Just as “Spider-Man: Far From Home” closed the door on a few lingering enterprise left over from “Avengers: Endgame” — and the 10 years of films leading into it — the film’s stop credit presented a hint of what might lie in advance for the heroes and villains of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The solution may also simply be honestly, without a doubt some distance from home. Cosmically far.
(Spoilers will damage from this point ahead — challenge forth at your viewing peril if you haven’t visible the movie, or numerous other latest Marvel movies.)
Given that it became the introductory appearance of Samuel L. Jackson as Col. Nick Fury within the then-groundbreaking tag scene of the primary “Iron Man” film in 2008 that presaged the emergence of a more shared universe and the perception of a superhero team in the shape of the Avengers, “Far From Home’s” quit series places Fury to clever use another time as the MCU prepares to enter what Marvel Studios refers to off-display as Phase Four.
The series kicks off with the screen that the veteran S.H.E.I.L.D. Chief and his stalwart lieutenant Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), who’ve shepherded Spider-Man (Tom Holland) into superheroic provider during the film, are in reality a pair of disguised Skrulls, the shapeshifting alien race first encountered on display screen in “Captain Marvel” in advance this yr.
In reality, audiences met those precise Skrulls before in that movie’s ’90s-generation setting: Talos Ben Mendelsohn), who first seemed to be an antagonist to Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) and a young Fury however later proved to absolutely be looking to rescue a protracted-stranded organization of his humans, which includes his wife and daughter, from the nefarious Kree, every other alien race with its eye on Earth). He’s taken on Fury’s form, even as his wife Soren (Sharon Blynn) has assumed Hill’s identity.
Not best does this come as a welcome relief to audience members who’d noticed Fury and Hill acting a touch out of person (which include being taken in by means of Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio) and over-the-top during the film, it gives a neat access into the next interesting setup: Talos, whom we closing saw on top terms with Fury twenty-some years earlier, has been pressed into carrier through the ever-vigilant, usually-working-every-perspective superspy, whilst Fury is…Doing what, exactly?
That’s the big query: whilst Talos reaches out to fill Fury in on the occasions we’ve simply witnessed, and Fury is at first reputedly sipping a tropical drink on a solar-soaked seaside somewhere, apparently indulging in a getaway after the harrowing conclusion of “Endgame” (no longer to mention being Thanos-dusted and lifeless for five years). But we quick discover Fury’s handiest indulging in a simulation of Hawaiian holiday, way to some terrific-high-tech trickery, and is surely aboard an eye-popping spacecraft of a few kind. We have to’ve regarded Nick Fury never receives excursion days.
