SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME - Everything We Learned From The Spoiler-Free Social Media Reactions

Avengers: Endgame was a game-changer for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it's now up to Spider-Man: Far From Home to pick up the pieces and set the stage for whatever comes next. 

Based on the first wave of social media reactions, the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is going to be a massive hit and quite possibly even the best Spider-Man movie to date. Now, we've combed through all of the Tweets in order to bring you guys a breakdown of the spoiler-free reveals, including how many post-credits scenes you can expect! 

We also have intel on whether it really does manage to serve as an epilogue of sorts to Avengers: Endgame, and which of the movie's impressive cast members end up stealing the show.

So, to check these details out, all you guys have to do is click on the "View List" button below. 

The Ending Will Blow Your Mind

Multiple critics have said that Spider-Man: Far From Home's ending can't be missed, and with so many rumours swirling about what may or may not come next for the wall-crawler in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there's a very good chance that this is going to be a very big deal. 

I've seen the movie and can assure you that it is indeed a game-changer, a sentiment echoed throughout pretty much all of those social media reactions. Needless to say, avoiding spoilers is a must even if it won't be particularly easy after next week's premiere and the fact that the sequel is going to open in China even earlier than the rest of the world on June 28th. 

Don't Miss The Post-Credits Scenes (Yes, There Are Two)

Avengers: Endgame didn't feature a single post-credits scene, but Spider-Man: Far From Home does indeed have two of them. As you might expect, no details have been revealed about them just yet but the majority of reactions praise them as being among the best efforts yet from Marvel Studios.

It also sounds like not having them spoiled beforehand is essential, while some even go so far as to say they're unmissable which means they're probably superior to Homecoming's stingers.

The Best Version Of MJ Yet?

A lot of fans were baffled when Michelle was named "MJ" at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, and while Zendaya has set the internet on fire with her new red hair, it sounds like critics are now fully on board with this version of the character. We know from the trailers that Peter Parker is romantically interested in his classmate, and the sequel's love story elements are also widely praised.

The question is, will MJ get that red hair from the comic books in Far From Home? Well, that's not something that's answered in any of the reactions, so it seems fans will just have to wait and see.

It's Better Than Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a great Spider-Man movie, but it was a very different take on the wall-crawler as he wasn't experienced and stuck to his corner of the world in Queens.

The trailers have shown the hero swinging through Manhattan so that's certainly a good start, and while we don't have specifics from these Tweets regarding just how much the comic books are embraced here, the majority seem to agree that it's superior to the previous instalment. For what it's worth, though, a handful of people did seem to enjoy Homecoming a little bit more.

Expect Some "Bizarre" Scenes

One of the most intriguing reactions comes from a critic who says that Mysterio's involvement leads to some "bizarre" scenes in Far From Home. Given the nature of his comic book counterpart's powers, it likely won't take long for fans to theorise what this could mean, but it's hard to say for sure, especially as the trailers haven't shown much beyond him flying and firing energy blasts.

More and more clips are now being released, so perhaps more details will be revealed soon. 

It Demands Repeat Viewings

Another common theme in these reactions is that Spider-Man: Far From Home is a movie that fans should watch more than once, and even critics who don't usually get that excited about comic book adaptations seemingly can't wait to check it out again as soon as it arrives in theaters. 

That's a good sign, but it makes you wonder what it is about this movie that makes it one worth watching multiple times. Clearly, there's some really special stuff from start to finish! 

A Perfect Avengers: Endgame Epilogue

Far From Home is the first Marvel Studios movie to arrive in theaters since Avengers: Endgame, and that means there's a lot of pressure on it to answer some big questions and set the stage for whatever comes next in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Well, based on what we've seen from critics over the past 24 hours, it sounds like the sequel succeeds in that respect, addressing both some lingering theories and revealing how this world looks after that five-year time-jump following Thanos' attack. 

The Most Comic Book-y Marvel Movie Yet

Another promising sign is that critics believe Spider-Man: Far From Home is one of the most comic book-y movies to come from Marvel Studios in its 10+ year history. 

When you look at things like the Portal scene in Avengers: Endgame and Earth's Mightiest Heroes battling each other in Captain America: Civil War, that's a bold statement, but one that's said enough to make us think that the sequel is going to deliver a lot of moments fans have been waiting for. 

Jake Gyllenhaal Is A Great Mysterio

Hero or villain? Time will tell, but it sounds like Marvel Studios couldn't have found a better actor to take on the role of Quentin Beck. The actor was once up for the role of Spider-Man when it looked like Tobey Maguire was going to drop out, but it seems as if saving him for this character instead was definitely for the best in the long run.

The dynamic between Gyllenhaal and Tom Holland also sounds like a highlight, and based on everything shown in the trailers and TV spots, he could very well end up stealing the show next month.

Somehow I’m still not interested in seeing this on the big screen. And if Josh already saw, where are the spoiler articles then?
DoubleD - 6/20/2019, 4:29 AM
@MalseMarcel - Have fun sitting home no one will miss you. Your $14.00 won't be missed.

DoubleD making a party out of Spider-Man Far From Home. Going Friday with 8 friends and family members. Families and kids are EXCITED to see Spider-Man.

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Spider-Man Chant has already started around the world.

@DoubleD -
Eh, not sold on this film either so will probably not see it on the big screen - which will be a first for a live-action Spider-man film.

Homecoming did not make me feel connected to the characters and Endgame has left me feeling underwhelmed and disenfranchised.

It feels and sounds like padding for a majority of the movie until the 'twist' during the third act and the credit scenes that will probably set-up either the Fantastic Four/Oscorp and Miles.
DoubleD - 6/20/2019, 10:40 AM
@Scarilian - You won't even be missed. Bye
MarkV - 6/20/2019, 11:41 AM
@DoubleD - I am sad and emo and I don't like anything. PAY ATTENTION TO MEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
DoubleD - 6/20/2019, 2:12 PM
@MarkV - I didn't know your sad and emo. Must suck going through life not liking anything. If you need attention seek professional help. Sounds like you need it.

Good luck.

I was already looking forward to this movie - but after those tweets, I'm hyped :)

I didn't see a single tweet that was negative about Mysterio or the Elemental's, so it looks like the MCU is continuing to give us motivated and fleshed out villains, which you have to admit is always a worry.
It sounds like the 2nd and 3rd acts are action packed, with the first acts setting the stage as expected. I'm very curious how they delve into the post snap world, is there and us and them situation ....... so many possibilities here, it'll be interesting to see how the world is working.
At the moment it's a tie for the best spidey movie between Spider-Man 2 and HoMecoming, kinda expecting positions to shift after Far From Home. Tom Holland is my favorite Peter Parker hands down - he's the right age, enthusiastic and chatty Spider-Man that I first started following in the 1970's.

For heaven's sake, Josh, WE CAN READ! These nothing articles just treat us like a bunch of kids that can't gather information from and comprehend multiple texts. We ALREADY KNOW what to expect from the movie based on the early reactions because YOU posted them yesterday and WE read them.

I just had to come on here to say this. I usually don't have a problem with everything else but these type of articles are unnecessary.
DoubleD - 6/20/2019, 4:12 AM
All GREAT NEWS !!! Spider-Man and Hulk were always my top 2 favorite Superheroes.

Spider-Man Far From Home 1.8 to 2 billion worldwide. GO BIG it's Marvel Studios :)

Make Mine Spider-Man
BeyondtheFuture - 6/20/2019, 4:17 AM
@DoubleD - There's no way in hell it makes anywhere near 2 billion. And I'm saying that as someone who will probably go see it at least twice.
DoubleD - 6/20/2019, 4:42 AM
@BeyondtheFuture - Look what Avengers Endgame did for Captain Marvel and she was before Endgame.

Avengers Endgame did 2.7 Billion Dollars Worldwide. Spider-Man Far From Home is a clear follow-up to Endgame and getting great reviews.

Spider-Man is dealing with his lost of his great friend Tony Stark and has tributes to him in the movie. The fans will show up in force opening day !!!

2 Billion Worldwide is real.
BeyondtheFuture - 6/20/2019, 4:52 AM
@DoubleD - With respect I disagree. Don't get me wrong here, I'm not rooting against it. If it's a good film it deserves all the money in the world. But you're looking at a boost similar to Iron Man 3 after - I want to say Avengers?

Before Endgame is better. Captain Marvel could be marketed as something that needed to be seen before Endgame. Endgame felt like a conclusion to the story.

Far From Home feels like an Epilogue. Sure a lot of fans are going to go see it and the GA too and I think it will do 1 billion easy but not much more than that. Although the international setting could certainly help outside the domestic box office.

Tony Stark being dead is one of the reasons it won't hit 2 billion. Iron Man marketing helped push it a little higher last time.
BeyondtheFuture - 6/20/2019, 4:56 AM
@DoubleD - On the other hand, if the rumours are true and certain characters appear that they can market after the opening weekend. Well, then we've got a ball game and all bets are off.
DoubleD - 6/20/2019, 5:21 AM
@BeyondtheFuture - AND don't forget Marvel Studios is re-releasing Avengers Endame next week with new footage. Will be another big push for Spider-Man.

Whatever Marvel Studios is doing to Endgame it will be BIG ! Marvel don't do small.

Make Mine Marvel.
BeyondtheFuture - 6/20/2019, 5:40 AM
@DoubleD - They do sometimes go small. Avengers re-released with the shawarma scene. There's nothing to suggest they are adding anything massive onto the movie.
DoubleD - 6/20/2019, 6:09 AM
@BeyondtheFuture - Avengers was never re-released. That was in there from day one. I saw Avengers day 1 and that scene was there.

Marvel did add the scene late after filming was completed but was there for opening day.

Avengers Endgame is the ONLY Marvel Studios movie to be re-released. This is a first for Marvel.
BeyondtheFuture - 6/20/2019, 6:25 AM
@DoubleD - You're right sorry that's my bad. Avengers never re-released they just had a new marketing push around I believe Independence Day? Where they encouraged people to see it again? Is that right? I'm sure there was something like that and people thought there was going to be new footage.
BeyondtheFuture - 6/20/2019, 6:26 AM
@BeyondtheFuture - Memorial Day weekend? I don't know I could be wrong.
BeyondtheFuture - 6/20/2019, 6:30 AM
@DoubleD - not a re-release but I'm sure there was a promo showing Thanos smiling after it was released that suggested they were doing something with it.
DoubleD - 6/20/2019, 6:41 AM
@BeyondtheFuture - Go back few pages story still posted on CBM.

Keven Feige, We are re-releasing Avengers Endgame with new footage not extend cut. Next week.

Comericials coming soon to push to help Spider-Man and beat Avatar :)
BeyondtheFuture - 6/20/2019, 6:46 AM
@DoubleD - I know so we'll get A Stan Lee tribute which is sweet and more or less confirmed. A deleted scene (possibly in the soul stone with Stark and his grown up kid?) Maybe Louis recapping the whole MCU and maybe MAYBE some sort of teaser for the movies after Far From Home, but I doubt it.

But it's not technically a re-release because it's never left cinemas. The fact that it's going global suggests it could be something important though and I'm not sure about it being enough to beat Avatar. But it will give Far From Home a slight push.

Anyway, I hope you're right about it being something big but we'll see :)
gulducati - 6/20/2019, 7:42 AM
@BeyondtheFuture - Still leaves "a few surprises" as Feige promises, so we'll see!
MarkV - 6/20/2019, 11:58 AM
@BeyondtheFuture - Louis recapping the MCU is brilliant.
Webheaded225 - 6/20/2019, 5:20 AM
Gotta love that Josh Wilding tweet.

*spoils a big twist of the third act of the film*

Then in the end of the tweet:

"Avoid spoilers at all costs!"

@KingCipher - I think you meant to post this, not the Seinfeld theme...
