The ending to the epic extravaganza that was Avengers: Endgame left us with more questions than answers regarding what the future held for the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including who (if anyone) would be a suitable replacement for the late, great Iron Man as the face of the franchise. I saw Captain Marvel's name brought up in a few different places, which I understood based off how successful her solo film was earlier this year, but she didn't feel well suited for the role in my opinion.
Spider-Man, on the other hand, definitely did, especially given his ties to Tony Stark from his first film in 2017 as well as their interactions in Infinity War and Endgame. It honestly only made sense for the torch to be passed to Peter Parker after the emotional passing of Stark at the conclusion of Endgame. If you saw Spider-Man: Far From Home (and if you haven't by now, why the hell not?), then you would know it certainly looked like Marvel was headed in that direction. Obviously, Iron Man wasn't technically in the movie, but he might as well have been considering there were so many references to him throughout.
Coming off last week's heartbreaking news that Spider-Man is out the MCU effective immediately, Spidey being pushed to the forefront of the MCU no longer appears to be a possibility.
