The Secret Theme of ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’
The following post contains spoilers for Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is about heroes and villains, spider-guys and mystery men. But it’s also about a theme with huge and extremely timely relevance to our own non-super world: The power of belief.
The new video essay above by ScreenCrush’s Ryan Arey explores how belief — in oneself, in the media, in the authorities — is crucial to everything that happens in Marvel’s latest blockbuster. It’s what Mysterio uses upon his arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it’s the thing that will propel Spidey into his next film following Far From Home’s shocking cliffhanger. It’s also something that drives our society, and particularly the world of politics, so understanding this element of the film is more important than ever.
