The latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is finally here. Spider-Man: Far From Home is an entertaining romp around Europe with Peter Parker, who is still struggling with the death of his mentor, Tony Stark. But things are different now. So does the Marvel film have a post-credit scene (or scenes) like its predecessors? Let’s find out. (Spoilers ahead!)
A quick summary of Spider-Man: Far From Home
In the film, Peter Parker heads off on a science class field trip to Europe with several of his classmates. He is trying hard to avoid his responsibilities as Spider-Man, hoping to spend time impressing his crush, MJ (Zendaya). But Nick Fury finds him and brings him on to help Quentin Beck, a superhero from another version of Earth.
At least, that’s who he thinks he is. After defeating the final elemental creature, Peter turns over the reigns, including Tony Stark’s EDITH system to Beck, thinking he can be the next Iron Man. But it turns out that Beck is actually a visual effects mastermind, and has been after Stark’s tech all of this time. Peter then has to save his friends (and the world) from Beck.
Here’s why it was uncertain whether the movie would have a post-credit scene
Far From Home is the 23rd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and brings to a conclusion Phase 3. Previously, it was reported that Avengers: Endgame would do this, but Far From Home acts as sort of an epilogue, with a bit of explanation as to what happened as a result as Iron Man’s actions in Endgame, and a look at how things will continue.
Because of this, audiences weren’t certain as to whether the movie would have any post-credit scenes to tease what will come next — especially since Marvel hasn’t been exactly forthright with that information. Fortunately, we were appeased.
This is what happened in the mid-credit scene
The mid-credit scene (the one that comes after the fun, animated credits containing the actors’ names but before the black-and-white credits featuring the crew, etc.) picks up right where the final scene left off, with Peter setting MJ down on the ground after taking her for a ride with his web-slinging powers. Everything seems great for our hero.
But then, a big announcement comes Times Square. Beck’s recording from his time on the bridge has been spliced together and leaked so that it appears that he was the victim and Spider-Man killed him to stop him from saving the world in London. J. Jonah Jameson (played by J.K. Simmons, the same actor who portrayed the character in the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man films) then comes on and announces to the world that Peter Parker is Spider-Man.
The post-credit scene was an even bigger shock to audiences
If you thought that was a wild turn of events, get ready to hear about the other post-credit scene. We see Maria Hill and Nick Fury sitting in a car together. At least, that’s who it appears to be. They then morph back into their original forms: The Skrulls, Soren and Talos, from Captain Marvel. And they’re not exactly sure of how well they did at emulating their SHIELD counterparts.
Talos calls up Fury, explaining the situation and asking when he plans to return to his rightful position. We then see Fury ignore the call, appearing to be on a beach: However, he stands up, stretches, and is instead on a spaceship. He tells the Skrulls around him to get to work.
