After the release of the second Captain Marvel trailer and the first Avengers: Endgame teaser trailer, the official release of the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer is all that’s left to round up at least one official look at each of next year’s MCU movies. But while the other two trailers more or less dropped at their intended times, the trailer for Far From Home has only been shown at CCXP 2018 so far, with barely a bootleg or leaked copy in sight (some images might have gotten out though).
This begs the question of when exactly will Sony release the Far From Home trailer online, if at all? It’s rather strange for a company like Sony to be silent on the matter and even miss out on cross-promoting their biggest 2019 movie with what’s looking to be their biggest 2018 movie, Into The Spider-Verse. And that’s saying something when Venom c
Online scoopers are divided about the release. If MCU Cosmic is to be believed, the trailer has been submitted for rating and clocks in at around 2 and a half minutes. Daniel RPK from Twitter, who secured quite a reputation upon correctly predicting the Avengers: Endgame teaser release date is doubtful of the trailer landing online this week.
Trailer Track believes it would be unwise of Sony to let an opportunity like this slip by, with two of the month’s biggest releases lined up in Aquaman and Bumblebee. We concur.
So what’s my take? Honestly, if the trailer was indeed to be attached to screenings of Aquaman or Bumblebee, it should’ve either arrived online by now, or word about its arrival should’ve been strong. The fact that it’s mostly quiet around that front could suggest Sony wanting to delay the online launch of the trailer for a while, letting all the hype around Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Avengers: Endgame s
That leaves us with two timelines as to when the trailer could drop. The first is before the upcoming release of Sony & Columbia Pictures’ Holmes & Watson. The studios have two other releases later in January as well but those do not look like the kind of movies Sony would want to rush to attach a Spider-Man trailer to. This one on the other hand arrives in Christmas, which would kind of be the perfect way to cap out the year by staying in conversation.
The next bet, should Sony skip this year entirely, is for the trailer to arrive sometime next year. While January is also a possibility, February would look a lot more plausible, seeing as Sony could schedule a Superbowl spot for Far From Home before debuting the trailer online, which could go on and attach itself to the prints of Captain Marvel. It would also go in well with the guidelines imposed by the National Association of Theater Owners, restricting a theatrical showing of a trailer to not more than four months before the movie’s release, which is the gap between Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home.
The longer we wait and ponder, the more it seems like we won’t get a Far From Home t
