Spider-Man: Far From Home Deals With Post-Endgame World At Ground Level

Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers for Avengers: Endgame.

Avengers: Endgame was one hell of a satisfying movie. I still don’t know how in the hell Markus, McFeely, and the Russo Brothers did it, but they managed to create a satisfying conclusion to one of the most ambitious filmmaking experiments out there. Though while we got an answer to many of our big questions in that film, it left audiences with a lot more questions to think over once it ended.

Luckily, it sounds like Marvel Studios is well aware of that, and that Spider-Man: Far From Home will essentially be answering all of those questions. For example, what is the world like for people who were snapped out of existence and are now back in a world that’s been going on for five years? Speaking with Fandango, director Jon Watts expressed excitement at answering those questions.

“Yeah, that’s one of the fun things that we get to play with — the sort of real-world, ground-level implications of something like that. You don’t get to see any of the fallout in Endgame, and we get to explore that in our movie. It’s really interesting and fun.”

“…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.”

But just how deep will their answers be? I know one question I had had to do with something stupid like driver’s licenses. In this world, do they have to figure out a way to cope with a population that was born in 1988 but are still only 25 years old instead of 30? Believe it or not, it sounds like those are the kinds of questions they’ll be answering too.

“Yeah, that was one of the most fun things — just talking through what the most mundane implications would be. Like, your birthday on your driver’s license or passport would say that you are five years older than you technically are. Those sorts of questions are just so fascinating to me, and I really wanted to get into the minutiae of it and really explore that.”

Count me in. Just from a world-building perspective, I find this very intriguing, and it makes it all the more clear why Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was insisting that Spider-Man: Far From Home is the true ending to the Infinity Saga.
