Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Fans are convinced they’ve spotted a villain from one of Tom Holland’s Marvel Cinematic Universe movies in the latest trailer for the sequel.
On September 14th, PlayStation held a September edition of its State of Play presentation, and in it, we got updates on Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, Resident Evil 4 Remakeand of course, Insomniac’s upcoming Spider-Man sequel.
The main focus of the Spider-Man portion of the presentation was the introduction more of the game’s open world and show off some of the new superhero costumes and abilities. Among all the exciting new features revealed during the show, fans have also spotted what they believe is a recurring villain in the Spider-Man franchise.
On the Spider-Man subreddit, several fans have shared screenshots of a character, as well as the green diamond-shaped symbol that appears in the sky during the trailer, and they believe that this could be Mysterio – who was featured prominently in one of Tom Holland’s MCU movies, Spider-Man: Far From Home.
If you haven’t already guessed, fans are convinced that Mysterio is set to appear in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. “Can’t wait to see ol’ Bubble Boy again!” shared one Reddit user, along with screenshots of the character from the PS1-era Spider-Man game, as well as the PS2, PS3 and now PS5 version of the character.
Another fan shared a screenshot of a mysterious character that appeared in yesterday’s trailer. The person in the frame doesn’t exactly look like actor Jake Gyllenhaal, but he’s dressed in purple and standing in front of some sort of green, glowing tunnel – which sounds exactly like Mysterio’s kind.
“If it does show up, it will help confirm if the comics are legit,” said one Reddit user, “seeing as Peter and MJ go to see Quieten Beck in the speed comics and Peter doesn’t mention anything about him being the Mystery” .However, if we’ve learned anything from Spider-Man: Far From Home, it might be best for Miles and Peter to keep their distance from the theorized villain, just in case.
