Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer was the best if we compare it to the other trailers of the upcoming films. For a trailer that didn’t reveal anything related to Avengers: Endgame, the Spider-Man: Far From Home sure had us asking plenty of questions. The big question that this trailer asks is where are the other Avengers? Then as the trailer moves along, we have the questions of Tony Stark’s survival, the Avengers Tower, and the timeline of the film.
For now, let’s talk about the buyer of the Avengers tower. We know that Tony Stark sold the tower to a mysterious buyer which is obviously not going to be called Mysterio, ‘cause that name has been taken. People have been wondering about this ever since we got to see Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Then with the release of this new Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, we get to see that the ex-Avengers tower in undergoing remodeling from top to bottom, and this has people talking about it constantly.
Here are some fan reactions to what we saw of the Avengers tower in the trailer:

So, majority of people out there think that this mystery buyer has to be among the lines of the Fantastic Four our Norman Osborn. Most people out there believe that this is, in fact, going to be the Baxter building, but people have also been asking whether this is Oscorp. A part of me also wants this to be the Baxter building because that would lead us to the eventual entry of the Fantastic Four in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The reason why I want this is because Oscorp has played a huge role in Spider-Man’s storyline in the 5 films we saw before Spidey came home. So including them would be kind of repetitive and what Marvel has done with Spidey is make him totally unique and follow some new storylines instead of the same old.
But Disney hasn’t completed the deal with Fox yet, and even though it will come to a probable conclusion by March, Marvel and Sony just could not have planned ahead of it back in 2016, as that is when the Spider-Man storyline began to formulate.
The way we see it, there could be two possibilities. Marvel could have either planned that they would leave the mystery buyer’s storyline open for the future to decide, and they could just make this the Baxter Building in post-production if the Disney Fox deal gets completed by March. But, doing this would be a great gamble, so it has to be the second option that this is, in fact, going to be Oscorp.
Since the purchase of the Avengers tower happened specifically in a Spider-Man movie, it has to be totally related to Spider-Man. Sure Marvel does like to introduce other characters in their films, and there is an agreement between Sony and Marvel that two MCU characters have to show up in a Spider-Man solo film no matter what, people could think that this is the Baxter building.
But if you think about the storyline that Marvel is building for Spidey. There is someone out there who is pulling all the strings. We saw the Vulture unite with Scorpion in the mid-credits scene, and someone asked Mac Gargan to recruit Adrian Toomes. So, that someone has to be a big figure who will probably be revealed in Spider-Man: Far From Home in order to set up the third film in the Homecoming series.
It has to be Norman Osborn. He is the one who has bought the Avengers tower, and he will be uniting the sinister 6 against Parker. Now, these villains will obviously include Vulture, Scorpion, Mysterio and the Green Goblin. That leaves space for two, and those could be Prowler (Donald Glover’s Aaron Davis) and probably a new name villain like Kraven or Chameleon.
