Every so often, I will hear that the latest Marvel film has the best post or mid-credits scene in the entire cinematic universe.
However, when I eventually see the film, and the scene, I am almost always left disappointed.
Coming into Spider-Man: Far From Home I had heard nothing about its mid-credits scene, which is why I was pleasantly surprised to find it is my favourite in the entirety of the MCU.
There are two great twists and an amazing cameo that make this moment more than worth the wait.
The post-credits scene is good too and, happily, so is the rest of the film.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far From Home sees Peter Parker (Tom Holland) on a school trip overseas, where he plan to confess his feelings for Mary Jane (Zendaya).
However, his plans change when Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) ropes him in on a mission to save the world by helping a hero from the multiverse named Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal).
Now, although I said the film is good, it is a bit slow going at first and does have a few rushed moments.
For example, the growing friendship between Peter and Mysterio’s Quentin Beck felt like it happened too quickly, with an absurd level of trust built between them in such a small amount of time.
Then there is this big exposition scene that could have been a lot better and is saved only by Gyllenhaal’s charisma.
However, after this exposition scene, the film goes full throttle with explosive action, culminating in a great third act.
Along with this, the comedy is also very good with Happy Hogan (Jon Faverau) and Peter’s friend Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) being particularly funny.
Then there is the relationship between Peter and M.J, who both have fantastic chemistry in their scenes, which are well performed by their actors.
Overall, I would say Spider-Man: Far From Home is another great addition to the MCU.
It is not quite as good as Home Coming but still very enjoyable.
Just be sure to sit through the credits to watch the amazing mid-credits scene.
