Spider-Man may have died in Avengers: Infinity War but that's not stopping him from getting a sequel. Spider-Man: Far From Home debuted new footage earlier this week and it didn't address the Thanos in the room. Fans are trying to figure out how the sequel connects to Avengers: Endgame, and one fan believes they may have cracked the case. The fan posted that the events of Infinity War will be erased, meaning that Spidey never got off the school bus.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said that Far From Home takes place right after Avengers: Endgame. The Avengers sequel is wrapped in secrecy and people can only speculate as to how the Avengers defeat Thanos and reverse his universe-wiping snap. One popular theory is that the events of Infinity War -- and everyone's memory of it -- will be erased, and one fan draws a line to Far From Home.
Posting to Reddit, one fan believes that Far From Home does technically take place after Endgame, but no one will remember it ever happened. So, Spider-Man will have never gone to save a wizard, fight aliens, or get the Iron Spider suit, which explains why he doesn't use it in Far From Home. Peter just continues his school trip and is free to go to Europe.
It's as possible as anything right now, but I think an ending like that for Endgame would be pretty divisive. If no one remembers those Avengers movies, then what was the point of them? The fan theorist argues that this actually works in favor of Endgame.
I don't think I'd be very happy with a time travel ending like that, but finales are usually divisive. We'll have to reserve our judgment until Avengers: Endgame arrives on April 26, 2019. To learn more about the movie, here's everything we know so far.
