Spider-Man: Far From Home opened with a video montage made by Peter Parker’s classmates. This showed the effects of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame’s reality altering Thanos finger snap. In the video it was shown that the event was known as “The Blip” to the denizens of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But fans in the real world had already come up with a name for it- The Snap. So which one is the official name for the catastrophy?
What Should The Thanos Catastrophy Be Called By In The MCU?
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige says that there is room for both names in the MCU. Feige in an interview with Fandango clarified the “The Blip” name:
“It came pretty fast. We always referred to it as the Blip and then the public started referring to it as the Snap. We think it’s funny when high school kids just call this horrific, universe changing event the Blip. We’ve narrowed it down to, the Snap is when everybody disappeared at the end of Infinity War. The Blip is when everybody returned at the end of Endgame…and that is how we have narrowed in on the definitions.”
