Three Easter Eggs in the SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Trailer Seem to Confirm Sandman, Molten Man, and Hydro-Man
There have been a lot of questions surrounding The Elementals in Spider-Man: Far From Home. It initially seems like the villains consist of Sandman, Molten Man, and Hydro-Man, but that has yet to be officially confirmed.
However, there are three well-placed Easter eggs in the trailer for the film that might be the confirmation that we need. These were pointed out to me by a friend of mine, and I figured I’d share them with you and see what you all think.
So, let’s jump right into it!
On the boat behind Ned, you’ll see “Asm 212” on the side of it. This could refer to the comic book The Amazing Spider-Man #212, which is the issue where Morris Bench, a.k.a. Hydro-Man, made his debut.
In this image featuring Nick Fury and Maria Hill facing off with one of the Elementals, the license plate on the car in front of them shows the numbers “463.” This could refer to The Amazing Spider-Man #4, which was published in 1963… “463.” This is the comic that introduced Sandman.
Finally, the license plate of the car in this image says, “2865 SEP.” This could be in reference to The Amazing Spider-Man #28, which was released in September 1965. This is the issue that introduced Mark Raxton, a.k.a. Molten Man.
I seriously doubt that this is a coincidence. After all, director Jon Watts did the same thing in Spider-Man: Homecoming. There were two license plates featured in the film that read “AMF-1562” and “SM2-0563”. The first one was in reference to 1962's Amazing Fantasy #15, which is where Spider-Man made his big debut. The second was in reference to The Amazing Spider-Man #2, which was released in May 1963. That was the debut of Vulture.
So, I’m going to go ahead and that this as confirmation that these Elementals are indeed Sandman, Molten Man, and Hydro-Man. But what do you think?
