Mysterious Twitter Account Revealing A First Look At 'Spider-Man' Appears To Be Fake

Our Spidey senses aren't tingling anymore.

Marvel fans everywhere were collectively freaking out over a mysterious Twitter account that appeared to be run by "Captain America: Civil War" directors, the Russo brothers, and is sending out cryptic tweets, including what appears to be a first look at the new Spider-Man suit. Unfortunately, that may not be the case:

Another tease appeared to make a reference to Spider-Man's high school, Midtown High, aka Public School 108:

Though the account is unverified, its high-profile followers seemed to confirm its legitimacy. Reportedly, these included Jason Stamey, who has worked in casting on the Marvel movies, and Ryan Stankevich, vice president of global publicity for Disney.

Reps for the Russo brothers said they're filming and unavailable for comment, and the Twitter account doesn't seem to be replying to anyone who has questions.

But if it's not the Russo bros, who's behind all these mysterious tweets? It's pretty obvious, isn't it?

It's Loki! The God of Lies!

Ha! Nice one, Loki! You were obviously mad you got cut from "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and devised this diabolical plan to waste our time like director Joss Whedon wasted yours. Well played, sir. Well played.

Or, you know, it could totally be someone else. The mystery continues ...
