RW537 - MCU Rewatch - Spider-Man Far From Home


In this episode of The Marvel Cinematic Universe Rewatch, Cory and Eoghan take that tricky European holiday as they discuss Spider-Man Far From Home.


Our Favourite Trivia:

Spider-Man: Far From Home takes place in the year 2024, eight months after Avengers: Endgame (2019).

This isn't the first time Jake Gyllenhaal has been associated with a Spider-Man film. Originally he was going to replace Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 (2004) after Maguire was injured during the filming of Seabiscuit (2003), but luckily, his injuries healed up and he was able to return to the set.

Matt Smith, Andrew Scott and Colin Farrell were considered for the role of Mysterio.

This is Samuel L. Jackson's third consecutive MCU appearance as Nick Fury, following Captain Marvel (2019) and Avengers: Endgame (2019). This is also the first time an MCU character has appeared in three films in one year.

Mysterio's illusion sequence contains 150 VFX shots, and was based on the dream films A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) and Paprika (2006), the surreal animated feature Duck Amuck (1953) and the "Pink Elephants" hallucination from Dumbo (1941).

Although they are not specifically named, the four Elementals correspond to four Spider-Man villains: the wind elemental is called Cyclone, the water elemental resembles Hydro-Man, the lava elemental is similar to the villain Molten Man, and the earth elemental is similar to the Sandman. In this film, they are known as Hellfire (made of fire), Hydron (made of water), Magnum (made of earth) and Zephyr (made of wind).

Peter says that MJ's favorite flower is a black dahlia "because of the murder." He's referring to one of Los Angeles' most famous unsolved crimes from 1947, the murder of Elizabeth Short.

What's Up Next?

Knives Out is officially a franchise! Up next we're rewatching Glass Onion.

Following that discussion, it's been 5 whole years but we're returning to our Broken Lizard buds and their new comedy, Quasi.

Then it's time for the next big rewatch, and we've been hanging out for this one. We hope you'll join us as we get into the Tom Hanks 80s Rewatch.
