There are plenty of twists in Spider-Man: Far From Home, and with everything going on, there were bound to be a few questions that got tangled up in the web of illusion. From cliffhangers to dangling plot threads to reveals with massive implications for the future of the MCU, here are the biggest unanswered questions in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Spoilers ahead!
The after-credits scene in Spider-Man: Far From Home drops several bombs in quick succession and introduces multiple questions about the future of the MCU. The scene sees Nick Fury and Maria Hill driving, when - surprise - they turn into Skrulls. Well, technically, the Skrulls who were masquerading as Fury and Hill reveal their true forms. It turns out that for the entire movie, the Skrulls Soren and Talos were covering for the former S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.
Talos then calls someone to report on everything that just went down in Europe, and we see that he's talking to none other than Nick Fury himself, who's on some sort of spaceship or high-tech base, manned by Skrulls.
But where is he? Well, while the film doesn't give any concrete answers, there's one possibility that would open up a whole new world.
Now that Far From Home has officially closed the door on MCU Phase Three, we're on the cusp of a future where the MCU gets a lot bigger and more cosmic. A bigger universe means bigger threats, and what's poor little planet Earth to do in the face of intergalactic alien invaders?
Easy: Build a big space station to protect the world from extraterrestrial threats. Fortunately, someone's already done that: S.W.O.R.D., or the Sentient World Observation and Response Department, which debuted in Astonishing X-Men in 2004 and went on to appear in issues of Captain Marvel and Secret Invasion, to name a few comic titles. It's basically S.H.I.E.L.D. in space, and it operated as a subdivision of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Is that where Nick Fury was? There's nothing in the film to confirm it, but if the post-credits scene of Far From Home did in fact introduce S.W.O.R.D., it's kind of a big deal. See, since it debuted in an X-Men comic, the film rights to the agency have long been mired in the whole Fox/Marvel legal rights struggle. Now that Disney's acquisition of Fox has gone through, however, that years-long question of who owns what is a moot point, and the introduction of S.W.O.R.D. may just mark one of the first steps in bringing parts of these different universes together.
