Director Jon Watts was the man responsible for bringing Tom Holland's very first solo film into the MCU in the form of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Needless to say, it was a fantastic flick that has been adored by many; one which even included one of the best comic book villains in recent years thanks to Michael Keaton's Vulture.

The winning streak didn't stop there. Watts was rehired to the franchise and pulled off Spider-Man: Far From Home, taking the web-slinger out of his usual territory of NYC and overseas on a school trip. For a second time in a row, Watts had another winner on his hand, one which left Peter Parker in the worst spot he's ever been thanks to Mysterio revealing his secret identity.

Now, Watts returns with Spider-Man: No Way Home, a film that has been the talk of the internet for quite some time. All of the rumors of Spider-Man and multiverse villains will certainly start conversations. 

The highly anticipated trailer, which has now been officially released, was actually leaked early—by way of a recording of someone else's recording. This fun fact is the subject of a new satirical Instagram post by Spider-Man: No Way Home's director.



Jon Watts, the director of Spider-Man: No Way Home, has posted a hilarious trailer to Instagram mocking the recent leak of the now fully revealed trailer, with the caption "the way the director intended."

The video in its entirety can be seen below:

It's always fun when the creatives behind certain projects poke fun at things they're professionally involved with. There's the always famous example of Avengers: Age of Ultron, whose first trailer got leaked early, and the company took to social media saying " Dammint Hydra."

Even the official Twitter account for the film got in on the fun, posting a tweet saying "shout-out to the real ones who are watching the trailer for the first time right now."

With all of the excitement about the film and the way the leaks just piled on prior to the proper release of the trailer, it almost would have been more awkward if no one acknowledged it all. Jon Watt's Instagram post is certainly a great way to do it, and it's hard not to think about the fun they had cooking it up. 

With the trailer now out for Spider-Man: No Way Home, fans can now rest easy finally being able to see something from the film. While things may calm down momentarily, sooner or later, the fanbase will start back up again, demanding even more.
