This is a bold statement, but Spider-Man: Far From Home features the best post-credit scenes to date, including one that fooled us all. Where is [spoiler]?
The first post-credit scene is a game-changer for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Spider-Man in particular. However, let’s chat about the second post-credit scene, featuring Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury. However, before we discuss details, please note there are significant spoilers ahead if you have not watched Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Seriously, if you’ve yet to watch Far From Home, massive spoilers that can ruin the movie for you are ahead. Proceed at your own risk!
Okay, here we go! The scene begins with Nick Fury and Maria Hill driving after the whole Mysterio and Spider-Man ordeal. Suddenly, Hill and Fury begin to morph and are revealed to be Skrulls. Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) has actually been Nick the entire time, working with his wife, who took on Hill’s identity.
Well, what do you know! That was unexpected, to say the least. I did not see it coming, and no one else in my theater did, either, as gasps and applause filled the air.
Talos calls Nick Fury to tell him the job went well, but also asks the director (former director, now) of SHIELD when he will return. Fury doesn’t answer. Instead he stands up from a beach chair he was relaxing in and walks off.
Initially, it appeared Fury was enjoying some time on vacation at the beach, but he’s actually somewhere in space and the ship is full of other Skrulls. He does appear to be on vacation, though, and doesn’t seem to want or have any interested in heading back to work any time soon.
So, where exactly is Nick Fury? Well, the Skrulls last traveled with Captain Marvel, so he probably reunited with his old friend and joined whatever mission the Skrulls and Carol are on. Of course, he’s likely taking a few, very well-deserved, days off.
Black Widow and Iron Man died in Endgame, but in Far From Home Steve Rogers’ death (likely from old age) was confirmed in a distasteful slideshow at Peter Parker’s school. Could Nick Fury also be saying goodbye to his days in the MCU? Is Fury’s vacation permanent?
Spider-Man: Far From Home is in theaters July 2. If you’ve seen the movie already, what did you think about the Nick Fury reveal? Is he done with SHIELD and the Avengers or do you think he will return?
