I read somewhere that they ended up destroying 7 or 8 of those Death Stars during filming. That's a lot of cash at $500 each!

Product placement. They were probably free. However, I would have loved being on the team that built them.

The production budget of SM:H was $175 million.  They blew up cars and ****.  $3500 in LEGO Death Stars is a rounding error on a project like this.   ;)

Legos are like matter - they can never be destroyed, just separated into smaller bits.  I'm more surprised that they had to build 8 of those suckers, as they take forever.   The instructions for the set are spiral bound.

Looks good.  I think this will follow a similar plot to the original Incredibles film.  Mysterio creates these menaces/disasters s he can save the day and become a famous hero.

I'm thinking this probably takes place before the events of Infinity War.

Sony's president said a while back that this film picks up right where A:EG ends.

Thanks for posting the trailer!  Looks great. 

Spidey's return really shouldn't be a shock to anyone.  Both he and the Guardians had planned sequels when Infinity War hit, so you knew these characters would be back.

Really, really looking forward to this. Mysterio is one of my favorite Spidey villains, and it is really cool to see they are sticking pretty closely to his classic look here. I'm pretty sure Kevin Fiege himself has officially confirmed that this is after Avengers: Endgame, which I guess is a spoiler but shouldn't be surprising to anyone. I'm going to go out on a limb and say Black Panther will have more movies as well.

Went to Spider-Man: Far From Home today, and absolutely loved it. I'll admit, I'm an easy mark for a Spidey movie, but this may be one of my all time favorite movies, particularly superhero movies. Very comic booky in places, which I loved, and just a fun ride. I won't go into spoilers here, but obviously stay through the credits. Definitely some surprises there.

Caught Far From Home today and loved it.  I still have problems with Zendaya's MJ, but I've always been partial to the MJ from the comics...she's sucha complex character.

Definitely need to stay through the credits for the last stinger!

Saw FFH this past weekend. Fun little movie, didn't fall in love with it, probably ranking it somewhere in the mid-tier of the MCU. I do love this version of Peter and I'll be sad when Sony gets the rights back and scraps this version to do their overcomplicated Sinister Six garbage.

And yes, stay for at least the mid-credits scene! I was not expecting that!

Sony would be stupid to take Spider-Man out of the MCU.

Venom was not a good movie and the sequel is going to bomb.  Into the Spider-verse was good, but the pedestal some people are putting it on is a bit too high.

Yes, Sony would be stupid to take Spider-Man out of the MCU and that's why they're not going to do it.

All of the talk this week about what can happen with the sharing arrangement, blah blah blah. At the end of the day, Spider-Man: Far From Home is approaching $850M worldwide and internationally, without taking into account inflation, it's the highest grossing Spider-man movie to date.

Sony knows that the reason it's doing this well is because it's connected to the MCU. People are coming to the theater to see it to see how it connects and continues to the MCU story.

Personally, I think Venom did well because people were hoping for a Deadpool-like take on the Venom character (which they only sorta got) and they thought it was tied to the MCU (and may have been surprised to learn it wasn't). I think Matt is right, there will be a lot of folks who basically stay away from the sequel to Venom because they will know that Spider-man won't be in it and it's not tied to the MCU narrative.

Quite frankly, the team at Sony should be going to Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige and saying that they want to put up the $$$ to have at least one movie a year, hand over creative control and let Marvel Studios go wild. There is still a way, before any other Venom-verse (or Sony-verse or whatever they're calling it) movies come out that they can "fix" things. You could always just say that the events of Venom took place mid-way through the blip, people in San Francisco were trying to move on and Carlton Drake, an Elon Musk-like billionaire was running his own space exploration program out of the Life Foundation. He didn't come up on the Avengers radar and Tony Stark who would normally snoop around in the business of other tech geniuses was busy on his farm with Pepper and Morgan.

I think most fans would welcome this, it would strengthen the franchises on both sides because it would allow Marvel Studios/Feige to FREELY incorporate Spidey villains into the MCU.

Far From Home was enjoyable, but MJ's schtick gets old and I'm getting old. I don't care much for teenage bull**** awkwardness. And almost every significant character in the movie is comical, more so than Homecoming. I suppose that's better than the over-serious Garfield era Spider-Man movies. (Never having seen all of ASM2).

The tie-ins to MCU are the best thing current Spider-Man movies have going and I'm not even a MCU purist really.
