F.O.S (Friends of Spider-Man) Unite! Welcome to the post-Avengers Endgame world. After the last two very dramatic Avengers movies, Spider-Man saves the day by giving us an easy, breezy, light, and fun summer popcorn movie. Spider-Man: Far From Home is the final movie in the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and the sequel to the 2017 Spider-Man: Homecoming. You really need to have seen Spider-Man: Homecoming and the last two Avengers movies to truly understand the depth of what’s happening with some of the characters and the timeline. You especially need to be familiar with Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame because there is talk of the “blip” and what happened after “the snap.”
