Spider-Man: Far From Home is absolutely crushing it at the box office—Forbes reports it has crossed the $600 million mark worldwide—and fans are already speculating what will happen next in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
*Spoilers for Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home follow*
Spider-Man: Far From Home was an important film for the MCU, not just story-wise but also as a closure point for the “Phase 3” slate of movies. With this movie, the Infinity Saga that the first 23 films created has officially come to a close. In Avengers: Endgame, Thanos is finally defeated and the universe is forever altered, thanks to “the Decimation” or “the Blip.” Some of our favorite heroes, like Iron Man and Black Widow, give their lives in the effort to stop him, and Captain America decides to go back in time to live out his life with his true love, Peggy Carter. In these heroes’ absence, other characters are going to have to step up to fill the void, thus laying the groundwork for some very interesting possibilities.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is full of Easter eggs and clues as to what Marvel has up its sleeve. Hell, the post-credits scenes alone are enough for all of us to spend months theorizing on what they actually mean.
What happens next is anyone’s guess, but here are some of our favorite theories on what Marvel might have planned.
