The mid-credits scene starts as Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and MJ (Zendaya) are finishing up their swing around New York together, and end up in downtown Manhattan. The two are about to go their separate ways when a huge nearby screen lights up with a news break from the Daily Bugle, which looks like it’s transitioned into an InfoWars-style video site in the MCU. And then we see J Jonah Jameson, played by none other than JK Simmons, reprising his role from the Sam Raimi “Spider-Man” flicks.

Jameson, declaring as usual that Spidey is a menace who was the true cause of the whole Elementals thing, plays video from Mysterio’s last moments, manipulated to make it look like Spidey murdered Mysterio in cold blood. Then Jameson plays another video, shot seconds before the other one, in which Mysterio himself unmasks Spidey, revealing that it’s young Peter Parker behind the mask.

That’s crazy, but it doesn’t quite match the madness of the bonus scene at the end of the credits — which is the one that gives us a look ahead.

In the post-credit scene, we learn that Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) were not actually Nick Fury and Maria Hill in “Far From Home” — instead, they were the shapeshifter Talos (Ben Mendolsohn) and his wife, fellow Skrull shapeshifter Soren in disguise. After reverting to their normal green alien form, Talos makes a call to Fury to fill him in on how everything ended up going with Mysterio. Fury, it turns out, was actually out on a spaceship somewhere with a bunch of Skrulls, doing who-knows-what.
