There are several questions still lingering after the events of Avengers: Endgamewhich pretty firmly wrapped up the team's story in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but one in particular affects Peter Parker's world. How did Peter and Nick Fury manage to avoid crossing each other's paths until Spider-Man: Far From Home when they were both at Tony Stark's funeral?

Director Jon Watts has an answer which he revealed to Total Film magazine in a recent interview -- and the reason doesn't clash at all with continuity or "fake out" the audience, he promises.

“No, it’s not a fake-out,” Watts said of the scene where Fury sedates Ned in front of Peter. “They actually talk about why they didn’t talk in [Endgame]," he stated, reiterating, "It’s not a fake-out. But there is more to [this subject] than meets the eye"

That "something more" is Watts's exploration of the dynamic between a 17-year-old hero embodied in Parker and a grizzled globetrotting spy in Fury.

“I always wanted to put our idealistic teenage hero Peter Parker against a jaded, world-weary super spy like Nick Fury,” Watts further explained. “I always thought that would be such a great combination of conflict and relationship to explore. That was something that was in my very, very, very first pitch and my very first meeting at Marvel — I was like, ‘I want to see this kid go up against this bad motherf—ker,’ you know? Tony Stark is like the cool, supportive rich uncle. Nick Fury is more like the mean, new stepdad. And I just thought it would be really fun to see those two worlds collide.”

Directed by Jon Watts and starring Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal, Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into theaters July 2.
