Spider-Man: Far From Home 9 Biggest Questions – WTF Was That Nick Fury Twist?

Spider-Man: Far From Home has swung into theaters, bringing us plenty of answers as to how Peter Parker continues his life after the little blip that is Avengers Endgame. But it also brings several questions with it, too. Some of them might have answers in the comics, while others ask us 'WTF, Marvel?'

In attempt to straighten things out, we've applied our Marvel comics and MCU knowledge to some of Spider-Man: Far from Home's most puzzling scenes and it has to make sense of it all

Full spoilers follow for Spider-Man: Far From Home, so suit up and crawl out if you haven't seen the movie yet.

Ranking the Spider-Man Movies

1. […] I don't really think of any really us [ Mysterio's claims of a multiverse in the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, but the movie makes it clear that no , there is multiverse now. Quentin Beck is a huge liar, and it's all part of his sneaky plan.

But is it really that simple? Beck refers to the multiverses of their code names, explaining that the planet Peter is from is Earth-616, and that Beck's original home is Earth-833. The official canon of the Marvel Universe at large dictates that every Earth in the Multiverse really does have a numerical code. So how could Beck be so spot-on about this Earth's code name if it doesn't know the big picture?

Another potential answer can be found in Thor: The Dark World, in which Erik Selvig has the word '616 universe 'written on a chalkboard as he explains the concept of convergence. Perhaps Beck learned from self-theory and rolled with it to create his own fake universe?

Another puzzle piece can be found in fact that, canonically, the MCU is Earth-19999, not Earth -616, which is actually the Prime universe for the comics. There is of course the potential that those on the MCU Earth think they are in the prime universe, but we're getting so far down the rabbit hole now that the oxygen is running out …

Also, given the cosmos -leading nature of Beck's claims, you'd think that Fury and anyone else involved with Beck would independently verify his claim using science. Apparently, everyone just got Beck's word for it, although Beck boasted that one point that his team was able to beam signals to Fury's satellites to know that their earthbound illusions were real so maybe that was enough to fool them.


2nd How to Deal With His Secret Identity Exposed?

In the post-credits stinger, Spider-Man's real identity is revealed to the world by none other than J Jonah Jameson, editor of the Daily Bugle (once again played by JK Simmons !). How to make a home from home with Peter trying to keep his identity secret, so this is a big, crushing deal for him.

So, who could help him out of this jam? With Tony now gone, Peter doesn't currently have a superhero figure to turn to, and as amazing as Aunt May has been, she's probably not in the business of wiping everyone's minds. Instead, this sounds like a job for Doctor Strange; He could cast some kind of mass amnesia spell, right?

Back in the One Moment in Time comic book storyline, Doctor Strange does exactly that. Along with Tony Stark and Reed Richards, he creates an account with Storms everyone's memories of the day Peter revealed his identity during the Civil War arc. With the Fantastic Four now in Disney and Marvel's portfolio after the Fox deal, perhaps this is the perfect avenue to introduce the genius intellect of Mr. Fantastic?

3. The final post-credit stinger reveals that Nick Fury and Maria Hill are in fact Talos and Soren, two-shape-shifting Skrulls introduced in Captain Marvel. Back in that movie, Carol Danvers learned that the army of Skrulls had been attacked by Earth, but actually refugees of the Kree-Skrull war. The end of the story saw Carol leaving Earth in search of a new world for the Skrulls to settle in.

But if Talos and Soren are working with SHIELD, does that mean that the Skrulls never found their new homeworld? Or did Talos and Soren get on so well with Fury that they decided to just come back and help Fury so he could "vacation"?

4. Is This Setting Up a Secret Invasion?

If you have been hanging around since 1995, you've got to ask: what's their deal? Especially when that deal involves working on one of the most secretive organizations on the planet. Captain Marvel may have established that the Skrulls were more multi-layered than the straight-up guys in many of the comics, but still remain one of Marvel's most iconic villains. Surely they will not be good forever?

With that in mind, Talos and Soren are in their way into SHIELD in order to build up to one of the most famous Marvel storylines of all: Secret Invasion?

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has said several times that, like humans, are not all good or bad so that rule out a potential Secret Invasion in the MCU. And Far From Home establishes that there are fewer cells out there so maybe the Skrulls will have a slightly different reason for secretly invading Earth?

With Thanos out the way, the MCU needs a good new threat to work towards, and a full-on Skrull Invasion wouldn't be a bad idea …

5. What, Nick Fury really was at Tony's Funeral, or Was That Actually Talous? [ComeonFuryyouwouldn'thavemissedTony'sfarewelljusttohangoutonavirtualbeach?TherearestillsomeemotionbehindthateyepatchWesuspectitprobablywasFurythere-giventhateightmonthshadpassedinFarfromHomesincetheeventsofEndgame-andTalosandSorensaidtheywereonlyposingasFuryandHillforaweekwhilehewasonanothermissionbutwastheirSpidey-centricadventuretheironlytimeposingasthesecretagents?

If it was Talos and Soren in Mexico at the beginning of Far From Home, then it begs the question: what on Earth does Fury think he's playing at? His whole reason for being able to protect the world from great threats, and yet he is out of new lead by sending two Skulls to serve in his place so he could vacation (OK, he's supposedly on another mission). Is that really what Fury does these days? It doesn't seem to be in-character, but maybe there's more to this than we currently know. Maybe Fury has his eye on a more serious threat coming from above? Speaking of which …

6. Where Is Fury?

After revealing that Fury and Hill were actually Scrolling in disguise, the final end-credits stinger reveals that Fury has been lying on a beautiful beach. Well, a digital recreation of one; as Fury walks off the sand it's revealed that it's actually in a huge, sci-fi style base. What is going on here?

One potential answer is that Fury is on The Peak, a huge space station that acts as the headquarters of the Sentient World Observation and Response Department. Better known as SWORD, the department is effectively the cosmic answer to SHIELD, and it would make sense for Earth to be put together with space intelligence agency in the wake of all the messaging by aliens in the Infinity Saga. In the comics Fury acted as the glue between SHIELD and SWORD, and there is every reason for him to be on-board the Peak.

. How To Have These Disgunted Ex-Stark Employees Been Plotting This?

Mysterio doesn’t act alone; he's backed up by a gang of angry ex-Stark Industries employees who are all hell-bent on using Iron Man's old tech-to-aid in making Beck appear like the world's next big hero. But how long have they been plotting this? Was this a quick plan put together to take advantage of the sudden power vacuum left after Tony's death, or something much longer in the making, perhaps originally designed to top Iron Man when he was at his height?

Beyond that, though, where are they now? Spider-Man may have defeated their current plan by putting their drones out of action, but surely there is plenty of other Stark gizmos they have inside information that could be used for nausea purposes.

8. Wait, What if you are in a plane at 35,000 Feet?

Far From Home, via some fun video clips filmed on student phones, reveals that those brought back to life by Hulk in Avengers: Endgame reappeared back in reality right where they are They were when they were snapped away by Thanos. That's all well and good if you were playing basketball in the school gym, but what if you were in a plane during the Snap? Do you simply fall out of midair and land in a messy heap after 35,000 feet? During a Reddit AMA, Marvel boss Kevin Feige pointed to the fact that Endgame Bruce is now "Smart Hulk", suggesting that he made sure everyone was safe when he brought them back to life. Is it really all there is to it? Don't try to overthink this one.

9. So the World Thinks Cap Is Dead?

A memorial video made by Peter's schoolmates includes a tribute to Steve Rogers, suggesting the world thinks that Captain America is dead. Of course, Endgame's final shows that Steve is not dead, merely very old. So why does the world think he's gone?

Presumably, Cap decided to live a lot, much quieter life after returning the Infinity Stones, letting no one but the Avengers know of his new existence. That makes sense; our Captain deserves a long, long vacation, after all. And there is no better way of getting an uninterrupted vacation than by making people think you dead and buried.
