Spoilers from Spider-Man: Far From Home ahead…
If you thought the Skrull-Kree war ended with the Captain Marvel movie earlier this year, think again. The second post-credits scene from Spider-Man: Far From Home probably left plenty of fans’ mouth agape. We see Nick Fury and his trusty partner Maria Hill drive off only to transform into the shapeshifting Skrull Talos and his wife Soren, who then proceed to give a mission report to the real Nick Fury. (That’s right! Under Nick Fury’s instructions, Talos and Soren disguised themselves as Fury and Hill and worked with Peter Parker.)
We also see Nick Fury aboard — what appears to be — The Peak, the Headquarters of S.W.O.R.D (think S.H.I.E.L.D but for intergalactic problems) with a bunch of Skrulls. And immediately, the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe already seems that much more exciting. In an interview with Fandango, Marvel Studios chief, Kevin Feige discussed the possibility of a Kree-Skrull war in the MCU.
“Well, that Kree-Skrull war was a big part of the comics and a big part of the Captain Marvel mythology that we wanted to build into. And there’ll be lots of questions like, what was Captain Marvel up to in the 20-plus years between when she flew away at the end of Captain Marvel to when she appears in Endgame?”
Feige also praised director Jon Watts and his ability to include subtle Easter Eggs throughout Spider-Man: Far From Home.
“That particular line, though, is one of the handful of Easter eggs sprinkled throughout the film that Maria or Fury say that give an indication that something’s different about them. Fury does things earlier in the film where he refers to the earth to Peter as ‘your world,’ instead of ‘our world.’ And when you watch it for the first time, it just goes by. But when you watch it a second time, knowing what’s coming, it’s fun to see that they’re there. And Jon Watts is very good at laying in those Easter eggs.”
Also keep in mind that in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the term ‘Kree Sleeper cells’ was mentioned, another indication that the Kree and Skrulls war could be a huge aspect of phase four of the MCU.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is currently playing in Malaysian cinemas.
