Spider-Man's Daily Bugle Website Totally Challenges Kevin Feige's Comments On The Blip In Endgame

Well, this is awkward.

The release of Spider-Man: Far From Home marked the ending of Phase Three in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it looks like Sony is changing Kevin Feige’s version of what happened after The Blip with their new Daily Bugle website.

The end of Far From Home brought back J.K. Simmons as a new version of J. Jonah Jameson and this time they’ve given The Daily Bugle its own in-universe website and it’s challenging one of Feige’s previous comments about The Blip in Avengers: Endgame.

The Blip is the name given to the moment all the dusted characters from Avengers: Infinity War returned as a result of Hulk’s snap in Endgame. Spider-Man: Far From Home used the fact that half of the population suddenly returned as comedy for their film by showing how high school was affected.

After Endgame’s release, Feige revealed that everyone who was dusted mid-flight or in a precarious position weren’t hurt.

He spoke to Empire following a lot of fan concern, saying those who could have died in accidents were put back in a safe place when they were snapped back.

“If people were in an airplane when they were dusted, they didn’t return at 35,000 feet. They didn’t fall to their deaths because Smart Hulk is smart, and when he snapped… You can wish for whatever you want and you can wish for everyone to come back safely. Done.”

However, The Daily Bugle tells another story with a ‘testimonial’ from a man named Jack Triconi who returned in The Blip.

“My crew and I were working the new Extreme Measures movie. I was right in the middle of a leap off a sixty-story building – the fallpad was below me and everything – and then I blipped. I guess they didn’t leave the pad there for five years, cuz I’ve been in the hospital ever since,” it reads.

However, it now features an update that reads, “Update: After further investigation it’s been discovered that Jack Triconi never blipped away at all and was faking his situation as a way to claim insurance money. His name was posted on the local docket this week after being arrested for insurance fraud and sentenced to months in prison.”

So has Sony taken a few liberties with the story? Or is it purposefully bending the truth given this new version of Jameson seems to be the host of a conspiracy theory series rather than a newspaper editor?

I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens in the third Spider-Man film before we know what’s happening there…

Spider-Man: Far From Home is out on Blu-Ray from October 1.

Tom Hiddleston Once Asked Chris Hemsworth To Punch Him In The Face And Immediately Regretted It

"I think you should just hit me in the face."

One of the best relationships in the MCU would have to be between Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Their chemistry has been one of the more interesting dynamics of the MCU and Loki is often considered the best villain of the 20+ films.

While Loki and Thor’s relationship constantly changed between brothers and enemies, Hiddleston and Hemsworth also seemingly had a bit of a funny relationship with the English actor saying he once encouraged the Aussie star to punch him in the face. Unsurprisingly, he immediately regretted it.

While filming Avengers, where Loki leads Thanos’ army into battle with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, there’s one scene where Hemsworth had to hit Hiddleston across the face, but the Loki actor was having trouble really selling the punch, so he asked him to punch him for real.

Speaking on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Hiddleston said, “There was actually a scene in Avengers 1, the first Avengers movie, where Thor had to strike Loki across the face and I was wearing the horns, which weighed about 30 lbs, and I couldn’t really sell the hit, the smack.

“So, I just said to Chris I think you should just hit me in the face. It’s a terrible idea, and I went down like a stone. I suppose on stage when you’re doing a fight you have to it every night for 100 odd performances, I think if I was being hit in the face by Chris Hemsworth day after day, I don’t know if I would be able to manage that. It wouldn’t be sustainable.”

Hiddleston also attempted to talk about his new Disney+ series, also called Loki, but there was very little that he could give away.

“In the years since Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame… Two questions I’ve been asked are ‘is Loki really dead?’ and ‘what’s Loki doing with that cube?’ It’s always the cube somehow! And this series will answer both of those questions.”

Colbert tried to trick Hiddleston into revealing more, saying, “I understand that there’s time travel in this, that much we know, that there’s time travel in this… This is the reveal, no, Disney called and said it’s OK! You can tell me.

“There’s time travel and the first episode’s got to be you going back to kill baby Hitler, right? Gotta be!”

Hiddleston hesitated and didn’t respond, so Colbert joked, “Wow! You can’t even say it’s NOT that!”

Earlier this year, The Hollywood Reporter suggested this as the synopsis, “Loki as the trickster and shape-shifter pops up throughout human history as an unlikely influencer on historical events.”

So, that Hitler thing could be true, I guess?

The show is set for release in early to mid-2021.

Um, Spider-Man: Far From Home Totally Snubbed The Hulk And How Dare They?

How did we not notice this?

In Avengers: Endgame, Tony Stark may have been the one who died sacrificing himself for the world when he got rid of Thanos and his crew, but it was the Hulk who brought everyone back after they were dusted in Avengers: Infinity War.

Now, one eagle-eyed fan has revealed that Spider-Man: Far From Home totally snubbed Mark Ruffalo’s Smart Hulk and we didn’t even notice it!

In the movie, we see how the world is recovering after the events of Endgame and in the first few scenes of the movie we are updated on The Blip and The Snap thanks to Midtown Science’s morning announcements.

While explaining how the Avengers fought Thanos and brought back those who were dusted, the screen shows promo shots of some of the heroes involved in defeating him. But the Hulk isn’t included!

One fan even commented about how strange it was that Bucky Barnes was included in the photo despite the fact he was a wanted criminal during most of his time in the MCU.

Smart Hulk was the one who was chosen to use the Infinity Stones to bring everyone back because it was assumed that he would be able to survive any level of radiation from the Stones. While he was correct, his arm was permanently damaged by The Blip.

What’s even funnier about the Far From Home graphic is the fact that Black Panter, Scarlett Witch and Bucky Barnes made it in despite the fact they were all dusted and therefore had nothing to do with The Blip and bringing everyone back. However, they did, of course, play a part in the final battle so there is that, I guess.

It’s also interesting to note that Smart Hulk is missing from the graphic because he became somewhat of a celebrity during the five-year time jump and was seen posing for photos with excited fans in Endgame.

Sadly, now that Spider-Man is no longer part of the MCU, we won’t expect to see him interacting with any Marvel characters in the future. Unless a miraculous deal is somehow made between Sony and Marvel in the foreseeable future, but we’re not holding our breath…
