It turns out that the announcement of Spider-Man: Far From Home might have foiled Marvel’s plan to keep the hero’s Avengers: Endgame fate under wraps.
It’s a good year to be a Spider-Man fan because there have been three major Spider-Man related films released this year and they all cover different parts of the character’s history and tone. Venom didn’t feature the web-slinger but it did focus on his most iconic victim and this week’s Spdier-Man: Into the Spider-Verse delivers Spider-Men in all shapes and sizes. One of the more devastating appearances of the character though was Tom Holland’s Peter Parker in Avengers: Infinity War.
The iconic Marvel hero was one of the victims of the Decimation in Avengers: Infinity War and while some fans were broken up by the sad exit, there were many who also felt the moment was a bit deflated due to the announcement of next year’s Spider-Man: Far From Home. A new report from Vanity Fair reveals that Marvel wanted to keep Spider-Man’s return a secret, but Sony’s desire to announce and release Far From Home in 2019 caused problems with those plans.
Although Avengers: Endgame is expected to bring many dead characters back, in one way or another, it doesn’t mean that there won’t be other deaths along the way. One thing that’s for sure though is that there will be no shortage of Spidey films in the future. Not only will Tom Holland continue to lead his own trilogy, but sequels and spin-offs to both Into the Spider-Verse and Venom have also already been announced.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Spider-Man Far From Home and Avengers: Endgame as soon as more information becomes available. Which upcoming Spider-Man related movie are you most excited about? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.
Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click "Next" to find out.
1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes' (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as "MJ" that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.
Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter's motivations in Far From Home.
2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home
Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter's secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she's aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.
3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic Affair
This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won't be awkward for Peter.
4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury
The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.
The unlikely duo has been described to have a "brothers in arms" dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?
5. Spider-Man & Mysterio's Relationship Is The Central Focus
During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:
"The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There's no one more professional than him."
Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.
