New Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer Drops First Big Post-Endgame Marvel Details
**Spoilers for Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame.**
We’ve already heard from Marvel head Kevin Feige that he considers Spider-Man: Far From Home to be the last of Marvel’s “phase 3” movies, rather than the beginning of its next phase, and that it would guide fans into this new Marvel era. Now that the movie’s new Endgame-spoiling trailer dropped this morning, we know a bit more about just what that means.
Did you watch the trailer? OK, then you know that the rumors of Mysterio hailing from another dimension have turned out to be true. If you watched Avengers: Endgame, which I hope you have if you read this far, then you know that movie already introduced the idea of alternate realities through the mechanics of its time travel and a handy explainer from Tilda Swinton’s Ancient One.
They didn’t really get into the implications much in that movie, but each trip to the past caused a new reality to branch off wherein things were slightly (Howard Stark had a weird conversation and awkward hug with a stranger), or sometimes majorly (Thanos and his army just up and disappeared one day, which is nice for everyone) different than the one we know. When our heroes returned to their own present, they were also, technically, hopping between dimensions/timelines/universes.
That’s nothing new for comics, of course, where multiverses are the norm, but it opens up a whole load of possibilities for where the movies could go in the future. Again, that was largely unexplored in Endgame, but it could mean things are about to get weird, in a good way, and this trailer indicates that Marvel isn’t going to leave it unexplored for long.
Of course, there’s much more to mine here, especially on the personal level (this is Spider-Man’s movie, after all), with Peter mourning the loss of Tony Stark and the MCU wondering right along with us just who can step in to fill Iron Man’s shoes. There’s also the matter of Mysterio appearing to be on the hero team thus far, though we’ve got a strong suspicion that he’s hiding something.
Oh, and MJ seems to have figured out that Peter is Spider-Man, and she’s not wrong that it’s not exactly the best-kept secret.
