In-Universe MCU Movies Revealed In Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man Far From Home Plane Movies

Warning: Major SPOILERS for Spider-Man: Far From Home ahead.

Spider-Man: Far From Home features a string of in-universe films inspired by the major events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Jon Watts-directed flick closes out Marvel Studios' year and is the final installment of The Infinity Saga. Tackling the events of Avengers: Endgame, it puts the focus on Peter Parker (Tom Holland) as he deals with the life-changing experiences brought about by The Blip, including the death of his mentor Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).

With that, he goes on a much-needed trip to Europe alongside the rest of his schoolmates. But the vacation started on the wrong foot after his plan to sit beside MJ (Zendaya) during the flight backfired, resulting in him sitting with the chatty Mr. Harrington (Martin Starr). Annoyed at the circumstance, Peter checks the plane's in-flight entertainment options where he finds a string of in-universe movies about some of the most recent events in the MCU. From Thanos' deadly snap that is now called "The Blip" to a documentary about Iron Man's life, here are all the in-universe movies revealed in Far From Home.

First on the list of available films for the in-flight entertainment is one called The Snap. The movie's poster is a shadow of the Infinity Gauntlet with all the Infinity Stones glowing. Aside from Thanos' initial click of fingers that wiped out half of the universe's population, this documentary might also tackle the two subsequent ones - Hulk's which brought back all who diminished five years ago, and Stark's which effectively got rid of Thanos and his minions.

Next on the list is Finding Wakanda which delves deeper into the technologically advanced African nation. By the end of Black Panther, King T’Challa formally came clean about the truth regarding their nation in from the United Nations Assembly, which would've put them under the spotlight. Based on this film's poster, it seems like the images and even videos from the country are featured in the movie, which could be an indication Wakanda is fully opening up to the rest of the world.

The third film option is Hunting Hydra and is more likely inspired by the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier where it was revealed that S.H.I.E.L.D. had been infiltrated by covert Hydra agents for years. That is, until Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and his allies cracked them all down, resulting to the disbandment of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Finally, Nova: Eistein Rosen Bridges with Dr. Erik Selvig, which marks Selvig's (Stellan Starksgard) return. The astro-physicist friend of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) was dusted off by Thanos' decimation, and in this feature, he may be discussing the possible ramifications of the snap using science. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) actually mentioned Eistein Rosen Bridges when describing the Devil's Anus in Thor: Ragnarok. Obviously, "Nova" is another buzzword in this film's title considering the expected introduction of the Marvel's Nova in the MCU.

After the landing page of the in-flight entertainment, Peter swipes to another page which reveals the film Heart of Iron: The Tony Stark Story. As explained in the movie's description, it's "a feature-length documentary that chronicles the life and legacy left behind by the world's greatest hero, Tony Stark," and it runs for 114 minutes.

These fake films from Spider-Man: Far From Home are an indication of how the rest of world perceives what goes on in the MCU as a whole. Some of them tackle the biggest moments in the franchise thus far, like The Snap and Heart of Iron: The Tony Stark Story, but the other three could potentially lay plot seeds that could factor into Spider-Man 3 or the franchise moving forward.
