Apparently, there have been the first screenings of Marvel’s upcoming blockbuster “Spider-Man: Far From Home” in recent days, and the information that has now leaked could spell big changes for the entire MCU.
– Article may contain spoilers for “Spider-Man: Far From Home” –
In this country it is usually only noticeable from a distance. But in Los Angeles, test screenings of upcoming movie attractions are fast becoming the talk of the town. When meeting local colleagues for dinner in Los Angeles, someone always knows someone who has just seen this or that blockbuster in a preview. That’s also one of the reasons why studios have more and more test screenings in other cities. But the performances of the new MCU blockbuster “Spider-Man: Far From Home” have apparently taken place again in Los Angeles. At least it took only a few hours to get Grace Randolph out Youtube channel Beyond the trailer tweeted the first potential mega spoiler:
When asked by a Twitter user where he would get this information from, Randolph replied that it was from a “the screening took place today“It would originate. So before we dive into the importance of the spoiler for the future of the MCU, of course. First of all, the question of credibility, in two places: Because while we can hardly imagine that Randolph completely sucked the story out of his hands, we unfortunately can’t exactly understand his anonymous source. So there is a chance someone told Randolph nonsense (although she probably wouldn’t have announced it so confidently to the world, but you never know).
New Tenant: Oscorp or the Fantastic Four?
So the signs that a screening for an upcoming blockbuster should be imminent, according to local colleagues, mounted in the days leading up to the spoiler in Los Angeles. Also, the spoiler itself is quite believable: That Oscorp should once again play an important role in the “Spider-Man” universe and therefore possibly also in the MCU has not only been repeatedly speculated, but is also absolutely obvious. How many “Spider-Man” movies do you want to make without Oscorp appearing at least marginally in them?
The gif in the tweet is therefore anything but random: It shows the old Avengers Tower, which Tony Stark cleared at the end of “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” It is logical that Oscorp moves in as a new tenant. With the prices, aside from Tony Stark, only a devilish megacorporation can afford it. It seems unlikely that the Fantastic Four will move in and turn the tower into their Baxter Building, as some fans have also speculated. After all, “Spider-Man: Far From Home” was already filmed prior to the final completion of Disney’s acquisition of Fox (and the creators therefore couldn’t count on being able to access the rights to “ The Fantastic Four”).
A villain for “Avengers 5”?
Oscorp certainly won’t be in the limelight in “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” Instead, there will likely be the first references interspersed to the group (like the move to Avengers Tower). But of course, it won’t stay that way in the long run. Instead, the rights-owning studio Sony will push for Norman Osborn, Harry Osborn, and thus also the original Green Goblin or Iron Patriot to come forward. The only question is: Will Oscorp only be integrated into the center of evil in Sony’s Spider-Man universe? Or possibly Norman Osborn & Co. will become the new central opponents in the next phase of the MCU, and thus the main adversaries of the Marvel superhero company in “Avengers 5”?
We won’t even get the answer to this question when “Spider-Man: Far From Home” hits German theaters on July 4th. and we can convince ourselves if Oscorp is being teased in the MCU adventure and to what extent.
“Avengers 5”: This is what the team of heroes should look like in the future!
