Sony’s early Spider-Man: Far From Home marketing is appears to be hiding spoilers from Marvel Studios’ highly secretive Avengers 4.
Potential spoilers for Avengers 4 below!
With Spider-Man: Far From Home coming out 2 months after Avengers 4, many Marvel fans are wondering how the film will be marketed since Kevin Feige said Far From Home takes place right after Avengers 4 and launches Phase 4. Marvel Studios has yet to give Avengers 4 a proper title or officially announce their upcoming slate but both films are reportedly releasing their first trailers this week so their marketing campaigns will finally begin.
Spider-Man’s new Far From Home suits were on display at Brazil’s CCXP18 and it features an interesting omission. Set photos leaked during Far From Home‘s shoot of Spider-Man sporting a new black stealth suit. One of the most interesting details was the SHIELD logo featured on the suit. Of course, SHIELD fell after the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier but is seems the organization makes a return after Avengers 4 and Spider-Man becomes a member. However, an Instagram post from Omelete shows that the CCXP stealth suit display doesn’t feature the SHIELD logo, giving us our first glimpse at how Sony will protect Avengers 4‘s secrets while promoting Far From Home.
Details on the plot are currently under wraps, though the film will follow Peter Parker as he joins his friends on a summer vacation in Europe and reportedly stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio. Introduced in The Amazing Spider-Man #13, the most well-known incarnation of Mysterio is a special effects wizard named Quentin Beck and the character has been a frequent foe for the web-head since his debut.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, Numan Acar, J.B. Smoove, Oli Hill, Remy Hii, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released in theaters on July 5, 2019.
