It’s a post Avengers: Endgame world, everyone.

While fans are either crying, screaming, or preparing to write fix-it fanfic, we need to talk about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Specifically, we turn our attentions to Spider-Man: Far From Home, which comes out in July. It’s first post-Endgame film, after all.

Before we start talked, we’d like to forewarn those who haven’t seen Endgame that there are SPOILERS AHEAD.

Right, the 50% of the population that was snapped out of existence by Thanos (Josh Brolin) has been returned safe and sound. To those left behind, however, it’s been five very long years.

Yikes.

At the end of Avengers: Endgame, we see the Avengers and friends get back to their lives. One scene sees Peter Parker (Tom Holland) returning to Midtown High, where he’s reunited with his best friend Ned (Jacob Batalon).

Talking with Entertainment Weekly, director Joe Russo confirmed that Ned was one of the people snapped out of existence. There’s also something of an adjustment period ahead of those who returned.

“So… Ned disappeared as well. That’s the two of them seeing each other for the first time after having disappeared.”

Now fans have speculated that Spider-Man: Far From Home will take place before the events of Avengers: Endgame. Part of it comes down to a moment in trailer where Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) meets Peter, seemingly for the first time. Fans will remember that Fury did show up to Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr) funeral, though he showed up late and stood in the back.

Other fans point out that it could be a marketing misdirect. Synopses of the film also suggest that this is post-Endgame as well. Another suggestion? Peter’s reluctance to be Spider-Man in the trailer. After all, he lost another father figure in Tony Stark. Dude is probably grieving.

Answers will be given when Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theatres on July 5th.
