The Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer has proposed many different thoughts in our mind regarding how things are in Far From Home and how things ended in Avengers: Endgame. We’ve discussed the fact that Spider-Man: Far From Home could be a sequel to Avengers: Endgame and a prequel to Infinity War at the same time, as the way things conclude in Endgame, could lead to a new timeline that takes the MCU forward.
But there are theories out there which suggest that there could be two alternate timelines/realities which get created and all the Disintegrated characters were transported into different timelines. Well, there is a new aspect altogether, which lines partially with both these theories mentioned above. According to Reddit user swayde620, Spider-Man: Far From Home will take place in an alternate dimension and that will solve all the hidden clues that were in the trailer which Sony released recently.
The Redditor wrote:
“My theory is that Peter Park ends up in an alternate universe/dimension post decimation. It’s likely the same thing happened to the other dusted characters, but since we’re dealing with Spider-Man, we’ll focus on him….This theory lines up with Feige’s statement about the title. FFH refers to Peter being in Europe in the movie and it could also refer to him not being in his default reality during the movie. The tone of the trailer and behavior of the characters don’t seem to be impacted by the decimation. Of course, we don’t know how Endgame will conclude, but I don’t see it ending in a way where the characters either don’t remember the decimation or “it never happened”. Again, this would completely undercut the ending of Infinity War. There has to be lasting consequences of the decimation.”
Well, I totally agree to the fact that the events of Avengers: Infinity War should have lasting consequences as those events marked a culmination event that we always wanted to see. Marvel should not erase everything they built using time travel. The Redditor continues:
“Another interesting aspect of this theory is that it would mean we won’t get Peter Parker back in the default reality by the end of Endgame! Also, all the other characters in FFH including Aunt May, Fury, Hill and Happy would be a part of that alternate reality (Peter would be the only one out of place there, but unknowingly). This alternate reality theory would also explain Tony’s absence. Maybe he died under different circumstances or maybe he’s just not in the script, because the story didn’t require him to be…just like any other MCU movie that doesn’t include x,y and z characters.”
This could be an interesting take for the future of the MCU, as all the characters will somehow have to make it back to their original realities. But this won’t stand long if you think about it, as these characters will be returning in Avengers: Endgame. They will have a resurrection of sorts and Endgame will set them on their journeys of Phase 4.
Moving ahead of this, the Redditor shares his opinion upon Mysterio’s character arc in the film, and it is similar to what we have deduced in the past.
“We also see Mysterio being a hero in the trailer. Makes sense in an alternate reality! The prevailing theory is that Mysterio is duping everyone and making himself out to be a hero by using his illusions. Based on common knowledge of the character from the comics and cartoons, I feel like that would be too obvious of a plot point in the movie.”
The Redditor then himself agrees to the fact that Alternate Realities is not the way to tell convincing stories as they undermined the stories told in the past in major ways. But if Marvel is taking this route, then this could lead to some other propositions as well. This could be a way in which Sony could take Spider-Man back and pit him with Venom, but we all know that this is a very unlikely way for doing that.
Avengers: Endgame hits the theatres on April 26.
