The Daily Bugle site from Sony Pictures conflicts with Marvel Studios after Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Spider-Man: Far From Home delivered one of the best crowd-pleasing moments in its post-credits scene, bringing J. K. Simmons’ J. Jonah Jameson back as an Infowars-style commentator for a reimagined take on The Daily Bugle. But after Sony recently launched a website for the iconic Spider-Man newspaper, there might be a conflict between Sony and Marvel Studios on the specifics of the “blip,” a.k.a. when people were brought back to life after Avengers: Endgame.
While Kevin Feige had previously mentioned that everyone was brought back safely, and not returned to the exact places they went missing (like mid-air on a flight for example), an article on Sony’s Daily Bugle site contradicts that notion. It suggests that a stuntman was snapped out of existence mid-jump, but was brought back mid-air and broke his legs. Did Sony miss out on some key details that Marvel Studios already cleared up in Spider-Man: Far From Home? Read the quote from the article below.
“My crew and I were working on 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.”
However the Sony site mentions that the stuntman actually faked the accident for the insurance money and was convicted of fraud. So while it’s not evidently clear if Sony are sticking to the narrative set up by Marvel Studios in Spider-Man: Far From Home, it’s still a fun way of expanding the universe while we all wait for new information on Spider-Man’s cinematic future.
“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 sentence to months in prison.”
Do you think Sony are deliberately conflicting with Marvel Studios? Or is it just a fun article that’ll have no impact on the future of Spider-Man? Let us know what you think in the comments.
Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.
Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, Numan Acar, J.B. Smoove, Oli Hill, Remy Hii, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is now available on Digital HD and will be released on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-Ray, and DVD on October 1.
