The just-revealed (supposedly) plot of Spider-Man: Far From Home holds many mysteries, but one thing it will apparently have is a scene in which a dark twist befalls Peter Parker, a la the notorious scene of Adrian Toomes deducing his identity in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

“There’s a scene in this film where audiences will feel like they were punched in the face," Holland said at a press event when asked if Far From Home had a scene comparable to Homecoming's aforementioned Vulture scene - specifically involving Peter and not Spider-Man (via ScreenRant). "Even filming it, I remember walking out and then watching it again on the monitors and asking [director Jon Watts], ‘Are you sure that’s okay?’ And he’s like, ‘No, it’s not. People are going to hate this scene.’ But it really… God, it’s pretty crazy. And it’s very similar in the way that it’s very tense, and it sort of rips the rug from underneath your feet. It’s pretty awesome.”

The likely guess is that Mysterio, presented as a heroic traveler from another world, will be someone other than he claims - not exactly a shocker for the master of illusion and misdirection. But there's also the possibility of a twist involving Nick Fury, or perhaps the Chameleon - or both.

Of course, it could also be something entirely different - perhaps involving the trailer scene in which MJ appears to deduce Peter Parker's secret identity.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is due out in North American theaters July 2.
