Here's How Spider-Man: Far From Home's Cliffhanger Can Be Solved

Very interesting!

Spider-Man: Far From Home’s mid-credits scene showed Peter Parker (Tom Holland) getting outed as the webslinger by J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons) thanks to information from Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) and his pals.

In the mid-credit scene, Mysterio’s colleagues edited a video of the final confrontation between the villain and Spider-Man to frame Parker as his murderer as well as the mastermind behind the fake Elemental plot. They then revealed his secret identity to the world, something that’s never happened to Spidey in the movies.

While this could be setting up a very bleak third movie, another post-credit scene showcased an easy fix to the whole situation.

In the movie, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) recruit Spider-Man into getting involved with Mysterio in the first place.

However, we later find out Fury and Hill were never actually there, instead Captain Marvel’s Skrull general Talos (Ben Mendolsohn) and his wife Soren (Sharon Blynn) were posing as the duo after receiving orders from the real Nick Fury.

While we obviously want to know more about Fury and the Skrulls, the shapeshifters could be key to solving Spidey’s problem.

Talos or Soren could easily impersonate Peter in public, while the real Spider-Man appears alongside him to ‘prove’ they’re not the same person.

It might seem a little wild, but a similar situation has occurred in the comics according to ScreenRant.

A feverish Peter tells Harry Osborn, Mary Jane Watson, Gwen and George Stacy his real identity, but later organises a situation to have him attacked by the ‘real Spider-Man’ to fool them again.

In that situation, ‘Spider-Man’ was Hobie Brown AKA the Prowler, who wore Peter’s costume.

There have been other situations in the comics where Daredevil, Patriot, Iron Fist and Nightcrawler teamed up to help Spidey, however, given that none of these characters have appeared in the MCU, it’s unlikely they’ll help him out of this bind so the Skrulls could do it instead.

Talos was embarrassed by Mysterio and feels guilty about not protecting Spider-Man, so it wouldn’t be all that surprising if he felt guilty enough to help him recover his secret identity.

So, it’ll be interesting to see whether Sony and Marvel take this option to protect Peter’s identity or if they choose to keep Peter out in the open and vulnerable.

The other option is that the entire thing was actually another Mysterio illusion and it never actually happened? It’s not impossible.

Peggy Was Totally Lying To Steve In Captain America: Winter Solider And It All Makes Sense Now

This scene feels very different now.

In Avengers: Endgame we find out that Steve Rogers AKA Captain America went back in time and lived out his days with the love of his life, Peggy Carter.

Peggy and Steve first met during World War II, but their time together was cut short when Steve was forced to crash Red Skull’s ship into ice. However, they were later reunited when Steve was unfrozen, but it didn’t last long as Peggy sadly passed away from old age. In Endgame we find out Steve actually lived a full life with Peggy, we just never knew.

This means that after Steve goes back in time there are technically two Steves in the MCU, the one we see in all the movies and another one who was with Peggy, at least according to the film’s writers.

Writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus wrote Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, so it’s safe to say they know Cap very well. And they’ve previously said they’ve had the idea of Steve returning to be with Peggy for a long time.

So, this means that when Peggy sees Steve in Captain America: The Winter Soldier she knew about his future and was lying to him, reports ScreenRant.

In the movie, Steve visits Peggy in hospital and she tells him her only regret was that Steve didn’t get to live his life. However, she knows that Steve will live a full life with her one day.

She tells him, “The world has changed and none of us can go back. All we can do is our best and sometimes the best we can do is to start over.”

This feels very different once you know Markus and McFeely’s explanation about wanting them to be together.

This scene in Winter Soldier is where the time travel set up first happened. It was for this reason we never saw any photos of Peggy and her husband.

In an interview with Peggy from 1958, she says that Steve saved the man who would become her husband back in WWII. She says, “Even after he died, Steve was still changing my life.”

As we know, he didn’t die, he was just frozen, but it’s pretty crazy watching that back now knowing they got married.

Peggy had to lie to Steve, because if she told him what happened his mindset and decisions would have likely changed.

However, she could have maybe told him not to pursue a relationship with her great-niece!

This Is How Tony Stark Was Actually Able To Pull Off The Snap In Avengers: Endgame

He shouldn't have been able to do it.

The biggest moment of Avengers: Endgame came when Tony Stark finally stole the Infinity Stones, and said the words, “I am Iron Man,” before snapping away Thanos and his entire crew.

The force of the stones should have made it practically impossible for Stark to do, however, one fan has found a clue for why he was able to perform the snap that immediately hurt both the Hulk and Thanos when they did it before him.

The Hulk’s arm was badly injured when he did his snap, while Thanos’ arm and leg were also injured.

Stark, of course, died a few minutes after performing his snap, but he arguably shouldn’t have been able to wield the Infinity Stones at all.

One fan has found a clue as to why Iron Man was able to do the snap in the first place.

Reddit user u/WolverineKuzuri93 shared an image to Reddit with a theory suggesting that Stark was able to use the Infinity Stones and not immediately die because of the Arc Reactor.

This goes all the way back to 2008’s Iron Man when Yinsen tells Stark the Arc Reactor could run his heart for 50 lifetimes, but Stark’s response was that it could alternatively power something much bigger for 15 minutes.

Stark only needed to use the Infinity Stones for a brief moment and the Arc Reactor and his suit allowed him to do so. He was literally built for that moment.

Another fan, u/WalterM73 commented on the post, adding, “I think he lasted a bit longer because the nanoparticles kept on trying to repair the suit and took the main damage until the snap which was too much and eventually got to Tony’s frail human body.”

These theories address what was thought to be a plot hole in Endgame as we’d previously heard that regular human beings couldn’t withstand contact with an Infinity Stone. This is why Bruce Banner knows he’s the only one who could use the gauntlet to bring everyone who’d been dusted in Avengers: Infinity War back.

Despite how heartbreaking it was, it’s kind of nice that the man who started the journey got to be the one to end it.
