did not end up premiering as supposedly scheduled, leaving many to wonder what exactly happened. Especially when Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal were at CCXP in Brazil where they showed the trailer to attendees, but Marvel and Sony did not release it to the rest of the world. Here’s what Holland told the crowd at CCXP:
“We debuted the new Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer just for you guys exclusively, because sometimes we just want to show our support, and you guys have been so amazing to us ever since I got this job. And I guess we just wanted to come and say thank you really, and that was our way for Marvel and Sony to say thank you. And I hope you enjoyed it. We loved it…It’s amazing to see something you worked so hard on become a reality, and then share it with the people who really want to see it. So again, thank you for having us, CCXP has been amazing.”
With co-star Jake Gyllenhaal (who will be playing the villain Mysterio in the live-action debut of the character) also telling the crowd:
“And you know for us, Brazil is far from home, so it only fits. Show it to a group of people that we expect and admire in a country that we love far from home.”
Personally, I think it would make more sense for a ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ trailer to debut with the premiere of ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ to cross-promote the character across both films, but that is just my way of thinking. It could also have to do with Marvel needing to ensure the trailer somehow does not remove all tension from ‘Avengers: Endgame’ as it shows that at least ONE hero that we thought dead will be resurrected after the 4th Avengers film. But only Marvel and Sony know the real reason at this point, and they have no need to share that information.
Here’s hoping the trailer does happen to come out soon (keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll see it when I go see ‘Into the Spider-verse’ late Thursday night.) Until then, we’ll just have to keep on waiting to see what Marvel, Sony, and Disney have in store for the next adventure of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.
