The MCU's version of the Daily Bugle has launched its own TikTok as marketing for December's release of Spider-Man: No Way Home continues to increase.
Going by the username @TheDailyBugleOfficial, the MCU outlet has launched its own TikTok account that fans can follow today for "breaking news on Spider-Man you can't get anywhere else."
While those of you hoping that J. Jonah Jameson and his team of reporters might have snapped up some pictures of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, that certainly doesn't seem to be the case so far. The Bugle's first post features intern Betty Brant announcing her new position at the newspaper while another includes J. Jonah Jameson calling out Spider-Man as the "spider-menace" we all know he is in true Simmons-style.
As per the fictional outlet's most recent upload, fans can now download their own Daily Bugle reporter pack to share their own "Spider-Man sightings, misguided opinions, vague rumours and craziest conspiracy theories," on the social media app. By downloading the pack, you'll be given access to your own TikTok Daily Bugle background, which you can use to join Brant in her promise to deliver fans the sort of "fair, balanced and hard-hitting news you've grown to expect from the Bugle."
Brant, who's played by actress Angourie Rice, has featured in both previous MCU Spider-Man films. While she spent the majority of Far From Home loved up with Peter Parker's best friend and "guy in the chair" Ned, the character is more commonly known in the films as a member of Midtown High's student journalist team. During Marvel's comic book series, a similar role is carried out by the character, who becomes known for her role at the Daily Bugle and relationship with Ned.
The Daily Bugle itself doesn't appear in the MCU until the end of Spider-Man Far From Home during a post-credit scene where Jameson makes a cameo appearance. The outlet is likely to make a far more significant contribution in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Simmons has spoken about reprising his role as the outlet's angry editor-in-chief, he also made a brief cameo during No Way Home's most recent trailer.
