‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Confirms These Two Avengers Died In ‘Endgame’
Spider-Man: Far From Home marks the end of another phase for the MCU as our favorite characters deal with the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame. While Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) death was a prominent subject in Tom Holland’s second solo outing as Spider-Man, Far From Home also confirmed the deaths Avengers, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Vision (Paul Bettany).
Spider-Man mourns Iron Man
Far From Home spent a good deal of time mourning everyone who bit the dust in Endgame, including Iron Man and Black Widow. The movie even started with a hilarious memorial clip that featured Whitney Houston’s track, “I Will Always Love You,” playing in the background.
Peter Parker struggled with Tony Stark’s death and the prospect of taking up his mantle throughout the film, finally coming to terms with his newfound responsibilities after defeating Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio.
According to We Got This Covered, Spider-Man’s story arc aside, Far From Home confirmed that we will not see Iron Man in future movies in the MCU. The memorial video also paid tribute to Black Widow and Vision, who died fighting Thanos.
The world also seems to believe that Captain America perished in the battle as well, so the rest of the Avengers have yet to inform anyone about Cap’s true fate.
In the final scenes of Endgame, Steve Rodgers traveled back in time to wrap up some loose ends and decided to stay in the past. He appeared as an old man in the current timeline of the MCU, so technically he is not dead yet — though he did pass on his shield.
‘Far From Home’ Addresses ‘Endgame’ time-jump
Dead characters aside, Far From Home did explain what happened to everyone who perished in The Snap. People now refer to The Snap as The Blip, and everyone who returned did not age during their five-year absence. Anyone who lived through the ordeal aged by five years, which has created some awkward circumstances amongst some characters. There have also been efforts to help people who suffered in The Blip, such as Aunt May’s (Marisa Tomei) charity that helps displaced individuals find a new home.
Beyond that, Far From Home did not address any larger storylines from Endgame or introduce any significant threats to the Avengers. These plot points are expected to be addressed in future films that are considered Phase 4 products. There is no telling what Marvel has planned for the upcoming films, but fans can rest assured that they have not heard the last of The Blip.
What’s ahead for the Avengers?
As far as Spider-Man is concerned, his story got a lot more complicated in the post-credit scenes. In the first clip, Spider-Man takes his girlfriend, Michelle “MJ” Jones (Zendaya), on a web-flinging ride through the city only to discover that Mysterio revealed his true identity to the entire world.
This mirrors what happened to Tony in the first Iron Man movie, though his decision to reveal his identity was not forced by someone else.
The second post-credit scene featured the real Nick Fury working on some project in space with the Skrulls. We have no idea what Fury and the Skrulls have up their sleeves, but it is safe to say that all will be revealed in Marvel’s next offering.
While we wait for more information on the next Avengers, Jon Favreau recently talked about reprising his role as Happy in Far From Home. The actor, who also served as an executive producer for Endgame, admitted that he sometimes forgets which Marvel movie he is in.
The studio has multiple projects in the works at any given time and it gets difficult to stay on top of things, even if you are one of the producers.
Marvel has not commented on its future plans for the MCU, though more is expected to be revealed at San Diego Comic-Con. Spider-Man: Far From Home is out in theaters.
