Marvel Studios’ third blockbuster of 2019, Spider-Man: Far From Home, gets the Honest Trailer treatment, including the obvious Mysterio twist.
With Spider-Man: Far From Home now available on home video, the folks at Screen Junkies have taken the opportunity to give Jon Watts’ film their patented Honest Trailer treatment. While Far From Home is by no means raked over the coals in its Honest Trailer, nor should it be, the Spidey sequel does take some deserved knocks, especially for its central twist revolving around the villain Mysterio, a plot turn so obvious it’s a wonder Marvel even bothered trying to conceal it. Check the Honest Trailer out below.
“Marvel fans everywhere, prepare to get a feature-length dopamine rush off that sweet sweet intro franchise consistency featuring tons of Iron Man, loads of Endgame, juicy kernels of Phase 4, and…I feel like I’m forgetting something…oh yeah, Spider-Man goes on vacation,” the trailer’s voiceover says.
The Honest Trailer also spends some time on a criticism espoused by many Spider-Man fans, even those who enjoyed the film, that being how even in death so much of the focus is on Iron Man/Tony Stark. That fact is even turned into a gag with the EDITH acronym, which stands for “even dead, I’m the hero.” Spider-Man’s name is in front of the title, but most of Far From Home very much feels like an MCU movie first and a Spider-Man movie second. It’s up to the individual fan to decide if that’s a winning formula.
