The Elementals have been confirmed to be the antagonists in Spider-Man: Far From Home and will be based on B-List Spider-Man villains.
According to a report by, ScreenRant, the Elementals are confirmed to be based on a group of B-List villains for Spider-Man: Far From Home. Rather than being immortal powerful beings, the Elementals will be much more different. The Elementals in Spider-Man: Far From Home are going to be more of a group of mindless, tough monsters. This may come as a surprise for some fans, but the MCU is known to have switched certain storylines in order to fit the stories that they are crafting. It was recently revealed that Quentin Beck a.k.a. Mysterio is from another universe, so perhaps not everything will be as it seems in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
According to Spider-Man producer Eric Carroll, the Water Elemental is based on Hydro-Man. Here’s what Carroll had to say about the Water Elemental.
“He’s of course inspired by… a B-list Spider-Man villain called Hydro-Man… He can get his power from [Venice’s] Grand Canal, so the larger water body he has access to can allow him to grow in size and strength. So that will be part of the strategy that he uses to, of course, defeat him.”
As for the Fire Elemental, Eric Carroll stated that it is based on Molten Man and described him as follows:
“Molten Man was always made of molten gold. A yellow, molten metal. So we took that, and again, we think it’s a really unique take on this kind of monster and we’re super excited for this sequence.”
Eric Carroll described Spider-Man: Far From Home as a new story for the character. In the previous film, Spider-Man had a more personal connection to the film’s villain and relied on strength to take him down in the end. Now, in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the team behind the film wanted Spider-Man to take down his villains using other abilities. In this case, Spider-Man may need to rely on his intellect:
“They all exist in the comic books for so long that we decided we think that’s because it puts Spider-Man in all these interesting positions. He can’t punch this guy – he has to use his real superpower, which is his genius-level intellect.”

‘Aladdin’ Images Show Vibrant New Look At Naomi Scott As Jasmine
The latest Aladdin images showoff Jasmine's (Naomi Scott) incredible wardrobe.
Entertainment Weekly has revealed some brand new photos from Disney's upcoming live-action remake of their animated classic, Aladdin. This collection of photos focuses on Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and her vibrant wardrobe collection.
Naomi Scott spoke to EW about Jasmine's colorful wardrobe choices in Aladdin and how it plays a part in her character, the world and the journey she goes through:
"The main conversation is structure versus freedom that I think is obviously is the metaphor for her journey as a character. If she’s wearing something that’s structured and beautiful, it can’t just be the sake of it looking great, it needs to be connected to the story."
EW reports that there are around 10 new outfits that Naomi Scott will don as Jasmine in the film, giving her the opportunity to showcase her beauty as the beloved princess as Aladdin (Mena Massoud) attempts to woo her.
Aladdin costume designer Michael Wilkinson discussed the approach taken to bringing the new costumes to life in live-action form:
"When you’re designing the costumes for a live action film that’s based on animation, there’s an opportunity to take these characters and give them literally more depth and details, really think about them as fully-fleshed people with complex psychologies and interesting personalities, so it was wonderful to explore who Jasmine really was and be able to express that through her many costumes in the film."
