Fans are trying their best to try and determine just when Spider-Man: Far From Home takes place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline.
A futile effort, mind you, given how Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has stated in the past that the new Spider-Man film takes place after both Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Still, some do wonder if this is a prequel to all of that, given that Peter Parker is alive and well. But no, this is definitely in a post-Endgame world. However, one fan did notice something peculiar in the trailer for Far From Home.
What do I mean by this? Jill Pantozzi at io9 tweeted out an image of Peter Parker’s passport while asking for clarification from Marvel about whether Peter is okay after Infinity War. In response, she noticed that the image of Peter Parker’s passport doesn’t have a year on it for when it would have to have been approved. Here, have a look.
Fans: Marvel, please tell us Peter's ok after Infinity War!!!!

Now granted, the date could just be an intentional omission from the trailer and we’ll see it in the final product. Don’t forget, remember in the second trailer for Captain America: Civil War when we saw the two sides of heroes running towards each other? You’ll recall that Spider-Man was on Team Iron Man, but he wasn’t seen running alongside Stark and the others… in the trailer. But he was there in the finished version. The same could easily be applicable here.
Keeping the year off would keep fans in suspense as to when Far From Home takes place even though, again, there’s already official clarification that this is after the events of the two recent Avengers films that precede it. Still, though, what do you think about the year being omitted from the Far From Home trailer? An intentional omission to keep fans in the dark as to the film’s placement in the MCU timeline? Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments below.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Micheal Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Marisa Tomei, Tony Revolori, Acar, J. B. Smoove, Oli Hill, Remy Hii and Hemky Madera.
The film will swing into theaters on July 5, 2019.
The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
Here are the 9 theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”
