Spider-Man: Far From Home Actor Teases Comic-Con Surprise


As they do every few years, Marvel Studios has decided to sit this year’s San Diego Comic-Con out, meaning we won’t get any major announcements about their upcoming slate of movies such as Avengers 4 and Captain Marvel. Or will we?

One MCU star has teased that we might be about to receive a surprise announcement to do with the upcoming sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home. Said star is Michael Mando, who made his Marvel debut in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, in which he played Mac Gargan, a crook who worked with Adrian Toomes AKA The Vulture. As he’s most commonly known as supervillain the Scorpion in the comics, fans suspect he’ll appear again in the follow-up. And while that hasn’t been confirmed just yet, Mando seems to be hinting that the announcement could be made at SDCC.

The actor shared a clip from the post-credits scene of Homecoming on his Instagram account, in which Gargan swears revenge on Spidey, alongside an intriguing caption that read, “Gee, I sure hope Spiderman will show up,” followed by the #SDCC2018 and #COMICCON hashtags. It doesn’t take someone of Peter Parker’s sharp brains to work out that he’s teasing some sort of surprise Spider-Man reveal at the event.

Though Marvel’s not holding a panel this year, Sony is and, thanks to the unique shared relationship the two studios have over the Spidey franchise, it’s possible that this panel could unveil some news about Spider-Man: Far From Home, perhaps confirming that Scorpion will feature in the sequel. Which would mean Peter Parker will definitely have his work cut out in the film, as he’s already got Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio and Michael Keaton’s Vulture to contend with.

Still, it’s best not to get too carried away just yet, as we could be barking up the wrong tree here. That being said, Spidey fans might want to keep their noses close to the ground just in case.
