The fans will see Hydro-Man and Molten Man, villains of Spider-Man, with some changes in their MCU debut in Spider-Man: Far From Home. We also saw an Elemental in the trailer that seems to be made of sand, and although we have not seen any merchandise to detail it in depth, it has some resemblance to the Sandman of the comics. Far From Home’s executive producer, Eric Carroll, was not ready to reveal the identity of the Elemental, but revealed that there is an Elemental still unknown (through ComicBookMovie).
“We dig and we find several characters,” Carroll told Total Film magazine. “I’m not going to say exactly what they are, because we want to leave some points in the air so that fans can connect them.”
It remains to see who is that Elemental, and while we assume that it is Sandman who appears in the trailer, Spider-Man: Far From Home it could always be someone like Quicksand if they wanted to leave Sandman for another movie. Maybe we will see a combination of characters to perform the Elementals.
As to why the villains changed their appearance, Carroll responded as follows.
“The real internal joke is that they are based on level B Spider-Man villains,” Carroll said. “Actually, there’s a villain in the comics called Hydro-Man, who’s a guy made of water but who wears a T-shirt and has a weird haircut …” Carroll said they wanted to make them “a little scary and threatening … It’ll be fun see Hydro-Man on the big screen in a way that we think is great. ”
Another character with whom they could carry out the Elemental take is Electro, but that is a great villain of Spider-Man, and the fans might feel a bit disappointed if a great villain like that is relegated to be a faceless Elemental.
