The Spider-Man: Far From Home LEGO tie-ins may have just confirmed a long-running fan theory regarding the identities of several secret villains in the upcoming MCU Film.
The LEGO sets in question are titled "Molten Man Battle" and "Hydro-Man Attack," confirming the two characters that appeared in the film's trailer are, in fact, the Elementals. It is unknown if these characters will be referred to by these names in the film, though -- or even if these villains are real. After all, with the Master of Illusions Mysterio present, it's always possible these villains can be illusions.
Previously, fans had speculated -- without any official confirmation -- that the Elementals might possibly be iconic members of Spider-Man's rogues gallery. Specifically, many thought the trailer showed off Sandman, Hydro-Man and Molten Man. However, the new LEGO sets are our first evidence that at least two of those three theories seem to pan out.
It's also important to note that LEGO sets are in no way a perfect representation of what occurs in a film. Several early LEGO sets have seemingly "spoiled" plot points for then-upcoming movies, only to be proven inaccurate, such as when an Avengers: Age of Ultron LEGO set revealed the "Hulkbuster Rescue Mission," which involved Hulkbuster and the Hulk, as well as Scarlet Witch and Ultron, neither of whom took direct part in that sequence.
Regardless, this is a possible indication that fans have correctly figured out the identities of two of the three Elementals. Now, all that remains is the identity of that sandy-looking fellow.
Opening July 5, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal.
