    "Spider-Man: Far From Home" Features Two Important Post-Credit Scenes, And Here's What They Mean

    We have to talk about THAT cameo!

    Warning: There are MASSIVE Spider-Man: Far From Home spoilers below!

    Marvel / Sony

    Alright, so we knew that Spider-Man: Far From Home was going to deal with the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame.

    Marvel / Sony

    But, more importantly, Far From Home was inevitably going to deal with the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    Besides Peter dealing with the idea of being the new Iron Man, the two post-credit scenes set up some interesting developments for the MCU and I just have to discuss them.

    Marvel / Sony

    In the first post-credits scene, while swinging through Times Square with MJ, a video broadcast starts playing from J. Jonah Jameson from the Daily Bugle.

    Sony

    This is 100% when every die hard Marvel fan started shrieking.

    In case you need a refresher, J.K. Simmons infamously played Jameson in Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man franchise.

    Sony

    It's a nostalgic twist and the first time the MCU has acknowledged other Spider-Man franchises.

    In the post-credits scene, Jameson ends up playing a video broadcast from Mysterio, who falsely says that Spider-Man was behind the attacks in London.

    Marvel / Sony

    And, if that wasn't bad enough, Mysterio reveals that Spider-Man is actually Peter Parker!

    Marvel / Sony

    As you can imagine, this is a monumental reveal that will have consequences for future movies.

    The moment is also a fitting ending to this era of the MCU, which began with Tony Stark revealing that he was Iron Man.

    Marvel

    As for Jameson's role, he's always been linked to painting Spider-Man as a villain, so his MCU debut makes perfect sense.

    Sony

    Far From Home director Jon Watts told EW that the idea of J.K. Simmons reprising his role came up fairly early when they started to talk about Spider-Man's identity being revealed.

    It remains to be seen if Jameson will be a big part in the inevitable Spider-Man 3, but it's great to know that the the Daily Bugle exists in this universe.

    Sony

    After this first post-credits scene, Far From Home dropped another huge twist.

    Marvel / Sony

    At the very end of the credits, it's revealed that Nick Fury and Maria Hill were actually Talos and his wife Soren during the duration of Far From Home โ€” the real Fury is on vacation.

    Marvel

    If you remember, Talos and Soren are Skrull, who can shape-shift.

    While the scene is funny, it now makes me wonder how long Fury has been using Skrulls to impersonate him (and Maria) on Earth.

    Marvel

    Talos does say that he's only been Fury for a few months, but that doesn't mean he hasn't done it before.

    And now, this Far From Home post-credits scene makes me question an Infinity War moment between Fury and Maria.

    Marvel

    In Infinity War, when Maria and Fury are dusted she refers to him as "Nick" โ€” in Captain Marvel, Fury revealed that no one calls him Nick, in fact, he knew his boss was Talos because he called him Nicholas.

    Marvel

    Basically, I'm spiraling and wondering at what moments our beloved characters were actually Skrulls.

    Marvel

    So, there you have it! Spider-Man: Far From Home went from being a fun movie to making me question everything I know in about 5 minutes.

    Marvel / Sony

    If you need me, I'll be trying to figure out the future of the MCU based on these two scenes until some ~official~ info is released.
