The mid-credit scene at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home has changed the wall-crawler in the MCU and nothing will be the same for both Spider-Man and Peter Parker.
SPOILERS IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME
In the mid-credit scene, Peter is set to have his first date with MJ and they decide to go for a swing through the streets of New York. As interesting and fun as the moment looks on paper, it’s a different experience for MJ when they finally take to the sky.
When the pair finally land back, MJ is adamant that they never do that again and when Peter decides to leave, there is an announcement on the giant screens in Times Square. Footage from the London attack has been leaked to the Daily Bugle and J Jonah Jameson (played by the one and only JK Simmons) reveals that not only does the new footage frame Spider-Man for the murder of Mysterio, but also reveals that Spider-Man is Peter Parker.
With Spider-Man positioned as an Avenger and everyone looking to him as the next Iron Man, being outed and framed for murder will change everything about the character and his supporting cast going forward. Far From Home director Jon Watts hints that the move was scene as a play on the Tony Stark/Iron Man reveal, but with someone taking that choice away from Peter.
“Nothing ever goes right for Peter Parker. He just has the worst luck, so we thought that that would be the right way to end it and open up a whole new world of storytelling.” he says in an interview with ComicBookMovie.com.
The reveal opens up a score of storytelling ideas for Watts and company going forward with Peter potentially on the run, trying to prove his innocence and dealing with the repercussions the reveal will have on his personal life. It will be interesting to see which direction they take this character and the story going forward.
