New Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer answers a lot of your post-Engdame questions

Wil Jones

Even trailers come with spoiler warnings now

The new trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home is here, and it gives us the first look at the Marvel Cinematic Universe post-Avengers: Endgame.

SPOILER WARNING if you still haven’t seen Endgame – the trailer even stars with Spidey himself Tom Holland warning you about spoilers (yes, trailers have spoiler warnings now. What a time to be alive).

Ok, there is a lot to take in there. Let’s pull out the key points:

It does indeed take place just after Endgame, as had previously been stated. Tony Stark is dead, Happy Hogan is sad, and Spider-Man has some pretty big shoes to fill.

It looks like all of Peter Parker’s main buddies got snapped and returned – Endgame finished with those who’d been snapped being returned five years later, seemingly having not aged. MJ, Ned and Flash Thompson are all the same age, which is convenient really.

The big issue of half the world having aged five years while the rest stayed the same age is not addressed though, nor is the devastation to civilisation and world infrastructure The Snap would have cause. Maybe they are just gonna gloss that over?

Nick Fury is recruiting Spider-Man to do cool superhero stuff for him, with Iron Man and Cap gone. Thor is space, and Captain Marvel is busy.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio will start out as a good guy, or at least pretending to be one. With his powers being based on deception, it would make sense that he is pretending to be the new hero the world needs, while plotting his own nefarious schemes.

Most excitingly – and unexpected – though is the mention of a goddamn MULTIVERSE. Ok, there a loads of different multiple universes in Marvel Comics, but they mean one thing in particular for Spider-Man: THE SPIDERVERSE. Does that mean we are getting Miles Morales, or Spider-Gwen?
