You better savor all the fun you can out of Spider-Man: Far From Home, because it’ll be the last MCU film for the year, with 2020 having only two releases. As the epilogue of the Infinity Saga, the movie saw widespread hype surrounding it.
With fans wanting to see what became of the world after Hulk brought half of all life back in Avengers: Endgame, Far From Home carried extra intrigue. In case you haven’t seen the film yet, we recommend proceeding with caution. Regardless, the following 10 memes best represent the feelings of the fanbase for the film on the internet.
10 Tobey's Short-lived Happiness
Despite the actor not having been Spider-Man for twelve years, Tobey Maguire is still seen as the quintessential Spider-Man by fans. Every new Spider-Man film announcement comes with a free dose of Tobey memes, where people imagine his reaction.
With Spider-Man 4 all but an impossibility, the idea is that at least Tobey would find consolation if the Spider-Man film series also dies; however, if he was indeed excited about Spider-Man’s death in Avengers: Infinity War, then he’d have been distraught to find out that the character’s survival was a 100% guarantee, since Spider-Man: Far From Home was supposed to be set after Avengers: Endgame’s events.
9 Uncanny Resemblance!
Those who haven’t seen Spider-Man: Far From Home yet will have no clue what the heck it means to see Syndrome from The Incredibles next to Mysterio. If you’ve seen the movie, then you know that Mysterio was basically a live-action version of Syndrome.
The illusion master conjured up all the Elementals to come across as Mr. Bigshot in front of the whole world, which was the entire angle of Syndrome in The Incredibles. On top of that, Mysterio felt jilted by his boss in Iron Man; Syndrome had felt the same for Mr. Incredible. Were we watching The Incredibles 3 all this time?
8 Far From Hope
People are going to be holding out hope for Iron Man’s resurrection for years to come, or maybe for all the time Robert Downey Jr is still alive, and Spider-Man: Far From Home was the most obvious choice of film where we could’ve seen a return of Tony Stark.
As soon as fans had seen Avengers: Endgame, speculation was rife that Iron Man would be making an appearance in Spidey’s next adventure. Those who’ve seen the latest film know that’s not sadly the case, but when the trailer had dropped, there was more interest in seeing Iron Man than Spider-Man!
7 Judgey Petey
This meme has nothing to do with anything other than to satisfy the literal millions of Spider-Man fangirls. Tom Holland’s Spider-Man can boast about being miles ahead of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Men in the fangirl department. There’s not one move this version of Peter Parker will make that won’t have thousands of posts about it.
Case in point are these two pictures from a scene in the film’s trailer, where all Peter Parker does is shift his eyes; and now here we are talking about it. In the context of these films, though, maybe Peter is silently judging the people around - at least Flash is one of them, that’s for sure.
6 Cool For Once
Those of you all who are too young to have seen Mysterio in Spider-Man: The Animated Series or the dozens of Spider-Man games that were out for the PS consoles in the early-2000s, won’t know that Mysterio was generally seen as a kind of lame villain.
It’s easy to see why: the guy had a fishbowl on his head. Add to that, the Elementals really were kind of lame when we saw them in the first trailer, making Mysterio the saving grace of this preview. His campiness wasn’t there either, which was something the other versions of Mysterio were famous for.
5 Spidey's Out
Unlike Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Men, Tom Holland’s version definitely looks like a boy who would be a scaredy cat in general. Odds are he’s scared of horror films, which would mean Annabelle Comes Home is one movie he certainly wants no part of.
As it happens, both Spider-Man: Far From Home and the new Annabelle movie are in cinemas at the same time. This meme suggests the reason Spider-Man went to Europe was because he wanted didn't want to remotely close to the US as long as Annabelle was there. To be fair, the latest Annabelle film wasn’t that great, so Spidey did dodge a bullet regardless.
4 Tony Ain't Interested
It would’ve been nice to have seen Tony return for this film, seeing as his loss is still fresh in the minds of fans. A simple flashback or a holographic image would’ve done wonders for fans as even a small appearance from the character is going to have us screaming in excitement now.
But that was not to be, and you might think Robert Downey Jr himself might be against the idea. That’s probably not true, but fans have overactive imaginations, and the creator of this meme feels that the actor thought he was better off not being in Far From Home.
3 Jules Takes Over
Nick Fury’s role in this film was a disappointment; he at least had something to do in Captain Marvel, but here all he did was intimidate Peter Parker every few scenes, with basically no impact to the plot either. This is why it feels as if it was less Nick Fury and more Jules from Pulp Fiction we saw here.
In case you don’t know, the Jules character’s most famous dialogue is where he threatens a man he’s about to kill to “Say What Again!” as part of his intimidation technique. Had Fury said the same words to Peter Parker, we wouldn’t have been able to tell which character Samuel L. Jackson was supposed to be playing.
2 What Would Uncle Ben Think?
Even before the film came out, it was revealed in trailers that Happy Hogan and May Parker would have a romance here. Fans are still hoping for some reference to Uncle Ben in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with no luck, and Marvel instead figured we’d like to see Aunt May with some other guy.
The fanbase old enough to remember all of the Spider-Man media before the MCU films were aghast at this news, leading to this meme bringing out the original live-action Aunt May. And you know what? We kind of agree with Aunt May here; shame on you for denying us a glimpse of Uncle Ben, Marvel!
1 Sensing A Pattern Here
If Marvel is planning on going by a trend with the titles of the Spider-Man movies, then the third part in the series might as well be named what you see in this meme. The previous Spider-Man films also had a trend, where they had the corresponding number in the titles; the MCU ones might look to move the home completely out of Spider-Man by the end.
So far, we’ve only seen trilogies in this universe (unless Thor 4 really might be on the cards), which would make Spider-Man Homecoming 3 (what else do we call it for now?) the last film of the series. If that were to happen, Peter might just move out and go out in the world on his own.
