Spoilers ahead for Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Spider-Man: Far From Home's buzzy mid-credits scene was more than just a shock to moviegoers, but it will have significant reverberations and be the major Peter Parker story going into the third planned Spider-Man film, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.

"Much like the end of Iron Man, saying, okay, the rules have changed. Which now means we're going to have to do something completely different next time," Feige told Fandango. "The how and the when and the specifics can change and evolve, but setting yourself up for something that has never been done before... at the end of Iron Man, it was a hero publicly outing himself so that in the next movies and all subsequent movies, we couldn't fall back on the secret identity trope which had been part of Iron Man's story for decades in the comics."

"And now people know Peter's identity. People now think he's a villain, Mysterio plays one last trick on him and succeeds... [so that] means everything's different," Feige continued. "Where it goes, we'll see. But it's exciting that it once again sets us up for a Peter Parker story that has never been done before on film."

While a third Spider-Man film has yet to be announced, Tom Holland has said he thinks a third film would take place with Peter and his friends as high school seniors.
