New details about Spider-Man: Far From Home are revealed as the film’s director shares some insight on how they’ll deal with the time jump that happened during the events of Avengers: Endgame.
While speaking with Fandango, Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts divulged new details on the film’s plot now that the Avengers: Endgame spoiler ban has been lifted. During the interview, the Spider-Man director was asked many questions, one in particular is in regards to the time jump that occurred during the events in Avengers: Endgame. Five years have passed since Avengers: Infinity War and most of Peter Parker’s friends appear to be the same age in the new trailer. Now, Jon Watts was asked if there would be returning characters from Spider-Man: Homecoming that have in fact aged those five years after Avengers: Endgame. Here’s the director’s response:
“Yeah, that’s one of the fun things that we get to play with — the sort of real-world, ground-level implications of something like that. You don’t get to see any of the fallout in Endgame, and we get to explore that in our movie. It’s really interesting and fun.”
The Spider-Man director did not reveal exactly what will happen during the events of Far From Home regarding the time jump, but there will definitely be some answers in the future. Avengers: Endgame had a five year time jump in which many people were seen grieving those who passed on after the events of the snap in Avengers: Infinity War. It seems that Spider-Man: Far From Home will be carrying on some of the implications seen in Avengers: Endgame as the film explores more of the effects of Thanos’ snap.

Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion King stars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
The Lion King will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019.
