As Feige said it last year, Spider-Man: Far From Home starts right after the events of Avengers: Endgame, and it will deal with what happened in those last 5 years, and the sudden emergence of everyone who was the initial snap victims. Spider-Man: Far From Home roughly takes place about 7 years after Homecoming, and that itself is quite a huge time jump. But, what’s crazy is that there’s yet another time lapse from the start of the film to its end, and it has already been given away by the trailers.
The marketing of a film is very important for it to bring in the maximum number of people in the audience, but it is also important for films to not give everything away in the marketing itself. Avengers: Endgame was a film that could afford to show the least amount of footage before it came out, but other films do not have that luxury. Still, it is not advisable to give away the ending of the movie in the trailers itself. This is a weird strategy that Sony keeps following all the time.
They revealed the ending of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in the trailers, and the same happened with Tom Hardy’s Venom. Now, an international spot seems to have given away one of the shots from the very end of the movie. Moreover, it has also confirmed a major plot point, and i.e. a Time Jump.
In the first trailer of the film, we saw Spidey swinging around New York. He was seen in front of an Avengers tower which was clearly under reconstruction. A Mysterious personality bought the tower and he seems to be structuring the tower. Most of us believe it to be the new Oscorp tower of New York but let’s not talk about that right now.
In the latest TV spot, we get a shot where Spidey is standing in his Red Black Suit in front of a building that seems to be new and has finished reconstruction. Now this image makes us believe that the entire structure has been changed. Pete cannot have a vacation for over a month and, a building like this cannot be restructured in one month’s time. So, it is quite obvious that from the starting point of the film to its end, there’s a time jump.
This time jump could mean anything! Peter could have graduated from his high school, and so much more could have happened. There’s a chance that we’re taking it all wrong, but it surely looks like a newly restructured Building which even has a similar statue in front of it. What we cannot understand here is that why do the marketing campaigns of all these films use the endings of the films? It’s just wrong.
Nevertheless, there’s still a good twist that this movie could be hiding from us. Here’s what Tom Holland had to say about that:
“There’s a scene in this film where audiences will feel like they were punched in the face. Even filming it, I remember walking out and then watching it again on the monitors and asking Jon [Watts], ‘Are you sure that’s okay?’ And he’s like, ‘No, it’s not. People are going to hate this scene.’ But it really… God, it’s pretty crazy. And it’s very similar in the way that it’s very tense, and it sort of rips the rug from underneath your feet. It’s pretty awesome.”
Spider-Man: Far From Home 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).
Here’s the official Synopsis:
“Peter Parker returns in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the next chapter of the Spider-Man: Homecoming series! Our friendly neighborhood Super Hero decides to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation.
