‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ displays growing up, aftermath of ‘Endgame’

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” ended Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and earned $1 billion dollars in just its first 24 days of being in theaters. This is Spider-Man’s second leading movie for the MCU and takes place after “Avengers: Endgame.”

The movie shows Peter Parker struggling to deal with the death of his mentor/arguable father-figure, Tony Stark, who sacrificed himself to save everyone in the final Avengers movie. Peter tries to back away from the responsibilities of being Spider-Man. He simply wants to be a normal 16-year-old teenager and confess his feelings to a girl he likes. When he gets the chance to go on a school trip outside of the country, he decides to leave his suit at home so he won’t have to be Spider-Man.

One thing especially interesting about this Spider-Man movie is that it shows Peter as a teenager who makes mistakes and still acts as a hero. Sometimes in superhero movies involving kids or teenagers, they tend to just grow up and take on a serious personality. Despite everything he’s been through, Peter still has a child-like personality.

The movie also answers a lot of questions brought up by the events of “Infinity War” and “Endgame”. It shows people rebuilding their lives, reconnecting with families and students returning to school. There are memorials for Iron Man everywhere, showing that people know what happened and that Iron Man sacrificed himself so the world would be able to return to normal. It’s a nice addition to the movie, showing Tony’s redemption without explicitly stating it.

“Far From Home” was predictable, especially to people who read the comics and know background on the characters in it. However, the plot twists during the end-credit scenes definitely left me ready to see the next movie. With Sony and Disney cutting ties, there’s no telling when that will be or if it’s still going to happen. Hopefully, they’ll reach an agreement soon.

Overall, “Spider-Man: Far From Home” was a great movie and definitely worth watching, maybe even a second time for people still recovering from “Endgame”. It’s going to be interesting to watch Peter Parker develop into the hero he’s meant to be and “be the next Tony Stark.”
