Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Jacob Batalon Provide New Plot Details From 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'

Well Saturday has come and gone, and we never got the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer we were all expecting. It makes sense Marvel didn't want to steal their own thunder with the Avengers: Endgame trailer still dominating the internet, but lucky fans at CCXP18 in Brazil were still able to see the footage we'll apparently be getting later this month. Stars Tom Holland, Jacob Batalon, and Jake Gyllenhaal all took to the stage and offered some very revealing details about the film's plot and villains. Contrary to what we've believed all this time, Mysterio will apparently be teaming up with Spider-Man in the movie to face an even greater threat. Not only that, but he has actually been hand picked by Nick Fury to do the task.

This will of course be confusing to comic book fans who are used to Quentin Beck aka Mysterio being one of Spider-Man's greatest foes. Gyllenhaal teased that the character and his relationship to Spider-Man are like nothing we've ever seen before, and this relationship is apparently at the heart of the film. The villains of the movie will instead be creatures known as Elementals, and Mysterio is the only person who has an understanding of how to stop them. This explains why Fury needs him to help Spider-Man take them down, but fans are already suspicious Beck may be one who created them. We all know Mysterio is a master of illusions, so pulling a trick like this seems like something his comic book counterpart would do.
With that twist in mind, the rest of the trailer goes pretty much as we'd expect. Peter Parker is seen in Venice with his classmates such as Michelle, Ned, and Flash on a field trip. We all get a scene of Nick Fury meeting Peter for the first time and providing him with the stealth suit we've seen in set photos. Tom Holland has teased this suit is intended for a specific mission but he won't reveal what. We also get a shot of Gyllenhaal in the full Mysterio suit from the set photos but also with the classic "fish bowl" head. The film will also apparently tease a romance between Happy Hogan and Aunt May, which is shown in a scene at the start of the trailer.
Obviously this is a lot to take in, and its hard to tell if Mysterio is actually an ally or if he will eventually be revealed to be the movie's villain. Its possible they could even have him as a hero in this movie and be saving his turn to evil for a future sequel. Not much is known about these "Elementals" but they are apparently creatures based of water, earth, and fire. The water based character could end up being a variation of Hydro-Man, or just an entirely new made up character. Fans at the event also made it clear that both the actors and the trailer itself do not mention the events of Endgame or Infinity War to avoid spoilers, so its unknown whats the status of Tony Stark at this point, or when the movie even takes place.
So what do you think of the trailer description? Are you okay with the idea of Mysterio being a hero rather than a villain? Let us know below!
