The new Spider-Man film is set in Europe and people are convinced it's about Brexit

Yesterday, two very big and important things happened. The poster for Spider-Man: Far From Home was released and the first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home was also released.

Oh, and there was a crucial vote in the House of Commons which could alter the history of Britain forever, or something like that...

Given the collective misery that Brexit seems to be causing just about everyone, is it possible that Marvel released this trailer in an attempt to restore a little bit of joy and hope to our lives?

It certainly doesn't seem like a coincidence but, upon viewing the trailer, there was potentially a stronger message being put out there by the big wigs in Hollywood.

In the new film, Spider-Man ( who has seemingly come back from the dead? ) travels to Europe with his friends (and Nick Fury??? ) where he ends up fighting Jake Gyllenhaal's 'Mysterio'.

Hmmm... Marvel releasing a trailer predominantly set in Europe on the same day the British MPs voted whether to go through with Brexit or not? Doesn't seem coincidental at all.

While most of the initial reactions to the trailer were that of shock, awe and excitement, once people began to think, it was obvious that this film is going to be about Brexit, right?

We mean, just look at this scene from the trailer where Tower Bridge is on fire. Definitely signs of a no-deal Brexit.

Fans are hoping that the web-slinger can save us from Brexit.

It's perfectly possible that this film is set after Brexit but that the producers haven't decided whether Brexit has happened or not.

This wouldn't be the first time that Marvel has dipped their toes into the Brexit debate but we will have to wait and see if it plays any part in Far From Home which isn't released until July.
