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 Homewas 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.

Seems like the new Spider-Man trailer is leaning heavily on the brexit imagery, too... https://t.co/XPNn4ya6Co — Nick Stenning (@Nick Stenning)

brave of the MCU to tackle hard hitting modern issues like Brexit in their new Spider-Man film — Traincat (@Traincat)
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.
