After the credits begin to roll on Spider-Man: Far From Home, Marvel fans are treated to not just one, but two post-credits scenes, one of which will have huge consequences on Tom Holland’s journey as Peter Parker going forward. Spoiler warning!
Up first is the mid-credits scene, which picks back up right where the film left off, extending the end sequence of Spider-Man and MJ (Zendaya) swinging through New York City together. The scene itself is actually one that was glimpsed in the film’s marketing campaign (and set photos): when MJ tells Spider-Man that she’ll “never be doing that again.” Now, seriously. This is your last chance to avoid major spoilers for Far From Home.
Once it’s time to go, Spider-Man jumps up onto a light pole and is about ready to swing away when suddenly a breaking newscast grabs his attention. The report itself features The Daily Bugle’s J. Jonah Jameson, played by none other than J.K. Simmons. The actor reprises his role as the eccentric publisher from the Sam Raimi trilogy, revealing a video that has been edited by Mysterio’s accomplices to paint Spider-Man as the real villain behind the events overseas. Peter is shown taking control of EDITH back before giving the kill order on the drones that were used to create the illusion of the Elementals and wreak havoc on London.
But that’s not all. After declaring Spider-Man a menace and Mysterio the real hero, Jameson reveals another video of the master illusionist who reveals that Spider-Man’s true identity is Peter Parker. Peter is left shocked in panic before the film cuts back to the credits.
The second scene featured after the credits of Far From Home is mainly a gag but still a shocking revelation nonetheless. The film cuts back to Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) in their SUV when suddenly they shapeshift into Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) and his wife, Soren (Sharon Blynn), revealing these two have been Skrulls for the entire duration of Spider-Man: Far From Home. As for Nick Fury himself, he’s revealed to be on a beach on vacation while these two have be skrulling around disguised as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents on Earth. The beach itself, however, turns out to be another illusion, revealing Fury is actually taking a break from things in space with the Skrulls.
Here’s the official synopsis for Spider-Man: Far From Home:
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.

5 Things Marvel Studios Will Likely Bring To Hall H At Comic-Con 2019
Following this year's Avengers: Endgame, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to be quite different moving forward and we've yet to really get any official details about what's next. And you know what time of year it is? We're quickly approaching the biggest geek event of the year, San Diego Comic-Con. And while it hasn't been confirmed that Marvel Studios will have a presence there, it would be very surprising to see the studio not make their mark in Hall H this summer.
Seriously. It would be weird if Marvel Studios didn't show up two years in a row. In the meantime though, while you wait to see if you're going to be spending your night on the cold concrete waiting to get into that panel, we've got a few ideas about what Marvel Studios might bring along with them if they do return to Hall H. (Which has all but been officially 100% confirmed at this point. They're coming guys.)
A First Look At Black Widow Solo Film
While Marvel Studios hasn't officially announced anything when it comes to the upcoming Black Widow solo film, it's pretty much well known at this point especially since it has already started filming. And with that being the studio's first release after Phase Three, it's a safe bet that Marvel will be giving it a big push at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. And even though the film will only have less than two months of filming done around that time, that really hasn't been an issue for Marvel Studios in the past. The studio has brought fans in Hall H first looks at films that hadn't been filming for too long in the past such as back in 2013 when they gave Hall H a sneak peek at the James Gunn-directed Guardians Of The Galaxy, which had only been filming for a few weeks at that point.
The Eternals Cast
It's currently being reported that Richard Madden (Game Of Thrones), Angelina Jolie (Wanted), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) and Ma Dong-Seok (Train To Busan) have all joined the cast of Chloé Zhao's The Eternals. However, at the moment, the studio has yet to confirm anything about the film other than it's happening. With cameras getting ready to start rolling on the film later this year, there's a very good chance that we will learn the full cast of the ensemble film during their presentation at San Diego Comic-Con with most if not all of them being in attendance.
A Film Slate... Of Sorts
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige recently revealed that the studio had a "five-year plan" for their next Phase of films. We know that the plan includes Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi, Black Panther 2, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 and will likely feature sequels for both Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel as well. Will that plan be revealed at San Diego Comic-Con? It seems very likely. Will it include some news about the Fantastic Four or Silver Surfer? That seems like a real possibility. How about the X-Men? Absolutely not. Please stop asking. Seriously. Just give it some time, okay? And while they will likely announce a slate, it isn't likely that they will announce everything they've got on deck. Not yet at least.
News About Marvel Studios' Upcoming Disney+ Shows
Though it's more likely that we will learn more about these at D23 the following month, there's still a very good chance Marvel Studios might give us some information about their upcoming Disney+ projects at Comic-Con. It has been confirmed by the studio that three series will be coming to the streaming service but for the most part, details have remained under wraps about them. With Loki, WandaVision (Yeah... that's a bad title.) and Falcon And The Winter Soldier getting ready to head into production soon though, we should start learning about them soon and it wouldn't be too surprising if Comic-Con is when Marvel Studio decides to make their big splash.
Though it's very likely that Marvel Studios will be announcing the cast for the upcoming The Eternals, that might not be the only casting announcement that will drop in Hall H. Beyond the film being written by David Callaham and directed by Shot Term 12 helmer Destin Daniel Cretton, there isn't a lot known about the project. That includes who will star as the titular character. While we haven't heard any names floating around, there's every chance that they've already got someone on board or will at that time and plan to make the big announcement at San Diego Comic-Con similar to how they revealed Brie Larson would be suiting up as Captain Marvel at the end of their 2016 panel.
