New Spiderman Movie Makes Hyundai Ioniq 5 A Hollywood Star

Movies & TV / Comments

Check out this new short film starring the cool new EV.

No Marvel movie would be complete without superheroes, one-liners, and automotive product placement. Marvel movies are incredibly popular, allowing automakers to advertise new models to millions of potential car buyers. As a result, we've seen some great cars in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), from Tony Stark's Audi R8 in Iron Man to the Lexus LC 500 in Black Panther.

While Audi used to be associated with Marvel films like Iron Man, this year's crop of Marvel movies has primarily featured product placement for BMWs. A BMW X3 starred in Black Widow's action-packed car chase and a BMW i8 appeared in Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings. Now, Hyundai is teaming up with Marvel to help promote Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Hyundai has announced that Jon Watts, the director of Spider-Man: No Way Home and all other Spider-Man movies in the MCU, has directed an exclusive short film titled Spider-Man: Only Way Home. Details are scarce, but the short accompanying teaser trailer shows Spider-Man walking alone on a desolate road. A Hyundai Ioniq 5 then approaches in the distance to give him a ride before the teaser abruptly ends.

The full video will be released on November 22 before Spider-Man: No Way Home swings into movie theaters on December 17. Presumably, it will be an elaborate advertisement for the Hyundai Ioniq 5 showing off the EV's performance, range, and semi-autonomous driving technology, with a few easter eggs for Spider-Man fans to enjoy. Who knows, maybe Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will appear from the multiverse in the short film after being absent in the main trailer.

With the announcement of the short film, we won't be surprised if the Ioniq 5 appears in Spider-Man: No Way Home. If it does, it will probably be a small cameo appearance like the Hyundai Sonata in Spider-Man: Far From Home since the trailers haven't shown any car action.

Before Hyundai started appearing in Spider-Man movies, the Veloster made a memorable appearance in Ant-Man and the Wasp, where it shrunk down during a chase scene in San Francisco. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Loki, and WandaVision are also appearing in a new advertising campaign for the 2022 Hyundai Tucson.
