Spiderman: Far From Home' Director Reveals The Fate Of Aunt May After The Snap

The directors of the movie recently confirmed that Spiderman's Aunt May was decimated after Thanos snapped his fingers.

A brand new trailer of 'Spiderman: Far From Home' was released two days back and it revealed that the events of the movie pick up right after Tony Stark undid the Mad Titan's snap and will also begin exploring the long-term effects of Thanos' devastating snap from 'Avengers: Infinity War' and its subsequent undoing in 'Avengers: Endgame'. After being turned to dust for five long years, Peter Parker, Nick Fury, and half of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will begin readjusting as they re-enter a world that started to move without them.


In an interview with Fandango, 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' director Jon Watts revealed that Aunt May was one of the victims of Thanos' snap. Watts added, "She disappeared and came back." The fans and the audience have caught a brief glimpse of her standing next to Peter Parker at Tony Stark's funeral in 'Avengers: Endgame'. But Watts' statement contradicts an earlier statement from Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed Infinity War and Endgame, that said that Aunt May survived the snap.


Peter's core high school friends and Aunt May, along with Michelle and Ned Leeds will return as the same age they were when they disappeared. Given the fact that their other peers and friends have aged along with time,  the snap survivors could find themselves in some awkward situations. Watts added, "That's one of the fun things that we get to play with -- the sort of real-world, ground-level implications of something like that. You don't get to see any of the fallout in 'Endgame', and we get to explore that in our movie. It's really interesting and fun."


The trailer of the movie showed that the friendly neighborhood Spiderman will encounter Nick Fury and Mysterio while he is on a Europe trip along with his friends and Watts added that the latest Spiderman movie will explore how all of them were adjusting to a post-'Endgame' world. Watts added, "In classic New York style, everyone is just moving on and getting on with their daily lives. Ya know, half the people that disappeared are now back, so let's move on."


'Spiderman: Far From Home' will release on July 2 and it is being directed by Jon Watts. The movie stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei, and Jake Gyllenhaal.
