6. SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Director Jon Watts And Kevin Feige Talk In Detail About Mysterio - SPOILERS | Comic Book Movie

"How exciting for us to actually do Mysterio," he says. "The fishbowl illusionist who everybody rolls their eyes at in the comics; the green smoke trails, we were like, 'We gotta do that. We gotta swirl them around.' Which we really wanted to do, and showcase his illusion powers in a way that it kind of was in the comics always too: science-based, not necessarily magic."

8. Spider-Man: Far From Home Makes Black Widow’s Endgame Death Worse | Screenrant

All in all, there's something distinctly uncomfortable about the way Marvel has been treating Black Widow. It's worth remembering that all this is in the context of a character who's been critically underused and underdeveloped in the first three phases of the MCU, and who was killed unexpectedly and without major impact in Avengers: Endgame; the problem has even been visible with tie-in merchandise, with an Avengers: Age of Ultron action figure famously substituting Black Widow for Captain America on a bike. Now that very death is being treated as something of an aside, as though it doesn't really matter to the MCU at all, it's hard not to conclude that Black Widow deserves better.

10. SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Director Jon Watts Reveals How Long Nick Fury Has Been [SPOILER] | Comic Book Movie

"First of all, to clarify the timeline, that's real Nick Fury at Tony's funeral at the end of [Avengers: Endgame]," Watts confirms. "So it's not like he's been a Skrull forever or like, it's not like he's been a Skrull since Captain Marvel. We were going to have him eat diagonal toast cut diagonally," he added referencing Captain Marvel. "You know that one? That would've given it away."
