Since Sony and Marvel have yet to release the actual trailer for ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home,’ one intrepid fan decided to make his own animated version based on the description of the trailer that was shown at the Brazilian Comic Con a few months back.
The fan, whose animation studio, Bigoso Animations on Youtube, made a two minute video that, while a little rough around the edges, does manage to capture the look of the costumes and characters from the film based on the artwork and leaked photos we have seen so far. The “trailer” also includes Nick Fury, Maria Hill, Mysterio, the Vulture, the Scorpion, and of course, Spider-Man (not to mention a voice-over cameo from Peter’s Uncle Ben, which I think was borrowed from the Sam Raimi films). Of course, according to Jake Gyllenhaal when talking about Mysterio and Spidey’s relationship in the movie, it sounds very different than what we see in this trailer (which also does not feature the Elementals):
“There are these threats to the world, the Elementals, elemental creatures. And Mysterio is someone who knows about them and wants to make sure that the world is safe from them. And Nick Fury asks him to come on and help because he’s the only one who really understands them. And then he teams up with friendly neighborhood Spider-Man and unfortunately has to make him become more than a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.”
And while the action in the trailer might be a built stilted, and show Mysterio more in the villain role against Spidey instead of as an ally as Gyllenhaal says he will be, the video clearly shows the love for the character and the franchise, the DEMAND to see this trailer, and the underlying frustration as to why they have not released the trailer to the general public when they already released it to the crowd in Brazil.
Here’s what Tom Holland told the crowd at the Brazillian Comic Con CCXP who got to see the actual trailer this new animated one is based on:
“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.”
Now I’m a bit torn personally as I hate how much Sony gives away every time a ‘Spider-Man’ film comes out, and releasing a trailer this early does seem a bit nuts, but on the other hand, they are already releasing a lot of information about the movie, and they already showed the trailer to a large group of fans, and descriptions of what happened in the trailer are already online. So at a certain point, the cat is already out of the bag. My ideal would be for Sony to just release the trailer soon, and then to hold off on any more teasers, trailer, or clips until the film is way closer to release, like maybe a month or so out, but I know that is really unlikely.
Either way, to help ease any suffering you might have from not seeing the real trailer, feel free to check out the fan-made animated one below, and share your thoughts on the whole crazy trailer issue in the comments below that.
