A short passage on TheDailyBugle.net, a tie-in website for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, has been updated for accuracy within the context of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Just in time for the Blu-Ray release of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios put together a website showcasing The Daily Bugle‘s screaming headlines and sensationalist news stories, and among the stories featured are accounts of people who came back from “The Blip”, the reversal of “The Snap” portrayed over the course of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. (Tom Holland’s Spider-Man was one of the many people who came back from the dead.)
One account described from a man named Jack Triconi stated that he was seriously injured when he was un-snapped with half of the universe. However, this account itself contradicted Marvel’s description of how the Snap and the Blip actually worked, as the Hulk thought to bring back everyone in a safe place if they were in a potentially life-threatening situation. A new update fixes the error by explaining that the account described is fake, and that he was really trying to scam an insurance company to get money:
“‘My crew and I were working on the new Extreme Measures movie. I was right in the middle of a leap off a sixty-story building – the fallpad was below me and everything – and then I blipped. I guess they didn’t leave the pad there for five years, cuz I’ve been in the hospital ever since.’ Update: After further investigation it’s been discovered that Jack Triconi never blipped away at all and was faking his situation as a way to claim insurance money. His name was posted on the local docket this week after being arrested for insurance fraud and sentenced to months in prison.”
Some fans theorize that this change was made following the decision of Sony and Marvel to continue their partnership with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in a major role, and it was done at Marvel’s request. However, this seems unlikely, and the timing of the fix itself happened the night before the new agreement was signed. With the way that the last movie ended, it’s clear that there will still be an exploration of the aftermath of the two Avengers movies, and how Tom Holland’s Spider-Man fits into a world where the Avengers aren’t there to protect it. Worse still, the mid-credits scene showcases that The Daily Bugle has exposed his secret identity to the public, making it likely that Tom Holland’s hero will have his entire life compromised unless he’s able to prove his innocence and restore his secret identity.
The official synopsis for Spider-Man: Far From Home is as follows:
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. Smoove, Oli Hill, Remy Hii, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is now available on Digital HD and will be released on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-Ray, and DVD on October 1. A third film in the series, with Tom Holland and the creative team on the most recent film, is set for release on July 16, 2021.
