Spider-Man: Far From Home is still a little over a month away from hitting theaters, but some new details on what fans will get from the webslinging sequel have surfaced.
First up, some fans have been wondering why Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is introducing himself to Peter Parker (Tom Holland) in Spider-Man: Far From Home when they were both present at Tony Stark’s funeral at the end of Avengers: Endgame. Apparently this movie will have the answer to that.
Secondly, that reliably candid Tom Holland accidentally gave away a piece of information about the dimensional rip that was revealed in the most recent trailer that introduced Jake Gyllenhaal as Quentin Beck, aka Mysterio. However, it might be considered a spoiler, so we’ll get into the details below. Read More »

It’s all been leading to this.
Avengers: Endgame, the 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is the biggest superhero movie ever in terms of size and scale, taking that title from last year’s Avengers: Infinity War. But even after multiple viewings, Infinity War‘s gigantic Battle of Wakanda has never quite landed for me – and now that Endgame has arrived, its own colossal final battle sequence creates a stark comparison (ha!) between the two. Here’s why Endgame‘s climactic action scene puts Infinity War‘s to shame.
Spoilers for both films ahead. Read More »
One of the most refreshing things about Avengers: Endgame is how conclusive it feels. Most Marvel Cinematic Universe movies have endings that leave lots of room for sequels, and follow-up movies to come. But Endgame puts a nice, neat bow on its narrative, resulting in a rewarding cinematic experience. But of course, the MCU will continue onward. Which means there had to be some set-up for what comes next.
Of all the upcoming MCU films, it’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 that receives the biggest jump-start. Some of the final moments of the latest Avengers film plant seeds of what we can expect from James Gunn‘s triumphant return to the MCU. And the potential is limitless. Spoilers follow.

The end of Avengers: Infinity War left a lot of fans shocked as half of Earth’s mightiest heroes, as well as their allies from across the universe, were suddenly snapped to dust. That cliffhanger of an ending gave a lot of heavy lifting to Avengers: Endgame, especially when it comes to how those survivors of the snap deal with the aftermath of such a widespread attack on those they hold dearest to them.
Thankfully, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely wrote both movies, so they were able to carefully determine who lived and who died. The roster of survivors ended up shaping exactly how Avengers: Endgame would play out, including who lived and who died in this culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But for every decision made about who survived for this epic finale, there was the possibility of going an alternate route that changed the face of the movie, including who was considered for Avengers Endgame deaths. Keep reading to find out more, but beware of major spoilers. Read More »

(Welcome to Road to Endgame, where we revisit the first 22 movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and ask, “How did we get here?” In part two of our look at Avengers: Infinity War: confused action, and a cliffhanger that asks, “Who are the Avengers?”)
[Read part one of our giant look at Avengers: Infinity War here]
The first big action scene in Avengers: Infinity War unfolds when Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Wong (Benedict Wong) rendezvous in Manhattan. It’s a fun excursion filled with setups about Infinity Stones, character decisions and the plot at large. Though by swiftly ensuring all civilians are out of the picture (unlike The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, where they were a constant presence), the scene is robbed of immediate stakes beyond the Stones themselves. Our heroes simply battle on empty streets.
The Avengers, in theory, fight to protect innocent people. But by failing in to dramatize this — both on Earth and elsewhere — the film misses a vital opportunity to contrast the Avengers’ actions with those of Thanos (Josh Brolin) and his henchmen (the nefarious Black Order), whose collective mission is genocide.
