There’s So Much Spider-Man News and So Little Time

**Spoilers for Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame within.**

J. Jonah Jameson? Tom Holland is ready to play Spider-Man for as long as we’ll have him? What is this? A gift from the Spidey gods? It seems as if someone out in the world was looking out for us Spider-Man fans. From all of the new content coming out for Spider-Man: Far From Home, we’re learning more and more about where the Marvel Cinematic Universe is heading.

First of all, let’s break down what J. Jonah Jameson means. For those who don’t know, Peter Parker has often worked as a photographer for the Daily Bugle, taking pictures of Spider-Man (ironic, right?). In doing so, he reports to his editor, Jameson, who was brilliantly portrayed by J.K. Simmons in the original Spider-Man movie trilogy.

So, does that mean we’re going to have a new Jameson on our screens? At least it helps to confirm that I’m going to get my dream of photographer Peter Parker in the MCU.

We’ve also gotten a lot more info out of the movie’s cast. One of the biggest happened to be the “convenience” of everyone from Spider-Man: Homecoming being a victim of the snap—except for Happy Hogan, apparently.

Look, I get it. They wanted to keep the cast they had, but also, wouldn’t it have been interesting to see Peter Parker and some of his friends coping with being left out of their classmates moving on? Instead, we have the majority of the cast being snapped away so the writers don’t have to deal with that, including Aunt May?

Another rumor out there in the world is that there’s no Iron Man 4 in the works for Marvel. While we know the fate of Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame, many were speculating that we could see Peter Parker take on the Iron Man aura. The thing is, there are multiple options for who can be the next Iron Man, including Riri Williams as Ironheart.

That being said, who knows. We’ve started to see that there’s a multiverse forming for the MCU, so maybe the idea that there is no Iron Man 4 announced will change after we’ve seen Far From Home. Or at least, I hope.

On top of all that, we got this mysterious Into the Spider-Verse tease in the middle of all this multiverse talk, too:

Spider-Man: Far From Home is going to be an interesting followup to Avengers: Endgame, and I’m truly ready to cry throughout it.
