Review: (#1) Instead of a suitcase, it’s Spidey’s mask. It’s a clever conceit, though it’s uninteresting executed.

(#2) This wouldn’t be terribly interesting in English. It’s not terribly interesting now. (#3-#5) This series of location photos largely play into Spider-Man’s familiar presence, but don’t do much, except the last, which also exhibits his sense of humor.

(#6) A poorly crafted design that might tell the audience who’s in the film, but does nothing to make the design look intriguing. (#7) Almost the same as the prior while being suitably less interesting. (#8-#11) Four figures in different settings, none of whom seem particularly compelling. (#12) It’s the sixth design except with Tom Holland’s face covered up. Not an improvement. (#13) The selection of images stacked together work poorly together, making it all seem like a rather juvenile affair. (#14) This IMAX design has a lot of character even if it is poorly structured. (#15-#19) This quintet of Chinese art-inspired designs are mostly interesting, but entirely out of place. (#20) Taking out Nick Fury from design six, choosing masks to cover Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal, and ultimately coming together for an uninteresting design. (#21-#22) This pair of black-suite spider-man designs don’t tell us anything about the character or the film and thus, looking cool aside, they aren’t terribly effective.

Trailer Rating: C+ / B-

Review: (#1) A tepid trailer with light laughs and moderately perilous situations. Fans of the Disney version of Spider-Man will probably be excited, but after the proof of concept in Into the Spider-Verse, this trailer cannot help but feel disappointing.

(#2) With a warning that the trailer contains spoilers, it’s incredibly true that fact. Watching the trailer, setting up the next phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the trailer has a lot of exciting elements and some solid humor, but still feels like a carbon copy of all that we’ve seen before.

Oscar Prospects:

Anything’s possible with the Marvel universe, but this series hasn’t had much luck at the Oscars recently.
