MAIN SPOILERS ahead of Spider-Man: away from home.
Spider-Man: away from home He added Quentin Beck, from Jake Gyllenhaal, to the story of Peter Parker a little earlier than many followers, or even Peter, realized. It was all part of Beck's master plan to spy on Peter and put together his big scam.
Two days ago, Jake Gyllenhaal shared a trail on this front. He shook a Hawaiian shirt on Instagram, mocking his "favorite look" of Spider-Man: away from home. He also suggested that fans look more closely at his character, mocking #wheresbeck:
Around the same time, fan @UptoTASK put the pieces together to Spider-Man: away from home fans, using screenshots of the film to show that Quentin Beck was right behind Peter (Tom Holland) in Venice while the high school student was preparing to buy his Black Dahlia murder necklace for MJ (Zendaya).
Many fans were surprised by the revelation that Quentin Beck / Mysterio appeared in his little Easter egg in Venice, before fighting against the Water Elemental (fake), officially introducing himself to Peter Parker and obtaining those E.D.I.T.H. lenses. Some fans said they already noticed that in the movie. I wish I had those eagle eyes. Others needed help to understand it completely before catching up:
That explanation won a answer of "OHHHHHHH SHIT".
Other fans pointed to an early appearance of Guterman, another former Stark Industries employee who joined Mysterio's team for the big scam job:
I missed most of the Easter eggs, which is not a surprise, since I tend to capture these things only when the movies are in digital format, on disk, on Netflix, on HBO, or whatever. On that note, how in the world are everyone getting these screenshots? Are you filming the movie in the theater?
The official Spider-Man: away from home The account asked a different user that same question after she shared some photos of the film:
Although I'm glad to see the images now. It helps me to appreciate the film and, honestly, it makes me more game to see it for the second time in the theater.
Spider-Man: away from home It's only in his second weekend in theaters. Easily beat the box office on weekends. Next weekend will belong to The Lion KingHowever, this was the last time that Peter Parker was on the throne … unless THAT many fans return to the theater to try to catch all the Easter eggs before the digital release.
