Spider-Man: Homecoming with Aunt May almost dropping an F-Bomb in the MCU. Well, we didn’t get the complete version of that scene since this is the MCU that we are talking about, but it wasn’t even addressed in Endgame and Infinity War. We were looking for Spider-Man: Far From Home to address it, but since almost 7 years have passed since Homecoming, we can assume that May is already over it.
In fact, the trailers actually showed us that she is very supportive of Peter being Spider-Man. Since Peter recently got resurrected through the Snap, we almost thought that May will be totally against Pete following this Hero Gig, but since she herself was a victim to the snap, it seems that she’s totally fine with everything. She is even using Spider-Man to raise more money at her charity event. So her dynamic with Peter becomes very unique and never seen before.
Comicbook.com spoke to Tom Holland about this, and here’s what he said:
“Yeah, it’s an interesting question. Obviously bigger things in the MCU have happened that we need to talk about. So, when we find May for the first time, she’s kind of egging Peter on. There’s a very funny line, where she’s talking about, ‘I hope you’ve taken down some crime family.’ She’s in on it and she understands his power. She understands that he’s safe, most of the time. When he’s being the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, little harm can come to him, but when he takes on bigger foes, I think she is just as worried as she was in the first one.”
Holland then went on to talk about how Peter’s international adventures will need him to bring in his A-Game. He said:
“At the end of the day, it’s always about saving people and doing the right thing. The world is at risk in this film. I feel like the Vulture was sort of low level crime, it was under the radar. Not many people knew about it, but this is a world-wide event. The stakes are much higher for him and I think he understands that, meaning he has to really show up and bring his A-game. At the heart of the film, Peter Parker just wants to tell the girl he really likes that he loves her and have a nice holiday. But that all gets ruined.”
Spider-Man: Far From Home does look pretty interesting now. It has to do a whole lot and it seems that Director Jon Watts did manage to pull this one off as well. This film will tell us what happens post Endgame, and how are people coping up with the fact that the snap victims came home after 5 long years. Watts said:
“I’ve always seen Spider-Man as the most relatable superhero for that reason. He is on the ground level of this fantastic universe. So many things happened in Endgame, but you don’t see any of the fallout. So I used Peter Parker/Spider-Man as an opportunity to get that ground-level perspective to show you what it would look like if all these crazy things had happened. What would day-to-day life be? If you were snapped away, you’d have to work backwards and retake your midterms.”
Other than this, Spider-Man: Far From Home will bring in the Elementals, and address the Multiverse of the MCU making Mysterio of part of it. Peter and Quentin Beck will be posed as allies until Mysterio turns out to be the big bad of the story. Let’s see what happens.
Spider-Man: Far From Home comes out on July 2, and it is going to star Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), Zendaya (Michelle Jones), Jake Gyllenhaal (Mysterio), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Marisa Tomei (May Parker), Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan), Angourie Rice (Betty, Jacob Batalon (Ned), Tony Revolori (Flash Thompson), and Numan Acar (Magnum).
