For Marvel fans like you reading this article, I am sure Avengers: Endgame left you with all sorts of feelings that you couldn’t describe. But what do you think of the all-new Spider Man: Far From Home.
First and foremost, the new Spider Man brings the most anticipated Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to a thrilling close with a spectacular combination of teen adventure, and superpower parades.
Following tradition, of course, Marvel had to give us the juicy post-credit scenes. The new movie gives us two scenes, one mid-credit scene which is really necessary to see, and a final scene that will definitely make you re-evaluate the whole movie.
If you are like a lot of people that haven’t seen the new Spider Man Movie, then this will just be a bunch of spoilers. But if you are careless about post-credit spoilers, then read on!
First Scene – Mysterio’s Revenge and Spider Man’s Identity Reveal
Hmmm… This one packs a lot of meaning. In this scene, Spider Man throws MJ (portrayed by Zendaya) effortlessly through Manhattan’s skyline and eventually drops her somewhere on 8th Avenue and 33rd Street. Here a massive screen close to the Madison Square Garden displays some news report from TheDailyBugle.net.
We also see a video of the climactic fight in London between Spider Man and Mysterio (portrayed by Jake Gyllenhaal) and it looks as though Mysterio was killed by Spider Man. Also, according to the illusionist’s testimony, Spider man is apparently the villain from another universe causing all the troubles in London.
Furthermore, J. Jonah Jameson (J. K. Simmons), the host of TheDailyBugle.net, appears on screen to hail Mysterio as “the greatest superhero of all time” and prepares us for more.
And finally, Mysterio reveals to the world Peter Parker’s secret identity as Spider-Man, leaving Spider Man and MJ understandably shocked.
Spider-Man’s life will be turned apart in Phase 4, unlike Iron Man’s personal revelation of his identity, Spider-man will have to deal with the backlash that comes with public deceit.
The general public has also been fed Mysterio’s lies about the multiverse — we’ll see how they react to that.
There are so many people involved in these series of exchanges and mystery. Who knows maybe the host of TheDailyBugle.net got the video from Mysterio’s Assistant, William Ginter Riva, who escaped with a storage device after the showdown in London.
It’s also hard to know if Mysterio is really dead — since he could’ve used his special-effects wizardry to fake that too.
Second Scene: Nick Fury Takes A Little Vacation
Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) and his wife Soren (Sharon Blynn), a pair of shapeshifting Skrulls, pretended to be Fury and Hill. You might remember this couple being reunited during Captain Marvel, which takes place years prior to Far From Home in the MCU timeline.
Then they worked for the real Fury and were ordered to get the EDITH glasses to Peter.
The real Fury was chilling on a beach … that turns out to be a virtual reality (VR) simulation on a Skrull vessel somewhere in outer space. Perhaps he needed a vacation after being restored to life in Avengers: Endgame. We don’t see the real Hill. Hopefully, she’s enjoying a little leisure time too.
The cool thing here is that Fury and Hill were actually disguised Skrulls throughout the whole movie, which foreshadows a future Marvel Cinematic Universe where Skrulls secretly replace humans.
There are a few hints that the SHIELD agents aren’t all they seem during the movie too. Fury has an unusual reaction when Peter mentions Captain Marvel. “Don’t invoke her name,” he says.
This reverential tone would be out of character for Fury, but is absolutely in character for Talos — she reunited him with his family back in the ’90s. Performances by Jackson and Smulders are a little flat during the movie too; this revelation makes their performance even more impressive.
Maybe Talos was responsible for that Fury poster goof too.
It does raise the question of what the Skrulls have been doing since the events of Captain Marvel, when they left Earth to search for a habitable planet where their race could live. Maybe even more people have been replaced by the shapeshifters.
— nice Chips Everywhere, won’t you say?!
Honestly, there is a lot to look out for in the Phase 4 series of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So much excitement is brewing now, and I just hope Marvel can keep up with the hype they have ignited with the recent releases.
