After first revealing to Peter that she'd known his secret for years in Spider-Man #257, MJ and Peter's complicated bond becomes that much stronger because both of them feel comfortable being open and honest about the dark parts of their lives they've fought to keep hidden. Far From Home shows that no incident is too small to create a major ripple effect in the fictional universe years later if the writing is clever enough.
The Spider Man franchise continues to rake in the money and has just made history again after making $185 million in its first six days and well, the studio will be proud.
For now, catch Tomei's Aunt May in Spider-Man: Far from Home in theaters today.
The world has been talking about the scene ever since Spider-Man: Far From Home came out, but CinemaBlend's own Sean O'Connell had a chance to ask Tom Holland what he thought of the scene, and of the potential opportunity to act opposite J.K. Simmons in a future movie.
Even better for Far From Home's long-term prospects is that it's not a frontloaded title. Given, that Spider-Man is ready to fill in the shoes of Iron Man.
"The villain is always important, but you always want your villain to have cool minions, if you will, or a cool team", Sommers says.
Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever. That isn't really the reason Jameson himself harasses Spider-Man, but it's an idea that's baked into the characters' dynamic, and goes on to make Peter's stint working at the newspaper even more layered with meaning. It raises a significant question: how many films did the actor Tom Holland leave on his agreement with Marvel?
The trippy visual effects that promise to stun you in the second half connect not to the first film but to "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" - a huge complement since that one was animated.
