Spider-Man: Far From Home wrapped up Phase Three of the MCU. And until the new deal was made with Sony and Marvel, it looked like that blockbuster might have been Tom Holland's final appearance in the shared universe. Luckily Spider-Man 3 will be co-produced by Marvel, allowing Far From Home's events to continue being fleshed out. This includes the movie's surprise ending, which saw J.K. Simmons reprise his role as J. Jonah Jameson, revealing Spider-Man's true identity to the world in the process.
This new version of The Daily Bugle is a website, which has plenty of conspiracy theories about heroes like Spider-Man. Marvel fans can check out the site online, although one story had the potential to disrupt the canon of the MCU, especially related to The Blip. The story was a testimonial about an actor who blipped back to life mid-air, after being dusted in the middle of shooting a movie. But that was in stark juxtaposition to Kevin Feige's earlier comments about how Hulk's snap in Avengers: Endgame worked.
This got the fan riled up on the internet, although now the Daily Bugle's website has been updated, seemingly to address this issue with the MCU canon. An update was attached to the Blip-related testimonial, reading:
Update: After further investigation it’s been discovered that Jack Triconi never blipped away at all and was faking his situation as a way to claim insurance money. His name was posted on the local docket this week after being arrested for insurance fraud and sentenced to months in prison.
Man, talk about great online marketing. It looks like the site was updated after the Daily Bugle article put into question Kevin Feige's comments about The Blip. The timeline is restored, and the conflict was resolved in a simple yet affective way.
This change to the Daily Bugle is sure to be a relief to the hardcore Marvel fans out there, who were disappointed with the error on the faux news site. While the events of Avengers: Endgame left moviegoers with plenty of questions, Spider-Man: Far From Home helped explain how life went on after the five year time jump and de-dusting of half the population. And most lingering queries have been addressed by the Marvel higher ups like Kevin Feige.
If people were in an airplane when they were dusted, they didn't return at 35,000 feet. They didn't fall to their deaths because Smart Hulk is smart, and when he snapped... You can wish for whatever you want and you can wish for everyone to come back safely. Done.
That seemed to put an end to the discussion, which is why The Daily Bugle's website threw fans for a loop. Luckily, the situation has been addressed, to hilarious results.
It should be fascinating to see how the events of Infinity War and Endgame continue to influence the MCU moving forward. Thanos' assault on the galaxy had grave consequences, and changed every character in the MCU in the process. Things will only get crazier for Peter Parker, as Mysterio revealed that he was Spider-Man, which should change his life completely.
