At Comic Con in Brazil, Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Jacob Batalon discussed the plot to Spider-Man: Far From Home. It essentially went like this:
Nick Fury recruits Spider-Man to join S.H.I.E.L.D. and team up with Mysterio. Together, they travel the globe and stop elemental powered bad guys.
If years ago you’d have told me that was the plot to the next Spider-Man movie, I’d have said you’re crazy. That’s so out of left field! Or is it? Because when you really think about it, that was more or less the exact plot of the 2007 videogame Spider-Man: Friend or Foe.
Nick Fury recruits Spider-Man to join S.H.I.E.L.D. and team up with classic villians. Together, they travel the globe and stop Symbiote powered bad guys, being controlled by Mysterio.
Marvel and Sony have literally made a big budget blockbuster with the same premise as an old PS2 game! That’s not a bad thing, it’s actually quite fun and amusing! We need shakeups in comic book films these days, otherwise things get too predictable. Pleasant surprises that put characters in positions we would never expect, for instance, Vulture being Liz Allen's father.
I cannot wait to see how this turns out. It's sure to be a blast. Check out the fun video below, the first episode in a new Face Front series, Marvel Corner!
