John Campea is a journalist with Forbes and has been following the Spider-Man: Far From Home filming extensively. He not only spoiled the film’s ending, but also revealed what spoilers we may see in Avengers 4 now that he revealed how it would end.
John Campea (probably) spoils Spider-Man: No Way Home. The movie is scheduled to be released on July 7th, 2019.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is (likely) spoiled by John Campea.
Thanks to John Campea, some Spider-Man: No Way Home kittens have escaped the bag. On his Twitter account yesterday, the former Collider presenter shared a series of images from the next Marvel film, and they expose some major details that I’m sure most people didn’t want to know. Campea promptly removed them, but the harm had already been done, and they’re now being circulated all over the internet. If you managed to escape seeing them, you’re a fortunate duck, as the Tick would say, and I admire you. If you’re interested in seeing them, here’s a tweet from Spider-Man NWH Updates and Leaks:

Before I continue, did you notice how simple it was? I shared the photographs after putting up a spoiler notice and leaving enough room. That’s all it takes, and I’m sick of these conceited entertainment writers who refuse to even try to conceal spoilers and insist that you don’t mind if the tale is spoiled for you. Now, John Campea isn’t technically part of this organization; he claims he first mistook the photographs for fakes and swiftly removed them after receiving confirmation that they were almost probably genuine. In the video below (the Spidey conversation is from 29:40 to 49:40), he explains what happened:
I’m not familiar with John Campea, and I don’t watch his videos (not after seeing him and the other Collider guys “review” Rogue One; in fact, if you want a good chuckle, watch this and then this), so take my thoughts on this with a grain of salt. I believe this was a mistake, especially since he pulled them down so fast after learning that they were most likely genuine, according to his story. However, there are a couple parts of this that make me question if the third “conspiracy idea” he mentions is correct (the first two are stupid and obviously not true). To begin with, he claims to have a few of photographs that are much more spoilers than the ones he published; if this is true, and he believes they are all phony, why did he just disclose the ones he did? Why would you hold back the largest ones if you’re distributing what you assume are fraudulent photos for a joke (on which you placed your watermark while acknowledging you didn’t produce them, which seems incredibly unethical)? Second, Sony seemed unconcerned about all of this; it’s possible that they recognize the error and don’t want to embarrass Campea too much, but I’d think they’d be a bit more enraged with him than he depicts in the video, even if it’s not entirely his fault. He might also be making apologies by wearing a Far From Home sweatshirt in a video he swears isn’t about Spider-Man, which is acceptable. And with his “silly old me” approach, he’s sort of downplaying his standing; whatever your feelings about him, John Campea isn’t exactly a lightweight in the world of online cinema journalism. So, I believe he’s speaking the truth for the most part, but there are a few things I’m not sure about.
Let’s speak about the photographs now that they’re out there and we can’t unsee them. I suppose everyone expected Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield to appear in No Way Home, so although it would have been wonderful to be surprised, knowing it will (most likely) happen isn’t that bad. I’m not a fan of it, just as I’m not a fan of Tom Holland’s Peter Parker encountering all of the legendary Spider-Man villains from prior seasons before meeting his own versions of them, but it is what it is. For better or worse, we now have the multiverse in the MCU; thus far, it’s all been for the worst.
On the other side, Matt Murdock irritates me. I like Daredevil and Charlie Cox’s portrayal of the character; seeing him – or any of the Netflix characters other than Iron Fist – appear in the movie is a fantasy I assumed would stay such. In fact, they fit in better than any of the other legion of appearances since those programs incorporated themselves into the MCU better than almost anything else outside of the movies, and even some of them. (No Captain Marvel-style retcons were required to explain Matt Murdock.) But now that the surprise of his coming has been spoiled, we’ll simply have to wait for it, knowing that the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen would ultimately assist Spidey in defeating his inter-dimensional opponents. I’m hoping this isn’t a one-off to please Daredevil fans, but rather an indication that we’re not done with Cox’s Daredevil.
