We saw a ton of hints to the Multiverse in the trailers for ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home‘ but there is a major theory that Jon Watts has which wasn’t directly addressed in the film. From the offset, we’re shown that Jake Gyllenhaal‘s Mysterio as well as The Elementals which he is battling are from another version of Earth who have crept into ours after Thanos snapped his fingers and brought down destruction on all of reality.
One easily overlooked detail is what Watts wants to discuss.
Obviously, there are spoilers below.
Okay, now that we’re just with people who have seen the film or don’t care about spoilers, this is where things get fun. We all know that the entire Multiverse connection was just a ploy by Quentin Beck to make himself a hero in the eyes of Earth. As to why this could be more than just a concept used by a conman though is from how easily Talos disguised as Nick Fury buys into the story:
“I do think about the multiverse thing. People were really excited about it. And we’re not saying that there couldn’t be a multiverse in this movie. We are saying that what Jake is saying — what Mysterio is saying in the movie — is bullshit. But there’s something that I think about is that the fact that Nick Fury, who’s actually Talos, completely believes this story about the multiverse makes me wonder… now, this is off book now, but like, does that mean that Talos is aware of some sort of multiverse? Because there’s… this is fan-fiction, to me. But he seemed to accept it!”
The Skrulls are a highly advanced species from space, and Talos doesn’t at all seem to have a problem with this concept. With that in mind, it looks like an idea which other advanced civilizations find as plausible and is an idea which we could later see explored in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Do you think that a Multiverse will exist in the MCU? Did the response given by Talos in ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ suggest that other species are already aware of one? Share your thoughts in the comments below, True Believers!
