We’ve all learned by now that when you see any movie set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you stay until all the credits have played and the screen goes dark in the theater because in almost all MCU films, there are extra scenes. We used to call the Easter Eggs, but now that it’s traditional to have them, they’re being called “post-credit scenes.” The final post-credit scene in ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ shows [***SPOILER ALERT, but shame on you if this really is a spoiler!***] J. Jonah Jameson on a big screen above New York touting Mysterio as a hero, Spider-Man as a villain, and outing Peter Parker as the Web Crawler’s true identity.
JJJ is presented as a tabloid reporter, the kind more willing to gain website hits than seek the truth. He’s played by J.K. Simmons, who also played the same role in Tobey Maguire’s ‘Spider-Man 3.‘ In a fun bridge between our world and the Peter Parker’s, Sony created a Daily Bugle website and stocked it with enough to make it look real! The centerpiece of the site is a video from JJJ speaking out against Spider-Man and shaming him for being a criminal and miscreant and scolding him for having powers that he has no right to have.

Fans of the Tom Holland Spider-Man films have been more than a little eager to see how this twist plays out in the next film — if there will even be one. First Sony and Marvel (owned by Disney) called it quits in a very angry divorce-like way. Then we heard that Kevin Feige will be producing two more films with Spidey in them, one group ‘Avengers’-style and one solo film. There has even been speculation that Marvel already has plan for writing Spider-Man out of the MCU altogether. Unfortunately, I don’t have any answers for you here.
