Spider-Man: far from home - All the questions, predictions and theories!

Spider-Man: Far From Home: Questions The Film Must Answer | ODEON

It’s tough being a Marvel nut. Just two months after the big reveal of Avengers: Endgame, we’ve already got a fresh set of loose ends, conspiracy theories and red herrings buzzing inside our heads.

With Spider-Man: Far From Home still a few unbearable weeks from release, these are the six questions we’d ‘encourage’ him to answer.

The world after Endgame

 

The first trailer and rumours about Spider-Man: Far From Home led many fans to think that the movie was set pre-Thanos.

However, the latest trailer and producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal  both confirmed that the film is not a prequel and does indeed takes place after Avengers: Endgame. In fact, Pascal said, “We are starting [Spider-Man] a few minutes after Avengers 4 wraps as a story.” 

It is also confirmed that Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) shows up alongisde Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) to recruit Spider-Man (Tom Holland) to fight a new threat: the Elementals. This raises some questions the film will probably have to answer:  what is the role of S.H.I.E.L.D in the world now and does project Avengers still exist?

Peter Parker and Nick Fury after Avengers:Endgame

Best fan theories so far...

  • Fury will provide Parker with a new suit in the film, and their new collaboration will lead to Secret War (a comic books storyline), where they travel to Latveria to destroy weapons being illegally sold to villains.
  • In the trailer we see the Avengers tower under construction. Some fans believe that this building was bought by Oscorp, and we could potentially see Norman Osborn/Green Goblin. 

Tom Holland as Spider-Man

Multiverse and MCU

 

“Beck is from Earth, just not ours,” announces Nick Fury to a shell-shocked Parker, before casually explaining that “the snap tore a hole in our dimension”. But slow down.

The revelation that there’s a series of parallel universes out there – each with its own timeline and different outcomes – is mind-boggling, meaning that pretty much anything is possible in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s next stage.  Also, both 2015’s Ant-Man and the following year’s Doctor Strange seemed to imply the existence of universes other than that of the MCU proper, and Spider-Man: Far From Home could follow up by changing things too...

Therefore, three villains made out of natural elements – sand, water, and fire - are introduced. Although they have been dubbed the Elementals, we still have no idea who these monsters are and what role they will play in the movie.

Mysterio played by Jake Gyllenhall in Spider-Man: Far From Home

Mysterio

 

In the Far From Home trailer, Parker and Quentin Beck/Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) are shown shaking hands, while director Jon Watts has said that “if Tony Stark was the mentor in the previous films, we thought it would be interesting to play Mysterio as almost like the cool uncle”.

But back up there: Mysterio (in his various forms) was always Spidey’s sworn enemy in the comic books, hatching schemes that included framing the wall-crawler for robbery and faking the death of Aunt May. Can we really trust this fishbowl-headed newcomer?  

Best fan theories so far...

  • Mysterio is a master illusionist and everything we saw in the trailer is all one big lie.
  • Mysterio is a mystic, similar to Doctor Strange.

 


Stealth Suit

 

Spider-Man: Far From Home's trailer confirmed the rumours that Peter Parker will have two new suits.

The first one is an inverted version of his original suit in black and red with a spider symbol on the back. The second suit is the one that most people seem interested in and features a slick, black design that allows him to blend in and hide among the shadows.

Most people believe this noir stealth suit was a gift from Nick Fury to help him stay under the radar in Europe and avoid international controversy...


What's next


Trying to wriggle out of the fight against The Elementals, Parker advises Fury to give Thor and Captain Marvel a call – only to be told that the heroes are “off-world” and “unavailable”. Which kinda raises the question: has Thor joined the Guardians of the Galaxy, as suggested in Endgame? And also: are we getting the first clues of where the Captain Marvel sequel could take place?
