Prior to the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, there was a rumour circulating around the internet that a post-credit scene will show Oscorp make its Marvel Cinematic Universe debut. For those who are unfamiliar, Oscorp is a multinational company owned by Norman Osborn, who would later go on to be the villainous Green Goblin. Back in Spider-Man: Homecoming, it was mentioned in passing that Oscorp had purchased the original Avengers Tower.
Well, as it turns out, that is not the case at all. The mid-credits sequence in Far From Home sees J. Jonah Jameson reveal the identity of Spider-Man to the world, while the second post-credit scene sees Nick Fury working in what appears to be The Peak. No mention of Oscrop at all. In an interview with ComicBook.com, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige and Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts discussed the Oscorp rumours. When asked regarding the owners of what was formerly known as the Avengers Tower, Feige cheekily replied:
“I didn’t see a sign there yet. I don’t think they put the sign up. I always think the speculation fuels it [blockbuster films], whether that speculation is correct, as it sometimes is, or if that speculation is wrong, as it often is. How awesome is it seeing him swing around at the end of that movie, and with the web wings glide through an under-construction version of Avengers Tower?”
While they laugh now, Watts and gang initially panicked when initial rumours suggested Spider-Man: Far From Home‘s post-credit scenes had leaked online. Watts is glad it turned out to be a false rumour on Oscorp.
“Then it ended up being this crazy Oscorp thing. I love the confidence in which that was written. like I love that because you know so much of the fun of these movies is trying to guess what’s real and what’s not and you know the idea of a completely fake rumor about this movie that’s about illusions and deceptions, like it’s really on message.”
Spider-Man: Far From Home is currently screening in Malaysian cinemas.
