The Spider-Man: Far From Home movie will have not just one, but two post-credit scenes that its audience can look forward to after watching the film.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has cultivated the concept of mid-credits teasers to hook the audience from one Marvel movie to the next. The production house also uses it to help stitch stories together—a concept that helped create the Infinity saga, and make Marvel one of the highest-grossing production houses in the world.
However, with the end of Marvel’s Phase 3, fans were disappointed to discover that the production house did not provide any form of teasers up until the theater screen turned black and all the lights were turned on. It was a rather dramatic and appropriate marketing strategy since Avengers: Endgame marked the end of the Infinity saga.
Fans speculated if that was the last time Marvel was going to introduce post-credits scenes in its movies. Fortunately, it is confirmed that they’re bringing it back with Spider-Man: Far From Home—Marvel’s return after Endgame.
We Got This Covered reported that a leak was released a month ago that helps predict what the two post-credits scenes will consist. Particularly, the sequence will already tease about the next Spider-Man movie and “introduce the Sinister Six, with Vulture and Scorpion returning and Mysterio joining the team. It may even introduce David Morrissey as Norman Osborn.”
Furthermore, the second teaser would include a comedic bit to help make audiences leave the theater with a smile on their face. “For instance, Spider-Man: Homecoming concluded with Captain America giving us a tongue-in-cheek lecture about the potential pitfalls of patience.”
Marvel fans will not need to wait far longer for Far From Home since the movie will be releasing a few weeks from now. Far From Home will see the usual cast altogether including Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, Samuel Jackson, andJake Gyllenhaal.
Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and his classmates will be traveling to Europe on a study abroad trip for the summer, which Nick Fury abruptly interrupts to ask Spider-Man’s help in saving the world from possible threats against Elementals. In the process, Peter will be working alongside Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) and help Parker’s character have a deeper understanding of his hero-always-saving-the-world persona.
Jon Watts, the director of Spiderman: Far From Home, told Fandango how the events in Endgame will significantly play in the movie. He said, “In classic New York style, everyone is just moving on and getting on with their daily lives. Ya know, half the people that disappeared are now back, so let’s move on.”
There’s also the possibility of seeing the fallout after Endgame, where everyone disappeared apparently aged five years without them noticing and how that will affect their passport applications and the like as Watts described.
Moreover, Watts said in an interview, “Nick Fury is playing catch-up. He disappeared for five years and the world changed dramatically in his absence, and here he is trying to put together a new team,” where “Spider-Man and Mysterio are being recruited to tackle this threat of the Elementals. That’s what Nick Fury does, but now things are crazier than usual.” This could probably mean that a new set of Avengers–probably with a different name–is in its early days.
Interestingly, Jake Gyllenhaal will be introducing the multiverse to the MCU with his character Mysterio. The multiverse was previously featured in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse—an animated movie that involved different kinds of spider-mans from different realities such as a spider-woman, a cartoon, and even a silent black and white noir version, to name a few.
In other reports, Tom Holland even expressed how he would appreciate working with former Spider-Man actors such as Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
“Of course I would love to make a movie with those guys, it would be so cool! It would be amazing, it would be really, really cool. And it’s something that the fans really want. So whether Marvel and Sony decided to do that, it’s up to them. It’s not up to me, I can’t walk in like ‘Kevin [Feige], this is what we’re doing on the next one.’ But it would be really awesome,” Holland said.
