Who destroyed the entire Thanos’s army! Revealed
Marvel keeps everything very close to the vest, but they told us what we needed to know in terms of the main plot points. We knew we were coming off an ending that would have huge repercussions for Peter. And as much as the mandate was, ‘Hey, we’re coming off a very serious, emotionally draining one-two punch of Infinity War and Endgame, let’s try to keep this fun,’ we also couldn’t deny that Peter had just lost his mentor and surrogate father and there would be a lot of questions about what kind of hero he’s going to be in this new landscape.”
Furthermore, Far From Home editors Dan Lebental and Leigh Folsom Boyd saw Endgame late in the process of making Spider-Man 2, which led Boyd to believe initially that everyone had died.
“They did show us Endgame early, but way into the process on this film,” Lebental revealed to The Hollywood Reporter in late June, forcing the Far From Home production team to make several adjustments.
Walking out of Far From Home, I couldn’t help but feel disappointed about the overall plot of the film, and particularly the fact that it does a poor job of fully addressing the implications of Endgame.
The first major issue I have with Far From Home is the existence of EDITH and the drones. Those drones could have played whatever small role in trying to fight Thanos’s army in Endgame. If not, there could have been a way to explain why the drones weren’t active at the time of the battle, and who took charge of developing the project without Stark. This is a huge plot hole for the MCU that deserves some retconning.
