The new trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home introduced the concept of the Marvel Multiverse.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will introduce Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio to the MCU, but the new trailer for the film indicates this version of the classic Marvel villain will have a different origin than his comic book counterpart. When Nick Fury recruits Spider-Man during European vacation and introduces the wall-crawler to Quentin Beck/Mysterio, the newcomer tells our young hero that they could use someone like him on his world. Spider-Man is notably confused by this comment, prompting Nick Fury to explain that Quentin Beck is from an alternate Earth, explaining “the snap tore a hole in our dimension.” A stunned Spider-Man then replies, “you’re saying there’s a multiverse?”
Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame followed our heroes as they traveled back in time to collect the Infinity Stones and use them to reverse Thanos’ decimation. Fans had theorized that their exploits created alternate universes that branched off from the point where they took a given Infinity Stone and it appears Spider-Man: Far From Home may explore that concept further.
How do you think the confirmation of a Marvel Multiverse will change the MCU moving forward? Would you like to see new stories told in different corners of the Marvel Multiverse instead of just the main MCU? Let us know below!
Here is 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.

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.
