SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Director Shares A Look At Yearbook Photos Of The Sequel's Cast

SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Director Shares A Look At Yearbook Photos Of The Sequel's Cast

With Spider-Man: Far From Home now in theaters, director Jon Watts has shared a look at yearbook photos for characters like Peter Parker (Tom Holland), MJ (Zendaya), and Ned (Jacob Batalon). Check it out!

Spider-Man: Far From Home received a positive response from critics and it seems as if fans are also embracing the latest Marvel Studios/Sony Pictures movie. That's no great surprise given how spectacular it is, and now director Jon Watts has shared some yearbook photos of the cast. 

As you can see, MJ really doesn't look impressed to be there, while Flash Thompson has paid for his own glamour shot (which makes sense when he's clearly the rich kid in school). Peter Parker looks typically awkward and Ned just looks happy to be there.

The high school students head overseas together in Spider-Man: Far From Home on a field trip that gets interrupted by the Elementals and Mysterio.

Hopefully see more content like this from the movie over the coming weeks now that it's in theaters. 

Check out the photos below, along with our interview with Watts about the sequel!

Far From Home
's best Easter Eggs (spoilers follow).

Hydro-Man

Hydro-Man

After the attack from that water Elemental in Venice, Flash Thompson reveals that Buzzfeed is reporting that the monster was actually a man called Morris Bench who gained his powers after being exposed to some sort of experimental underwater generator.

We know that's not the case (it's an illusion created by Mysterio), but this pretty much confirms that the real Hydro-Man is out there somewhere and a villain we could very well see the wall-crawler clash with somewhere down the line.
 

Iron Man And Black Panther Documentaries

Wakanda

During the plane trip from New York to Venice, Peter flicks through some of the films that are on offer and they include Finding Wakanda, a documentary about the country which presumably delves into the larger role Black Panther's nation has now taken in world affairs. 

There's also a Tony Stark documentary titled Heart of Iron (a possible Ironheart tease?) that celebrates Iron Man's life. Finally, there's a random film named Nova, and while that has nothing to do with the hero of the same name, it's hard not to wonder whether Marvel Studios is finally hinting at the beloved character's long overdue big screen debut.
 

Kree On Earth

MinnEvra

During a blink and you'll miss it exchange between Nick Fury and Maria Hill, we learn that there's a Kree sleeper cell on Earth. While there's a slim chance that this is an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. reference, it's hard not to wonder if this is actually a tease that the Kree/Skrull War could come to the MCU's version of Earth, or even a hint that Captain Marvel didn't fully deal with the villainous race.
 

Captain America

Cap313

During the "In Memoriam" video which plays during the opening few minutes of the movie, we learn that the world is under the impression that Captain America died alongside Black Widow and Iron Man. People are presumably failing to mourn them the same way they did Tony Stark because of what happened with the Sokovia Accords, but this is still a very interesting reveal.

Another Captain America nod comes when Happy Hogan attempts to throw an antique shield at one of Mysterio's drones only to fail horribly and ask himself how Cap managed it so easily. Yet another Cap reference comes our way when Spidey wields a sign and the remains of a drone while on London Bridge similar to the way Steve used them both in Avengers: Endgame.
 

Iron Man Rises From The Grave

 
Iron-Man1213

Spider-Man: Far From Home includes an incredible sequence in which Mysterio creates an illusion that takes Peter Parker on quite the ride and even puts him back in that homemade costume from Spider-Man: Homecoming (which means the sequel includes each and every one of the suits the wall-crawler has worn in the MCU). 

During that illusion, Spidey lands in front of a grave and is horrified when Iron Man's corpse drags itself up from beneath the ground. His skeleton can be seen beneath the shattered remains of his helmet, and this haunting piece of imagery is one that's bound to stick with fans for quite some time. 
 

B.A.R.F.

BARF

In Captain America: Civil War, Tony Stark unveiled his B.A.R.F. technology which he had been using as therapy of sorts to reconnect with his long-dead parents. Well, it turns out that Quentin Beck is the man who really created that tech, and he was livid when he learned how Iron Man had repurposed it.

He was fired for being "unhinged" and it's that which led to Beck deciding to try to get revenge on Iron Man following his demise in Avengers: Endgame by taking control of Tony's creations for his own nefarious means. 
 

Power Rangers Or Voltron?

Megazord

During the final battle with Mysterio, the villain creates an Elemental which essentially combines all of them into one massive monster. Peter's teacher Mr. Dell points out that it's akin to Power Rangers (which is obviously a reference to Megazord). 

However, Mr. Harrington is quick to correct him by saying it's actually a lot more like Voltron! Who is right? Well, that's down to the audience to decide, but I'm leaning towards Mr. Dell here. 
 

Not A Star Wars Reference

Ned22

When Nick Fury gives Peter Parker E.D.I.T.H. (which stands for "Even Dead I'm The Hero"), he tells the wall-crawler that Iron Man told him to say, "uneasy lies the head that wears a crown," a quote from Shakespeare's Henry IV. It's basically his way of telling Peter that taking his place won't be easy.

However, Tony pointed out to Fury that Spider-Man more than likely wouldn't understand that because it wasn't a Star Wars reference (as we know, Peter is quite the Star Wars fan in the MCU).
 

Doctor Strange

Dr-Strange-1

Nick Fury and Maria Hill are the only heroes from the MCU to appear in Spider-Man: Far From Home, but a number of others are still referenced. Aunt May mistakes Mysterio (who gets his name thanks to Peter and his friends) and asks if that was Mr. Strange. Later, Peter asks Fury why he couldn't enlist the Sorcerer Supreme and is told by Hill that he wasn't available. 

Thor, meanwhile, is said to be off world, while the former S.H.I.E.L.D. Director warns the wall-crawler not to "evoke" Captain Marvel's name when he asks why she can't stop the Elementals. 
 

AC/DC

Tony-Stark

It's been seven years since we've heard AC/DC in the MCU, and Happy turns on Tony's favourite band while Peter is making his new Upgraded suit. It's clear that the wall-crawler reminds him of his former boss and it's both a touching moment and passing of the torch (of sorts).

However, seeing as Spidey is so young, he mistakes AC/DC for Led Zeppelin. Unforgivable, right?
 

Fake News

Beck

Spider-Man: Far From Home uses the idea of "fake news" in some very interesting ways. J. Jonah Jameson is clearly inspired by Alex Jones, while Quentin Beck's entire plan revolves around knowing that people will believe anything these days. He uses that to his advantage several times, including right at the end of the movie when he tricks the world into thinking he was a superhero. 
 

Brad Davis

Peter

The sequel delves into the aftermath of Thanos' attack on Earth (albeit briefly), and we learn that Brad Davis was one of the kids who wasn't "blipped." That means when Peter, Ned, and MJ return to school, the kid they knew is now their age and Brad quickly starts competing with Peter for MJ's affections.

This lines up with the comics where Brad was a football player who dated Mary Jane Watson for a time and was something of a rival to Peter Parker as a result. 
 

A Familiar Face From Iron Man

Stane

When Mysterio reveals his true colours, we learn that a number of disgruntled Stark Industries employees have aligned themselves with him. That includes William, played by Peter Billingsley. 

Struggling to remember who that is? Well, he's the scientist from Iron Man who was berated by Obidiah Stane for being unable to shrink down that arc reactor technology. William is also the one who presumably leaks that video manipulated by Beck to make it look like Spider-Man is a villain. 
 

Flash Thompson's Neglectful Parents

Flash

Throughout the movie, we learn that Flash Thompson doesn't have the greatest relationship with his parents and they don't even bother to pick him up from the airport. There's no real pay off to this, but it goes some way to explaining why the bully is the way he is, and actually lines up with the source material where Flash's dad was an abusive creep who treated his son terribly. 
 

What Comes Next

928329

We're not delving into the post-credits scenes in this post (you can find details on those by clicking here), but right as the movie is about to end, there's a billboard in the background that reads, "1—>2—>3—>? And we can’t wait to show you what comes next!"

The movie ends on a very sudden note as Peter swings through Manhattan with MJ, and the mid-credits scene picks up right where that left off, so common sense says this was Marvel Studios' cheeky way of telling fans to stay tuned for that shocking moment.
