Not everything needs to be a world ending villain, having them all do their own thing then team up when they need to is perfectly fine. Besides Thor nearly killed Thanos single handily, the next movie will be resetting the timeline more than it will be fighting Thanos in any capacity.last i heard it takes place like, the day after avengers. no one has given any information on how that's possible, obviously, but there's been a few official-ish places that have stated that.
i'm having sort of a hard time being excited for this as well. i don't have the characters or the world, but i think it's time to start making the MCU much more loosely connected. they should still be in the same universe, but it's hard to have some rando mob boss mean anything when the hero just beat Cosmic Entity the Destroyer last week.
I knew I recognized her from somewhere! The Nice Guys, and Our Final Hours were both pretty good. She seemed really fucking young in those though, man how time flies (says she is 18 on IMDB).
So two "spoilers" in the trailer.
This is often a much better way to handle a character than the blatant "he's evil!" approach. I have hated Jake Gyllenhall since Donnie Darko, but hopefully they do what you guys are suggesting with Mysterio, and despite my hate I know JG can pull it off. That's why Michael Rosenbaum's Lex Luthor in Smallville is one of my favorite villains of all time. Sure, they had him do stupid or "evil" shit occasionally, but by and large he was always trying to do the right thing, he was just cutting corners a true "hero" wouldn't have, or getting caught up in situations he shouldn't have, etc.honestly, that's my thought. i think it's so heavy handed that he's a bad guy in a reverse psychology kind of way. here's my theory, though maybe i'm just off my rocker. i think marvel is banking on people knowing who mysterio is, and those who don't will ask others who do. it's a wasted reveal. marvel has a tendency to show false information in their trailers so it's weird to show mysterio in this light when it's OBVIOUSLY misleading.
my thought is that mysterio isn't pretending, he actually does have powers and actually WANTS to be a hero
