In "Spider-Man: Far From Home", Peter Parker slips into a new black outfit as "Night Monkey". The trailer for the home cinema release of the adventure gives the impression that there is even a separate film. A reaction to fan requests?
Attention, Spoiler to "Spider-Man: Far From Home"!
Peter Parker (Tom Holland) aka Spider-Man goes on a class trip through Europe in "Spider-Man: Far From Home" with buddy Ned (Jacob Batalon) and Swarm MJ (Zendaya). What sounds like fun soon turns out to be a superhero job when huge monsters attack the cities of Venice and Prague. Peter has to act. But to keep his identity from the class secret, he leaves his Spider-Man costume in a suitcase, puts on a black outfit and plunges into battle. Ned misses the name unknown to date "Night Monkey" - finished is one of the shortest origin stories of superhero history.
For the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of "Spider-Man: Far From Home," Sony has used Spidey's fallback alias for a marketing gag: A new trailer does not promote "Spider-Man" itself, but one " Night Monkey "movie. It does not really exist, but looks like the announcement of a new superhero movie series with the cut scenes from "Spider-Man: Far From Home". Even a new slogan has been devised for the dark monkey: "When the night breaks, rises a new hero. The night belongs ... to the monkey! "
SPIDER-MAN AS NIGHT MONKEY IN MCU?
A great idea that has been jokingly circulated by fans before: After recently Sony and Disney did not agree on a deal and Spider-Man flew out of the MCU, some suggested that Disney / Marvel could use Spider- In the future, you simply have to integrate it as a Night Monkey into your cinema universe and then you would not have to fear a legal dispute from Sony.
Maybe you can understand Sony's pseudo-trailer to "Spider-Man: Far From Home" as a slightly sardonic answer to these not very serious proposals - according to the motto: Spidey belongs to us, no matter what he calls himself. Whatever side of the night monkey belongs, we hope to see Night Monkey bonus material on the forthcoming DVD / Blu-ray from "Spider-Man: Far From Home".
"Spider-Man: Far From Home" will be released on November 1, 2019, as Video-On-Demand and on November 14, 2019, like DVD and Blu-ray.
