Additionally, that crooked stage magician Donny Blaze has fans praying that Johnny Blaze’s Ghost Rider is coming, too.

It turns out that Disney tried to fix a widely mocked bit of VFX for the streaming release, only to make it arguably even worse.

While we can all agree that it was a mercy killing for Marvel Studios to put that universe out to pasture, it’s a shame we never got see Hamm as Nathaniel Essex. The good news is that the Mad Men icon is not ruling out the opportunity to play him in the MCU. “I[t] would be a fun person to play, that’s for sure,” he told ComicBookMovie. “I look good in purple, I’ll put it that way.”

On the whole, Marvel Studios is pretty strong as knowing what to show and what to hold back in the marketing for its movies, but sometimes it definitely reveals more than we wanted to know. Fans have been recalling the times when an MCU trailer blew them away with a major bombshell…then left them feeling deflated that they were robbed of seeing that moment in its proper context. Examples folks mentioned include Professor X being in Doctor Strange 2, Daredevil in She-Hulk, and, of course, Spider-Man’s big entrance in Captain America: Civil War.
