‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Early Reactions Say Film Delivers Humor and Closure After ‘Endgame’

Sequel is “the coda we needed after ‘Endgame,’ a glimpse of how the world looks now that the dust has settled,” one critic writes

Get me reactions on Spider-Man! The early takes on “Spider-Man: Far From Home” — the follow-up to “Spider-Man: Homecoming” — say that the film delivers the necessary amount of humor, charm, romance and even closure following the events of “Avengers: Endgame.”

“#SpiderManFarFromHome is the coda we needed after ‘Endgame,’ a glimpse of how the world looks now that the dust has settled,” Mashable’s Angie Han says on Twitter. “Could maybe have gone a bit harder on P’s emotional arc, but bursting with warmth and humor and awkward teen romance. Also: Jake G = perfect casting.”

“#Spiderman #FarFromHome is SUCH a good movie! Jake Gyllenhaal suits up & completely embraces his role in its entirety & he’s clearly having a blast,” writer Maude Garrett tweeted. “This is such a refreshing film after the heaviness of #EndGame. The post-credit scenes are a MUST WATCH & will blow your dang mind!”

Those who also left “Endgame” with questions about the nature of how the MCU works in a world that has now established alternate universes can also rest assured that the filmmakers will answer everything. Specifically is the question of Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio, who the trailers have made out to be a hero from an alternate timeline, though we suspect he may actually be the villain and trickster we know and love from the comics.

“I’m a huge Mysterio fan and Gyllenhaal nails him,” Uproxx’s Mike Ryan said in a tweet. “Also the movie is very clever (and funny) how it handles the fallout post ‘Endgame’ in explaining how this world works now.”

“The expansion of the MCU is so unexpected,” another writer said in a tweet. “And I can’t stress this enough: STAY. ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE CREDITS. NOT ONE, BUT TWO.”

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” stars Tom Holland, Zendaya and Gyllenhaal along with Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Jon Watts directed, and the film opens from Sony on July 2.
