It’s no secret that Marvel alters its trailers to preserve surprises. At times, this includes inserting fake shots in the trailer that will be dramatically different once the movies come out (we’ve seen it happen in Infinity War) as well. It seems Marvel has employed the same trick in the most recent Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer and a fan just proved that this is indeed the case.
A YouTube channel by the name Dimmy B Goode Productions posted a video in which two shots of Doctor Strange talking are compared. One of these is from the train fight between Strange and Parker and the other one is when Strange utters the “I can’t stop them” line from the trailer’s climactic shot. When lined up side-by-side, both shots are simply flipped versions of each other. It seems Strange was acting in front of a green screen and the exact same shot has been reused in both backgrounds.
It’s hard to dismiss this revelation of a fake shot as fake itself given that it lines up so well. The shots are a perfect match and once flipped horizontally, they align and fit like a glove. This should be enough proof and evidence that Marvel has indeed altered shots in the trailer. This was one of the “easier” catches; imagine the real hard-to-catch stuff that has been altered, such as the presence of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in the trailer’s money shots.
What do you think? Does the video convince you that Marvel is lying? Sound off in the comments below.
