How does Avengers: Endgame lead into Spider-Man: Far From Home?


Spider-Man: Far From Home is coming soon and questions about its timeline are beginning to surface. Will it take place before or after Endgame?

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Avengers: Endgame.

If you’ve already recovered from the events of Avengers: Endgame, all we have to say is, “congratulations,” and also, “what’s your secret?” But if you’re like us and are still hurting from the emotional roller coaster, we feel you.

By the end of the movie, after we pieced together what little of our souls was left, we realized that the Russo brothers left more questions that have yet to be answered when it comes to the next film in the Marvel saga, Spider-Man: Far From Home. So how does Endgame lead into the supposed Phase Three-ending filmFar From Home?

According to Sony Picture’s Amy Pascal, Spider-Man: Far From Home will take place just “a few minutes after Avengers 4 wraps as a story,” and there have been clues planted in the trailer that have showed this from the beginning.

Going off of the events of Endgame, we know that the majority of the movie takes place five years after the snap. By this standard, if Far From Home takes place after Endgame, then Peter’s classmates (the ones who survived the snap) should technically have graduated by then. Those who did not survive would most likely have to start their grade over again with Peter. One of the final scenes of Endgame shows Peter going back to school and reuniting with Ned. Ned looks exactly the same age, so we could assume that he was one of the students who didn’t survive the snap. Going off of the Far From Home trailer, it looks like MJ and Flash are also the same age, so they might have also not survived the snap.

There are some other small details in the trailer that we should pay attention to in order to get an idea of when the film takes place. For one, we know that Nick Fury will play a big role in our favorite hero’s newest adventure.

In the trailer, Fury shows up during Peter’s school trip in Europe, saying, “So nice to finally meet you, Spider-Man.” This could potentially imply that this is the first time that Fury and Peter officially meet for superhero business. Though, at the end of Endgame, we see that both Peter and Fury are at Tony Stark’s funeral. Did they not get a chance to talk at the funeral?

In addition to this, we see that Peter and Aunt May are at some kind of fundraising event at the beginning of the trailer. Happy comes by with a check from the Stark Relief Foundation and it’s signed by Pepper Potts, rather than Tony himself.

There are a few scenes in the trailer that hinted at Tony’s death as well. For someone who was so involved in Peter’s life in Homecoming, he wasn’t featured in the Far From Home trailer at all. It was also concerning that Happy told Peter he was alone, and that Peter barely looked like he wanted to bring his spider-suit.

Right now, these are all the clues that we got from the first Far From Home trailer. Since it came out before Avengers: Endgame, they had to be quite secretive about how much they could giveaway. With Endgame out now, the next trailer will likely give us a lot more information about what to expect in this post-Endgame world.
