Spider-Man, The Beginning or The End ?
Anticipation levels are sky-high, as Marvel fans eagerly await the release of the new Spider-Man movie. The trailer, released in January, has left fans bewildered. People are speculating the absence of Peter Parker's friend and mentor, Tony Stark or Iron Man. However, the main state of confusion lies in whether or not Spider-Man: Far From Home is a prequel to Avengers: Endgame, since we last left off Avengers: Infinity War at the snap of Thanos's fingers: presumably taking the lives of many of the Avengers. The latest trailer also marks the debut of Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio, based on the comics. The upcoming Avengers movie will clear out many of the lingering questions fans are still left with. However, for now, all they can do is cling on to the theories about when and where this Spider-Man movie takes place in the timeline. The main theory floating currently is that the movie is set prior to Infinity War, as Peter Parker seems to be active and present. Another theory suggests that the plot is situated in an alternate timeline, or in Endgame, they will find a way to reverse and change the fate of the universe. The glaring absence of Tony has left many to assume that he is actually dead, and the theory was further fuelled when Peter was seen avoiding his suit from Tony. There is also a check from the Stark Relief Project, signed by Pepper and Happy that tells him that he's "all alone" in taking on the latest threat.
