Spider-Man: Far From Home is the end of Marvel’s Infinity Saga


Marvel confirmed that Spider-Man: Far From Home will officially close the long-running story that dominated nearly two dozen films.

Avengers: Endgame only hit theaters 60 days ago, but its first fallout will transpire in July’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, which hits theaters on Tuesday, July 2. It is the final film of Phase 3, before the Marvel Cinematic Universe enters its yet-to-be-announced Phase 4 slate of movies.

Endgame seemed to have closed the MCU’s long-running Infinity Saga. The film brought closure to Thanos’ escapades and the hunt the Avengers went on to end his wrath.

However, that was not the end of the Infinity Saga. Instead, Far From Home closes it, basically as the end to Phase 3, according to ComicBook.com.

"“We’ve been working for many years on Infinity War and Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Those were the films that were culminating the entire Infinity Saga of the MCU. And as we were working on Endgame we realized that the true end of the entire Infinity Saga, the final film of Phase 3, had to be Spider-Man: Far From Home, because—spoiler—we lose Tony Stark at the end of Endgame… The relationship between Peter Parker and Tony Stark is so special…”"

It seems the ties to this closing the Infinity Saga are Peter and Tony Stark’s relationship, which closed with the events of Endgame. Now, Marvel’s favorite web-slinger must live without his mentor and become one of the Avenger’s top faces, not only with Far From Home but the eventual close to this trilogy and any film that succeeds it.

This can be a nice bow on the somber fallout of Stark’s death, which is a reasonable point for the MCU to address in this follow-up film; perhaps movies afterward, but Marvel Studios does not have another movie set for 2019. Comic-Con in July could change that or at least elaborate on what is next.

Spider-Man: Far From Home will offer closure to 11 years of films and potentially open the door to the next Infinity Saga-esque story, whatever it may be for this billion-dollar franchise.
