"In-between setting up the next episode of MCU, hop aboard the kind of teen euro road trip sex romp not seen since EuroTrip, Road Trip, or Sex Drive!" ~ Honest Trailers - Spider-Man: Far From Home
From the studios who act like divorced parents arguing over where their kid spends Christmas [shows news articles about the Sony/Disney split cutting Spider-Man out of the MCU], comes an MCU catch-up movie that's all about the Tony Stark-shaped hole in the universe. Uhh...are we sure Disney even wants to make a Spider-Man movie?
Happy: "You're not Iron Man. You're never gonna be Iron Man."
Spider-Man: Far From Home
Marvel fans everywhere, prepare to get a feature-length dopamine rush of that sweet sweet intro franchise consistency. Featuring tons of Iron Man, loads of Endgame [”The Blip”], juicy kernels of Phase 4, and... hmm. I feel like I‘m forgetting something. Oh, yeah. Spider-Man goes on vacation! [shows Peter get through luggage security] (yawn) Concept seems a little Disney+ to me. Um, wake me up when he gets to space Wakanda [Kree spaceship].
In-between setting up the next episode of MCU, hop aboard the kind of teen euro road trip sex romp not seen since EuroTrip, Road Trip, or Sex Drive. Where he’ll be joined by his very own Stifler, two teachers plucked from a 90’s sitcom, and Mary Jane [Michelle Jones]. The YA reboot of Debbie Downer [shows MJ saying things to make her sound like a bummer, followed by a “Wa wa waaaaa” sound effect]. Eh, she seems nice. I just hope she doesn’t end up like his other girlfriends. [shows Peter have a divorce with Mary Jane, get rejected by Liz Allen, and let Gwen Stacy die. Followed by a “Wa wa waaaaa” sound effect]
Watch as Spider-Man gain a powerful new ally from the multiverse, known as Mysterio. Mysterio?! Motherf- you think we don’t know the guy in The Sinister Six is gonna be the villain? Like, their gonna spend the whole movie fighting a wave [Hydro-Man]. (groans) Jake Gyllenhaal shines as a fishbowl with haunted house powers. Who’s out for revenge on Tony Stark. Ya know, the “already dead” guy. Because, even in death, Iron Man is the only force powerful enough to motivate an MCU bad guy. Dude’s company was like an Arc Reactor for haters.
Mysterio: “Our former boss, Tony Stark.” [crowd boos]
Just get a job at Hammer Industries, you dorks! [shows Justin Hammer dance walking in Iron Man 2]
Thrill as Mysterio plays on Spider-Man’s only weakness. Getting hit in the face with a train [the exact thing happens to him]. (laugh) Just kidding! He’s fine. Don’t be ridiculous. No, he’ll strike at the one thing Peter lacks most of all. An adult male who isn’t perving out on his aunt. [shows people perving out on Aunt May, both this movie and Homecoming] Watch Mysterio plan his trust to steal EDITH a global drone assassination program that Tony left to a teenager. Which, fine. That’s kinda his thing [shows KAREN from Homecoming activating “Instant Kill” mode], but this murder machine is hidden inside a pair of sunglasses? THAT’S THE WORLD’S MOST COMMONLY LOST ITEM! He might as well give him a pen full of ebola! [Mysterio ask Peter if an item was on the floor]
So get ready for the third Spider-Man 2, which perfectly sets up a second Spider-Man 3, that audiences won’t see until Feige‘s schedule clears up in 2024. But no whining. Because if the rights stay with Sony, you get a Spider-Man movie every year. Plus one with Venom, one with Jared Leto’s Morbius, Madame Web,
Spider-Man: ”What the f–“
Yeah, it’s probably better this way.

The Boy Who Was Friends With Iron Man

Your son almost died like twice, you monster!

Reception EditHonest Trailers - Spider-Man: Far From Home has a 96.3% approval rating from YouTube viewers. In his review of the Honest Trailer, Tom from TVOvermind wrote "Honest Trailers is great since it tends to ask the questions that people do tend to ask but in a way that makes it a lot of fun to laugh and even roar hilariously about since it makes so much sense when you hear it from someone else." Trey Griffeth of Heroic Hollywood said the Honest Trailer "is about what you expect from the series. It contains plenty of jokes that by now everyone is familiar with."
In her review of the video, Marni Dixit of GOAT wrote that the Honest Trailer gives the film some "deserved hits, especially for trying to trick us into thinking Mysterio was a good guy." Michael Kennedy of Screen Rant made similar remarks, writing "While Far From Home is by no means raked over the coals in its Honest Trailer, nor should it be, the Spidey sequel does take some deserved knocks, especially for its central twist revolving around the villain Mysterio, a plot turn so obvious it's a wonder Marvel even bothered trying to conceal it."
In a more mixed take on the Honest Trailer, Rachel Leishman of The Mary Sue wrote "this Honest Trailer does do a good job of pointing out the absurdity of Tony Stark giving a multi-million dollar AI system to a teenager but also keep your MJ shade to yourself, she’s exceptional." Leishman wrote "one thing that really bothers me about the Honest Trailer is its treatment of MJ. Zendaya brings to life a very modern interpretation of the character and shows her in a light that many relate to. ... The trailer calls her the “Debbie Downer” of the series and honestly? Screw that." In contrast, Charles Barfield of The Playlist wrote "you know what is ripe for poking fun at? MJ’s new role as the Debby Downer of the MCU."
