Avengers Killed In ‘Infinity War’ Confirmed For ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’

Marvel

While Avengers: Infinity War is easily (by a million miles) the best Marvel Cinematic Universe film to date, I (along with many other professional and semi-professionals) had a little bit of an issue with it’s (highly controversial and memeable) ending.

While I was on board with the idea of killing off major heroes, it’s who Marvel Studios decided to kill off that ultimately made the ending feel cheap.

Among those that vanished into thin air were Black Panther, Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, and Star-Lord, and while those deaths may sound dramatic on paper, careful inspection proves otherwise.

When you consider the fact that Black Panther and Spider-Man were just introduced into the MCU within the last year and that all of these heroes have sequels in the works, it makes the ending of Infinity War seem like a mere plot device.

Anyway, I digress — the POINT of this article is despite the fact that they vanished in the post-credits scene of Infinity War, Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hall have both been confirmed for next year’s Spider-Man: Far From Home.

via Vulture:

Vulture can confirm that Jackson will also star in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which means Fury will share scenes with Tom Holland’s web-slinger for the first time. That sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming comes out July 5, 2019, roughly two months after the still-untitled fourth Avengers film will presumably de-dust both Nick Fury and Peter Parker.

What’s more, we can confirm that Cobie Smulders will be joining Jackson in Spider-Man: Far From Home, where she’ll reprise her character Maria Hill, Fury’s frequent comrade-in-arms.

Spider-Man: Far From Home — which is due out on July 5, 2019 — will also star Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, and Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio. It is the third film of Marvel’s 2019 slate, following the March release of Captain Marvel and the still-untitled (End Game, anyone?) Avengers 4 in May.
