(Trailer at the bottom but you’ve probably already seen it.) Mysterio played by Jake Gyllenhaal looks spectacular. His costume and action sequence is dramatic and showy. Some have suggested that the Sinister Six could be in this movie but based on the credited actor’s list that is highly unlikely. There would have to be too many big name people added to the list.
Someone call Scooby Doo because the real mystery is in what’s NOT being said. There are currently two actors who haven’t been credited with a role yet, Remy Hii and J.B. Smoove.
Remy Hii who starred in Crazy, Rich Asian has an undisclosed role as of now. So who is Remy Hii playing? The speculation is wide-ranging from a hero, Shang-Chi to villain, Hydro-Man. Either option seems to be
J. B. Smoove
J.B. Smoove appeared as a driving instructor with Peter Parker in an Audi commercial but for Spiderman Far from Home, his role isn’t disclosed. Online speculation is guessing that Smoove could play J. Jonah Jameson or Robbie Robertson, both from the Daily Bugle. Smoove does have the personality and the attitude to pull off either role. The issue with these options is that the Bugle is in New York and the majority of this film seems to be in London, thus the “Far from Home” title. Why would Marvel hide the fact that he is playing an editor at the Bugle? It seems more probable that they would keep his role secret if he were a villain of some sort. Which one is the question? Hydro? Molten Man?
Another big thing sweeping the internet are the easter eggs in this new trailer
At the 1:49 mark, there is a half a second shot of what looks like Molten Man then at 1:52 an Audi appears with a weird plate number, 2865 SEP. Molten Man’s 1st Appearance is in Amazing Spider-man #28 from September 1965. Boom!
