Spider-Man: Far From Home opened the Marvel Cinematic Universe in some big ways but it seems that it may have also hinted at the arrival of the Fantastic Four.
The Fantastic Four hint in question happens towards the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home. During the scene, Spider-Man is swinging through New York City before ending up in front of Avengers Tower. You may remember that in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Tony Stark sold the tower after moving the Avengers base to another location. But it seems that the tower may have found a buyer in the Fantastic Four.
The Fantastic Four tease in question in the Spider-Man film is so subtle that you may have missed it altogether. In front of the former Avengers tower is a sign that says “We Can’t Wait To Show You What Comes Next”. The sentence was broken up with the numbers 1, 2, 3 and a mysterious question mark. While this does not confirm anything, it’s the closest that we’ve seen to any kind of teaser for the Fantastic Four since Disney’s acquisition of Fox.
When asked about the sign by Comicbook.com, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said that he hadn’t seen the sign:
“I didn’t see a sign there yet. I always think the speculation fuels it, whether that speculation is correct, as it sometimes is, or if that speculation is wrong, as it often is.”

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:
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.

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 Kingstars 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.
