Spider-Man: Far From Home - 5 Reasons Why The Twist Ending Was A Great Idea (And 5 It Wasn't)

"I am Spider-Man" doesn't quite have the same ring to it, or does it?


If you hadn't already guessed by now: SPOILERS FOR SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME.

So, that mid credits scene, huh?

Love it or hate it, the reveal found in Spider-Man: Far From Home's mid credits scene was a massive change in the character's status quo. Exposing the hero's secret identity to the public and suddenly taking the two areas of Peter Parker's life and smashing them into one messy landscape was a ballsy move on the part of the higher-ups at Marvel.

With how big a shake-up of Spidey's landscape this is, there are certainly both positive and negative consequences to making such a change. The ramifications won't likely be officially explored for at least a few years so, in the mean time, here are some reasons why the decision to make Peter's identity public was a great idea, but also why it might not have been as well...

10. Great: It Naturally Introduced J. K. Simmons' J. Jonah Jameson To The MCU

Sony Pictures

Out of all the characters from the Sam Raimi era of Spider-Man movies, none was more well-acted than J. Jonah Jameson, J. K. Simmons' performance as the character standing out for just how comics accurate it was.

So, of course, if any of the cast from those films were to return in the MCU it was going to be Simmons and, thankfully, he did.

Though, due to how Tom Holland's Peter Parker is way more focused around the character being smart and with his connections to the multibillion dollar company of Stark Industries, slotting the Daily Bugle and Jameson into the mix could have easily felt forced - yet, Jon Watts and co. somehow managed to make it natural.

Making Jameson the one to make public Mysterio's video exposing Spidey was a stroke of genius that wonderfully set-up the character's hate for the hero as well as his place in the MCU as a whole.
