Joe Russo Explains How 'Avengers: Endgame' Continues In 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'

We know that ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home‘ is coming out now that ‘Avengers: Endgame‘ has been released and you can’t help but wonder how the films will connect. If you haven’t seen Endgame yet, you may wonder if this is a prequel or, if it is a sequel, how Spidey is back. If you have seen the movie, you likely have even more questions in mind.

Thankfully, The Russo Brothers have been taking interviews left and right as of late and in one set of questions he shares how the movie that was just released mixes things up in Peter Parker’s world.

We’re going to be talking some serious spoilers from ‘Avengers: Endgame’ here so please jump out now if you somehow haven’t made it to the theater yet!

At this point, you either don’t care about spoilers or have seen the film. Let’s dive right in! When Iron Man snapped his fingers to right the wrongs of Thanos near the end of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ we saw those who were taken out in The Decimation return to the land of the living. Only, they haven’t been living their lives for the past five years while everyone else had been. While the story will likely give us a view on how Parker is dealing with the loss of Tony Stark the bigger picture will also show us how those who have been alive the past five years are suddenly dealing with those who were dead.

According to Joe Russo:

“Yes, those people whom was lucky to survive the snap are 5 years older than the people who just got back. The reason Spider-Man saw his friend again in high school at the end was simply because his friends were unfortunately also dusted like Spider-Man was. Of course, there are people in his grade whom didn’t die and they are probably already in colleges by now.”

He went on to say that while “Parker’s reunion with Ned was a touching moment. There are also people whom indeed moved on but suddenly were reunited with their lost ones. Yeah, it’s a complicated world now.”

As much as I want to see more of Spidey’s adventures you can easily tell why he wants this trip just to be a vacation even though that isn’t what will play out.

How much of fallout from ‘Avengers: Endgame’ do you feel will play into ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’? Do you think this will be an ongoing plot throughout the movie or will we just get hints of it as we see a world trying to readjust to the old normality?
