Two Spider-Man: Far From Home deleted scenes offer fans a more emotional ending to the film. Directed by Jon Watts, the movie is the second standalone adventure for Tom Holland's web-slinging hero and is the last of Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment's collaborative project involving the character. Known for its shocking end-credit scenes, newly emerged never-before-seen sequences end the flick on a poignant note.
Set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Far From Home tackled the real-world ramifications of Thanos' attack. For Peter, things were extra difficult as he also grappled with the death of his mentor, Tony Stark aka. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). Hoping for a break, he went on a school trip to Europe. Unfortunately, duty called as he was recruited by Nick Fury (Sam Jackson) and partnered up with Quentin Beck aka. Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) who eventually turned out to be a villain. By the end of the movie, Peter is in a better place, personally and professionally (as a superhero) as he returned back home, but there are a couple of bits and pieces of the ending left out of the theatrical cut that are now released.
In light of the home entertainment release of Far From Home, Yahoo! rolls out a couple of deleted scenes from the Watts-directed film. The first one reveals a sweet moment between Peter and MJ, sleeping on each other's shoulders on their flight back to New York following their European ordeal. It then cuts to Peter coming out of the airport to meet a waiting Aunt May (Marisa Tomei). Just before getting in their car, the young hero shows off Tony's glasses, asking May how he looks, to which she optimistically replies: "I think you're gonna grow into them." Watch the video below:
While the Peter and MJ moment would've been great to see on the big screen, the main takeaway here is May's comment regarding Peter donning Tony's E.D.I.T.H.-equipped specs. The idea of Spider-Man taking on a leadership role in the MCU had long been set up with Iron Man personally taking him in and mentoring him. Until Far From Home, Peter was poised to play a pivotal role in the franchise as it transitions to a new phase. May's line subtly reinforces that. However, with the falling out between Disney/Marvel and Sony taking place, resulting in Spider-Man getting pulled out from the MCU and added to the budding franchise from the latter studio, that concept is no longer at play.
At this point, there's no word yet on how exactly the break up will play out on the big screen. Holland has been vocal about his trust that Spider-Man's future is safe with Sony, albeit understandably disappointed about the news of him leaving the MCU. More than the ending, what makes this whole split tricky to make sense of in the subsequent films are the events of the two post-credit scenes - although there might be a way to work around it, particularly thanks to the Spider-Man: Far From Home cliffhanger in the mid-credits scene. Fans will just have to wait and see how everything plays out after Spider-Man: Far From Home, but it seems like Peter won't have the time to grow into Tony's glasses considering all these behind-the-scenes happenings.
