Here's what the "Spider-Man: Far From Home" post-credit scenes mean


Those of you who sat through “Avengers: Endgame” and expected post-credit scenes will be pleased to hear that “Spider-Man: Far From Home” has two of them. These set up future Marvel Cinematic Universe characters and give a nod back to “Captain Marvel.”

In the first post-credit scene, Peter (as Spider-Man) and MJ are now dating. She knows his identity, but it is still a wider secret. The pair swing into New York West 33rd Street and Eighth Avenue. A breaking-news sting hits a screen above New York Penn Station. Mysterio (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) was killed in the final battle but is seen giving a manipulated, prerecorded message that a drone strike on Tower Bridge was Spider-Man’s fault and that Peter Parker is Spider-Man. The screen then cuts to J. Jonah Jameson on The Daily Bugle repeating this exposé.

In the second post-credit scene, Nick Fury and Agent Maria Hill are seen driving down a city street talking about how Quentin/Mysterio fooled them. Then, in a huge twist, Fury transforms back into the Skrull Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), as Talos had been impersonating Fury throughout the entire movie. Fans will remember him as one of the initial antagonists in “Captain Marvel,” who had been impersonating Fury early in the film, then was revealed to be a good guy. Soren, who had been impersonating Hill, tells Talos they need to update Fury on what has happened.

Talos calls the real Nick Fury. We initially believe him to be on a tropical island, drinking out of a coconut, barefoot and wearing a tropical shirt. But this island scene is a hologram, and Fury is actually on the large Skrull ship travelling through space. He is relaxing and doesn’t seem to be in any present danger.

But what does this all mean? Watch our analysis above.
