As we reported last week, the new Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer was going to have a major spoiler from Avengers: Endgame. Man, were they right. It was actually really cool that the trailer came with a “spoiler alert”. If you are one of the few people in the world that haven’t seen the movie and are avoiding spoilers, don’t read the rest of it. If you have or don’t give a shit about spoilers, then read on.
As suspected Spider-Man: Far from Home takes place after the events of Endgame. So much so, that Peter is dogged by the images and honors to Iron Man around him. Still wearing his Iron Spider suit, Peter turns to Happy for some solace. It seems their relationship has taken a turn since their first go-around in Homecoming. However, they do share a common thread: the loss of their friend.
It seems that Happy is still tasked with looking after Peter, and finds out that Nick is looking for Parker. Obviously, Peter doesn’t want to talk to Fury, and who could blame him? We get more information about Mysterio and looks to help Peter during his time of trouble. Obviously, Peter is wanting to have a normal life but being a super hero has a cost. Will Spider-Man be willing to make that sacrifice that Tony made?
Hearing that the “snap” caused a rupture in the dimensional barrier “alternate universes”, Marvel has given themselves a way to sneak the mutants into their universe. Not only that, but it leaves open a way for long-gone villains and heroes to return. Of course, as alternate versions of themselves. Much like what all the shows on the Arrowverse do.
As suspected, Spider-Man: Far From Home will set up the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hence, why there was no end credit scene. So many people focused on its absence and not on what it meant. Post credit scenes drops a tidbit on the upcoming story. With the emotional impact of Endgame, it would’ve cheapened the film itself. Allowing it to end without a post-credit scene showed its finality. This was an end of a chapter.
With Spider-Man: Far From Home being the final Marvel installment with their Sony partnership, I am sad to see it go back to a franchise that doesn’t know what to do with their Spider-Man characters. Unless there is a change of heart, at least, we got to see what a true Marvel Spider-Man would look like. And it was glorious.
