Far From Home

Hola everyone.

Yes. The Marvel fans among you read correctly. The day has come. The day I finally set another part of my Marvel fangirl free. And how I’ve been waiting for this, oh yes. So, today guys, I’d like to discuss with you the one and only Spiderman: Far From Home trailer that not only blew me away but also confused the hell out of me. So many questions, so many possibilities. Let’s go.


Okay, so first of all, here’s my little warning to all of you who haven’t seen Infinity War so far (what are you even doing with your life?): this post will contain A HUGE FREAKING MASS OF SPOILERS so please continue reading at your own risk. Also, from this point on, I’m kind of presuming that you’ve all seen the movie and are kind of familiar with all the possible theories for Endgame and how our heroes will fight the dust (ba dum tsss). Mostly because going through all of them would take way too long, an eternity even, so if you aren’t part of the matter, here’s a link to my favorite post-Infinity War video by New Rockstars, that goes through all the possible ideas for Endgame – click me.


And now that’s off the table, let’s get to the most important part – the trailer. Here it is, for all of you who haven’t seen it or just want to watch it again, which I would totally understand, I watched it three times in a row:


Like I said, the trailer is damn good, let’s make that clear, but also wHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON????? Why is nobody sad? Shouldn’t they all be super depressed because half of the population recently vanished due to Thanos’ snap? Or because most of our heroes died? And why is everyone alive? Peter? Fury? And why is Happy happily flirting with Aunt May? Shouldn’t he be super sad because his boss, the man, the legend, the one and only Tony Stark aka Iron Man is either gone or still floating around in space? Which of course will never happen, because Tony is sacred and must be protected at all costs. Also, if they kill him, I’m gonna cry and sue someone. I don’t know who, but I’ll find someone. But besides that, there just has to be something wrong here. Can you smell it, guys? The secrecy and confusion in the air? I can. It’s lingering around like a perfume.


Okay, so, Spidey is alive. As we know from Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal, the movie is set literally a few minutes after the story of Endgame comes to an end and according to Feige “it was purposefully done like this. Like how the events of Captain America: Civil War impacted Peter as he was dropped off by Tony and expected to go back to continue his sophomore year, how the hell are the events of Infinity War and Endgame going to affect him as he, yes, goes back to his junior year?” But as we can see in the trailer, Peter is just doing fine, actually he’s acting like nothing ever happened. I mean, yes, he refuses to take his original Spidey-suite with him on his trip to Europe, so he can focus more on flirting with MJ (so cute), but that doesn’t mean much, even less when we see that May packs it for him at the end. Which again brings me to another question – where is the Iron-Spider suite? It would’ve certainly replaced the OG suite by now, I’m sure. So, again, what the hell is going on?


Since the trailer has been released, I’ve buried my head in YouTube and the mass of breakdown and theory videos for Endgame and Far From Home. And so far, I’ve heard enough different theories to fill a few posts with them, but for me, there are only two real possibilities:

Either the movie is set in another reality, like we’ve already seen in the new Spiderman: Into The Spider-Verse movie (which was mind-blowing, by the way), or the Avengers can go back in time in Endgame and make it so that Infinity War never happened, which would then explain why the Iron Spider suite isn’t in the trailer and why everyone is still alive and definitely not completely traumatized.


Of course, the second theory would also mean, that by releasing the Spiderman trailer, Marvel and Sony literally spoiled their own biggest cinematic event to date, which is Endgame, obviously. Which kind of annoys the frick out of me. I mean, I knew that there would be another Spidey movie and another Black Panther and another Guardians movie and so on, but still. As much as it hurt, I loved the ending of Infinity War. I loved how dark it had all suddenly become and how you could feel the hopelessness in the room. I loved not knowing who would actually survive and why and how. I loved the suspense. But now it’s just out there, the definite sign that Endgame will have the happiest ending ever and that everyone will survive and hippy-dippy, oh how aren’t we all happy.


And I don’t want that. I refuse to except it, to be honest. That’s why I’m currently hoping for the different reality explanation to be a thing. Or that Feige and Pascal simply lied to all our faces and that Far From Home is actually set right before Infinity War, which, honestly, would make the most sense, but oh well. Right now, we’ve got less than 96 days to wait until Endgame finally comes into the cinema and all of our questions will finally be answered. I honestly can’t wait. I’m not even exaggerating, I seriously have a countdown on my phone. Sorry, not sorry. That’s true dedication right there.


So yeah, there you go, my fellow Marvel fans and fellow readers. Those are all of my thoughts about the Spiderman: Far From Home trailer and what it could mean for Endgame and our favorite superheroes in a nutshell. As I said, I deeply love the trailer, but my head is literally stuffed with so many questions. And I honestly can’t wait for them to be finally answered. But what about you? Do you agree with my ideas or do you have other theories? Please don’t hesitate to leave your thoughts down below, I’d be so happy to read them all. And yeah, I hope you enjoyed this little post and that you’re all doing well. And, as always, I wish you all a nice week and thanks for reading. x
