While you’re processing the death of Iron Man and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Peter Parker, Nick Fury dropped a few more hints at where the future of the MCU is going.
From Tony’s glasses to a small nod to a “Spider-Man” character from the comics, INSIDER rounded up a few of the smaller details you may have missed in the newest “Far From Home” trailer. And yes, we’re going to talk about whether or not there really is a multiverse.
The name “Crusher Hogan” is seen on a sign behind Happy Hogan near the trailer’s start.
Joseph “Crusher” Hogan is a wrestler Peter Parker went up against in the ring when he was first trying his powers in the comics. We doubt we’ll see Parker go up against him in “Far From Home.” He has bigger fish to fry now that Iron Man officially made him an Avenger in “Infinity War.”
This is most likely just a nice little nod to an early “Spider-Man” character.
Peter Parker questions whether there is a multiverse. It would be the perfect way to introduce some new heroes (and villains) down the line.
When Peter meets Quentin Beck (aka Mysterio), the man claims he’s from another world. Peter gets excited and asks if there’s now a multiverse, created as the result of one of the many Infinity/Iron Gauntlet snaps.
The “Endgame” directors Anthony and Joe Russo told Entertainment Weekly that Captain America went back in time to live in an alternate dimension at the end of “Endgame.” So we know that other realities definitely exist.
Since Disney closed its purchase of Fox in March, Marvel Studios now has the rights to other Marvel characters like the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. The multiverse would be a perfect way to eventually introduce them in the MCU.
Is Mysterio a big liar?
This is one question we can’t stop thinking about after watching the “Far From Home” trailer. Nick Fury says a hole was torn in the universe after the snap, creating a multiverse.
Maybe that happened. But we’re less concerned about a potential multiverse and more suspicious of Beck (Jake Gyllenhaal). In the comics, his character, Mysterio, is a popular villain known for being a master of deception and illusion. The guy doesn’t really have superpowers – he’s just a really talented special-effects stunt man and magician.
We wouldn’t be surprised if Mysterio is taking advantage of the confusion after the snap and the loss of Iron Man to present himself as a hero from another dimension. Peter Parker looks as if he’s already in pretty rough shape after the loss of his mentor, Tony Stark, and Mysterio may see this as an opportunity to get close to Spidey.
Mysterio is married.
Who is Mrs. Beck? Great question. In the comics, Mysterio doesn’t have a wife. Either this version of Mysterio will have a wife he’s trying to get back home to in another world, or it’s part of an elaborate story the trickster is using to pull the wool over Nick Fury and Peter Parker.
When Peter Parker asks where Thor is during the events of “Far From Home,” Nick Fury conveniently tells him he’s off-world.
What does that mean? The end of “Avengers: Endgame” showed Thor heading off into space with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Thor looked like he was on a mission to discover himself, and we’re hoping to see that explored in the next “Guardians” or “Thor” movie.
An earlier version of this article mistakenly said that Fury said “Hulk World.”
This trailer is the first time we hear Carol Danvers referred to as Captain Marvel.
Carol Danvers is never called Captain Marvel in her own superhero movie. By its end, she finally realises she has these awesome superhuman abilities and embraces them without giving herself any sort of name.
Similarly, Danvers is never called by her superhero name in “Avengers: Endgame.” (Personally, I find that to be a huge oversight after two movies with Marvel’s first major superheroine.)
Instead, we first hear Peter Parker refer to Danvers by her superhero name, Captain Marvel, in the trailer when he asks why she can’t help fight the Elementals. (Maria Hill says she’s “unavailable.”)
Peter Parker is seen trying on Tony Stark’s glasses.
It looks like Peter gets a hold of Tony’s glasses, and this honestly may hold the key to the entire movie.
Parker seems a bit taken aback by whatever he sees. Either he’s very overwhelmed to learn that Stark’s glasses aren’t regular old glasses, or he’s learning something extremely imperative to the film’s plot.
Our guess? Peter learns that the Elemental villains from the first “Far From Home” trailer aren’t real but are some sort of illusion made up by Mysterio.
Even after he’s gone, Iron Man is still guiding the way for Peter.
