The most recent trailer for Spiderman: Far From Home showed that the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame will play a massive role in its narrative. More specifically, Tony Stark and his public loved Iron Man identity will be a factor in Peter Parker’s next adventure, despite his absence from the film.
MAJOR SPOLIERS for Avengers: Endgame follow:
When ComicBook.com visited the set of Spiderman: Far From Home in London, The Endgame was months away from release. Tony Stark’s fate as a sacrificial hero was very well known to few and definitely not spoken about during any interviews ahead of the film’s release. Still, Happy Hogan actor Jon Favreau decided to describe Tony Stark’s role in Spiderman: Far From Home while skirting a spoiler ahead of time.
“I try to know as much as my character does, so I try not to know too much,” Jon Favreau said. “Happy isn’t somebody who’s innovating technology, but he’s one who has been Spider-Man’s sort of a tech hero. I think what’s been established in the MCU is that we’re really leaning into that he’s a bit genius too.”
The Stark jet will be present and the Iron-Spider suit will be worn. Also Happy Hogan will be in the movie. The presence is certainly being felt. “Then, Tony has the resources of all of Stark from when he created the suit for him,” Favreau adds. “It’s a fun balance but honestly, as I go through it I also get pages the morning of. I’m like, ‘Okay, so what’s going on here?’ I can kind of piece it together and then I look in the makeup trailer of all the head shots and the names of all the characters, and I can put together what I think the movie has been about. I could guess with you. I can’t speak for that . Also I don’t know anything.”
Of course, he must have known Tony Stark would be dead for Spiderman: Far From Home given his involvement in Avengers: Endgame and, more specifically, Tony’s funeral sequence which called for a heartbreaking line with Morgan H. Stark. We can’t blame him for dodging the bullet of spoiling something and getting fired like Hulk aka Mark Ruffalo, though.
“I’m part of the Stark family of companies, and a lot of time has passed since the last one, so a lot’s implied,” Jon Favreau said.
