THERE ARE MINOR TO BIG SPOILERS AHEAD FOR AVENGERS: ENDGAME.
There are some more goodies from director Jon Watts’ sit down with Fandango as they talked about the upcoming Marvel Studios film Spider-Man: Far From Home and the trailer. The Spidey film will be the final installment in The Infinity Saga and also Phase 3 as confirmed by Marvel’s Kevin Feige recently in China.
As it certainly deals with the fallout of Avengers: Endgame and how the world will attempt to tackle new threats without a bulk of The Avengers around anymore.
Watts already revealed to Fandango that Liz Allan, Adrian Toomes, and Miles Morales won’t be appearing in the film, but was willing to explain some stuff about the characters that will be featured in the film including Nick Fury, Quentin Beck aka Mysterio, Aunt May, and even talked a bit about The Elementals.
First, Watts is asked about the film tackling the Multiverse (which was previously introduced in films like Doctor Strange and Thor: The Dark World), which is alluded to in the trailer as Mysterio is said to be from an alternate Earth and according to Jon so are The Elementals.
FANDANGO: Let’s get to the most important question: Does Far From Home introduce the Multiverse to the MCU?
WATTS: Well, I mean, yeah. We had to look at it in terms of the scope of what happened at the end of Endgame. Seeing all the crazy things that they did and all the questions that it raises. So we’re definitely trying to answer one of the big ones — alternate timelines. So many possibilities opened up at the end of Endgame, and Peter Parker is one of the few people on the ground dealing with them.
FANDANGO: Are you able to explain the rules of this multiverse in terms of how it differs from the Spider-Verse that we were introduced to in Into The Spider-Verse?
WATTS: I wouldn’t dare! I’ll let Nick Fury do that.
One of the interesting things is that the snaps caused the rip in the universe and might have some consequences beyond Endgame.
FANDANGO: In the trailer, Fury says it was the “snap” that caused this rip in the universe. Does your film answer which snap it was? Was it the one that brought the heroes back or the one that killed the villains?
WATTS: Yeah, these are all great questions and there are so many answers, but I don’t want to give it away.
There is also some confirmation from Watts that The Elementals come from the same Earth as Mysterio, how they were brought to Parker’s Earth remains to be seen.
FANDANGO: And these elemental monsters… are they from another Earth, too? The same one Mysterio claims to be from?
WATTS: Yes, exactly. Exactly. They’re both from the same sort of parallel dimension, yeah.
He also talked about how Nick Fury and Quentin Beck are thrust into the story.
FANDANGO: Speaking of Nick Fury, what version of Fury are we seeing in this movie? Is he back running a new organization?
WATTS: Well, that was what was very exciting to me because this is a version of Nick Fury I don’t think we’ve ever seen, which is a Nick Fury who is playing catch-up. He disappeared for five years and the world changed dramatically in his absence, and here he is trying to put together a new team.
FANDANGO: So is that his mission here — to put together a new team?
WATTS: Yes, Spider-Man and Mysterio are being recruited to tackle this threat of the Elementals. That’s what Nick Fury does, but now things are crazier than usual.
FANDANGO: Who is Mysterio when we first meet him and what is his agenda?
WATTS: In the film, it’s similar to the trailer, he is introduced as a potential ally to fight off this elemental threat.
Jon also suggests that Aunt May was snapped responding to the question with: “She disappeared and came back”.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released by Sony Pictures on July 2nd.
